Nestled in the woods just off of Half Moon Lake, Ray & Arlene have a stunning property – the perfect place to host an amazing party. They celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary in style and with their closest family and friends there to help them celebrate.
Arlene is truly a talented woman!!! Not only did she plan and design everything, she also made the cake! Everything was so beautifully decorated and Arlene’s sister Joyce did an amazing job with the florals. Every single guest received a beautifully monogrammed wine glass (monagrammed by a friend), as well as an engraved coaster.
The vow renewal and ceremony was so touching and beautiful. Ray stood with his son while Arlene was walked down by her grandson, accompanied by her beautiful daughter and grand daughter. The weather was absolutely perfect!!
You can tell this lake community is tightly nit. Everyone is so friendly and most of their neighbors who are also their close friends, were in attendance. Off we went to their friends’ stunning yard to do some family and formal portraits. Yet another gorgeous property!
Dinner & Reception
As I mentioned before, the decor was just beautiful, the meal was delicious and everyone had such a great time mingling, visiting and catching up. After dinner was over, everyone moved over to the barn for some drinks & dancing. I’m not quite sure how old it is but this barn is amaaazing!!! A yummy candy bar and beautiful banners from Mexico we strung across and decorated the barn beautifully . This is definitely the perfect place to host a dance party!!!
Ray & Arlene, wishing you the happiest of anniversaries and here’s to 25 more! Thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special day.
