Jill & Dominic’s Super Fun Summer Garden Wedding at The Gardens

Real Wedding Spotlight: The lighthearted ceremony, competitive lawn games and packed dance floor made for a super fun wedding day for Jill & Dominic.

There is something about a warm sunny summer day that makes you smile, especially when that day is your wedding day. For Jill & Dominic, the day was both a celebration of their love for one another and a celebration of the love and support of their family and friends.

The tent’s white café lights with leafy branches all connected to a center statement piece of five golden droplet individual string lights hanging in the center of the tent. Using a soft rose color palette accented by golden undertones, tables were set with taper and votive candles amongst white, pink, and yellow wildflowers. The wedding party continued the look as bridesmaids’ donned subtle blush pink gowns with down sweep hair that was complimented by groomsmen in navy suits with crisp white dress shirts.

Once the ceremony concluded the champagne was popped, and the fun began as guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers as they engaged in conversation and began a little friendly competition in the form of lawn games. After a rousing grand march, emotional speeches and delicious meal, guests danced the night away to a live band.

At the entrance of the tent and on the way to the fireplace, guests were able to easily access their table assignments.

Jill and Dominic had their guests (okay…and Garden’s of Castle Rock staff) drooling over their enchanting tent décor!

Recipe for a lovely reception space: The sweet twinkle of candles, the romance of flowers, and the friendliness of the outdoors just a breath away.

The bridal party slowly makes their way to the Lath House. They’re ready to support Jill and Dominic now and forever.

Whimsical is one of our favorite adjectives of the Lath House at The Gardens of Castle Rock.

Don’t you just want to cheer looking at this picture?? Cheers to the new Mr. & Mrs.!!!

On a gorgeous sunny day, the Garden Pavilion offers generous shade for the bar staff and guests looking for a sip.

We like to capture some photos of our own of each of our wonderful couples – this picture is one of our all time favorites from the season. You can just SEE the FUN!

It’s time for food, speeches, and to dance the night away.

Guests and groomsmen enjoy some lawn games – just another fun reason to have an outdoor wedding!

Guests danced and danced and then danced some more under the twinkle lights.

As a cool dusk air settled on The Gardens of Castle Rock, the warm light of the tent made for an inviting scene.
