The couple exchanged their wedding vows under a giant oak tree, flanked by two rustic wine barrels topped with pink and white floral arrangements.

The Outdoor Wedding Reception

The estate’s patio was set with round tables and crisp white linens and pink napkins brought in the color story of the pink and white floral centerpieces. Our large garden umbrellas shaded guests and added a romantic feel to the reception.

The couple’s sweetheart table was set under the trellis-covered bandstand, raised slightly above their wedding guests, overlooking the dancefloor.

After their first dance, Melissa and David’s wedding guests were treated to a rustic and relaxed buffet dinner reception as the sun began to set.

The reception included: Tri-Tip Steaks, Grilled Chicken, Mac N Cheese, Porky Beans, Green Salad, and Corn Bread.

The couple brought in fun elements for their family and friends by including a custom-designed corn hole set for outside on the patio. Inside guests enjoyed a photo booth with a lot of unique props.
