Desirae and Travis

Desirae and Travis were all smiles as they said they vows and became a family in front of family and friends.

A Gatsby theme set the tune for the evening with sparkling feathers and dazzling headresses adorning the ladies, while the gentlemen rocked some dapper 20’s style hats. Tears glistened in the eyes of the guests all night through some heartfelt toasts and especially as Travis danced with Desirae’s daughter now that they officially became a family.

Katie and Dan

Katie and Dan tied the knot amidst visions of flowing fabric and crystal chandeliers in our Great Hall, then celebrated in the great outdoors with Pisco Sours and Mojitos.  They danced the night away and left under a shower of sparklers for the perfect end to a perfect evening.

Laura and Jerrett

It was a perfect day in July for Laura and Jerett’s big day. They had a beautiful ceremony on the Promenade, followed by drinks on the deck and dinner inside the Great Hall. Everything was personalized, even down to the homemade jams for favors. All of the decor was DIY and the couple did an amazing job. The party continued into the night, and the bride tossed her bouquet from the balcony down to the waiting ladies below.

Thanks to the couple’s great team for making this such a success – Elephant’s Deli, Powers Photography Studios and Only the Best Sound

Here are some photos from the lovely Powers team

Dionne and Clive

The weather was perfect for the celebration of Dionne and Clive’s wedding; the ceremony took place earlier in the day in Salem. Toasts and mingling took place out on the Promenade while the sun was going down, and then everybody moved up to the Great Hall for a late dinner by Premiere Catering and a fun party. The night ended with a beautiful sparkler exit with family and friends.

Shannon and Joshua

Shannon and Joshua couldn’t have picked a more perfect day for their wedding! After their ceremony, guests celebrated with a view of the river and games like cornhole and horseshoe on the waterfront.

The fun continued in the Great Hall with DIY details that were expertly arranged by Champagne Wedding Coordination and delicious food by Elephants Delicatessen, with some spectacular cakes from Papa Haydnshannon and joshua. Congrats to the blissful couple!

JoAnne and Steven

What a gorgeous day for JoAnne & Steven’s wedding! It was a breezy 80 degrees out on the shady promenade for the vows. Everyone moved upstairs for a lovely reception, and then guests danced the night away. Premiere Catering kept everyone fed and happy as they kept their feet dancing and congratulating our wonderful couple.

Cheers to JoAnne and Steven!


Carrie and Kyle

It was a hot but gorgeous day for Carrie & Kyle’s “I dos” With an amazing spiral set up and drinks to cool guests off, their ceremony was truly one of a kind. After a magical first dance on a fogged over dance floor guests enjoyed dancing, toasts and cake.

Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Kimmerle

Dasche and Tracee

Vintage details decked out the Great Hall for Tracee and Dasche’s waterfront wedding.  The heat didn’t  bother the guests once they spotted the beautiful bride, and they danced the night away in the Great Hall.  Tracee and Dasche made a grand exit in style under a shower of sparklers as they made their way out to a vintage Bentley.

Shelby and Connor

The sprinkles kept at bay for Shelby and Connor’s big day, and luckily the light breeze kept flowing to keep the guests cool during the noon ceremony in the heat. The reception was decorated in shades of purple, and the cake had cascades of purple flowers flowing down the front. Everything came together perfectly and looked so amazing. Guests stayed to celebrate into the late afternoon/early evening and were entertained with serenades from the bride to her new husband.
