Classically Romantic Mauve and Navy Cally Lilly Summer Wedding: Eleanor + Rip

Eleanor and Rip had a gorgeous outdoor wedding surrounded by so much love! The ladies started by popping champagne in the Summer Parlor and the guys played some pool in the Game Room. Once we tied all the guy’s bowties, pinned boutonnieres, and Rip and Eleanor did their final last touches, they were ready for their first look! Their first look was overlooking the grounds and the “Love” sign added a cute little touch to the background of the photos. After their first look, it was on to wedding party photos and then the ceremony!

The Garden Ceremony was decorated with calla lilies and the arbor was draped in beautiful, white fabric and surrounded by stunning floral arrangements. A piano player accompanied the Ceremony as the wedding party walked in together with the ring security following close behind. In preparation for Eleanor’s grand entrance, the ushers rolled out the runner and the flower girl strutted her stuff. When Eleanor made her grand entrance there was not a dry eye in the house.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds enjoyed ten minutes of alone time before going back out for some more photos. Eleanor and Rip were introduced into the reception with a beautiful first dance to “Spend My Life With You”, by Eric Bennett and Tamla, followed by an upbeat dance to “Let’s Get Married”, by Jagged Edge. Eleanor first danced with her brother and then about halfway through all three of her brothers joined and danced to “My Girl”, by The Temptations. The dance floor was packed the rest of the night and ended with sparklers! Scroll below to see all of Eleanor and Rip’s gorgeous photos!
