The couple’s initials were hung with burlap and served as a backdrop on the pergola. Providing light for the ceremony were three white chandeliers along with two white lanterns atop tree stumps on either side of the pergola.
The bride wore an all-lace Mikaella bridal gown with a removable lace ribbon at the waist. She wore a belt with crystals for the ceremony and wore the ribbon belt for the reception. The sleeveless gown featured an illusion lace bateau neckline with a deep-V back and finished with a sweep train.

A memory table held photographs of the couple’s late family members. Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed music and dancing provided by DJ Pat Williams.
