Groene & Dudley Wedding

We are so excited to finally share Grace & Gabe’s wedding because it was absolutely charming! Grace & Gabe embraced downtown Hampton and all that it has to offer and had their ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in three different locations. Of course, it all began at the HPO where the wedding party got ready. Grace & Gabe shared their sweet first look on our front steps. We just adored Grace’s dainty, beautiful shoes and love for tulips!Their wedding party joined in and Stephanie Erffmeyer of Gray Door Photography captured some more stunning images. Grace & Gabe decided to exchange vows at First Presbyterian Church of Hampton, just a few minutes from the HPO. Just like us, First Presbyterian Church has beautiful white walls, a high ceiling, and plenty of bright light.  The next stop for these wedding guests was a real treat – the Hampton Carousel. The Hampton Carousel is a blast from the past and one of only 70 antique carousels that exists in the United States. Preserved & restored to its original glory, this 1920s masterpiece was a hit for this couple’s cocktail hour! Guests enjoyed fresh popcorn, funnel cakes, and cotton candy specialty drinks to go with the carousel theme – yum!  Grace & Gabe brought in vintage inspired furniture and rented this charming French Industrial Cart from Big Top Entertainment. The HPO was brought to life with farm tables, tulips, greenery, candles, and wine bottles – we can’t express how much we loved this set up!  The wedding party entered into the reception down our grand staircase leading into first dances and exuberant toasts! Grace & Gabe invited caricature artists to capture couples throughout the evening. And what’s a dance floor without a good conga line? The bride & groom still managed to share some intimate moments on the dance floor. A sparkler exit ended this dreamy, happy couples night. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Dudley!
