Cassandra & Andre’s Timeless Summer Garden Wedding
Real Wedding Spotlight: A timeless summer garden wedding full of once-in-a-lifetime moments.
There’s something special about summer weddings. The days are long, the nights are warm, and the whole world seems steeped in the nostalgia of days gone by. August 19th, 2022 was no different – a beautiful backdrop for a timeless garden wedding. The day, as with many summer weddings, started off cloudy, with a chance of rain. But the clouds softened the sunlight to provide the perfecting lighting for pictures, as evidenced by a shot of the bride appearing almost angelic as she got ready in The Gardens Suite. Loved ones gathered from near and far as the wedding party got ready to surround Andre and Cassandra with love.
Meanwhile, the wedding reception tent was busy being transformed into the reception space that dreams are made of. Soft pink linens paired perfectly with pastel greenery to create a charming, intimate space under the twinkle of café lights. Following fun photoshoots with the couple and their party, it was time for the ceremony to commence. The Lath House stood ready and waiting, the alter adorned with pink and white flowers to match. As the party filed down the aisle through soft white curtains, there was only one person left to arrive – the bride. Cassandra looked dazzling in her dress and stunning lace veil as she made her way down the aisle to Andre.
Following a heartfelt ceremony, it was time to celebrate! As guests settled under the wedding reception tent, the wedding party made fabulous grand entrances into the reception, setting the mood for the rest of the night. As eating, drinking, and dancing ensued, the couple sunk away for a quick golden hour photoshoot before returning to take to the dance floor. We invite you to scroll down and check out some highlights from Cassandra and Andre’s day…we know you’ll as in love with them as we are!
