MayKayLa planned her wedding knowing that October could be surprisingly warm – and it was! Her dream dress of spaghetti straps and lace was romantic and elegant in the barn wedding.

The Groom balanced her elegance with style in a gray suit jacket and open button down white shirt with a pink kerchief in the breast pocket. Jeans kept the style of the barn wedding venue.

The Barn is elegant with the afternoon sunlight and open doors. The white curtain trim on the alter makes for a dreamy destination and provides definition for the chandelier.

The Bride included hand lettered messages defining love at each row of seating. Dried flower arrangements capture the beauty of the October wedding while being wistful and romantic.

The couple chose a three tier wedding cake and surrounded it with trays of cupcakes in a white and chocolate. The main cake is decorated with roses and a back wicker screen frames the cake table and is decorated with garland and roses. 

The cakes were crafted with love by Andrea Gummo, who happens to be the Bride’s Mother.
