Everything was decorated beautifully. From the ceremony to the reception, there were many twinkling lights accenting everything. Adding an element of romance, it went perfectly with the petals and flowers that adorned the tables. Smiling all the while and always finding time to share some sort of affection, Ann & Chris definitely captured the essence of love.
