The Ceremony and Reception:
Our short but sweet ceremony took place in front of a serene waterfall.  We hosted a small intimate reception with only our closest friends & family.  Twinkling lights amidst the treetops added to the ambiance.

I absolutely adored my bouquet, actually all of the florals.  My florist really went above & beyond… everything was more beautiful that I ever imagined.
