Megan and Cliff's Wonderful Wedding at The Garden on Millbrook!

The old saying is that "March goes out like a lion" and that truly fit for Megan and Cliff's wedding on March 28, 2014! It was in the mid to high 40s with a good breeze making it seem colder than it really was. Nevertheless, we decided at the rehearsal the day before to go ahead and have the ceremony outside anyway and we did! It was a beautiful bright sunny day and looking at the photos, you might think it was a warm day in May.
Megan and Cliff's wedding was held at The Garden on Millbrook, a lovely venue with an outdoor garden space and an elegant ballroom with nice facilities for the bridal party to hang out before the ceremony.
 Their DJ was Jesse Noa @ DJ Supreme
The beautiful floral arrangements were provided by Embellished Blooms
When we all assembled to get ready for the wedding, half the seating was in the sunshine and it felt pretty good. However, as we got closer to the 4:30 start time, both sides of the seating were in shadow. The plan was to put down a runner but it was impossible to make it lay flat with the wind blowing. So we had to scrap the idea.
 Back inside this is the elegant foyer area with the grand piano. 
The pretty wedding cake was baked by Jessica Alexander of Pretty in the Details. Three different delicious flavors.
Monica Noa with Nouveau Events was our wedding director. She had just returned from fetching the bride and parents from the hotel.
 Behind the bride is Monica's assistant, Callie. 
 Patti, Mother of the Bride is so happy! She couldn't stop smiling! 
Marc Dabagian is with The Garden on Millbrook and has been at this venue for many years including the years it was owned and operated by Sisters' Catering. Marc and I have done a lot of weddings together! Kelly Martin was their photographer and she and I have done many weddings together too!
After the grandparents were escorted in, Troy, father of the groom, escorts Teresa, mother of the groom, down the aisle.
 Mother of the Bride, Patti, was escorted in by her brother, Bob, uncle of the bride. 
Cliff, his guys and I entered from the side door and took our places. (Right before we entered, I decided I had to wear my wrap for warmth and was so glad I brought it with me!) 
After the pretty bridesmaids processed in, it was time for Tim, Father of the Bride, to escort our beautiful bride, Megan, down the aisle.
 You can see how the wind was blowing Megan's veil and hair toward Cliff! 
 The pretty bridesmaids got to enjoy standing in the sun! 
 A warm welcome to everyone then a prayer......
 Honoring of their parents....
 Telling their love story! 
 Cliff reading his vows from book to Megan. He wrote them himself and they were so sweet. 
 Megan read her vows (equally sweet) to Cliff then they exchanged rings.
 Time to make this official with the pronouncement of marriage! 
 Sweet kiss after Cliff broke the glass and we applauded and shouted Mazel Tov! 
 Such a happy couple to be stepping into their new lives as husband and wife! 
Megan and Cliff, great wedding! Your careful planning made it a very special day. Congratulations and best wishes for a wonderful marriage and satisfying life together!
