FRANCESCA’S AL LAGO WEDDING by QUEENS AND HEARTS
That Saturday I start my coverage in Steven’s room where he’s hanging out with his crew. Lauren Justice, my big help on the wedding day, is with Hailey and her bridesmaids.
Right before the ceremony start, Steven with his groomsmen and parents gather in the big service kitchen- fun and somewhat unusual place to hang out before the wedding ceremony. I watch Steven fix his tie for the 25th time. Surrounded by loud chatter of his teammates he stands with his hands clenched in front and stares at the kitchen floor in silence. He occasionally nods and smiles to the surroundings, but I can tell he’s somewhere away. Somewhere deep his thoughts.
It’s a big day. Lot’s of emotions. People are very exposed. It’s a big deal. I love to be part of raw and organic moments like this one. Hailey and Steven wedding ceremony happened on the 8th floor in the Top of the Park room (AKA “urban observatory”) with walls of windows overlooking the State Capitol building and Capitol Square.
When we arrived to Francesca’s Al Lago wedding reception, we find restaurant filled with two family’s that became one earlier today, laughter and beautiful evening sun.
Cocktail hour is followed by speeches, funny weeding stories and evening filled with good vibe and non-stop laughter.
That day Hailey forgot to bring their wedding guest book to Francesca’s Al Lago wedding reception. Staff was quick to fix the situation by providing their own book filled with pictures of Italian food. I love fixes like this one! Just a friendly remainder that it’s lemonade time when life gives you lemons!
