A Stylish September Wedding

LR-7821

Here’s a very happy man! Why? One guess…

 

LR-7817

His daughter, about to take her father’s arm and walk into the garden to marry her beloved!

 

LR-7806

All of the guests were given these elegant wands – in the wedding colors, of course – to ring (see the bells?) and wave to show their support for the bride and groom.

 

LR-7838

The groom came down to meet his bride at the bridge, while father and daughter embraced.

 

LR-7860-2

Laura and James, surrounded by friends, with their friend, Jae McCadden, officiating. Flowers & Fancies created the gorgeous white hydrangea and white rose display on the front of the pergola.

 

LR-7864

On to the reception! Did I mention stylish?

 

LR-7890

Champagne-colored satin table linens, walnut chiavari chairs with ivory seat covers, gorgeous white flowers, white napkins, and lots of candles! The look was clean, elegant, stunning!

 

LR-7901

The effect of the floating candles in glass cylinders, all grouped together, was outstanding!

 

LR-7905

This is one of the most elegant looks that we’ve ever seen at Chase Court.

 

LR-7912

Laura and James used chiavari chairs in a walnut color, which with their high vertical backs and “V” shape, visually supported the tall and wide flower arrangements.

 

LR-7908

A beautiful cake on an elegant cake stand, surrounded by a circle of candles. Just perfect!

Traditional Handfasting in the Garden

Jessi and Loran had a beautiful traditional handfasting in the Chase Court garden on a delightfully cool and comfortable August morning.

 

The light in the garden was absolutely glorious!

 

High Priestess Sage wrapped the handfasting cords around Jessi and Loran’s crossed hands. Each color carries its own special significance for the couple.

 

Meanwhile, yummy things await in the ballroom!

 

Lunch means light, and sandwiches were perfect! By the way, this is an easy way to have a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank.

 

What better favor for a Wiccan wedding than candles!
