Welcoming the evening, Erin and Justin’s outdoor ceremony was absolutely stunning! Mountain Shadows picturesque landscape could not have complemented the decor better. The lovely couple placed a wooden heart sign inviting guests to file in before tying the knot! White garden chairs lit the lush green grass where two wooden pedestals, adorned with succulents and rose blooms, framed the alter for Erin and Justin to say their ‘I Do’s’. When the ceremony concluded, guests enjoyed a short walk to the outdoor rooftop for a stunning view and indulgence of cocktails and appetizers! Gold votives and spray rose floral arrangements adorned grey linens by Mountain Shadows draped over high boys. As the hour concluded and the sun began to set, friends and family made their way to find their seating assignments on simple yet sophisticated escort cards.
