Their celebration continued back at home with a dinner for two. The dining room was transformed with beautiful flower arrangements, bursting swags of greenery, and white candles.

Even though it was just the two of them, the wedding day of Gina and Sebastian was memorable, classic, and sentimental. It’s not the number of guests that make the wedding; it’s experiencing the feelings and creating the memories for which you've dreamed that make the plans, small or large, worthwhile.
