Real Wedding: Laura & Ben
Say hello to Laura & Ben....their wedding story is SO beautiful and truly "picture perfect".  They are such a beautiful couple and their wedding story was captured by The Bride's Cafe Crème de la Crème Wedding Vendor,   Mary Gardella,  of Love Life Images.  Mary's work is always STUNNING....she totally tells the couple's story and the images from Laura & Ben's wedding are simply gorgeous...Mary is AMAZING and I'm always happy to have her stop by the cafe....let's check out Laura & Ben's special day....Enjoy!!


Here's a little info from Mary......"WOW is the first word that comes to mind when I think about this wedding. First of all, the weather report for the day had been thunderstorms all day. Not a great forecast for an outdoor ceremony and reception at a stunning property. But, we all crossed our fingers. Especially coordinator Sara Muchnick, of Engaging Affairs, with her wellies on and a firm belief that the clouds would part and all would be well. She was right. Within an hour the sky was bright blue and a cool breeze remained. Phewww. Secondly, Laura & Ben wanted a feel-good, home-spun, natural-style celebration. And Sara left no stone unturned bringing this to life for them.

The ceremony was held in a
garden grove and the sky was their chuppah. For the reception, I loved the concept of long tables topped with simple china and mason jars of fresh flowers. The meal was served in a family-style fashion which was a fabulous way to create a comfortable atmosphere for everyone. Guests were able to view a clothesline of family photos and later they watched Ben & Laura attempt to break a peacock pinata (there were several peacocks living on the property). At the end of the night, all were welcome to gather around a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows. The speeches. Instead of being toasted, Laura & Ben chose to give little speeches about one another and their families. There was not a dry eye in the place. Even I had to hold myself together. So touching. The band. Okay,Gonzo's Nose (yes, that is the name of the band) was AWESOME!  They absolutely had everyone on the floor dancing crazy and were playing the best songs. So fun." 

All the beautiful florals designed by The Enchanted Florist and the catering by Beth Hughes.
