Jasper and Christiana’s Rosecliff wedding was a romantic and elegant black tie affair. The couple chose Rosecliff as their venue because of it’s old world charm. Christiana grew up living around the world, spending most of her time in Paris. *swoon*. Not only is the mansion a gorgeous space to hold your wedding but they loved how the architecture of Rosecliff and the opulent mansions on Bellevue mimic much of the architecture in Paris.

The couple had their siblings and closest friends with them all day. Jasper’s boys from grade school and Christiana’s girls from her time studying in Paris. I loved the color palette of the girls dresses, a gradation of light to dark in blush tones. The flower girls dresses were princess like and unintentionally matched the color palette of Rosecliff perfectly.

The ceremony was held on the rolling back lawn facing the water at sunset. The soft pastel colors of the sky added a romantic mood. One of my favorite moment of the ceremony was when an Apache wedding blessing was read. It’s called the “Blessing of the Four Directions.” It was chosen to be read to honor Jasper’s Apache roots. The blessing ended with a beautiful passage; “May the sun bring you new happiness and warmth each day that you are awake; may the moon softly restore you as you dream each night when you sleep.”

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the menagerie off the back of the house, drinking champagne and the couples signature drinks; the Moscow Mule and the English Garden. The party started right away with an amazing entrance and opening dance. After speeches and a delicious dinner the couple headed over to “cut the cake”, in this instance a French Croquembouche. {Yum!} Bear Fight had the dance floor packed for the rest of the evening. Congratulations!!
