He continues to swell with emotion, wiping tears from his eyes as she begins her journey down the aisle. The bride wears a chic-ly timeless white gown with a flowing train, she holds an elegant bouquet of white roses. The bridesmaids stand beside her dressed in black. The groom and his groomsmen coordinate in classic black tuxedos. They hold hands as they vow their futures to each other. “Go forth and leave each day to the fullest,” the officiant declares as he announces them as one. The reception brings exuberance and entertainment. From Teddy, the family dog affixed the top of the wedding cake to groom shoving cake in the bride’s face as she delicately feeds him, the fun doesn’t stop. The first dances are endearing. Chris twirls Liz throughout the dance and ends it with a sweet embrace. The father/daughter and mother/son dances are happy and sweet. As they cut the cake with their dog Teddy affixed atop, Chris attempts to shove cake in Liz’s face. The night is filled with dancing, drinking, and lots of laughter. The fun-filled night ends with a sparkler send off after the couple shares a final dance to themselves. We are excited to watch your love continue to blossom!
