True love has never looked so good! We cannot get over this beautiful wedding gallery! Michael and Mackenzie had such a stunning day here as they celebrated their love. Classic bride with a modern twist in unexpected color and detail. The toffee roses and stunning emerald pops of color woven into the ethereal white and green minimalistic vibe really brought interest visually into the story of the day.

It was all the light and airy vibes on this warm, sunny June afternoon. Our couple put all their time and planning into an indoor ceremony because they felt the light in there was just too good to pass up-and boy did the ceremony bring the light! The space was enveloped in the whispy white of ceiling fabric billowing over the center ceremony aisle, and draping at the altar with finishing touches of our chandelier and planked florals on either side.
Before the guests arrived, Mackenzie snuck down to the river and had a first look moment under the gazebo with her dad-such a sweet moment captured between them.
The wedding party was on the larger side ( not the worst problem to have, when you have so many that love you) and Michael and Mackenzie each had eight of their closest standing next to them on their wedding day. They included Leo in their wedding ceremony as the ring bearer and Mackenzie's Gram was their officiant!
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a beautiful, organic flow from the inside to the outside garden and front, stone terrace. The hallway was lined with large glass jars of fairy lights and moss with whirly twig.
Cocktail hour showcased the "Milano Mule" as their signature drink and a beer by Thimble Island that honored an uncle, called "Hero" which were just a few more intentional details to make the day even more special.
Dinner was served after their salad course, which was a plated choice of mouth-watering, melt-in-your-mouth sliced filet with demi-glace, a lighter choice of lemon pistachio crusted salmon, and for all the vegetarians- a fantastic vegetarian paella with artichokes, peppers, peas, and saffron rice. Traditional mashed potatoes with garlic and seasonal grilled vegetables accompanied our two standard protein options.
Dessert included a wedding cake- a gorgeous lemon raspberry with white buttercream frosting which was served alongside a gluten-free groom's cake that was lemon raspberry as well. Mini cannolis, assorted cookies, brownies, and bars were the perfect bite to grab on the way back onto the dance floor! The guests really enjoyed the music and there were some great dance moves.
At the end of the evening, the magic of a candle-lit exit and the Essex Steam train swept our couple and their guests away to their after-party!
Congratulations you two love birds. Wishing you all the happiness in the world, Mackenzie, Michael, and Leo!
