Wedding at The Maxwell
Elizabeth and Graham were married – and quite happily – on May 7, 2022. There was spring rain and plenty of it, but also a jovial crowd of beloved guests, so these two dove in and relished every minute of it.
Elizabeth was a knockout bride and her bridesmaids, donned in a rich, royal blue, were lovely beside her. Her sweet father and mother teared up when they saw her, as did – honestly – everyone else.
After a first look with her parents, Elizabeth and Matt shared their first look as well.
During the vows, Elizabeth and Graham had a special unity glass ceremony where the couple poured different colored glass beads into a bottle. This bottle was sent off to be hand-blown and made into a Christmas ornament. It was such a cool idea and a nice moment during the ceremony itself.
If you aren’t familiar with the bourbon ritual, you should check it out. A buried bottle of bourbon at the site of your wedding helps to ward off rain and while THAT did not work out, the couple still dug it up and shared drinks with their wedding party.
And boy was there an after-party, otherwise known as a reception. Loads of dancing, sparkles, cake, laughter and fun followed the beautiful ceremony and The Maxwell delivered. In fact, we enjoyed collaborating with all of their vendors.
We can now officially wish them a happy belated first anniversary! Everyone at Premier hopes that you have decades of happiness.
