Fairytale wedding

From Emily Sacra PhotographyIan & Suzy's elegant wedding at Whitehall Estate was nothing short of magnificent. It was truly a fairytale wedding day! The bride chose a dreamy tulle skirt and stunning beaded corset combination by Watters, while the groom and his men wore classic blue suits. Bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in various shades of blush, champagne, and and gold.

Lavish details

Lush greenery adorned the columns at the ceremony site, framing the couple as they said their vows. Upon entering the grand ballroom, you were immediately enamored by the towering floral centerpieces, and the elegant table settings. Lit candles on every table made for a romantic mood once the sun set, and the air was filled with the sweet smell of roses. From the first exciting moments of the day, to the bride & groom running through a sparkler exit comprised of family and friends, this wedding was one filled with many personal touches and lavish details.

From one bride to another

From the bride: I would tell future brides to do what you want and don't listen to everyone!! When I told people I was wearing Tom's shoes, they gave me a funny look and said "really???"  No one could tell what shoes I was wearing, I didn't spend a fortune on my shoes, and I was comfortable the whole night.  People also told me not to spend a lot of money on flowers as most guests wouldn't even notice them and it would be a big waste of money.  I ended up spending a lot on our flowers and I am glad I did because I remembered them (and we did get a lot of compliments on them!) and thought they were beautiful.
