One of our favorite quotes about love says –

“True love does not stifle you; it’s not a cage hiding you from the world. True love is a platform, it’s the wings that you need to fly, the fuel for your dreams.” – Unknown

This quote reminds us of our lovely couple Danielle & Boyd who held their wedding at Ralston’s Crossing Event Center – a smaller event venue that features a quaint white chapel, a beautifully landscaped garden, and an open-air pavilion.

On the morning of their wedding Boyd surprised Danielle with a vibrant bouquet of long-stemmed red roses in her dressing room. We were able to incorporate this beautiful arrangement in other areas as well – at the greeting station and also as décor for the signing of their marriage license.

The couple’s wedding ceremony took place on the back lawn with the gazebo as their focal point. White fabric panels were hung within the gazebo to create a simplistic, yet romantic backdrop while tiny turquoise glass vases studded the front-side of the structure and aisle-way bringing pops of color and life.

Danielle and Boyd chose to write their own vows to one another. During their vow exchange it became blatantly clear that they each believed themselves to have become a better person because of the other. They were each other’s platforms, each other’s wings, and the fuel for each other’s dreams.

The reception space was classic and rustic. Deep blue linens with burlap table runners dressed each table. Wood slab chargers, glass blue water goblets, natural and navy striped linen napkins, and gold flatware designated each place setting.

The couple’s sweet heart table was positioned in front of a rustic wooden door from which the couple had hung a few Edison light bulbs from to cast a romantic glow. Their table-for-two featured the same set up as that for their guest tables along with personalized champagne flutes and a personalized wood sign with the couple’s last name set at the base of the table.

The couple’s dinner menu featured barbeque favorites, such as brisket and macaroni and cheese, to which they supplied “Boyd’s Secret Sauces” – a variety of barbeque sauces with which guests could garnish their meal – the groom is a HUGE fan of all sorts of sauces! For dessert in lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the couple opted for a 2-tiered bundt cutting cake and then stocked their dessert table with mini bundt cakes in a variety of flavors. After their cake cutting the bride surprised her groom with his very own groom’s cake made to look like his favorite food – chicken wings!

Danielle and Boyd put so much thought into every last detail for their wedding. Because of this attention to detail every element came together seamlessly and made sense. They managed to pull off a very sophisticated event in a rather rustic venue, perfect blending of two different styles. A perfect platform for these two lovebirds to take flight from as they begin their life together as husband and wife. Thank you so much for allowing All Four Seasons Events the privilege of being a part of the journey to, and on, your wedding day. Congratulations!
