Robyn and Chris said “I Do” with a lovely intimate wedding, that was both neutral & simple- a true reflection of their style. The day began with Robyn and her bride tribe getting their Hair and Makeup done in the Luxmore’s beautiful bridal suite. Chris and his groomsmen were cool as cucumbers and strolled into the venue later on and finished getting ready by donning a classic tuxedo from Men’s Warehouse.
With Hair and Makeup complete, Robyn’s mom and sisters helped her into her Maggie Sottero gown and finished her bridal look with gorgeous accessories; A pearl necklace, bracelet & earring set, an amazing crystal hair piece and her something blue: a pair of Badgley Mischka pumps.
Robyn’s dad got to see his daughter in all her bridal glory with an adorable First Look (these moments always make us break out the tissues). Robyn and Chris shared their First Look on the Estate’s grand staircase which definitely reminds us of a classic, movie moment!
Rain, Rain Go Away!
Mother Nature had other plans for this couple’s ceremony, which was originally supposed to take place in the Jessup Garden. Thinking quick on our feet, we reset the ceremony inside the Estate room. Robyn and Chris got married in front of the Estate Room’s cozy hearth, under a floral draped arch- which was later repurposed in the reception to highlight the stunning cake! Lanterns lit the way along either side of the aisle and Robyn carried a stunning bouquet of Calla Lilies and greenery.
Time To Party!
This was an efficient group! With most of the couples’ and family portraits having been completed earlier in the day, Robyn and Chris were able to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests. Speaking of photos, in the Estate’s Library- photos of the couple’s parents and grandparents decorated some of the bookshelves!
As guests were escorted to the reception, they were encouraged to write Robyn and Chris some well wishes in their guestbook, which was a lovely, framed photo. Robyn and Chris wanted to keep things minimal, so we dressed the guest tables with ivory linens and napkins while also accenting them with gold charger plates and mahogany chiavari chairs. Floating Calla Lily centerpieces and guest favors completed the elegant look!
Let Them Eat Cake!
The cake was both yummy and gorgeous! It had four ivory tiers and was set atop an elegant, crystal cake stand. Greenery and minimal floral pieces were expertly placed at the base of the cake as well as on some of the top tiers.
Goodbye and Goodnight!
Robyn and Chris had their first dance as husband and wife to the tune of: “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli. The dancing didn’t end there though! Guests boogied throughout the night, laughing and having a great time. The couple shared one last dance together before the night was over; They swayed to the musical notes of Michael Buble’s “Save The Last Dance For Me.” Robyn and Chris’s family and friends sent them off into their limo with tons of well wishes & sweet-nothings! It was truly a wonderful evening for this amazing couple. Congratulations Robyn & Chris, we hope you had an unforgettable day! We wish lots of LOVE and many happy moments together!!
