The day was overcast and quite muggy but typical for an August wedding. Casey and Matt choose the beautiful historic Highgrove Estates for their venue. They are not much for fanfare and fussy details and so Highgrove appealed to them because they offer a nice all inclusive package to make wedding planning easier.
Casey made this lovely wreath for the front door.
Receptions are held in the garden ballroom off the terrace. The sweetheart table is quite reflective of Casey and Matt who are both book nerds! How clever that they collected books for the centerpieces of each table.
Sweet Memories baked this simple elegant wedding cake.
Our florist was Flowers on Broad.

Now Matt enters! He was followed by the groomsmen, groomswomen and bridesmaids.
Casey and her father make their walk down the aisle to join us.
A tribute to the parents to lift the mood and stir in a little laughter!
The guests were on the edge of their seats enjoying every moment and the wedding party too!
Wrapping up the story now.
Now to reveal what they had each told me in confidence about what they love about each other.
Taking a moment to mop the sweat dripping off Matt's face!
It was a long list!
Now to the more serious business--their vows to each other.
Then the ring exchange.
Now they become husband and wife!
Sealed with a kiss!
And out they go!
Yay! We did it!
Matt's sister, Katie, is so happy for him!
