Apple orchards, winding roads and small town generosity. Serendipity Gardens is less than an hour drive from the city but another world away. A charming wedding story of the bride’s Scotch-Irish heritage and the couple’s shared love of homemade pie, dinosaurs, and Star Wars!
On the edge of a pine forest, just down the road from Serendipity Gardens is a quaint apple orchard, a perfect location for Marnee and Dillon to sneak away for a private First-Look before the ceremony. Their vintage Pontiac looked right at home in this charming farming town too!
Perched on a hillside with the most breathtaking view of the valley below was where the couple exchanged their wedding vows. Afterward guests enjoyed cocktails under a shady canopy of trees, adorned with shimmering chandeliers. Dinner and dancing followed. Deep red tartan plaid and Scotch-Irish details represented the couples family heritage. A surprise performance by the couple was the highlight of the evening. Serious Star Wars fans, Marnee and Dillon carefully planned a lightsaber duel that was pulled off with absolute perfection! Their sure-footed skit was nearly over when suddenly Darth Vader entered the room! The music turned ominous, the couple trembled with fear, dropped their weapons and reached out for one another.Miraculously the power of their love brought Darth Vader to his knees! The crowd went absolutely wild, jumping out of their seats with cheer and laughter! Honestly it was hard to hold the camera! So much fun!
In between dancing guests mingled around the open fire pit, eating s’mores and gazing at the brilliant, starry night. Sending off the couple with a giant sparkler line up was the perfect ending to a very memorable event.
Hats off to the creative team that helped to bring the couple’s vision to life:
