Please welcome Raquel and Courtney Jones. This beautiful and lively couple were wed on August 16, 2014 at Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center located on the campus of the University of Maryland College Park.
Raquel and Courtney selected my favorite color combination – varying shades of purple, champagne and silver. All who know me, know of my secret obsession withe the color purple. lol We added candlelight and bling to each tablescape to give the reception a glow. Her flowers consisted of calla lillies, hydrangea, roses and orchids. Raquel wore a beautiful mermaid styled dress with a dramatic bottom. She was stunning! The bridesmaids each wore a strapless champagne colored dress. Courtney and the groomsmen all wore black tuxedos.
Thank you Memories of Bliss for these stunning photographs that captured the love and joy of this beautiful day.
