Lauren and Kevin recently tied the knot at The Magnolia Venue nestled in the breathtaking Great Smoky Mountains. From the perfect weather to the engaging reception activities, every moment was carefully crafted to create an unforgettable experience for the couple and their guests.
Lauren and Kevin chose to do a “first look” before their ceremony, a private moment where they saw each other for the first time that day. This intimate experience allowed them to share a few moments privately and calm any pre-wedding jitters. This also allowed them to get all of their photos completed prior to the ceremony, so they could spend the time after, mingling and saying hi to guests at cocktail hour!
While guests eagerly awaited the ceremony and during the cocktail hour, they engaged in lively games such as Jenga and Connect Four. These games created an atmosphere of laughter and friendly competition, bringing people together and making the wait an enjoyable experience for all. The games not only entertained the guests but also served as icebreakers, fostering connections and creating cherished memories.
One cannot talk about Lauren and Kevin’s wedding without mentioning the beautiful cupcakes that adorned the dessert table. Expertly crafted and delicately decorated, these sweet treats were a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. Great job, @catiecakes!
During the middle of the reception, Lauren passed around a pair of cute sunglasses, featuring their initials and wedding date. This playful addition allowed each of their guests to create lasting memories and adding an extra touch of laughter to the festivities, AND they got a photo of each guest. I’ll leave some of those here! 🙂
From the perfect weather, to the playful sunglasses that brought laughter to their guests, every element of their wedding day was infused with their unique personalities and shared love. Their special day became a cherished memory, forever etched in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to be a part of it.
I hope you enjoy this look into their day 🙂
