A mug of hot apple cider greeted guests as they stepped through the door.  The sweet smell of autumn, and an air of anticipation filled the Golden Horseshoe Inn on Jasmine and Joshua’s wedding day!  Our bride Jasmine loved the idea of keeping things simple and easy, while still elegant and fun!  A personalized crossword puzzle with clues about the wedding day and the years leading up to it put a unique twist on traditional wedding favors and it was fun to hear all the answers revealed towards the end of the evening.  Jasmine looked so beautiful in her gown and veil, and enjoyed a morning getting ready with her bridesmaids in the dressing suite.  Each of her attendants was gifted a personalized wine glass and a beautiful “tie the knot” bracelet.   The girls were also busy creating their own handmade bouquets with roses and hydrangea they brought to the venue that morning.  Over in the Groom’s suite, there was lots of fun and good cheer as the gentlemen prepared for the day ahead.  And although a lingering mist convinced us to hold a cozy ceremony indoors, Jasmine and Joshua braved the light rain with me for some beautiful autumn photos on the grounds of the Golden Horseshoe Inn and up on the misty mountaintop.  A wonderful dinner was catered by Mission BBQ (the brisket was soooo good!) and lovely speeches by the bridal party and father of both bride and groom capped of dinner time.  After an evening filled with dancing, cigars for the groomsmen, and a bouquet toss, the couple was sent on their way with a sparkler send off.  It was a lovely day, for an incredible couple, and we were so very glad to have had the honor of hosting.  I am so excited to show you some favorite moments from Jasmine and Joshua’s gorgeous fall wedding day…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
