A Franciscan Garden Fairy Tale

On a warm August evening, at Franciscan Gardens, Danielle Horton and Scott Ferguson promised each other ‘forever’ in front of their families and friends.

On August 26, Danielle floated down the aisle in a stunning a-line backless gown, with a ruffled tulle skirt, and beautiful lace-detailed veil. The groomsmen wore dark three-piece suits, with soft blue ties and pocket squares, with Scott just offsetting them in a charcoal three-piece suit. The bridesmaids wore various light grey gowns. The flowers were all beautiful – light and muted, with many roses, surrounding every aspect of ceremony. 

Danielle and Scott shared a beautiful first dance, and everyone enjoyed a buffet meal from 24 Carrots Catering. Danielle and her father shared a choreographed dance, which put all the guests in the perfect mood to head inside to finish off their night with dancing to the band, and enjoying a table of different flavored donuts for dessert. 

It was the perfect way to say, “I do” and celebrate everything that goes along with it.
