|I knew Deann was exactly my kind of bride when she told me that her second dress was going to be more comfortable, "to eat the chocolate mousse." She also said that she, "couldn't decide," and I completely see why. She looked absolutely stunning in each one. They were the perfect mix of champagne and pink with rhinestones that looked like royalty. Jeff's tux fit like a glove and he looked like perfection in it. They not only looked the part but a photographer’s dream couple. They are funny, kind and gracious but most importantly they were so very happy. This day was a celebration. Surrounded by their loved ones they tied the knot in a beautifully intimate ceremony and were ready to celebrate the day.
With a forecast of 90% chance of rain all day, yes ALL day, I was prepped and ready for wet conditions. Whether it was the Rosary in the bushes or just fact that this was meant to be a perfect day (which Deann and Jeff got) we made it through without any rain! A ceremony in the gardens, cocktails on the patio and one beautifully decorated tent. There were garden lights wrapped in foliage, candlelit tables, colorful flowers by Bellisario and the perfect amount of sparkle. The dance floor remained full with tunes by Chateau, even as guests made trips to a room filled with deserts (check out their cake by Elegance in Sugar, words can't describe how fabulous this one was) a cigar roller, the photo booth and the late-night pizza station. They also had the cutest painted canvas for guests to sign. It was truly a day filled with happy memories. Congrats Deann and Jeff.
