For many people who step foot onto the walking path up to Bailey House, having their wedding somewhere else is not an option. Our bride and groom this past weekend, was no exception. As soon as I sat with them in the office after their walk up to the house, she knew she was having her wedding here.
A morning ceremony under the Rose Arbor, with no additional adornments other than the glow on their faces, the couple exchanged their vows. With 100 guests looking on with love and admiration, the Arboretum was brimming with pride. The weather was picture perfect and the arbor was a beautiful site.
The biggest advantage of hosting your ceremony here at the arboretum is that the grounds serve as their own decorations. There is nothing additional needed to enhance any pictures being taken. There is no added backdrop necessary. Some brides choose to add some personal flourishes to the arbor or to the gazebo in the Bird Garden, which can be beautiful of course, but is not necessary.
In this case, simple was spectacular.
