What a beautiful day for a beautiful couple! The weather cooperated so well this weekend, in comparison to the snow it provided last weekend! Victoria’s grandparent’s and parents transformed an ordinary looking ‘trailer’ shed into an elegant looking ceremony site. I do have to mention that the night before when we were having rehearsal there was a very big surprise. Vicky’s mom and dad renewed their vows! I really wish I had my camera. Vicky’s mom and dad celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary on May 21, but were busy helping Ryan and Vicky so her dad decided to ask Carillon to assist in renewing their vows. I had some pretty good tears!
Please note the photos below are taken by myself . Photographer’s photos to follow.
The bridesmaids were all wearing black cocktail dresses alternating in sash colors (green & purple) and carrying a simple hand tied bouquets of three white calla lilies, the groomsmen were well suited with black suits alternating in ties and packet squares – of course matching their corresponding bridesmaids! Vicky had a beautiful bouquet with a mixture of deep purple calla lilies and stargazer lilies, Ryan a matching purple calla lily.
Vicky looked stunning and very classy wearing grandma’s pearls, they suited her so well!
The centerpieces are all handmade. Yes all of it from the vase to the flowers in the vases. They looked stunning and filled the space beautifully. The damask (brocade) printed table clothes were on every other table and it was the perfect balance of texture and pattern.
How cute are they, really?
Ashley Champange assisted with these awesome and adorable table numbers. The photos were taken during their engagement session. They held up a blank piece of paper and Ashley digitally edited them. Each table had a different photo, it was uber cute and reflected the personality of Vicky and Ryan.
The cake was a show stopper that Ryan was very excited for. Each layer was a different type of cake, I had the lemon poppy seed which was very delicious!
I had to throw this one.
Note to every bride, you must keep hydrated when partying!
I wish you both all the best and much deserved happiness, I was truly honored to be a party of your beautiful special day. I also enjoyed the company of the most generous and absolutely sweet families. And thank you to the groomsmen and bridesmaids who followed direction very well!
