Vibrant purples, clean whites and sprays of greenery set the tone for Sarah and Rich’s floral filled black tie wedding.
Imagine you get set up with a guy, check him out a bit, talk over social media and you finally say yes to a first date then chicken out. What’s your next move? Well if the man you’re ditching is anything like Rich, he’ll let you chicken out several times within a month before seeing him. Lucky for Sarah, Rich took the cancellations like a champ and when the two of them finally had their first date she knew she’d never cancel again!
After seeing each other for a while, Rich and Sarah went up north to Flagstaff to stay at Sarah’s parent’s house in Forest Highlands with Sarah’s best friend and her boyfriend. While they were there, Sarah’s friend suggested that they should look cute for dinner later that night to take pictures by the lake. Little did Sarah know that this was all part of the plan. Once ready for dinner, the pair walked towards the golf course where Sarah saw the words “will you…” spelt out in rose petals, and Rich got down on one knee! But the surprises didn’t stop there, the photographer that Rich got to film their proposal was a surprise guest who was Sarah’s life-long friend who had been living in New Jersey! A proposal and reunion all in one, what a night!
For Sarah and Rich, the fun was just getting started. Sarah envisioned a romantic, traditional black tie wedding and that’s exactly what she got! The color scheme was set to include white, ivory, champagne, lilac and plum with hints of evergreen and was perfectly executed within the wardrobes, floral arrangements and décor! The ceremony and reception took place at Chateau Luxe, and the couple said that the scenery was a highlight for sure! The couple incorporated Jewish traditions within their ceremony by “smashing” a glass when they were announced as husband and wife, and the Hora dance was performed at the reception to keep the traditions going! These monumental moments for Sarah and Rich’s day were captured by Love Story Films and photographed by Monique Hessler Weddings.
