Market at Grelen Wedding | A Blue and Coral Summer Wedding

Justin and Christiana’s Market at Grelen wedding was garden inspired with touches of blue and coral and beautiful lush bouquets. These two honeymooned in Disney World and it’s only fitting that their day was a fairytale. This July wedding was blessed with some cloud coverage and a summer day without rain. Christiana’s dress was magical with the lace detailing. She bought her dress from the same bridal boutique that her mom had bought her veil 26 years ago! These types of personal touches are what make a wedding so sweet. Christiana also had her great-grandmother’s butterfly pin on her bouquet. You’ll see this gold Heirloom in some of the bridal detail photos!

I loved the touches of coral and blue throughout their wedding day. Wait until you see their wedding cake- truly beautiful with pink and coral flowers styled tastefully on the different tiers.

Their first look was adorable and set the magical tone for the rest of the evening. Of course, as a photographer one of my favorite things about The Market at Grelen is all the different locations for portraits. After family formals, J & C took a couple of portraits in the half-moon garden before enjoying cocktail hour and then we whisked away for 10 minutes before sunset. We wandered around the orchard and these light-filled portraits are straight out of a fairytale!

The night ended with a luxurious getaway car and the rest is history!
