Taylor and Greg's Wedding Celebrates Love

Taylor and Greg Celebrate their Love under The Pointe’s Bistro Lights

From the Bride: Greg and I have a very simplistic lifestyle, we are both not used to being the center of attention. However, we were very interested in having a beautiful celebration of our love and throwing one great party. We fell in love with the bistro lights at The Pointe. Our vision for the day was a classic tropical elegance with a simplistic touch inspired by Hemingway’s house in Key West. In my mind, I pictured beautiful, bright green palm leafs and specialty cocktails served. A classic sit down dinner was our preference vs. a buffet, and extra large pieces of cake vs. dessert tables. Simplistic and classic.

We made our day unique in a few ways, one of which was our first reading from Ruth 1:16-17. After the ceremony, our guests went to The Pointe for cocktail hour, which featured two cocktails: hers- French 75 and his- Kentucky Mule. Greg created a slide show of our favorite photos together and we had a section of photos of our 3 cats. This was our personal favorite. I was not interested in the traditional wedding party photos after the wedding, so Greg and I decided to rent a large party bus to take us to Ward 426, a restaurant where we rented out the front room and had cocktails waiting. We wanted our photographer to take realistic photos of our friends and us laughing and hanging out. The photos are so fun! We chose to do away with the traditional throwing of the bouquet and garter. it just didn't seem to be our style. The first dance was saved for my dad and I. I have always imagined that is how it should be. when my dad become very ill last year and I prayed for his recovery, I selfishly thought about this moment and if we were given more time, how special that dance would be. It meant everything to me and made that last dance so much more special with Greg. Celebrating our family was important; after all, we met because our moms were friends and his mom was relentless in her quest for us to meet.

Our cutting cake was gluten-free and came from Annie Mays, a dedicated gluten free bakery. After cutting the cake, our guests were served decadent 3-layer cake slices from Sweet Stuff. We picked our wedding date based on our bands availability. They are my personal favorite local band and we have so many fun memories dancing the night away to their music. we needed that feeling on our wedding day!
