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

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

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.

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.

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

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!

Lanterns in the trees and a heart balloon, a beautiful evening, a lovely bride, and a very proud papa!

 

That’s the string quartet, Music by Anthem, on the left, with just over 100 guests in the ceremony garden.

 

The weather was great, so everyone was outside for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The sharp-eyed can pick out Executive Chef Jonathan Soudry of Rouge Fine Catering, in the white chef’s coat in the center of the image.

 

Pretty escort cards on cork bases, laid out just so.

 

What a cool way to whet your guest’s appetites!

 

The exquisite flowers on the chandeliers are by Fleur de Lis Florist.

 

The cake came from Sugarbakers Cakes.

 

Fleur de Lis Florist added a little love to the fireplace!
