If a wedding could sweep me off my feet, it would be a wedding like this one. Romantic as they come, complete with soft hues and a celebration under the stars, this pretty little party has all the elements to make my wedding-obsessed self smitten. It's just divine. Events of Love and Splendor edited all the details in such a way that that my heart was sure to sing, and you can see it all come to life through the ah-mazing piece of cinema magic by Elysium Productions after all the gorgeous images from Hugh Forte Photography. It's enough to make you want to jump for joy, and you can join me in doing so in the pretty as can be full gallery!

As promise, here is the goodness from Elysium Productions...
From the Bride... Rob and I are both landscape architects and enjoy spending time outdoors. We chose our venue because of the beautiful, majestic oak trees and sparkling twinkle lights visible throughout the property. It became the inspiration in conceptualizing the setting for our wedding day. We wanted to create a space within the landscape for people to experience an intimate ceremony.  

Our color palette was soft and romantic with a blend of peach, apricot and gray.  The reception was very romantically decorated with soft ambient lighting from the bistro lights and accented with luxurious candlelight. We wanted our guests to eat, drink and be merry.  We had an amazing meal provided by the venue, a sinfully delicious three-tiered wedding cake, fresh organic ice cream, dancing, a Smilebooth and an amazing jazz band. Additional special touches of a bread seating chart, strawberry bellinis and gorgeous table décor were icing on the cake. Our friends and family had an absolutely grand time.

Our most memorable moments were moments we had with our fathers. I was very fortunate to be able to walk down the aisle with my father and dance with him during the father-daughter dance. These are moments where nothing else matters, and I have this memory I will cherish for the rest of my life. And last but not least, we were fortunate to have Angel Swanson, of Events of Love and Splendor, who took our ideas and executed them wonderfully. Through our yearlong friendship, she was very accommodating, creative and reassured me of all my qualms I experienced during the planning stage. I had full confidence in her abilities. I am so thankful that Style Me Pretty is featuring our wedding. We dedicate this in memory to our fathers, George and Stephen.
