Lindsey + Matt were the couple that knew exactly what they wanted – a venue that offered waterfront views, lots of trees, and one they could truly make their own. They found all that and more at Cypress Grove Estate House, and boy are we glad they found us! Their simple decor complemented the space so well and truly brought out it’s natural beauty ?
Were there any unique elements you incorporated?
“We tried to tie in as many elements of both us and our family and friends as we could. Some of which were physical items – on Lindsey’s bouquet, jewelry was added from both of her deceased grandmothers as well as pins from her bridesmaids. Matt wore his deceased grandfathers watch. We also carefully chose our music throughout the day and night to play songs that brought back many of our favorite memories between us and our guests. “
What was your favorite part of the event?
“It’s a tie between our first look and the ceremony! Each have a million different reasons. Our first look was a super sweet ‘wow’ moment that brought everything together. This was where we both thought ‘Omg. This day is here. We’re getting married!’ During our ceremony, it was so special for us to see all of our favorite people seated in one place, wholeheartedly supporting us as we made our commitment of marriage to each other. It was also special being able to share our personal vows that we had each written to one another.”
What made you choose your venue?
“We had a ‘vision’ for our wedding venue look and feel from the start! We felt like we walked right into the picture we had in our minds when we came to visit Cypress Grove Estate. We both wanted our ceremony to be on the water and surrounded by trees with a quaint, secluded feeling. We were so excited to find exactly what we were looking for, and more, in the city where we met and where it all began for us. Cypress Grove is truly stunning!”
What was your design inspiration?
“A lot of our design inspiration came from our venue. We didn’t want to take away from the natural beauty of the cypress trees, etc. so we kept things simple! We added pops of our personal styles and favorite colors to make our wedding uniquely ours.”
Any planning tips you’d like to share with other couples?
“Our biggest tip would be to have fun! We definitely got caught up here and there with the stress of balancing work/life/wedding planning from across the country (we currently live in Las Vegas). When we learned to give ourselves grace, it became such an enjoyable experience. Some of our favorite planning moments were brainstorming together along with our cake and food tastings. Also, trust your vendors and let them do their thing! We were lucky to have an amazing team of vendors who put as at ease and blew our expectations out of the water.”
