We had a total blast working with this adorable couple and were so excited to celebrate with them last summer! Sarah and Patrick are both music lovers (Sarah is a music teacher and Patrick is a composer, arranger, and conductor) so, of course, the ceremony began with an awesome jazz band setting the tone for a unique and fun day. Sarah was a beauty in her ballgown dress, and the Ruby was the perfect backdrop for their sweet wedding. Sarah and Patrick were married under the copper arbor her father made for them. The morning ceremony ended with an intimate prayer--everyone reached out to hold hands and shoulders, connecting family and friends in a heartfelt blessing for the new couple.

While the room was being flipped from the ceremony to the reception, the guests relaxed with mimosas and coffee out on the patio. Brunch was served--a delicious buffet of hot chicken and waffles, frittatas, and a tower of an assortment of donuts from Five Daughters and Dunkin' Donuts--a fun twist on the traditional wedding cake. The couple had gathered a TON of board games from home for guests to play throughout the reception, while we snapped a few last pictures outside in Dragon Park.  It was nearly 95 degrees that day (whew!!)--totally opposite from their engagement session, which was on one of the coldest days in January. (See those photos here!) The reception came to an end as the couple made their exit, surrounded by bubbles and cheers. 

We are so grateful to Sarah and Patrick for allowing us to be a part of their day--and to Stephanie and Hannah-Kate at Ruby for planning/coordinating such a special and unique wedding celebration!
