Lisa Park and Jeff Agase had a fantastic and fun destination wedding at Cedarwood on May 8. They are lawyers living in Chicago (Jeff a grad from UCLA and Lisa from Vanderbilt) so Music City USA was an ideal locale for their wedding celebration. We loved how Lisa and Jeff embraced a southern vibe for their wedding style, including Hatch Show Print invitations, Sweet Tea, Mason Jars and a little “Y’ALL” southern speak!
Fun details like Lisa and Jeff’s Wedding Mad Lib program fans, paper flower garlands, vintage quilt photo booth, “official beer passport” (encouraging guests to try the five speciality beers from their five cities of residence) and an amazing “sweets and treats” buffet kept guests engaged all night long. Their band “Loose Chain” did their part to keep the energy level up! Loved this wedding….. Jeff and Lisa’s wedding photographer Jessica Rai captured some wonderful images, and we are going to share them as they appeared on the Gray Photography Blog. Enjoy!
