The vows had been spoken and the cake had been cut. Their guests emptied the room and it was just the two of them left. And there, standing in the middle of the dance floor, he took her by the hand, beginning the steps of the very last dance of the night. A song played only for them. There were moments of sweetness as he pulled her in close, and moments of silliness as he twirled her so fast her dress doubled in size. It was a perfect representation of the two of them together. The silly combined with the sweet, the oh so genuine but never too serious, and most importantly so very full of love . . . .

Sarabeth and Dale are married! We were so lucky to be invited up to Port Orange to document their big day at The Estate on the Halifax, and oh what a wedding this was friends! When we arrived to the venue their were literal squeals (and not just from Sarah) about how perfectly charming every bit of the property was, from the timeless chapel to the hidden paths to the little ivy filled nooks that literally felt like something out of a storybook. Sarabeth got ready in the most charming house, where she put on a classic dress that couldn’t have fit her or the setting any better. And after getting ready in a real, live train car (we told you this wedding was amazing) Dale waited for his bride to be at the front of the aisle. The two of them opted to exclude a traditional bridal party, and spoke their vows in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends.
The reception was filled with purple, gold, and marble details, as well as some nods to their feline fur kids. Cat-themed place cards helped guests find their seats, and a kitty bride and groom cake topper were the perfect accent to their floral-filled cake. And then, after all the formalities of the night were complete, a crazy fun dance party kicked off that included a playlist of songs handpicked by the bride and groom.
Sarabeth and Dale, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your best day ever! As always you two made it so much fun, and we loved getting to spend time with you guys again!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
