Jessica & Duncan have endured all that comes with a long distance relationship (separated by the Atlantic Ocean) and their deep, unwavering love is ever-present in their photos from their stunning seaside wedding. The Montage is a very special place to Jessica and her family so it was never a question that Jessica and Duncan would say their “I Do’s” there. Jessica was a vision of beauty in her Monique Lhuillier gown and veil from Erin Cole Couture Bridal. The floral heaven began at the Ceremony and continued all the way to the reception. The ceremony was a serious stunner as Jessica and Duncan exchanged their vows beneath a structure adorned with only the prettiest spring flowers, peonies and lush juliet garden roses. There were many sweet personal touches throughout the wedding day, including a globe “guest book” rather than a traditional guest book to represent their international and long distance love. Guests enjoyed delicious spicy margaritas among other specialty cocktails and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres overlooking the Pacific Ocean during Cocktail Hour. When it came time to enter the ballroom, guests were wowed once again by the incredible atmosphere. One of the main focal points in the ballroom was the incredible dessert wall display that served as the backdrop to the wedding cake and newlyweds at their head table. Montage pastry chefs created English inspired desserts and turned them all blush, of course! And not only was this occasion absolutely beautiful, but it was full of fun from start to finish! Guests danced nonstop from the moment the doors opened to the tunes of The Shadowboxers – Nashville band produced by Justin Timberlake himself! From the food, to the beauty of the couple’s love and the stunning decor, it was an event to remember without a doubt.
