After putting on her gown, Brittany was off to Riverdale Manor to meet Sean for their first look under the big oak tree. Just as they saw each other for the first time, rain clouds came over Riverdale and drops started to fall. Sean held an umbrella over them as they walked back up to the house to get ready for the ceremony. The rain clouds didn't keep Sean and Brittany from having an outdoor ceremony under the lit up pergola at the Manor. Thyme and Season's Catering created a delicious menu and Petals with Style decorated the reception space.

Meredith and Dave's wedding this past January was our first of 2014 and what a gorgeous day they had! Prep for the day began in the morning at Hotel Monaco where Meredith and her bridesmaids were pampered and spent the morning relaxing. While Dave spent the morning getting ready at the home with his groomsmen. Meredith asked her bridesmaids to choose a black dress in their own choice of style which looked great with their wildflower bouquets. The bride's gown was a stunning 3/4 length sleeve lace gown that Meredith finished off with a simple veil and cute red shoes- she looked incredible! The couple chose to have a first look and it was so romantic and they were so happy to see each other. After a few photos it was time to make things official! The couple's personal and touching ceremony was officiated by a Reverend that had also married several of the bride's family members, including the bride's parents! After recessing down the aisle and getting ready to head over to cocktail hour, Dave asked Meredith to share in some alone time and the couple walked over to the reception by themselves. Over at The Down Town Club, tables were topped with different groups of flowers that featured curly willow, branches, and green and dark pink flowers. The table numbers were a floral design placed in gold frames to match the gold vessels that contained the centerpieces. Guests favors were chocolate truffles and were placed at each place setting to add to the decor of the room. As guests entered the ballroom, you could really start to feel the love in the room and see how happy all of the guests were for the newlyweds! Everyone packed onto the dance floor and danced the night away and right after the bouquet toss, the couple left the party to head back to the hotel on their own.
