If you haven’t seen Rosedown Weddings in Smithfield, GO! It’s an adorable rolling hills estate with an Old Plantation Style home. Played backdrop to my June couple, Michelle and Lee.
My military couple opted for their wedding to be held under Rosedown’s gazebo in the front and I concur, it was a good idea. Temperatures were more than 100 degrees that day. We opted to do our couple pics after the guests had settled in for dinner and the light had gotten lower. Love that soft, dewy, Summer light that envelopes my clients. The heat I could’ve done without!
The home was decked in a clean and crisp feel with Tiffany blue and black. Guests dined to the catering Meadow Restaurant in Benson. The cake (poor cake) was a different story. What was to be their 5 tiered wedding cake by Sugarland in Chapel Hill didn’t happen. Sadly, they had an accident on the way to the wedding. No one was hurt, thank goodness. The topper survived and was placed upon a model cake(which we took some fun pictures of with Lee) and it fit in quite nicely. Still impressive in all it’s glory, there’s no doubt this bakery has it going on. Guests enjoyed complimentary sheetcakes with a peach and blueberry filling; major YUM!
Not everything is perfect on wedding days and that shouldn’t impede upon the happiness of having a memorable wedding. I can vouch it didn’t affect this couple at all!
Congratulations Lee & Michelle! Hope you’re settling in nicely in Texas.
