What a BLAST! JT and Ashley gave themselves a ton of time to plan their Big Day. We had the pleasure of meeting this awesome couple even before the official planning began. JT the Groom just so happened to be the Best Man in another SBEP Wedding, and his lovely Bride Ashley was the Baker, with her Lemon Curd & Lavender delectable tiered creation.
JT and Ashley selected a fantastic team to bring their day to life. These “Friendors” did not disappoint. The Photography and DJ just so happened to be a married couple, long time friends. Making it all official, Aunt of the Bride. The blooms, you ask? Foraged locally by dear pal Haley. Getting to know these 2 was an easy task! Their fun loving personalities mixed with their realistic approach to planning was immediately a perfect match. They planned for months, and thought they had ALL the details for their big day in order. From the flowers to the guest list. Little did they know their Bridal Party members had other ideas.
WHAT A SURPRISE! The weather was perfect, location a dream, but these two tied the knot with some unexpected special guests. Benny and Napoleon made a surprise appearance during cocktail hour… The Llamas. Ashley took a fancy to Llamas long ago. With this in mind, their dear friends started scheming behind the scenes with an awesome gift to spoil this couple!
The Venue, a hidden gem with great ambiance and a view. Reber’s Riverside was a great place for Ashley and JT to exchange vows with their families and friends in a rustic setting with just the right amount of polished accents. The entire venue was built by Mr. Reber’s. Mrs. Reber and their family maintain the property. Overnight camping is allowed here too!
The maids chose attire in a neutral palette to compliment the natural beauty of the venue. The bride in a hand beaded, lace overlay gown from Bridal Exclusives. Mya’s Salon and NARS doted and primped to have our Bride feeling like a queen. Catering & Dessert was provided by a fully Gluten Free Company. Peace of mind for the bride and several guests who wanted to enjoy great food without gluten getting in the way. Bella Luna Gluten Free Patisserie utilized local fruit and rich dark chocolate for this delectable dessert.
The Wedding, a Great Success, ended on a high note! This newly Mr. and Mrs. BOTH CHAMPS!
