We loved Sarah + Jason’s vision to transform her parent’s backyard into a grand gilded secret garden wedding reception. Even though the rain would not let up during the week of their wedding, miraculously the clouds parted just hours before the reception and everything turned out beautifully! Sarah was inspired by the 1920’s era which led to all the sparkle and opulence. Sarah + Jason arrived in a vintage Bentley from Pech Limo and guests entered through a lantern-lit pathway which opened to a grand tent. All Seasons Event Rental provided the clear tent, draping and lighting. The clear tent allowed guests to be surrounded by the lush greens of the grounds that were also reflected in the gorgeous centerpieces and florals by Good Earth Floral. Ultrapom provided the sparkle sequin table linens, lanterns and lighting around the grounds. Brancato’s Catering provided a delicious plated meal, Party Personnel made sure the spirits flowed generously and Complete Weddings + Events kept guests on the dance floor. Sarah has an amazingly talented family–her sister designed the seating chart, her cousin baked and designed the cake, another cousin provided all the signature drinks, her father plays in a band that played live music for the reception and they all pitched in to craft the golden animals that donned each place setting and each drink! We were so honored to help bring their vision to life and be part of a backyard wedding for the books all captured stunningly by Shades of Gray Photography!
