No detail was left unturned for Samantha and Keith’s whimsical garden themed wedding at the Elms Mansion last month. Samantha was very excited to see all of the details she had been working so hard on for the months leading up to the wedding come to fruition. Especially her sweets table! What a grand sweets table it was too!! It was 6-7 feet long, and full of goodies.
I look at these photos, and I just adore the thought that went into the day. Samantha was very organized from our first meeting. Her attention to detail was impeccable, and luckily it all came together on the wedding day without any major glitches. She had a Mad Men inspired cocktail bar outside. The bartenders wore pink ties, and served specialty cocktails. There was a lounge outside that was adorable. And the guests entertained themselves with a photo booth hosted by Studio Vieux Carre throughout the night.
The outdoor setup for dinner was absolutely fabulous! It was a magical outdoor dining experience. The lights that were strung overhead added so much ambiance to the outdoor space. It made everything cozy – not to mention they looked fabulous in the photos. The guests were also treated to a musical performance by the groom and his friends. They did really well!! They even gave the guests an encore after their first song.
The day closed with a second line throughout the house, and a sparkler departure. Minutes after the bride and groom pulled away, two streetcars arrived to take the guests back downtown. I love the closing shots with the street cars.
Samantha and Keith really seemed to enjoy the day — though I’m sure they’ll you it went way too fast if you ask! Thanks for letting us document your day. I hope you love the photos as much as I do! Enjoy!
