A truly, dreamy day for an private wedding at the estate-style venue, Lotus House
The Planning Process
When we started their wedding planning in early September, we hadn’t yet chosen the venue for Meghan & Tripp. During the process, we came across many different venues with a vision for sophisticated elegance, and all of them were nice, but didn’t quite give the bride & groom that swooning feeling. Our company knew of Lotus House, and decided to get our couple to tour this place and they loved the meticulously cultivated grounds and the expansive indoor & outdoor spaces. It was perfect.
We also created her wedding website on Riley & Grey, a luxury wedding website for design-forward couples. The website design actually inspired the bride’s choice of stationary for her wedding invitations.
The Wedding Day
The first part of the day started by transporting the bridesmaids & bride to the bridal suite at Lotus House to be pampered. The hair & makeup artist for their wedding was Makeup in the 702, who did a beautiful job getting the bride ready for her first look.
When Meghan and Tripp saw each other for the first time, it was truly an emotional display of joy and excitement! I recommend creating an intimate moment for the couple on their timeline — whether it’s a first look, 5 min alone time after the ceremony, private dinner, etc.
While this was occurring, all of the vendors were bustling around Lotus House to set-up everything to perfection & elegance. The florist, Bloomingbelles, hit the mark on opulence with the lush, white flowers and greenery. It helped that Lotus House naturally has bright, green landscape to accommodate the look Meghan & Tripp envisioned. It’s important to note, all of these wedding details were beautifully captured by Samantha Jacobs Photography, who is always able to capture the raw emotion of wedding days.
As guests began to arrive, sweet melodies filled the air by the violin trio from Premiere Wedding Music. Finally, all 40 of their friends and family sat in the beautifully picked out ghost chairs and the processional began. Everyone floated down the aisle of fluffy, white flowers looking as though they were walking on clouds. When the bride finally made her way down the aisle, everyone was breathless.
The ceremony concluded with a kiss and their “I do’s.” The string trio walked down the aisle to lead the guests to cocktail hour located inside Lotus House. Guests enjoyed amazing cocktails from Events with a Twist and found their seating arrangements via this gorgeous creation. The escort cards were hand curated single-stem, perfume-bottle vases.
They also had time to re-join their party and indulge in a specialty cocktail or two!
While cocktail hour and conversations endured, the bride and groom got to have another minute to freshen up. As well as steal a quiet moment (not even cameras following).
Guests began to find their seats and the catering team (Cut & Taste) began to confirm specialized meals for everyone. The reception looked absolutely stunning thanks to the florist, RSVP Rentals, Tag Team Productions, and the team at P3 Events. Décor set-up is no easy feat, and Meghan & Tripp were stunned by all of the details as they walked into the reception.
The couple then had their first dance under the beautiful golden hour light. Toasts & speeches right after. Then, the bride and groom didn’t waste a moment also cutting the cake before the sun went down.
The guests then partied all night with Second Song , the DJ who was able to get lots of people on the dance floor, despite the intimate 40-person guest count. There was laughter, more conversations and then the night ended with sparklers & a late-night snack by Pizza Stoned.
And this concluded the night & a wonderful intimate micro-wedding for Meghan + Tripp. Thank you to all of our wonderful vendors involved:
