HILLARY + DEREK SMITH | A WOODLAND WEDDING | MILL CREEK PARK

HILLARY + DEREK SMITH | A WOODLAND WEDDING | MILL CREEK PARK

Hillary Garland, a Social Media Strategist at Cafaro Company and fashion blogger at The Garment Theory, married Derek Smith, a Banker at Huntington Bank, on March 4th, 2017 at St. James Meeting House in the Boardman park. Following the ceremony was a reception for one hundred of their friends and family at Pioneer Pavilion in the Millcreek Park.  The couple then departed for a honeymoon in the Bahamas.

See below for a closer look at their beautiful wedding.

Gift Exchange:  Hillary received a diamond and gold tennis bracelet from Ashcroft & Oak from Derek.  The bride gifted the groom with a watch.

What they wore: The bride wore Allure from Jacqueline's Bridal in Poland, Ohio.  The groom wore a Murano suit from Dillard's.

How did your wedding style compliment you as a couple? "Our woodland style wedding was completely us. Everything was very simple and natural which is how it should be."

   

 

What was your best memory from the day? "Our best memory of the day was the time we had during our first look. It was so intimate and special."

What was the overall feel of your wedding? "Our wedding reception was in the woods where we spend a lot of time. We did a muted tone feel (dark greens, light blues, silver, gold, and brown tones) to complement the overall feel of the reception location. We had two floors each including a burning fireplace, smores bar, hot cider, and different types of breads for dessert (zucchini, lemon, and banana bread)."
