Hillary Maybery and gorgeous weddings go hand-in-hand. And this Sun Valley beauty? Well, it takes lakeside romance to an entirely new level. Factor in pretty invites from Regas, elegant blooms by Tara Bella plus one jaw-dropping bride, and you’ve got a gallery that musn’t be missed. See every moment right over here!
From the Bride… We allowed the lake to shape our colors and themes, choosing navy blue Monique Lhuillier bridesmaid dresses, grey blue tablecloths, loose hanging vines and flowers, and mercury glass vases and candlesticks.
The flowers and decorations were exquisite, but it was the personal touches and little surprises that made the wedding memorable. To the astonishment of the wedding guests and wedding party, I was not waiting at the end of the aisle when Pachelbel started to play. Instead I came around the corner in the adjacent pond in a canoe rowed by my father. The entrance made for remarkable pictures and left a mark but it was the thirty minutes before, tucked behind trees sharing a bottle of champagne with my father that will remain the most memorable.
The lake also proved the best backdrop for a first dance that took place even before we went into the tent for dinner. Two band members played “Nobody Knows Me” by Lyle Lovett acoustically and Luke and I danced on the green grass with our guests circled around us cheering.
Inside the tent we began dancing as soon as our salad plates were taken away. Two tables were literally danced into the ground and the only way to encourage guests to leave was the promises of sliders and mini grilled cheese sandwiches served at the exit.
Almost six months later we are still in disbelief about how incredible the entire weekend was and it could not have been possible without our amazing wedding planner, Amanda Seaward, CK’s Restaurant, the Groove Merchants, and our extremely talented photographer Hillary Maybery.
