Latoya and Tom chose the lovely Lowertown Event Center to have their wedding ceremony and reception. Along with help from their friends and family, they were able to DIY much of the decor such as the beautiful table linens, cake platters, and antique books making up their centerpieces. (We were even able to capture some photos of the entire wedding party helping decorate the room. The ones of the groomsmen folding napkins is pretty cute!) Each table had its own cake from Nothing Bundt Cake that tasted as good as they looked! (The table I sat with even enjoyed their cake first before dinner! Lol!) Latoya picked out the gorgeous dusty rose fabric they made into the table linens. These table linens are beautiful and really set the scene at Lowertown Event Center for their romantic, vintage wedding! It seems blood, sweat and tears probably went into the planning of this wedding because the details were amazing! The beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces were designed by Colleen's Flower Cellar and just added all the more to the ladies' dresses as well as the room. Succulents were a unique addition to the bouquets and fit in so well for this winter/early spring wedding! Latoya looked stunning in her dress with details of lace in a champagne shade. As Latoya was preparing to get into her dress, I found out there would be a unique twist on tradition. Latoya requested that Tom get her into her dress! I snapped away as he helped her balance and was a complete gentleman. Lowertown Event Center has a separate ceremony space decorated with a wooden backdrop for ceremonies and also works well for formal family photos! We utilized some of the areas close Mear's Park for some quick outdoor wedding party portraits during cocktail hour since it was still quite cool weather.
Latoya and Tom's wedding details were spectacular, but what is always my favorite part of a wedding is listening to their loved ones during speeches. These two are truly a special couple who have been overjoyed to find each other and look forward to a lifetime together.
