Amberly and Erick had a wonderful early fall wedding filled with fun details, read all about the wedding below from Amberly!
Our movie-themed wedding couldn’t have been better! The mansion is such a gorgeous venue that we kept the décor subtle including photo-shopped movie poster table “numbers” I created to showcase our bridal party as “actors” in movies, popcorn favors, and our guest book of a photo-shopped Mr. and Mrs. Smith movie poster for everyone to sign. We have so many great memories like the greatest Best Man speech ever that included a set of embarrassing pictures of Erick taped under everyone’s chair, the Best Man and MOH shot as their entrance to the reception, and crazy Uncle Willy’s unheard of “moment” during the garter removal (See photos).
The best part was how quickly Martin got the dance party started! Our guests had a blast dancing to some great music! I even learned that my younger brother can dance his butt off when we danced in the middle of a circle to “Devil Went Down to Georgia”. It was really a very fun wedding enjoyed by all. Our guests are still raving and asking if Erick and I can renew our vows next year so they can do it all over again!
Having the wedding weekend package really allowed us to relax and savor the whole experience. The memories we have of spending time with our closest family and best of friends for the duration of the weekend are so special. This could not have been possible without Martin, Paula, Marylee, and the rest of the amazing staff at the mansion.
