Real Wedding :: Brittany + Tom

Their gorgeous Cypress Grove Estate House Wedding

We absolutely loved working with Brittany and Tom! The couple continuously surprised each other with thoughtful gestures throughout the day. Our gorgeous bride had to giggle her way through all the tears of happiness! Having met Brittany when she first stumbled upon Cypress Grove, she was on top of planning from day one! She already knew every little detail that would go into making her dream day a reality.

Working as her venue event manager, I had the pleasure of watching those little details come to life throughout the planning process. With our clients, we help design and craft layouts, assist with linens, finalize their menu and rentals and help create those personalized moments Brittany and Tom were so passionate about! Seeing all those carefully planned decisions come to life on wedding day is the best feeling! And watching our couple’s faces is something we never grow tired of.

From the moment their spaces are unveiled to the first bite of their custom crafted menu, we love being a part of their special day! Their wedding was beautiful however, it didn’t compare to Brittany’s smile. The day was everything we had planned for it to be and through the many joyful tears and countless smiles. Brittany and Tom’s wedding day was a reminder of just how special your wedding can be here!

XOXO,
Alecia


Real Wedding :: Jamie + Ryan

During wedding planning, your family can either drive you insane or keep you sane, and for this couple, all they wanted was to celebrate their marriage with their families 😊 Jamie and Ryan are that couple who is just so happy to be together that everyone around them soaks up the love. On wedding day, leading up to their first look they would just be smiling constantly, and you could tell they were so excited to get things going! I had to peek in on their first look and I’m so happy I did; Ryan’s face was something so raw and sweet, and Jamie had the biggest smile on her face! Once they were able to hold hands and relax, the rest of the day unfolded perfectly. They are huge on family and with both sides filling up their wedding party, their families were certainly becoming one and growing! Their traditional Jewish ceremony was intimate and so heart felt.


A clean and classic style is what Jamie and Ryan had in mind from the very beginning of their planning journey. Tying in the southern charm of Cypress Grove with farm tables and French country chairs was the icing in the whoopie pie {you’ll get the pun a little later ;-)}! With a classically stunning couple, romantic market lights, and a touch of winter, our Bride and Groom were in awe over their vision coming to life! This happy go lucky couple couldn’t have made their families and friends smile any more if they tried! They even decided to surprise guests by feeding each other giant whoopie pies instead of cake 😉

Wedding Inspo :: Burgundy + Copper

Nicole and Michael held their outdoor wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House and they featured one of my most favorite colors in their wedding palette – burgundy! This rich hue made an appearance in their stationery suite, throughout the floral, and even in their specialty rentals from our inventory.

Pro tip :: incorporating your color palette or a particular design into your invites gives guests a taste of what to expect at your wedding.

The couple worked with our bestie, Lesley with Flowers by Lesley, to dream up a simple but oh, so romantic ceremony-scape complete with flowy white draping, some gorgeous gazebo arrangements, and a lovely lush garland to drape the back row of seating.

When it came to vintage rentals we had the perfect pieces to complement Nicole + Michael’s color palette – a mix of sofas, chairs, and side tables from our Chicago and Santa Rosa collections made up a plush social lounge and copper chargers added another pop of color + some great texture in the reception space.

Pro tip :: feature a mix of traditional rounds with rustic farm tables for a unique reception look.
