Dinner was served beneath a clear tent with transparent teal fabric draped from the ceiling, allowing guests to see the twinkling lights on the trees above. For a twist on chandeliers, wooden sticks were shaped into balls and hung overhead, with candles inside.

Even though the weather was beautiful, the wedding took place close to the beach, so Courtney and Andrew set out blankets for guests to take in case they got chilly when the sun went down.

Andrew loves when Courtney’s hair is swept back in a side part, so for their wedding day she wore it just that way -- curled, half up, half down with a braid on the side. For a personal touch, she added flowers picked from her father and stepmother’s garden.
