Breezy Outdoor Wedding Celebration at Mount La Crosse
Wedding: June 2, 2018
Ceremony & reception: Mount La Crosse
Honeymoon: Maui and Kauai
When Clare Mannion and Brett Garrison dreamed about their wedding day, they had a particular theme in mind: an English garden party with vintage touches. Rather than opt for the barn option popular for weddings like this, the couple, who met in law school in St. Louis and now live in Washington, D.C., worked with their wedding planner to bring their romantic theme to life in a tented space in the great outdoors. When the big day arrived, the couple was dismayed that Mother Nature threatened to ruin their plans with rain. Happily, the showers held off, and Clare and Brett enjoyed a beautiful day surrounded by family and friends. Sweet surprises punctuated the whimsical evening, which included late-night s’mores and a paper moon photo booth. “The setting in the tent with the candles and fairy lights was simply magical,” says Clare.
