Lauren and Chris. Such a sweet couple, and they had a beautiful October wedding. They were married under the arch, with orange roses and green hanging amaranthus providing a gorgeous backdrop.
A non-traditional couple, Lauren walked with both her parents from the front door of the Mansion to the back of the aisle where she met Chris. The bride and groom walked hand-in-hand the rest of the way down the aisle.
Lauren carried a bouquet of green hydrangeas, cream roses, burgundy scabiosa, seeded euchalyptus, green hanging amaranthus, and looped bear grass and curly willow.
Boutonnieres consisted of spray roses… orange for the groomsmen, cream for the groom…. green hydrangea, looped bear grass and green hanging amaranthus wrapped in satin ribbon. The women wore corsages that were reversible between wrist corsages and pinned-on corsages, so the wearer could choose which they preferred.
A bride for details, Lauren had beautifully-typed cards for the menu items, which were placed next to each dish.
“Pear, Cowgirl Creamery Triple Cream Cheese and Olive Tarts”
“Roasted Squash Bites with Pumpkin Seed Pesto”
The bride and groom had a moment alone in the Mansion after the ceremony to enjoy appetizers and champagne and celebrate their new marriage.
Cute little boxes of muffin mix were the favors for the guests, and they sat atop each napkin at the place setting. Each box had a monogrammed sticker and was hand-tied with satin ribbon.
A one-of-a-kind bridal cake featured a bird’s nest with love birds sitting atop a three-tiered carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. A leaf motive was perfect for the Fall season. The groom’s cake was a chocolate zucchini cake with buttercream icing… how many couples can say there were vegetables in their wedding cake? Honestly though, it was incredibly tasty and not the least bit healthy except for the fact that it was organic.
The couple left the Ballroom in a shower of sparklers. They had so much fun, they turned around and came back for another round. Congratulations Lauren and Chris, we’ll miss you!
Jake Holt—what can we say, but thank you for these wonderful images! Stunning!
