About The Wedding
Whitney and Robert's wedding was a formal affair at Summerour Studio. They went traditional all the way, opting not to see each other until the ceremony, which took place on the gorgeous carved wood staircase beneath a crystal chandelier. Whitney's childhood pastor officiated, adding a personal feel to the service. Afterwards, guests gathered for cocktail hour in the Tuscan-style front courtyard, while the ballroom was transformed. The centerpiece of the reception decor was the grand estate table, set on risers in front of the staircase. String lights illuminated the dance floor, and guests enjoyed a served dinner and dancing to the band's "soulful rock." For the favors, Whitney offered monogrammed mason jars and cones of hot chocolate mix (her grandmother's special recipe). After the last dance ("Come Away With Me"), Whitney changed into her departure outfit, and she and Robert departed in a Jaguar amidst a shower of dried lavender.
My Favorite Detail
Robert wore his grandfather's pocket watch, complete with silver chain - a beautiful personal touch. He had it restored, and it kept perfect time!
My Favorite Moment
For the father/daughter dance, Whitney surprised her father by having the band start out playing the standard "What A Wonderful World," and after one verse, they went into "Sweet Home Alabama" - his favorite! The expression on his face was priceless!

Comments From The Couple
I could not be happier with Circle of Love Weddings and the services provided by Daria MacGregor for our wedding. She pays such attention to detail that there is no need to worry about anything being missed. Even the things you do not realize need to be remembered. She will do as little or as much as requested, and goes out of her way to make each of her couples feel special. I could go on and on about the little details that made Circle of Love Weddings the best choice for a coordinator, but I truly think you should give her a call and experience them all for yourself. You will not regret it! ~ Whitney (bride)
