Real Wedding Story: Marah & Joel

Marah and Joel’s wedding held a special place in our wedding planning hearts! Marah is Amber’s little sister and Amber was her Matron of Honor. The couples’ tastes and style could be seen in every detail of their wedding. You could feel their love and compassion for each other along with their friends and family throughout the day.

The gardens were in full bloom at Waldenwoods Resort which served as the perfect venue for this outdoorsy couple. With lush greens, gold terrariums, floral and teal accents, the decor was absolutely stunning in this country chic venue. The bride oversaw every decor detail and hand lettered every sign and seating assignments. (Fun fact: She can do yours too!)

For the outdoor ceremony, we hung greenery from the pergola on the edge of the lake. This location served as the spot for the couples’ first look and where they said the sacred two words of ‘I do.’ Our fun loving couple enjoys a good game night with their friends and wanted to bring that joy to their wedding. They brought along with them a giant size connect-four, Jenga, and Disc Golf to entertain guests during their outdoor cocktail hour.

Once we were ready to move the party indoors for dinner, the reception tables featured alternating center pieces comprised of candles, floral compote arrangements, and terrariums inviting guests to settle in for an evening of delicious food, fantastic ambiance, and a loving atmosphere to celebrate Marah and Joel.

Congratulations you two; we love you big time!
