Samantha and Kyle’s lovely wedding day began at the iconic St. Anthony Hotel. While Kyle and his groomsmen spent the morning on the golf course, Samantha and her gals pampered themselves with hair and makeup services by the talented Jax Studio. There were celebratory toasts all around wishing the new couple well on their wedding day.
For the grand occasion, Samantha was surprised with sentimental gifts, such as family heirloom jewelry from both her and Kyle’s family as well as a treasured bible for the ceremony.
Samantha chose a classic ivory, blush, and green color palette to complement the St. Anthony’s signature Draper Green. Reiley + Rose Floral and Design created a modern and lush garden aesthetic, accompanied by an ocean of candlelight.
The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower boasted its old world charm for the ceremony, which was incidentally built in 1929; ten years after the St. Anthony Hotel first opened its doors.
After the ceremony, the couple and their guests retreated back to the St. Anthony for cocktail hour in Peacock Alley, which was followed by a dinner reception and dancing in Anacacho Ballroom. After toasts and the couple’s first dance, Cap City band kept the dance floor filled the entire evening.
The couple shared their last dance alone in an empty ballroom to savor each remaining second of their special evening, all while imagining the joy and happiness that lies ahead of them.
