Adrianne and Michael had just shared their first kiss as husband and wife, and they then started their recessional back down the aisle. They smiled at each other, and they made eye contact with guests as excitement beamed from their faces. The newlyweds stopped for a kiss at the end of the aisle, and they then quickly rounded the corner for a hug. They both excitedly exchanged, “We did it!” and “We are married!”. After this moment, the newlyweds were hard to keep up with. They were practically running down the path to meet at Adrianne’s favorite tree on the Nella Terra Cellars’ property. Celebratory drinks and appetizers struggled to keep up with them. Adrianne kept exclaiming, “I am so happy we are married! This feels so good!”. Her excitement was contagious! Adrianne and Michael were the perfect example of what getting married should feel like.
Adrianne and Michael had a dream wedding! They were surrounded by their wonderful family and friends that love and support them dearly. When the owner of Nella Terra Cellars tapped the DJ on the shoulder, he shared that a grass fire had broken out on the hillside. The fire could be viewed out of the reception tent windows. The owner gave a warning that evacuations may be needed shortly. At one point, everyone was instructed that we could not leave; because fire trucks were coming up the road, and they had to keep the roads clear. This could have put a damper on the wedding day, but everyone put their trust in the knowledgable firemen, and they rallied to keep the wedding reception alive with lots of love, joy, and laughter.
Adrianne and Michael, I truly had a fabulous time celebrating your love with your amazing family and friends. You two are deeply loved, not only by each other, but also by each guest at your wedding. I loved that Adrianne was ecstatic after the ceremony. This is exactly how you should feel! I love that you two escaped from the wedding world for a moment alone and to celebrate you. You handled the fire scare with grace. You two make an amazing couple! (And you have quite the wedding day story to share!). I am so excited for the two of you to see some of my many favorites from your wedding day!
