An All White Wedding That’s Truly Timeless

If there was ever a wedding that would have me begging for a vow renewal, it would be this piece of pretty captured by Blaine Siesser. A day complete with the sweetest pups, a decadent cake a la Sweet Heather Anne, one stunning floral arch, and a few bottles of bubbly, it’s enough to have any and every Bride inspired and/or asking for a reception re-do. See it all for yourself in The Vault!

From Blaine Siesser Andrea & Brandon celebrated their nuptials at Meadowbrook Mansion. It was a beautiful event designed and styled by Kehoe Designs. Sharing her favorite wedding memory she said: “Walking down the aisle. Seeing my groom looking at me like I was the only person in the world. Seeing our parents beaming, our friends hysterical. We both always felt everyone was always rooting for us, but at that moment we felt it.” Surprisingly, getting ready at her home was one of her favorite parts of the day. She said, “Getting ready in our home was very important to me. It felt so special to be close to all the memories that Brandon and I have shared there; to be with my sister, friends, and of course our dogs. It was the most serene wedding morning I could ever have imagined.” Her favorite photos where of “…. Us on the bridge in front of the mansion. These three photos exude exactly how we both felt about planning a big wedding. Of course we enjoyed some parts of the planning process, but in our case we actually didn’t expect all of the heightened emotions, compromises, and tensions that a big wedding could create. At the end of the day, all that mattered was that we loved each other and that was all that mattered to us. These photographs remind me of that.

From Clane Gessel PhotographyAn elegant Bay Harbor Yacht Club wedding in Petoskey, Michigan. The bride chose soft colors for her outdoor ceremony. The bridesmaids were dressed in a variety of light pinks and champagnes; the groomsmen in classy navy suits with subtle polka dots a black collar and matching black bowties, but don’t miss out on their snazzy yellow polka dot dress socks too! The ceremony had white petals down the aisle and a wooden cross at the alter. The reception was inside the yacht club decorated with gold candle holders, lit white candles, white roses to match and a variety of greens. The inside had a rustic feel with wooden signs and antique tables.

The proposal took place in Lake Tahoe, CA during a hiking trip. Aaron planned a surprise picnic on the beach.
