One of the greatest joys of what we do is getting a front row seat to the relationships of some truly wonderful families and couples. One we know we won’t soon forget is Emily + J.D. — both they and their families are so close-knit and kind, which made our experience with them so special! We were honored to be a part of their entire wedding weekend, from the backyard rehearsal dinner at Emily’s parents’ home, right through to the sparkler exit after their fall wedding reception at the Ritz Charles.
The rehearsal dinner was on the casual side (think gingham napkins, upscale barbecue, a lemonade stand, and darling cowboy boots for the bride!), while the wedding was elegant and full of charm. Emily + J.D. had a clear vision for both events, but ultimately, cared so much more about the fact that they were getting married. With that in mind, they intentionally selected details that were simple, but made a statement — just take a look at those gorgeous gold bridesmaid dresses! Bella Sorella Floral Design did an exquisite job incorporating seasonal blooms and colors into the floral arrangements, giving the design just the right touch of autumnal flair.
Thank you, Emily + J.D., for inviting us to be a part of your fall wedding weekend. It was a privilege to share in the excitement of your families and we know that your marriage will be just as joyful!
