Last week I had the privilege of coordinating my friends Marisa and Mike's Friday night wedding at the Winter Park Farmers Market. With a stellar team that included Heather Ahrens of HA! Photography and DJ Fun Factory, along with assistance from Jessy Rivers of E-Events, this wedding was perfectly woven together by loving friends and family willing to pitch in to make it all come together.
Mike and Marisa's laid back personalities and understanding of the wedding day for what it symbolizes made both the ceremony and reception unique. The ceremony was decorated with Moroccan lanterns at the altar and an overflowing patio of loved ones. Upon entering the indoor reception at the Winter Park Farmers Market, guests were greeted with an open buffet of Buck's BBQ, a specialty cocktail of "Black Eyed Susans", and Marisa's DIY guest book table decor: a true "family tree" with special portraits of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles hanging with ribbon from each branch. After much dancing and catching up with friends and family from across the entire country, guests went home happy with a delicious caramel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
Thanks to everyone for helping Mike and Marisa celebrate this special day! Here is a sneak peek of HA! Photography's candid portraits from the evening.
