There’s nothing cuter than flower children, and look at those cool multi-colored (and multi-shaped) pedals they’re scattering!
Dora and Kyle processed into the garden together for their wedding ceremony.
The bride is a professor of poetry at a prestigious local university, so as you might expect, there was lots of poetry read at her wedding ceremony!
Kyle read his hand-written vows to Dora.
All of the readings were included in the program booklet that each guest received.
Dora read her (poetic) vows to Kyle.
And the kiss!
Dora and Kyle had a cocktail-style reception. What that means is that up to a third of the guests are seated – the honored, the infirm, and the elderly – and there are lots of high-top tables scattered about for guests to gather around. Food is served in such a way that it doesn’t require a knife to eat, and it’s usually found at a buffet or at stations, which are like a buffet that’s been broken up into pieces which are frequently sorted by type or theme, like a salad or carving station. It’s a full meal (hence, cocktail-style), sometimes also called heavy hors d’oeuvres.
Cocktail-style receptions work really well at Chase Court, where guests can wander back and forth through the gardens, ballroom, foyer, and library.
The hors d’oeuvres were gorgeous! They were offered to guests by Rouge’s fabulous servers.
Dora and Kyle went with three complimentary colors of table linen, which created a festive look. Pro tip: three colors don’t cost any more than one (even if it’s white)!
