This week’s blog post features the Swints! Patrick and Lauren’s fall wedding was back in October on a unusually cold day! However, their spirits were high and their guests were warm and toasty thanks to our new heating system that was installed just in time for their special day 🙂
Lauren and patrick met how most couples meet in the 21st century – online! Patrick proposed to Lauren around the christmas holidays by hiding her beautiful engagement ring at the bottom of her christmas stocking – talk about a great Christmas gift!
Lauren’s vision for her wedding day was a beautiful celebration full of fun, good food, and good music. With the help of some amazing vendors, we made sure her vision came to life and everyone had a lovely time!
The theme for Lauren and Patrick’s wedding was simplistic elegance with a few rustic touches. For their ceremony, they chose the gazebo site which had amazing view of the valley and all the changing foliage.
The colors for this wedding were Navy blue and blush pink, which we included in the reception with table runners and pillar candles. The bride’s bouquet and reception florals also had beautiful pops of color in them – to match the bride’s bubbly personality! Lauren, Patrick and their entire families were so overjoyed that day and it was clear how much love was felt that day during their wonderful celebration.
During the reception, everyone danced the night away while enjoying a trail mix bar (how awesome), and Lauren hired a caricature artist to draw portraits of their guests to take home as their favors! It was definitely a really personal touch and the guests really enjoyed it!
It was such an honor to be a part of the planning process for this amazing couple – their wedding was such a blast and one we will always cherish. Be sure to check out their vendors below, and a special thanks to Noreen Nooner photography for allowing the use of her beautiful photos!
