Despite the rainstorm that caused the ceremony to be moved indoors, this was a fantastic wedding! The ceremony took place inside the historic building, in front of a wall of windows. Tyler and her bridal party wore floor-length white dresses and carried bouquets of white flowers and greenery. Kyle and his groomsmen wore beige tuxes and vests with white shirts. They all wore soft green vests and ties. The colors of the day were white and green, so the wedding party looked perfect. One aspect of the wedding that I liked was the guest’s attire. They were asked to wear white, and they all did. It’s so unusual to see guests wear white to a wedding but I really liked the look. There was a unique accent to the ceremony that we hadn’t seen before: instead of a unity ceremony, the couple added dirt to a potted plant that they will later plant at their home.
The reception tables matched the colors of the day with their white floor-length cloths. They all had burlap runners, with a wood slice in the center. Each place setting had a gold charger, which matched the gold cake stands. The flowers that lined the ceremony aisle were repurposed to serve as centerpieces, where they sat on the wood slices. Tyler’s three-tiered, white, stacked cake was elegant in its simplicity. Each tier was smooth, and the only accents were three white roses and greenery on the middle tier. Kyle’s chocolate groom’s cake had chocolate ganache drizzled down the sides.
When it came time for dancing, this group was fun! They all flew in from out of state, and they came to have a great time! There was nonstop dancing from the first song to the last. We had so much fun just watching them! Sadly, the night had to come to a close with the last dance. Instead of a formal exit, the newlyweds chose to stay and say farewell to their guests. Congratulations Kyle and Tyler!
