At the very end of December 2017, we were part of Sara and Jeff’s wedding at The Capen House. It was a beautifully romantic ceremony and reception, both held outdoors. The ceremony was held on the lawn, with the reception taking place underneath a gorgeous tent on the patio. There was a very fun surprise for Sara & Jeff’s reception – Storm Troopers on the dance floor! Thank you to William Arthur Photography for sharing these photos with us, so that we can share them with you.
The day began with hair & makeup for Sara, done by Once Upon a Beauty at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando. Sara then stepped into her gorgeous gown, which had lacy details, see-through sleeves, and a cascading train. Sara and Jeff met up before the ceremony for their First Look photo shoot, Sara with her bouquet and Jeff with his boutonniere designed by Flower Girl Designs. Soon enough, it was time for the guests to arrive, and the bride and groom were tucked away in hiding.
When guests arrived, they were greeted by a lovely wooden Welcome sign and a guest book in the form of a wooden block shaped like Florida. Once they had signed their well wishes, they took their seats on aisles decorated with photographs of the happy couple. The ceremony began with underscoring done by the harpist, Christine MacPhail. Sara walked down the aisle to Jeff, they said their vows, and soon enough the two were pronounced husband and wife! They shared their first kiss and exited, excited to begin their reception.
The reception was set up underneath a beautiful translucent tent, with a chandelier hanging from the center high above. Each table had a purple linen except for the head tables at the front, which were simply raw wood with floral table runners. We loved their super-cute and rustic favors, mason jars filled with candy. The floral centerpieces were all red and green, with accents of gold throughout the space.
The reception was full of food and fun – dinner was catered by 4 Rivers Catering, with a beautiful cake made by Party Flavors Custom Cakes. While dinner was enjoyed outside on the patio, the dancing was held inside, led by DJ Fitz Otis. There was, of course, a fantastic guest appearance towards the end of the night, of two partying Storm Troopers. The night ended with a bubble grand exit, and Sara and Jeff said their final goodbyes as they rode off into their new adventure of matrimony.
Much thanks and congratulations to Sara and Jeff on their marriage; we’re so grateful to have been a part of your big day! Thanks as well to all the vendors that make these days so great:
