Lorraine and Brett’s celebration.
The skies were clear as we arrived to set up under the gorgeous pavilion, greeted by the sound of the string and guitar duo playing for the ceremony.
Lorraine was a storybook bride with a dazzling smile, lovely in her strapless mermaid gown and carrying white calla lilies. She danced with her new husband to “Hold You In My Arms” by Ray Lamontagne.
In her toast, the Matron of Honor, Lorraine’s sister, told how she had always looked up to her big sis…and waited until she moved out to steal her clothes! Brett’s father, also his Best Man, revealed the development of his son’s character, including a few (mis)adventures on an ATV. Lorraine’s friend told us about the Singles Council and how Lorraine’s membership was now permanently revoked.
THE DETAILS: Floral arrangements of white hydrangeas and pink roses in river stones and gray linens on the tables. The Matron of Honor wore an elegant black gown and carried a bouquet of pink roses. A sign announcing “Lorraine and Brett” carved into a block of wood hung at the pavilion entrance.
Sometimes you just know it’s going to be a great night. I knew when I saw Lorraine and Brett sneak a moment to themselves on the dance floor to, “What You Want” by the John Butler Trio, and Brett bent to kiss her hand.
The adorable flower girl rocked the dance floor all night, whether it was Usher, The Beatles or Celia Cruz, working her patented Robot moves.
This was one of the most supportive groups I’ve ever had the pleasure of celebrating with. Lorraine and Brett were beautiful, romantic and so mindful of their guests’ comfort. It was really our pleasure to be a part of it. Thanks for having us, guys!
