WOW! What a wedding! Today’s Real Wedding, Romance in the Garden, was beautiful beyond words! The nature, this couples’ families and faithful love, and the sheer joy the entire bridal party shared with each other and all of the guests, created the perfect setting for the perfect couple – the new Mr. and Mrs. Thornton!

I had the privilege of working with Mandy and Craig at two weddings; one being their own. The other was one of Mandy’s best friends, back in October of 2009. And what an honor it was to work with such an amazing couple. Not to mention, their friends really do know how to party! At both weddings, we the event coordinators, were dancing right along with the guests by the end of the night! How great is that?   😀

OK, so back to the newlyweds. When I first spoke with Mandy about her vision for the couple’s nuptials, she was like a lot of brides I’ve worked with in the past – excited, a bit stressed, and had some questions. But what I never forgot about her was how she much she stressed (ever-so-naturally and affectionately) her lve for Craig during our initial phone meeting. And when I finally met Craig the afternoon before their nuptials, I could really sense his adoration for his future wife as well. They have got to be one of the most genuinely sweet ane loving couples I’ve ever met!

And the love didn’t stop there. Their entire day was bursting with affection from the moment they read each other’s cards before the ceremony to their breathtaking vows and reception speeches. Not to mention, the scenery at the Hill just complimented the already-perfect pair!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of Romance in the Garden to see more photos and learn more about this lovely couple and their dream day!
