A wedding is a time for family and friends to come together from near and far to celebrate the special day for the bride and the groom. This past weekend I got to witness the marriage of my cousin Meaghan and her husband Chris. Now I could tell from the beginning that they had something special; something worth holding tight and making last forever. This was only further reconfirmed on their wedding day. I noticed that despite the chaos that accompanies such an extravaganza, they both seemed at ease. Nothing could get in the way of their perfect day because their “perfection” was already achieved – they had each other.
The wedding ceremony and reception was beautifully done, with anything and everything thought of and executed at a ten. An attention to detail was evident and exuded an ornate environment that was yet comfortable. This was achieved through an elegant farmhouse rustic feel that was embellished through fall tones, candle light and greenery. Not to mention the expansive patio that opened off of the rehearsal dinner that overlooked the lushness of fall. The warmness of the décor was matched with a night of great food, drink and company.
In my eyes, my cousin nailed it. She showed me that it is possible to have the detail every bride craves to achieve without it getting into the way of the true meaning of the day.
It is easy to lose sight of what is truly important due to the demand and pressure of such an event. The venue and décor was perfected however it was the memories transpired that really surpassed all expectations. Genuine enjoyment marked each guest’s face but most importantly it shone on the new husband and wife. Truly nothing could get in their way of a good day because it represented something more than just a grand party, but the start of a new chapter.
