Amanda and Evan’s Belleview Inn Wedding

This beautiful Belleview Inn wedding reflected Amanda and Evan! It was warm, comfortable, and filled with personal touches. Throughout the wedding, there were touches of green and Lilly of the Valley, and even Jojo made a few appearances.



Hey Ladies!

The ladies’ morning started with on-site hair and makeup services, the delivery of some favorite breakfast treats, fun photos, and the capture of some beautiful wedding details.



Evan and The Guys

This handsome group got dressed and took photos in the Belleview Inn’s historic bar area for some beautiful images.



While the wedding parties were getting ready, the couple arranged for some tours of the historic inn for their wedding guests.


What A Wonderful World!

With everyone dressed and ready, it was time for Amanda’s first look with her Father. We love unique first looks, especially when they bring Dad to tears.



But Wait, There’s More!

Next, it was time for Amanda and Evan’s first look. The Belleview Inn’s staircase made a beautiful backdrop. The photos that followed were incredible—Jojo even popped by for a visit and some pictures outside.

Falling In Love

The Belleview Inn’s porte-cochère was set for a beautiful outdoor wedding. White garden chairs created an aisle lined with baby’s breath and a crisp white fabric runner. At the top of the stairs, two large acrylic risers held beautiful floral arrangements.

With everyone in place, Amanda, escorted by her Father, made their entrance to “Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley.



The couple exchanged rings and wedding vows, surrounded by family and friends. Sealing their vows with a kiss (or two), making their exit to “Here Comes The Sun” by the Beatles.



Cocktails, Hors D’oeuvres and Personal Touches

While the newlyweds took time for some family photos, guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the verandah and in the inn’s lobby. Offerings included Signature Cocktails and delicious light bites accented by some fun personal touches.




This Will Be…

The Belleview Inn’s lawn was the perfect location for dinner and dancing. A clear-top tent was adorned with beautiful twinkle lights, fabric swags, and a black-and-white dance floor. Tables were draped with crisp white linens. The tables were also dressed with silver beaded charger plates, custom menu cards, beautiful floral arrangements, and floating candles.



The couple’s three-tiered white wedding cake, dressed in incredible sugar Lillies of the Valley, was outside on the verandah.

The evening kicked off with the newlywed’s grand entrance, taking to the dance floor for their first dance to “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green.



The party continued with parent dances, a welcome by the Father of the Bride, several touching toasts, and a delicious dinner.

Dinner began with a beautiful salad of Cucumber-Wrapped Spinach with Strawberries, Marcona Almonds, Aged Gouda, and Dark Balsamic Vinaigrette.

Following a blessing, guests were invited to several food stations, including Pasta Stations with Farfelle Scampi and Cavatappi Arrabbiata and Chef-Attended Stations with Carved Tenderloin of Beef and Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes.

The evening continued with a traditional cake cutting, bouquet toss, Viennese Dessert Station, some late-night snacks, a quick change by the bride, and everyone dancing the night away.
