Ah, Melissa and Kevin. They were such a wonderful couple. So happy to be getting married, so excited to share the day with their family and friends. Melissa was worried about the weather. Sometimes, no matter how much you plan, hope, and prepare for your wedding, the unexpected can happen. In this case, it was rain. Lots and lots of rain. This was the ONLY wedding we had in 2013 that was dealt such a torrential downpour of rain that there was no way, not even with a tent, any part of the day would allow people outside. At the rehearsal, we reassured Melissa that even if it did rain, she would be so caught up in the joy and celebration, it would hardly be noticed. And looking back, Melissa agreed.
Melissa chose a bright, brilliant fuchsia for her bridal party dresses, and with the colorful accents of her decor, the interior of the mansion blossomed with a feeling of spring that equaled the magnificence of its outside lawns. She even had a delectable candy table with a variety of delicious sweets that tantalized the guests throughout the evening. With their wonderful personalized details, the day was truly a success from start to finish.
Melissa got ready upstairs in our Bridal Suite
And had bridal portraits done on the balcony
While Kevin and his men posed for pictures in the loggia
The ceremony, which was supposed to take place on the vista, was moved to the West Ballroom.
Following their “I do’s”, the couple posed for pictures upstairs on the balcony
And then in the West Ballroom with their bridal party
The reception was catered by Aqua Turf with the DJ talents of FM Productions. Everyone had a wonderful time! Rain? What rain?!
Congratulations Melissa and Kevin! It was a joy to be part of your special day! We wish you all the best.
