Laura and Matthew’s Glamourous Summer WeddingDecember 1, 2022
Laura and Matthew’s wedding day is one we won’t soon forget. They both wanted to embrace glamour throughout their celebration, and they wove some of the most beautiful details throughout their day. We can’t wait to share more with you!
One of the great things about our venue is we’re able to welcome couples to our space prior to their ceremony. That means they get to enjoy all of their getting ready moments onsite (with time to relax!). Laura and Matthew both took advantage, and we loved having them and their bridesmaids and groomsmen with us throughout the day.
Prior to their ceremony, the couple wanted to share a first look together. We have plenty of indoor locations, but our grounds and gardens are always among the favorites for this moment—the lighting is beautiful! Matthew got into place first, and then Laura walked up behind him before he turned around. They were thrilled to see each other, and we always think first looks help everyone to release any nerves they might be feeling.
Laura and Matthew’s guests arrived for their outdoor wedding ceremony, and then it was time for Laura to walk down the aisle. They recited their vows in the sunlight as their guests looked on, and we also have to note how much we loved the circular arch they chose to have at the top of their altar.
During cocktail hour, guests sipped on drinks, dined on appetizers, and mingled together while Laura and Matthew stepped away to capture more photos with their photographer. They again explored the grounds because the weather could not have been more perfect! Meanwhile, final preparations were made inside the ballroom in order for everyone to be welcomed inside.
L+M made a fun entrance into their reception and went right into their first dance. As they were swaying together, cold sparklers went off next to lights spelling out their new shared last name. This is always a surprise to guests, and it makes for an incredible photo! Everyone dined on a menu created by our team, listened to speeches, enjoyed a piece of L+M’s beautiful all-white cake, and packed the dance floor.
This beautiful wedding is the perfect example of everything we love about our venue: a great couple, fun families, beautiful design, and wonderful weather. Congratulations again, Laura and Matthew! #FiorellaAfterAll
