Jessica and Ryan's wedding was held in the Versailles Garden at the resort which is surrounded by glistening white columns and sculptures. A 12th-century Augustinian cloister crowns the terraced steps of the gardens which overlook the resort’s veranda and pool. Large urns of roses in various shades of pink flanked the ceremony site and rose petals lined the aisle. Jessica and Ryan said their vows just as the sun began to go down on the magnificent setting. After the ceremony, the couple and their families celebrated into the night. The long dinner table was draped in layers of pink linen in different hues and elegantly dressed with massive arrangements of roses. A wedding dinner menu created by the chef at the resort featured local dishes like crab cakes with guava marmalade and freshly caught red snapper. The two-tiered wedding cake was topped with a large script crystal “L” monogram.
Friends and family gathered at Ted’s Garage on the auspicious date of 11-11-11 for Jessica and Ryan’s Birmingham reception. Jessica wore her wedding gown for the first part of the evening and then changed into a shimmering silver beaded dress so she could join her guests on the dance floor. The party went on into the night as everyone danced and toasted the happy couple.
