We aren’t sure where to start this blog post because Lara and Dave have become very special friends of ours over the last year. Watching these two friends get married is a truly special experience. You get all the feels times two! What an epic wedding at the beautiful Shadowbrook. This venue has the most beautiful grounds, timeless decor and amazing staff. Lara and Dave are two of the most fun people and they surrounded themselves with the exact same people. We probably laughed more at this wedding then we did the entire week. As I write this blog post, I know they are in Hawaii celebrating big time!
The day was off to a fast start when Lara and Dave had their fist look at the Marina in Redbank. It was a super bright and sunny day with a breeze as they got ready to see each other for the first time by the water. A boat nearby had music playing in the backdrop as Lara decided a surprise butt grab was the best way to greet Dave on their wedding day. Bingo! I think its safe to say that Lara’s veil stole the show several times during the day. Most brides would be annoyed and ready to be rid of the veil, but she kept saying, “It looks good, doesn’t it!”. Yes, it did! The ceremony was set outdoors with beautiful flowers and green grass. It was an emotional ceremony with a few big laughs, of course. There was a wine ceremony which was quite unique. I think Lara and Dave soon realized that mixing red and white wine together is not always a winning combo as they both took a sip from the giant wine glass. :) The party was non-stop from there. A beautiful outdoor cocktail hour with the most amazing food and drink combinations. The lighting, the speeches, the dances, the people, the music- it was an epic night. A special Viennese hour was held during the last hour of the night with amazing sweet treats of all kinds. Cotton candy, ice cream bar and crazy desserts of all kinds!
What a crazy, awesome day. We are so happy to call you friends and even more happy you are now married!!! Can’t wait to see you soon and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day and your marriage! CONGRATS!
