This lush green property features unmatched natural ambiance making it a perfect location to host weddings with vibrant decor and bustling natural scenes. Maryanne looked graceful as she slipped into her creamy white guipure lace bridal gown with a scoop neckline that hugged her right, looking drop-dead gorgeous. The long trumpet and flowy bridal dress, with a clean V neck and empire waist, along with vivid net paneling and the single-tier wedding veil that ran down all the way to the sweeping laces of the gown, complemented and dashed her with sheer chicness. Her hair was twisted and folded into a neat side-parted ballerina bun, and cleanly pinned curls adorned her pretty face. The makeup was on point with her smokey eyes and long mascara dapped eyelashes flattering her pretty face, along with a dark shade of maroon lipstick ornamenting and making her look like a doll. The simple yet elegant dangling earrings and crystal pendant accentuated her overall minimalist makeup and were a spot-on classic bridal style. Her bridal bouquet with the gorgeous leafy pastel-colored roses tied together with a blue ribbon spruced up the entire look and her light golden strappy wedding sandals perfectly accessorized her absolute chic outlook.
The groom looked dashing and sophisticated flaring up with a timeless black and white shirt combination teamed with an elegant two-button formal suit with black knot labels. Juan decided to display a classic black-tie wedding look wearing his shiny black Calvin Klein groom shoes, the neatly tucked suspenders, a suave black Emporio Armani watch, and a chic satin black bow that completed his absolute debonair groom look. His neatly back brushed hair and his flawless smile were the main highlights of his modish groom outlook.
Maryanne's bridesmaid gang rocked their look by orchestrating in long flowing blue dresses and aesthetic pastel rose bouquets, with minimalistic jewelry adorning them and making them look perfect. The snazzy groomsmen blazed a combination of white shirts and powder-blue ties, and elegant black shoes coupled with dark navy blue formal suits. Blending into the elegant aesthetics of floral decorations in the entire wedding, the groom and his groomsmen looked dapper with classic rose boutonnieres, in perfect synchronization with the bride and the bridesmaids' bouquets.
