Ariel and Wes's Griffin Gate Wedding

Beautiful and Romantic Griffin Gate Wedding

Close family and friends joined Wes and Ariel on a beautiful Kentucky fall day to celebrate their union. Ariel exudes class, so it was no surprise that she chose the beautiful Mansion at Griffin Gate Marriott as the backdrop for her big day. It was important for Ariel to include lots of personalized touches. From the countless framed family photos, to flowers and stones from her family home in Elizabethtown, to the Swiss penny in her shoe and her grandmother's Bible in her cascading bouquet, there was no shortage of meaningful details. Wes and Ariel even exchanged Ariel's mother and late father's wedding bands and sealed their commitment with a Covenant of Salt. The celebration moved inside the mansion where guests were treated to dinner and several delicious cake options, including lemon poppyseed with lemon curd filling, white with raspberry filling, carrot, Italian cream, and chocolate with chocolate fudge filling. The beautiful weather allowed for mingling and dancing on the patio under twinkling lights. To wrap up a perfect day, guests sent Wes and Ariel on their way with a sparkler exit.
