Emily + Ryan

Their ceremony was simple and sweet, performed by a close friend with hand-written vows. During the cocktail hour, guests mingled in the grass, playing croquet and sipped drinks from Pearl Catering.

When it was time for dinner, the tables were adorned with gorgeous flowers and hops from Knot and Fern, along with pottery-piece place cards made by the bride. After dinner, Emily and Ryan decided against the traditional wedding cake and treated guests to mini pies from The Pie Spot.

Just as the party was winding down, DJ Robby from Event Team Entertainment invited everyone to make a circle around the bride and groom for the last song.
