Garrison Wedding: Larissa and Mike

10.23.11 What a gorgeous day for a wedding at the Garrison!  Larissa and Mike had an evening of classic elegance so brimming over with fun that it was truly amazing.Photo by Steph

Larissa was simply stunning in her strapless gown with a bow at the back.  She wore her blonde hair in waves over one shoulder, a classic, alluring beauty a la Veronica Lake.

The Details

The bridesmaids wore navy blue gowns and carried bouquets of pink roses.  The groomsmen wore classic black tuxes with bow ties and suspenders.  The tables were decorated with pink and white roses and hydrangeas, the same flowers that graced the top of the wedding cake.

The Matron of Honor talked about her long history with Larissa, and how their parents dressed them like they were twins when they were girls.  The Best Man revealed his only fear for his brother on his wedding day, remembering how he had presented an inappropriate finger once many years ago.

The Music 

Larissa absolutely loves music, and had given us a very extensive list of song requests.  Well, not only does she have great taste, she knew her group!  They danced to everything from swing favorites to Twisted Sister and Jay-Z.

Some of my favorite moments were watching Larissa and Mike dance to “Something in the Way She Moves,” the song Mike dedicated to his new wife; seeing Larissa lose herself in a Lady Gaga medley; the circle of kicking legs to “New York, New York.”

It was truly a pleasure.  Thank you so much for having us!
