An Elegant Wedding at Venue at the Grove:
Ari and Rick had an elegant wedding at Venue at the Grove on January 15th, 2015. When I arrived to the venue, Ari mentioned that they decided to give each other their wedding gifts during the first look, so I was very excited for their first interaction before the wedding ceremony!
The ceremony started with Ari’s parents walking her down the aisle together. At the front of the ceremony, Rick stepped out and shook Donnie’s hand after he and Kim gave Ari away to marry. After the exchange of vows, Ari and Rick performed the sand ceremony and shared communion together.
Sunset was right at the time we were taking photos during the cocktail hour which left beautiful colors and light for the portraits! The reception tables were adorned with purple and white decor and silver chargers at each place setting. A small vial of blowing bubbles was also at each chair with a note that said “Blow bubbles of good wishes For the new Mr. and Mrs.” I thought that was an awesome touch, and during the first dance, a lot of guests started blowing the bubbles at them, really adding to the romantic feel of the night.
The rest of the wedding was a party! With the entertainment for the dance floor by Tony with Infinity Entertainment, there wasn’t a slow part in the night of the reception. The night finished off with the bubbles again during Ari and Rick’s grand exit!
Congratulations on getting married you two! Here are a few of my favorites from the wedding:
