Hannah selected a stunning fit-and-flare strapless trumpet gown with a deep sweetheart neckline, an embellished bodice, and a full tulle skirt. Her large bouquet included red and pink roses along with eucalyptus and other greenery. Her four bridesmaids wore coordinating full-length dresses in a variety of silhouettes in shades of red and purple. They carried small bouquets of pink flowers accented with greenery.
JR got married in a black tuxedo with a white shirt, black tie, white pocket square, and white rose boutonniere. His four groomsmen wore black tuxedos with white shirts, black bow ties, white pocket squares, and red rose boutonnieres.
The officiant told the couple during the ceremony that they have chosen to be lifelong partners, that there are always surprises in marriage but that they can make them stronger, and that they should never underestimate the power of love.
Next, guests dined outside on a green salad with balsamic dressing, beef tenderloin, salmon, green beans, and mashed potatoes. The wedding favors were small boxes of chocolates.
During the speeches, the maid of honor talked about how Hannah has always pushed her to be a better person, and that when Hannah met JR, she knew this was “the real deal.” The groom’s father talked about how excited he is to welcome Hannah to the family.
Hannah and JR shared their first dance together as a married couple to “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith. Hannah and her father, and JR and his mother also shared traditional dances.
The three-tiered wedding cake featured a white-on-white design, a cascade of roses down the front, and a rhinestone cake topper of the couple’s initial.
We wish Hannah and JR all the best in their new marriage!
