The evening of October 21, 2017 our VIW team was able to play a small part in such a special wedding day for Lesley and Fadi. The tone was set for the ceremony by a couple that is whole heartedly head over heels for one other. This wedding was sure to be one of their most memorable and special moments as they start this journey of life together!
Excitedly, the wedding party wasted no time and began to get ready for the big day! The bridesmaids started with hair and makeup by MHD beauty while the bride-to-be was to follow! The simplistic love and grace of this wedding was shown in even the smallest details.
All the while, the Groomsmen knew exactly how to celebrate with the groom in the most fun way!
Letter Reading Photos
Lesley and Fadi decided to take a moment, before the ceremony to find a quiet space to read the thoughtful and intimate words they shared for one another through a letter.
Bridal Party Photos
The hair and makeup was finished which meant this spunky bridal party was off for a few pictures! The photographer, Nashville Wedding Collection, caught every perfect moment such as the one below. The bride is radiating with beauty as her closest friends smile at her with pure joy to be sharing this moment with her, and all the while the beautiful biscotti colored bridesmaid dresses mesh perfectly with the elegant and simple bouquets Lesley chose. The brides lace detail draping down the shoulder brings the classy and simplisticity together!
As for the groomsmen, well they are rocking the black tuxedos with a nice touch of a classic bow tie.
Wedding Ceremony Details
The entrance of this ceremony was quite elegant with the beautiful three tiered stone behind the golden framed welcome glass window, and not to mention the perfect sunny day we were graced with for the evening. The tall wooden doors with exquisite carvings held a eucalyptus wreath that added a touch of color for the entrance. Lesley’s bouquet had garden roses, ranunculus, spray roses and lisianthus mixed in with assorted greenery.
As shown in the first picture below this groom was smiling in complete awe of his bride that was heading his way. Lesley made a beuatiful bride and picked an amazing dress. The dress was detailed with lace throughout, while right at the shoulders the lace fell down the arm and a nude mesh ran down the arm to the wrists where the lace detailing picked back up…can you say GORGEOUS!
The couple had chosen to wait until the ceremony to see one another and oh how that made this moment so cherished!
Bride and Groom Photos
The Bride and Groom enjoyed the togetherness of their shots and were found naturally in love behind the camera!
This photo is simply striking, the photographer was able to capture thier love underneath this beautiful magnolia tree. They were not camera shy as every image was bold and beautiful for this couple!
Wedding Party Photos
Joyfully this wedding party kept the day alive! Each of thier bright personalities helped make this day one to celebrate to honor these two!
Elegantly the gold, brass, and greenery made a statement at this wedding from the tall brass centerpieces to the petite gold trim on the charger plates, this was a timeless wedding!
The matches favor packaging was very classic, with a hint of gold on the crisp white box below. It was a perfect grab for guests as they headed out for the night!
While everyone concluded their meals Lesley and Fadi hit the dance floor to start the evening with their first dance, father/daughter dance as well as mother/son dance.
Furthermore, as gorgeous as this cake is it was very delicious as well! As they cut their cake and share with one another the cheers from the excited guests erupted!
PURE JOY. Those are the words that come to mind when enjoying this photo below. Before the band could finish thirty minutes worth of music the guests were JOYFULLY celebrating this couple with wonderful memories that were made on this special day!
Taking a small break from dancing, the focus turned to bringing the single ladies out on the dance floor for the bouquet toss!
Sadly, before we knew it we had reached the end of the night and had the newlywed couple walking down the pathway that was filled with guests there to send them off with a toss of pedals and well wishes.
Lesley and Fadi’s night was nothing short of classic and elegant from beginning to end!
