Sarah and Chris

December 6th, 2010

One of the best moments we get to share here at Venue at the Grove is that moment when the doors shut, there is a slight pause, and then we push them open for the bride’s grand entrance. It’s the first time that guests and sometimes the groom get to see her, and no matter how many times we close those doors, and re-open them, there is still that feeling of anticipation and excitement.   At the wedding of Sarah and Chris, that feeling was no exception.

Sarah and Chris now live in Seattle, but are originally from here in Phoenix.  Because of logistics, Sarah’s parents had to do much of the planning, however we felt like we got to know Sarah through her parents and several phone calls of course! Even though we hadn’t met Sarah and Chris until their wedding day, the moment we met them, their love for each other was evident, and we were so honored to be part of their day.

Sarah and Chris did a great job of making their wedding so personal. Their ceremony was so touching and incorporated guest participation as well as many ceremony traditions like a unity candle. They even hung a very special family cross on the arbor.  Inside at the reception, the décor matched perfect with their navy color palate, and the personalized bottles on the table were a special touch.

The hall was full of love and laughter that night. The dance floor was packed, and everyone had a great time! Congratulations Sarah and Chris, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
