Fall wedding at Rosewood Sand Hill

It was a perfect day for an outside wedding ceremony at Rosewood Sand Hill this weekend! I had the joy of working with Brenna and Jared to ensure that all the well-planned details they had been working on for months, came together perfectly for their wedding day.

The Chuppah, set up and decorated by Amy Burke Design, was a beautiful focal point for the bride, groom and their families to stand before their friends, and pledge their lives to one another.

Brenna and Jared's rich orange, peach, apricot wedding colors, seen here in the bridesmaid bouquets, matched perfectly the decor at Rosewood Sand Hill, as did the invitations and escort cards, which were hand-made by Brenna. As an artist, when she and Jared booked the hotel for their wedding venue, Brenna knew exactly how she would incorporate the style and aesthetic of Rosewood into her wedding design.

The escort cards were crafted with the same paper detail detail as that used in the invitations; each guest's meal choice was designated by where on the card the color detail was positioned. It was a very creative way to help the servers know what meal to serve each guest; the result was both beautiful in design, and clear in communication. Well done, Brenna and Jared!

The chargers and menus at each place setting were another connection to the wedding design, which mirrored the overall decor at Rosewood Sand Hill. The small boxes of 4 truffles, selected by Brenna and Jared, were a thank you gift for each guest...a sweet reminder of their wedding day!

Following the ceremony after a few moments alone, Brenna and Jared head out to the garden areas at Rosewood Sand Hill for photos with Jessica Lifland, before joining their guests for cocktails.

Soon the indoor part of the celebration began, and that was also amazing! Brenna and Jared were introduced into dinner by her father, welcomed with toasts, and along with their guests enjoyed a delicious 4 course meal,

before opening the dance floor with their first dance, which was followed by the Parents' dances, and...

...the Hora!

Once The Fundamentals got everyone up for the Hora, the dance floor never emptied until the party ended at Midnight!

No one wanted to say goodbye after the wonderful celebration of Brenna and Jared's wedding day, so they said "....see you tomorrow!", because Brenna's family hosted a Brunch on the Rosewood Sand Hill portico for all the guests who could join them. I understand the patio was full!
