Deana & Scott's Dream Wedding Comes True

When I first got the call from my colleague Sandy Bell of Imperial Events to cover Deana & Scott's wedding I was too excited! I'd seen a Facebook post a few days earlier on the wedding and thought to myself it would be really nice to cover the event for my blog. My random thought became a reality and I was honored to witness the intimate ceremony of Deana and Scott along with their close family and friends.

I arrived at the Georgian Terrace Hotel a little early to take a look around this amazing hotel that I'd driven by numerous times to take some pictures. This hotel is a sight to behold! Ornate carvings, marble floors, crystal chandeliers, lavish furnishings...you really have to see it to believe it.

When my assistant and I stepped into the Grand Ballroom our mouths dropped. The already gorgeous room was being transformed into a cozy fall evening complete with pumpkins.

    And then the moment came...

Brody and Emory beamed with pride as they escorted their mother Deana down the aisle. It was truly a heartwarming moment to see the love between the couple and their children.

When love is real you can feel it all around you, and the love between Scott and Deana permeated the room as family and friends witnessed the sharing of vows and the joining of a family in holy matrimony.

It was truly amazing to see all the vendors who donated their talents and time, working together to make Deana & Scott's day a reality. I got an opportunity to talk with a few of them before the wedding...

 Husband and wife team John and Lorri Davidson of Davidson's Crazy Good Cakes are simply amazing people who didn't think twice about creating a masterful and delicious wedding cake for the couple.
Dalena Stapp and her fiance  Andi Hidi (not pictured) owners at Euro Andy Events provided all the sound and music.

The culmination of Deana and Scott's wedding is proof of what can be accomplished when a community comes together to help friends who are in need. November 10, 2013 is a day I will never forget because I witnessed the true power of love and the greatness of the human heart.
