#RealWeddingWednesday - Mike and Hayley

It's time for another #realweddingwednesday! And this day and this couple were so sweet, so relaxed, so EASY, the whole day was a dream!



Hayley and Mike were like so many couples who faced rescheduling their wedding and seeing their guest count fall. But, they were no less joyful to celebrate their marriage with their much of their close family and their friends at Marblegate Farm. Jo Photo captured the day so beautifully! I love sharing these pre-ceremony photos of Hayley enjoying some time with her Mom, sisters, and friends. The bridal suite at Marblegate is in their beautiful farmhouse and it is the perfect setting to relax, get pampered, and enjoy all the special moments of this big day. And don't worry! We didn't forget about the groom. Mike, his groomsmen, and his family enjoyed time in the boat house at Marblegate prior to the wedding also! This photo of Mike's parents playing foosball is one of my favorites from the day.


Hayley's elegant palette of ivory, gold, champagne was just beautiful! The flowers by Wither and Bloom were just stunning. She included some of my all time favorite flowers like ranaculus and panda anemonies in the beautiful hand-tied bouquets.



The dapper groom and his groomsmen wore suits in navy with simply white boutineers. This was a great group of guys! They kept Mike laughing all day!


At 5:00 PM sharp, the intimate ceremony began in the Great Hall with many of our guests having traveled from all around the US to be present for Hayley and Mike's big day. It was so great to see this couple being so loved and supported. Chuck from Sensational Ceremonies (who performed their legal ceremony months earlier) officiated their ceremony with sweet personal memories of this couple. Like many vendors, we all have a special place in our hearts for our 2020 couples who have gone through so much to get to this day. It really is a joy to see these wedding dreams come true!



Then it was time to celebrate! Bradford Catered Events opened up their declicious pasta bar, the bartending staff at Marblegate was ready to serve everyone, and Jim of Special Notes kept the party going with good music all evening.


I told you it was a fun wedding!


It was such a pleasure to get to know Hayley and Mike and an honor to walk through their engagement season together. The love that they have for each other really shows and I feel fortunate that I was able to celebrate it with them. I wish them so, so much joy and love in their married life together! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Wood!


I'll be sharing more real wedding photos in the next few weeks. Wedding season is in full swing!


Enjoy a safe and fun Labor Day Weekend!

Happy Planning,
