Elena and Matt :: Hawthorne House, Misourri wedding

Gold sequins, strawberry reds, cream, white and LOTS and LOTS of love from family and friends is EXACTLY what this wedding was all about! Doesn’t that color palette just scream HAPPY to you?! :) That is EXACTLy what Elena and Matt are…full of joy brimming with joy! :) Elena, an adorable, bubbly brunette was dressed in a gorgeous custom made dress, sequin shoes and a bright bouquet filled with lots of color while Matt adorned his custom suit and personalized collar stays for the day! :)

The ceremony was held at Elena’s home church which was perfectly filled with history and charm as they exchanged vows! :) The guests “waived” them out with ribbons and extra-loud cheers as they made their way to the Hawthorne House where the celebration was awaiting! Mom’s homemade buttermilk biscuits and locally made jam greeted for the guests as they arrived; it was sort of a “welcome to the family” moment as guests enjoyed them while chatting! :)

The best part, however, was the music at the end of the night! Not only did Elena and Matt hire a KILLER band….BUT, Elena’s uncles serenaded everyone for a few songs in honor of her late grandfathers’ musical talents! It was phenomenal…full of passion and story and so much love for the bride and groom! :) The party was fun, the desserts were extra yummy and the night was TOTALLY one to remember! :) A day filled with glam and charm and so much personality, YAY!!!!! :)

Congrats you two! :) What an incredible weekend!!! :)
And a HUGE shout out to their INCREDIBLE coordinator: Hannah! :) THANK YOU!
