Ellen and Lamar were married in the gardens of Glendalough Manor. The couple met through mutual friends in college and dated for 8 years before finally tying the knot!
The blushing bride and her bridesmaids had a great time in Molly’s Place, Glendalough Manor’s bridal room, getting ready for the ceremony. Ellen wore a stunning strapless gown by Nicole Miller with crystal detailing at the bodice, waist and skirt of the gown. She accented the gown with teardrop crystal earrings to match the dress. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the blush colored bridesmaid dresses from BCBGeneration. I love the uniqueness and the femininity of the lace top and ruffled skirt!! Ellen and her bridesmaids carried a simple bouquet of all white hydrangeas adding the perfect touch to their dresses.
Also check out the brides ruffled shoes to match her bridesmaids…perfection!
The guys chose traditional tuxes with the groom wearing a black bow tie and the groomsmen wearing silver bow ties.
The couple decided to decorate the ceremony arbor and pergola with white round hanging lanterns. Such a simple yet beautiful way to decorate the outside ceremony location. They gave programs made in to a fan to all of the guests for the outside ceremony to help keep them cool. Love this idea for an outside garden wedding! Ellen says the ceremony was her favorite part of the wedding day. “Just walking down that beautiful aisle with my family all around me and my future husband watching me as I walked towards him was an unforgettable moment.”
One hundred and fifty of the couples close friends and family were also invited to the reception in the Wicklow Ballroom. The bride chose classic ivory linens and napkins and used silver tall vases with a bouquet of blush pink spider mums.
The bride chose her favorite cake from Publix as her wedding cake and placed them on risers at different heights.
The couple says their advice to future brides is to “Enjoy every moment because it flies by so fast!”
Congratulations to the happily married couple from everyone at Glendalough Manor. Thank you for letting us be apart of your special day!
