A wedding in a Castle….I mean this is true fairy tale status. You drive into the Cherokee Ranch and Castle and you can’t help but be awestruck. Gorgeous architecture, arches, gargoyles, vines and beautiful doors fill this amazing place. It was simply beautiful. Then you bring in Melissa and Scott, a couple that invites you into their day and makes you feel as if you’ve been friends forever. I watched as these two laughed and hugged their family through out the day. You couldn’t help but smile back with them. I loved Scott’s expression when Melissa walked down the aisle towards him. He looked like he lost the very air to breathe. And Melissa…ahhh, her expression, STUNNING. She was a woman in love and so happy. Gosh I love my job. That I get to have a front row to such beautiful and emotional moments….I don’t take it lightly.
The reception under a canopy of lights was amazing. The floral details, candlelit tables, and above…they had twinkling lights for a ceiling! I mean…this is an gorgeous place to get married at! And the guests, they surrounded Melissa and Scott and celebrated all through out the night. Whether it was catching up with old friends or dancing into the night…you could tell it was going to be a wedding to be remembered. At the end of the night the guests all lined up out the door to send off Melissa and Scott in the Vintage Rolls Royce. Seriously a gorgeous car.
So many talented and amazing vendors helped shape and create this beautiful day for Melissa and Scott. At the end of this post will be a link to their websites or facebook pages. I’ve also shared a few more on my facebook page if you would like to take a look, here is a link:
