From wedding planner, Tobey Dodge:
Katie and Jason set out to find the perfect location that reflected their personal style and taste. Marvimon fit the bill to a tee. As Katie put it, they were after an elegant and undone look. Unpretentious, a friendly romantic vibe set the tone for an evening filled with gratitude for finding each other and sharing their love with their closest and dearest friends and family.
Because more guests said yes than they thought, made for some cozy seating, but it just goes to show how many people wanted to be there to celebrate their most perfect union. The ceremony was held in the high walled garden in the rear of the property. Surrounded by brick walls, hanging vines and crushed granite and sand beneath them, they exchanged their vows simply with the two of them standing with their officiant who brought Eastern spiritual rights and Western customs together.
The guests were served champagne immediately following the ceremony as the catering staff and coordinators repositioned the bentwood chairs inside to fill the rows of dark wooden tables for the upcoming dinner hour. The 20 foot plus high ceilings exposing duct work and vintage hanging lamps created that undone yet rich mixture of textures and mood lighting Katie and Jason were after to surround their guests in a one of a kind visual and emotional experience.
The heartwarming welcome speech by Katie's Dad set the tone for the honest, loving, and fun portrayal of the newly married couple. Servers hand carried the mouth watering culinary duet of New Your Steak and Pan seared Halibut to each guest. The delicious meal was topped off by a stacked cake that had dollops of icing to ring each layer of the 4 tiered cake matching that freeform yet sophisticated vibe. Katie and Jason's words spoke volumes of how happy they were to be breaking bread with the people they feel most connected to and dance the night away while their DJ artfully wove tunes from several genres, giving everyone a chance to enjoy the happily crowded dance floor. From the personalized place card numbers made by Katie to the collection of carefully chosen eclectic small and tall vases to create the floral table landscapes, Katie and Jason's fine artistic sensibilities and caring attitude toward their guests were felt throughout the entire event.
