Samantha & Michael: A Whimsical Spring Wedding

Samantha and Michael’s whimsical spring wedding at CJ’s Off the Square radiated with love and color.

The beautiful spring day began with Samantha and her closest gals getting their hair and makeup done. Samantha looked beautiful in a sleeveless, white, lace gown, while her bridesmaids wore aqua-colored dresses. The gowns, paired with their orange, yellow, pink, and purple bouquets, perfectly captured the springtime feeling. Michael and his groomsmen looked cool and collected in their light gray suits with colorful, patterned bowties. When both parties were ready, everyone participated in a toast to kick-off the day’s festivities!

The early afternoon ceremony took place in the venue’s garden, which had a minimalist setup with a colorful hanging flower arrangement inside the garden’s gazebo. Once Samantha and Michael exchanged their heartfelt vows, cocktail hour began.

The newlyweds had their own signature drinks. Samantha’s was called Home Together and made with French Pink Lady Peach Schnapps, semi-sweet champagne, grenadine, and was topped with a cherry. Fittingly, Michael’s was called Dad Jokes for Days and crafted with Captain Morgan spiced rum and Coca-Cola. As guests sipped on the custom cocktails, they were served our crab cakes and mini ham biscuits.

Once cocktail hour wound down after introductions and first dances, the buffet dinner began. The tablescapes featured greenery runners with bright flowers and bouquets, silver dinnerware that popped against pink napkins, and plates with intricate designs. Delicate chandeliers hung above the tables to give a whimsical garden feel. Dream’s culinary team crafted the dishes, including a candied pear salad, honey and thyme vegetables, charred Brussels sprouts, au gratin potatoes, bourbon glazed salmon, and beef bistro filet.

After hours passed laughing and dancing, guests gave a final congratulations to the newlyweds and sent them off with sparklers!

The love and adoration Samantha and Michael have for one another is clear, simply by looking at them. We’re so happy our team was able to play a role in your whimsical spring wedding!
