Their reception was straight out of a magazine! I asked her what vibe she was going for, she said: “Simple elegance. My colors are ivory, gold, and a hint of light sage green. Pastel-ish flowers, succulents & greenery.” I think he NAILED it! Kudos to Courtney and her planners from Wanderlust Weddings & Events

My once piece of advice for Brides and Grooms…..make some time to sneak outside during your recpetion (when nothing important is going on) for a few night shots. It’s ALWAYS worth it! It’s a nice way to end a wedding album as well!  We just happened to be blessed with a pretty sunset and we were able to catch it before it was too late.
