Laura and Alex were married at the Duportail House, which has quickly become one of our favorite venues. It has everything we love in a wedding venue including an interesting history, charming buildings, and beautiful grounds that make you feel like you’re in an enchanted forest. Their wedding setting became even more ideal with some additional touches like the lovely floral arrangements, created by Maura Rose Events, and the incredible farm tables by Barnes Handcrafted Farmhouse Tables, LLC.
Laura got ready in a pretty light filled bridal suite with her bridesmaids, and a few close family members. We won’t forget her Grandmother’s beaming smile as Laura was putting her dress on. It was the kind of smile that would make anyone instantly happy. Even though there was a slight rain shower while Laura was getting ready, it stopped just in time for their first look. This wedding season we’re becoming quite familiar with rainstorms that stop just when we need them to. Laura and Alex had their first look on a sweet bridge surrounded by beautiful tall trees, a.k.a “the enchanted forest.” Just imagine the heart eyed emoji and that is exactly what Laura and Alex looked like when they first saw each other. We don’t expect this look of love will ever leave their faces.
Since there was no sign of rain for the rest of the day, Laura and Alex were able to have their intimate ceremony outside on the front porch of the Duportail House. The rest of the day was filled with fun, laughter, great food and oh so much dancing! We were thoroughly impressed on how packed the dance floor was the entire night, and how the groom’s parents never left it. Congratulations Laura and Alex! Thank you for including us on your special day!
