Gardens of Castle Rock Wedding / Sarah + Ben / July 2019
Sarah and Ben met on Tinder. They met for a cup of coffee and it went so well that they set a plan to meet later that evening after Sarah watched the Badger game. She warned Ben she would either be in the best mood (if they won) or the worst, but Ben didn’t care. He picked her up, held her hand, and they have been inseparable ever since. Their wedding this past summer at The Gardens of Castle Rock was laid back, full of fun, and one of a kind.
The day started super relaxed with Sarah and her friends in the bridal cottage, while Ben and his friend played bocce ball outside. Once everyone was dressed and ready, they met outside for their first look. They shared a few moments alone, then invited their family in to take some photos before the ceremony.
Their dear friend officiated their ceremony. After a few readings, she tied a knot with their hands together to symbolize their tight bond. Sarah and Ben shared their first married kiss, then headed back down to the bridal cottage to enjoy a glass of champagne.
They met their guests for social hour on the patio. Everyone was able to mingle and enjoy snacks and drinks until dinner.
The tent was decorated with simple elegance for the reception. Each table had unique features, which is something Sarah and Ben wanted to pull through each chord of their wedding. They weren’t traditional, so they put their own spin on each piece. My personal favorite was Sarah’s vinyl collection that she brought for her DJ to spin all night long.
Sarah and Ben – you two are beyond amazing! Your wedding was unique, tasteful, and so fun. I know you two will be happy for years to come, especially with your sweet doodles by your sides.
Also, a huge shout out to their wonderful vendors!
