Cherokee Ranch and Castle has quickly become one of my favorite venues. The reasons are obvious. It is an old castle. It sits on top of the hill overlooking Daniels Park. It is intimate and beautiful. When Lizzy and Jonas told me that they were getting married there I was ecstatic. Lizzy was going to be a fairy tale bride. I knew she had the style for it. The wedding, I knew, was going to be gorgeous.
I love Jonas and Lizzy for many reasons. I love how they are so real together. They make each other laugh. They crack jokes at each other and are extremely sarcastic. I love seeing Lizzy playfully hit Jonas to stop when she really thinks he is so funny. At his heart, he would die for her. You can tell the look in his eye when he sees her. He also was so incredibly smily on his wedding day. Lizzy has fallen for all of Jonas’ charm. On that day she was so excited and happy tears just kept pouring out.
Their family felt the same. Person after person would come and congratulate them and either share the cheek paining giant smile of Jonas or the delicate happy tears of Lizzy. There was not a blank reaction in the crowd. Their parents were with them every step of the way. Their friends were there to build them up and were so excited when they finally got to say “i do”.
Lizzy’s dress was just as I thought. It was intricate and dazzling and made for a queen. The room was decorated in elegant mirrors and purples. Flowers and sequence. It was elegant but glamorous. The style fit the castle perfectly and Adrienne and her team from The Gardner Effect pulled it together wonderfully. Throughout the night the music was pumping and EVERYONE was dancing. Yes the seats were empty after dinner. I give a lot of credit to Lizzy’s mom for getting the party started. They were having a wonderful time. When it was time to leave glow sticks lined the exit to Jonas’ white mercedes. It was the perfect wedding get away car. Power and beauty in one.
It was an awesome day with a family that deserves the best. I am so excited for Lizzy and Jonas and what the future holds for them! Congrats!
Thanks for all the work of the wonderful vendors
