Lori and Daniel were wed at the newly renovated Watermark Marina. This venue is going to be a local hotspot for big weddings: Their pier was able to accommodate Lori and Daniel’s ceremony with over 300 guests, and room to spare! We loved photographing the couple’s awesomely huge bridal party – 27 people in all! Check out our fave pic of the groomsmen, below.
Event Designer Tamara Wade of Unforgettable Events brought this couple’s vision of a rustic-yet-elegant theme to reality: Tented reception with hand-made wicker lantern chandelier, distressed wooden signs directing guests, and centerpieces including cotton sprigs and burlap. Their engagement portraits completed the rustic theme — check out lori and daniel | rustic engagement session for a sneak peek.
The weather was a blessing for most of the day – dramatic skies all day long, a beautiful sunset, and thunder clouds in the distance over the tent. Only after hours of dancing and fun did the downpour finally bring this party to an end, but we always say that rain at your wedding is good luck!
