When I met Tori and Kyle early last year, I knew that they would be a joy to work with. As the family and bridal party mentioned in their toasts, they can truly light up a room. Upon viewing the Farmhouse with Tori and her mom, she wanted the space decked out to be a fall fantasy, complete with rich hues and nods to the couple's love of wine. For this to happen, they spread their theme across the gazebo, placed mixed centerpieces across the tables, and had wine bottles as the bud vases.
With handling the music, Tori and Kyle went beyond using just services provided by the DJ. Family friends happily played ceremony music as the bridal party walked down the aisle. When the meals were done, guests were in for a very special treat. Tori's father is in a classic rock cover band! He placed his drum set right in front of the DJ stand and performed a few songs on his kit with an accompanying music track. It set the tone for everyone to continue partying into the night.
What makes a wedding stand out are the extra vendors brought in that couples do not normally consider. Tori and Kyle hired the Mobile Cigar Lounge to set up a stand to roll fresh cigars on-site. Each cigar was held together with their last name, Laden, on a decorative strip. It made a wonderful photo op and extra treat for Kyle and his groomsmen.
Congrats to the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Laden! You were a joy to work with, and wish you the best on your journey through marriage.
