Sometimes cloudy days don't feel cloudy at all! Adrienne has a 10,000 megawatt smile that seems to rub off on everyone, including her more reserved groom. Speaking of the groom, while we've seen some pretty stylish ones, Jeff is certainly our most fashion-forward to date. We didn't even know that Christian Louboutin made shoes for men. So metro-manly... his boutonniere was made from a bullet casing! The two of them together look like a couple of models, but behave like the couple next door.
Their intimate wedding suited them perfectly. Over 90% of the guests flew in from out of town so that tells you how much these two are loved. It was so connected and inclusive, and we were generously welcomed right in. Adrienne's brother, Patrick, honored us with some kind words during his seriously tear-jerking toast.
Who says a small wedding doesn't feel like a party? Ummm... they tore it up way beyond midnight. Lovely people, a few tears, lots of laughter, delicious food, great music, and letting it all out on the dance floor... thank you for allowing us in.

Words from Adrienne: "Every element of the day was incredibly important to us and nearly all carried the same weight. I really wanted guests to feel transported and be in awe as soon as they entered the venue, so much that I kept all of the design details secret...even to Jeff. An intimate venue was specifically chosen so guests could feel our love and know how important it was that each person was there. As you know, we enjoy great food and wine so creating a one of a kind dining experience for this special day was an absolute necessity. As much as we wanted this day to be romantic and beautiful, it wouldn't be our style if we didn't end it with raucous dance party. Our family and friends mean the world to us and they deserved an experience they will never forget.
