Lindsey + Caroline

June 17th, 2023

An elevated garden party wedding

We can’t imagine a better couple to feature during Pride Month than Lindsey and Caroline. They celebrated their love with us on a warm June Saturday. Their wedding felt like an elevated garden party with their 150 closest family and friends. Lindsey and Caroline shared an intimate and emotional first look in Queen Mary, one of our lodging suites covered from ceiling to floor with delicate floral wallpaper and curtains.

Their union was made official down at our 90-foot Reflection Pool, where their guests watched as they professed their love on a grand scale. Guests then headed up to our idyllic European Cobblestone Court for a picturesque cocktail hour. Lindsey and Caroline wanted to keep their wedding menu familiar but full of flavor. During cocktail hour, our team passed around Fried Green Tomatoes, Compressed Watermelon bites, Creole Crab Cakes, and Twice-Baked Potatoes. Their dinner stations were filled with an Heirloom Tomato Salad, Truffle Mac + Cheese, Shrimp + Grits, and other comforting southern dishes to ensure their guests were well-fed.

The color palette was painted with spring pastels, which juxtaposed our Gothic ballroom quite perfectly. Moss, loose blooms, and greenery trailed down the tables, with mauve candles offering an enchanting glow. Dover Hall is proud to honor love, acceptance, and diversity throughout June and beyond. At Dover Hall, we recognize that Love is Love!
