Today we’re recapping Brianne & Troy’s destination wedding from November! Both their ceremony and reception were held in the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Brianne and Troy came all the way from Washington state to get married in this growing destination wedding location.
The day started with Brianne and her bridesmaids getting hair and makeup done. Bri’s dress was the perfect fit for her personality and she looked absolutely stunning. After some finishing touches, Brianne and Troy met at Centennial Park for the first look. Josh of Tracy Shoopman Photography captured these stunning pictures. Wait until you see the picture with their sweet baby, Ethan.
We love this picture of Troy seeing his bride for the first time.
After the first look, it was time for the wedding party to get in on the photo action. The bridesmaids had long, beautiful grey dresses with yellow ribbons around their bouquets. In case you didn’t notice it above, Bri had a beautiful brooch bouquet that she made herself.
The ceremony was held in the main lobby of the Schermerhorn. The entry table had a display of the night’s schedule as well as decor that matched the reception. The aisle chiavari chairs had long pieces of ribbon hanging from them.
Brianne was escorted down the aisle by her father, Brian. Brianne and Troy had sealed love letters written to each other. They placed those letters along with a bottle of wine in a unity box and nailed it closed to be opened on their one year anniversary.
The new Mr. and Mrs. went to take more pictures while guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour. Josh Shoopman is so talented and does amazing work!
The entry table outside the Mike Curb Room had seating cards with grey and white lollipops. For the kids, there were coloring books with toys for each of them. Guest favors were these adorable jars of spices with a secret family recipe. The centerpieces included decks of cards, an “I Spy” game and the table numbers were on wine bottles. There was also a photo booth area with a ribbon backdrop. Guests dined on a very delicious buffet-style dinner from Flavor Catering!
This beautiful and tasty cake was from Sophisticakes. The little icing swirls added so much extra to the look of the cake and cupcakes. How cute are the little love bird cake toppers?!
Brianne and Troy shared their first dance as Mr. and Mrs. to “I Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis. They followed up their first dance with father/daughter and mother/son dances.
Cake cutting and toasts were done before everyone danced the night away!
Congratulations Brianne and Troy! We are so blessed to have been a part of your big day. We wish you both the best!
