Ariel & Drew's wedding was full of creative charm and sentimental sweetness. During the ceremony, Ariel and Drew planted a tree in soil from their childhood homes. After the ceremony, the bride, groom and their bridal party posed for pictures with the mother of the bride's 66' Chevy truck. This was the truck Ariel first learned to drive. For the reception, guests were invited to find their "party animal" on a custom designed and coordinated seating chart. Each animal was individually drawn and designed by the bride herself while the centerpieces were hand sculpted by the mother of the bride. Many memories were made as the two families celebrated the marriage of these two high school sweet hearts. Congratulations, Ariel & Drew!
Words from the bride...
"The Grove made our fairy tale wedding in the woods come true! Just driving in we could tell we wanted to have our special day there. The beautiful driveway, trees, and gorgeous outdoor ceremony sites were exactly what we wanted. The reception barn was the perfect size for our guest count of 75, and didn't need much decoration. Susan and Brian are so helpful and answered all our questions. Best of all, they didn't have the piles restrictions and rules that other venues did, and were able to have the wedding and reception that we wanted. It was great to be there all day, and not be rushed, and to have a beautiful bridal suite on site. Bobbie is a wonderful on site coordinator and made our dream wedding come true while we relaxed and enjoyed the company of our friends. She was great at managing everything, handling last minute details, and making our vision a reality. Thank you so much for our perfect wedding day!"
Congratulations, Ariel & Drew!
