Real Wedding Recap: Derrick & Adrienne, I

Dr. Groomy and I attended the most AMAZING wedding this weekend.  Seriously, it was awesome—so detailed, so gorgeous, so right out of the pages of Martha Stewart Weddings…and it was so full of love and joy and friendship and FUN to boot!  I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking for these recaps, so let’s begin, shall we?

This was the wedding of our dear friends Derrick & Adrienne.  Dr. Groomy and Adrienne are friends from high school, and over the course of our relationship, I’ve become good friends with her (and her fiancé husband!) too.  The wedding was held on her family’s summer estate in northern Wisconsin, and it was gorgeous!

Adrienne & Derrick's Wedding 001  They used a canoe to hold gifts and cards.  Cute idea for a wedding at a lakeside estate, no?

A sampling of some of the florals.  They used birch tree stumps as candle holders with rose petals laid out in various designs.  They also used those moss-covered balls, hydrangeas, and roses all over the place too.

The birch theme was continued throughout the event–these are some of the cocktail tables.  In the background, you can see one of the lounge areas they had set up.  This was one of two areas—the second area was home to a large coffee table and some beautiful couches and chairs to encourage relaxing during the cocktail hour!

The groomsmen.  The ceremony was held overlooking the lake, and the groomsmen and the groom arrived to the ceremony by boat!
