Last September was filled with a lot of great weather for our brides and grooms and Laura and Hayden’s big day was no exception! There were a lot of special and unique touches to their wedding. They chose to keep their bridal party small so Laura and her three bridesmaids started their day with hair and makeup. The girls wore beautiful long navy blue gowns and Laura’s gown was a gorgeous fit and flare lace gown. Laura was a stunning bride! Hayden asked his football friends to serve as ushers and they wore black tuxes to match Hayden and his two groomsmen. The church decor was kept simple with floral pew bows and altar arrangements. A special touch was the lilac that was attached to each of the wedding programs, making the church filled with a lovely aroma! After they walked down the aisle as husband and wife, they headed out for pictures with their photographer, stealing kisses the entire time. You could really see the love between them! Meanwhile, guests were invited over to the Glencairn Museum for cocktail hour and a few toasts. They were able to take tours of the museum while they were there! Instead of a traditional sit down dinner, this laid back couple chose to treat their guests to a cocktail reception filled with lots of hors d’oeurves and delicious drinks. There were no table assignments so guests were able to choose their own seats at a mix of high and low tables decorated with eclectic clusters of vases. They surprised everyone with a choreographed first dance complete with a costume change into professional dancing costumes! It was a hit with everyone! It was really important to them for their guests to have a great time and do a lot of dancing- and the guests did exactly that! While everyone was on dancing the night away, they were treated to late night snacks on the dancefloor that included grilled cheese and french fries. A full dessert room was also set up and was filled with yummy treats and a large cannoli filled with small cannolis! It was a memorable night for everyone!
Congratulations Laura and Hayden!
