250 family and friends gathered to celebrate true love on this crisp, spring day! Denise and Devin tied the knot at the beautiful Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in late May.
The bride said: “Although I know I am biased, since almost every bride believes her wedding to be unique and perfect, I found ours to stand out because of how personal it was. I married Devin as he wore his Marine Corps dress blues, and danced our first song as he wore his civilian tuxedo. His exit out of the Marine Corps after 11 years as a fighter pilot took place only a month and a half after our wedding.”
During cocktail hour, they brought their Paris engagement to life by incorporating Parisian details such as: French martinis that were passed to the tunes of Bon Musique, a French jazz band. The couple and amazing design team brought the outdoors in by creating a “Midsummer’s Night Dream” ambiance.
“Our families, friends, and wedding team exceeded our expectations in every way to make our wedding one of the greatest days of our lives, one that we will never forget.” – Denise
