Gaelle and Justin’s Timeless Wedding

Gaelle and Justin’s timeless wedding in September 2019 was elegant, classic, and oh-so-romantic. With a navy and pink color scheme, the light florals popped against the darkness of the bridesmaids’ dresses and venue decor. From the bride: “When we began planning and I was sorting through hundreds of wedding photos, I realized that I really fell for the classic and timeless weddings. I loved that everyone looked their best, and that all parts of the wedding reflected the importance of the day. I knew from the start that I wanted a formal affair that was enjoyable for adults of all ages because after all-we wanted one heck of a party to celebrate with!”

From the bride: “My favorite part of the day was definitely the dance floor. We were all able to get loose and have a good time without worrying too much about what was supposed to happen, who was looking or talking, or thinking about the day. I got to see my family members surprise me with their fantastic dancing skills, take a couple spins with my mother-in-law, and my groom (who is already 6’2) was hoisted onto the shoulders of his 6’7 cousin for some outrageous moves!”
