I loved meeting Bill and Jessica when they came up all the way from Orlando, Florida for their engagement session back in the fall! It was so nice to see them again, Chateau Morrisette was looking much more lush in June than it was back in November, plus there no gloves necessary or attack possums this time around.
Their wedding day was filled with sweet, sentimental details. Jessica carried a photo from her parent’s wedding day pinned to the handle of her bridal bouquet. A memorial chair was reserved at the ceremony to honor those who could not make it that day. At the reception framed photos from family members’ weddings sat atop a wine barrel.
Bill and Jessica’s wedding decor was so beautiful – in addition to the centerpieces (which were mostly handmade by the bride along with her friends and family), I also fell in love with the paper lanterns at the ceremony site, and the floral archway arrangement above the fireplace at the reception site was to die for – so gorgeous in fact that I saw it was left up for a performance of a Midsummer Nights Dream that was held there the following day!
