Real Wedding Wednesday: Ro and Ron

Ohhhh friends! Do I have a GORGEOUS wedding today for you! Romeisha (Ro) and Ronald (Ron) met through work and dated for over two years before this big day last April.

While Ro really wanted a small destination wedding or elopement, her mom wanted a big wedding for her sweet daughter. I am so glad she went with her mom’s request because the 180 person wedding was a stunner!

The ceremony was filled with blooms to give a light and airy, garden feel. Ron waited for his bride with the biggest smile at the end of the aisle.

Their heartfelt vows had me crying like a baby! You can listen for yourself here.

With a kiss, they were married!

Don’t they make a beautiful couple?!

SO much genuine joy ?

And can we talk about how fashionable they are?! Ro’s dress was perfect for her body and I love Ron’s jacket! It is different than your typical groom look and he is rockin’ it!

My favorite pictures are always the in-the-moment and real ones and this one certainly is that! So cute!

While the couple took photos, guests enjoyed cocktail hour out in the Mankin Mansion‘s garden. Such a cool set up!

The tented reception had a berry color scheme with pops of gold. It was perfection!

How cute is this dessert set up?!

The reception started with their first dance as husband and wife and the dancing continued into the night! Congratulations Ro and Ron!
