Hands-down, we think this might be one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies we have ever seen. This amazingly long aisle, set in the middle of the woods, and lined with thousands of candles, is just absolutely perfect. Add to it a whimsical, overgrown garden feel at their reception, and the entire event is just filled with beautiful little moments and ideas to inspire you.

Alex and Trevor had some of the most beautiful details that we’ve seen , including their gorgeous ceremony location. Here they share their thoughts with us on why they chose an evening, candlelit ceremony:

“From the beginning, Trevor and I knew we wanted to do a candlelit ceremony. While we were scouting ceremony locations we realized it would be harder than we thought to find a place dark enough at 8:00 to hold a candlelit ceremony. We finally found a perfect spot but it did require a bit of walking (and a bit of creativity). We had guests arrive at 7:00 for a cocktail hour where they were greeted with trays of champagne and farm house tables full of house made breads, charcuterie and cheese. At 7:45 everyone ventured into the woods for our ceremony. The aisle was over 60 yards long and lined with over 1,000 candles. Our family and friends helped  us collect antique candlesticks and candelabras for the ceremony. We would get giddy calls from people after they found an antique candelabra for us- everyone got really into the search! It was fun!

With a 7:45pm ceremony we knew it would be a long day for our immediate family and bridal party. Trevor suggested that we serve a family style dinner for them before the ceremony. So at 5:00pm a group of 50 (our bridal party, parents and siblings) gathered in the upstairs dining room and enjoyed an intimate dinner. This is when we planned for speeches to take place, and we were overwhelmed by all of the heartfelt words from our family and friends- everyone laughed and cried through the entire dinner! Getting to enjoy a delicious meal with all of our best friends, relax and share sweet memories right before walking down the aisle is a moment in time we will never forget.”
