Lisa & Richard
A garden party with sparklers, a saxophonist and special moments was the perfect way for these two to celebrate their love
Lisa spent the night before her wedding with her girls, relaxing and enjoying time together before the big day. Come the morning of, she was the first one up, and a cute note from Richard brought the first of many of the day’s happy tears. Before she knew it, Lisa was on her way to the ceremony and sharing a special moment with her parents, reflecting on the expectations and excitement of the day. Once there, the bride and groom shared what they loved about each other as well as their personal vows. Then it was time to celebrate, with the newlyweds dancing into the night before guests farewelled them with a stunning sparkler send-off.
