“However big, however small, let me be part of it all!”
We loved having Larry and Melanie here at the Castle for their wedding ceremony. There was so much extra love coming from this happy couple, they could’ve filled up all of our rooms!
Melanie and her lovely leading ladies enjoyed relaxing in the bridal suite while helping Melanie into her beautiful wedding gown.
Heather Elise Photography took Melanie all over the Castle to find the best locations to show off her dress!
Larry and his groomsmen got ready in our Groom’s Room just down the hall from the ladies. There, Larry read the love note from Melanie and opened her gift. Melanie received a special letter and gift from him as well.
The happy couple offered customized masks for their guests to wear so they could proudly display their official title of “witness to happiness.”
Larry could barely contain his excitement the whole day, which can make him tricky to pin a boutonniere onto!
Once the guys got all spruced up, they enjoyed a mini photoshoot just before the ceremony started.
Guests were seated beneath our Grand Oaks for the ceremony, allowing them to watch as each member of the bridal party descended the stairs from the Castle.
The weather was perfect, and everyone loved being in the shade while Larry and Melanie exchanged vows.
One of our favorite officiants, Bethel Nathan from Ceremonies By Bethel, always knows how to effortlessly lead a ceremony through the necessary motions while still making it fun for the guests.
During their ceremony, the love birds locked away a special bottle of wine and some love notes in an engraved box to open on their first wedding anniversary.
Finally, it was time for the Big Kiss to seal the deal! Everyone watching cheered to celebrate the newlyweds.
Just look at those smiles! This is the part that always melts our hearts, and we’re so thankful to be a part of this love story.
We’re so excited for these two and their beautiful love story to continue. We wish them all the best in their bright future together!
