People always say that rain on your wedding day is lucky, right? After all 300 chairs had been set for Caroline & Bell’s outdoor ceremony, the heavens opened up and a downpour began. In the end, every chair was wiped down to make it an enjoyable ceremony for their loved ones. Following the modern cultural ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour and then were ushered into the greenhouse at Black Diamond Gardens just as another rain shower began! Inside, the Willow & Ivy Events team transformed the space into a light and airy dream with metallic geometric touches and tons of greenery from Stephanie Roseanne Design. The backdrop behind the bride and groom was especially fun! 5 gold hoops affixed with greenery and the couple’s names was a unique personal touch.
“I always wanted to get married at a greenhouse,” said bride Caroline. “Bell and I searched and searched for the perfect venue. One night, (after almost giving up on the search) Bell found this venue that was perfect for us. It was a greenhouse in a garden. I immediately knew it was our perfect venue. I wanted my wedding to be simple, classy and romantic. I wanted lots of greenery and flowers.” With the help of expert planners Willow & Ivy Events I think her vision definitely came to life!

Advice from the bride: “Go to as many bridal sample sales as you can! I saved so much money on sample sales. Make a list of what is most important to you and your partner for you wedding day and stick to it. Do not waste money on expensive wedding favors, most people end up not taking it.”
