Leigh + Mitchell

January 14th, 2023

Leigh and Mitchell brought Dover Hall to life amid winter, creating an atmosphere with its gothic aesthetic, rich jewel tones, and vibrant energy—all captured by Santa Ana Weddings and The Starlight Collective. The bridesmaids carried long, swaying floral bouquets, each of them dressed in gowns rich in color. The couple exchanged their vows in the Grand Ballroom, where the fireplace mantel was draped with florals in shades of orange, yellow, pink, and purple arranged by The Bearded Florist. Mallory Rood and Leigh, the bride, both talented wedding planners at All The Dainty Details, went above and beyond to bring Leigh and Mitchell’s Dover Hall Winter wedding to life.

Tea lights hung from floral arrangements on rectangular tables, while candelabra centerpieces, placed on navy blue silk tablecloths, added to the overall gothic ambiance of the night. The couple had two wedding cakes for their guests to enjoy, courtesy of Maliha CreationsLeigh's cake stayed true to the theme of the night, with amethyst candy crystals and gold-flaked edges, while Mitchell paid homage to his favorite sports team, the Florida Gators. As the evening drew to a close, Leigh and Mitchell stole a private moment for a final dance, cherishing the memories they had created together throughout the night.
