For today’s Wedding Recap, we will be looking at Elise and Matt’s classic cathedral ceremony and luscious garden reception. This adorable couple were the picture of elegance and love throughout their day.
The photos for the day started with the couple doing their first look at the Cathedral of the Incarnation. Matt was so happy to see his beautiful bride!
Elise’s bridesmaid’s wore gorgeous floor length lavender gowns with crystal belts, while Matt’s groomsmen wore sleek black suits and ties.
Elise and Matt want their beliefs to be a central part of their marriage, and therefore a focus of their wedding day so they opted for a longer ceremony with mass.
Have you ever seen two people look so happy to be married?
Bride and Groom Photos
Elise’s stunning ballgown had a jewel embellished bodice and multi-layer tulle train. The bride wore her hair down in soft, cascading curls, with a pearl encrusted pin holding her veil during the ceremony. The bride and groom had many gorgeous portraits taken by Sue White Photography that they will cherish forever!
The garden reception venue, Long Hollow Gardens, provided the perfect backdrop for these romantic shots. Whether the ceremony, reception, or other venue, incorporating a beautiful backdrop will make wedding pictures so much more enchanting!
All of the couple’s colors circled around greenery and light purple blossoms including lavender, seen here on the invitation suite and in one of the groomsmen’s boutonniere, and Irises, as in the Tennessee themed guest register below.
Reception centerpieces utilized white hydrangeas in magnificent cylinder vases and rose gold metallic votive candles all on beds of real moss. The other centerpieces were rose gold terrariums filled with twinkle lights and more moss.
The sweetheart table was extra special with a rose gold sequin linen and white garden roses. The couple even got a hanging wisteria from Anthropology to hang behind them.
The wonderful cake by Patty Cakes featured naked layers and real lavender, creating a rustic elegance. Looks scrumptious!
The bride and groom learned how to ballroom dance for their amazing first dance, and Elise made the most of her gorgeous skirt!
Elise and Matt have so many people who love them that there were a bunch of people who toasted to the newlyweds. Elise’s reaction is priceless.
We wish Elise and Matt a life filled with love and happiness, and thank them for allowing us to be a part of their unforgettable day!
