From a cart full of clowning groomsmen, to a kiss on the bridge at Terrace Lagoon, to posing with the colorful totems at Australian Outback, it was fun and cheer for the smiling pair.

With spectacular lighting in the tented reception dinner area, the evening glowed in hues of pink and purple. The beautiful floral centerpieces accented the zebra-stripe napkins and touches of gold throughout the decor. The stunning three-tiered wedding cake was decorated with sweeps of purple and sparkling accents, almost too pretty to eat—almost!
