Matthew and Merry’s ceremony took place in a secluded area of the estate, with the bride walking down a winding path that led to a beautiful outdoor altar. The couple exchanged vows as their friends and family looked on, but their dog stole the show as he came running down the aisle with the rings.
After the ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the estate’s expansive patio They sipped on champagne and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres while taking in the stunning views.
