On a warm and beautiful Sunday evening over Memorial Day weekend, we excitedly implemented the months of wedding planning we mapped out for a precious couple in the lush gardens of Marie Gabrielle.
Courtney and Brian had a few special requests for their late spring wedding: outdoor ceremony; same venue for both ceremony and reception; and the color red to figure prominently in the design.
We had an absolute blast working with this couple to make all of this happen, and the result was a beautiful and fun wedding!
Some of our favorite personalized touches from this lovely wedding included:
the red Toms Courtney and her bridesmaids changed into for dancing the night away,
the scrumptious cupcakes in lieu of a traditional wedding cake,
the eclectic mix of floral arrangements on tables throughout the dining area and
the country CD favor the couple sent home with their guests.
Thank you, Courtney and Brian, for entrusting your special day to us. We so enjoyed working with you and wish you a lifetime and love and laughter!
