We had everything from food trucks, a piñata, a balloon sculptor, coloring book interactive ceremony programs (that my husband designed himself), donut tower cakes, to DIY decor and music brought to us by our very own friends!

Our amazing photographer, Mark Brooke, was able to capture it all.

Winter Wedding

I don’t know about you brides, but as soon as the leaves start falling off the trees, I’m thinking ahead to winter. The combination of cozy sweaters, crisp snowy weather, and the holidays make winter such a whirlwind, romantic time of the year! The romance of the season makes it an ideal time for weddings, and gives the bride and groom a lot of room to get creative and make their celebration especially warm, inviting and unique.
