Valerie and Dustin originally wanted to do a destination wedding. They both LOVE the beach and they have gorgeous engagement pictures, taken on the beach in Florida. But the more they thought about it, Dustin really wanted his grandparents to be able to attend the wedding. And observing the excitement on his grandparents’ faces at the wedding, we think Valerie and Dustin made the right decision.
Valerie is any only daughter, and from the minute you walked into the Phillip’s house you could tell just how excited her mom was for Valerie’s wedding. The dining room tables were set with color-coordinated table runners and place settings to match the colors of the wedding. Valerie and Dustin’s engagement pictures were spread all throughout the house, along with other wedding and beach trinkets.
Dustin and Valerie’s wedding was our first chance to film at the Piazza in the Village. It’s always nice when everything is right at one place, and your guests don’t have to hop in cars. The Piazza had appetizers out almost as soon as Valerie and Dustin said ‘I Do’. Valerie’s mom helped with designing much of the decor for the reception and it looked amazing.
