For Marlea and Gregg, October 15th 2016, was no typical day. It was the day they said, “ I do.” Their special day was held at the beautiful Luxmore Estate, both the ceremony and the reception were held inside.
The ceremony was a heartwarming family affair. A cross, made by Marlea’s father especially for this occasion, stood outside the ceremony entrance. The flower girls were the Gregg’s two young daughters. They were darling in their dresses, walking down the aisle. But it was Marlea who grabbed everyone’s attention, as she should have on her wedding day. Love was clear as day on Gregg’s face when he saw his bride walking down the aisle.
Cocktail hour was held in the Estate’s Library, a rustic room with vintage furniture. The room was a wonderful complement to the beauty of the wedding. Pictures of Marlea, Gregg, and their family were lovingly placed around the Library, giving it the feel of a beautiful family home.
The reception hall was truly a site to behold, awash in blush, gold, and white. All items in the room complemented each other perfectly, including beautiful hand-made centerpieces. Marlea and Gregg put a creative little spin on the traditional photo booth. Polaroid cameras allowed the guests to take pictures as they saw fit. Painted closet doors to use as the backdrops and costumes were provided to make the pictures more entertaining. Most of those pictures went home with Marlea and Gregg, giving them heartfelt mementos of the day and of the love which filled the air as the couple took their leave.
