As the vibrant hues of late September foliage framed the scenic vistas of The Estate At River Run, Dembris and Jay embarked on a journey of love and commitment that culminated in a breathtaking wedding celebration. The Estate, renowned for its historic charm and timeless elegance, provided the perfect setting for a day filled with cherished moments and unforgettable memories.

Before the ceremony, Dembris and Jay shared an intimate first look beside the stately gold columns of the Marble Foyer. This moment, captured beautifully in photographs, radiated pure emotion and anticipation. The grandeur of the Marble Foyer, with its Waterford-styled Chandeliers and marble tile floor, highlighted the couple’s excitement and love for each other as they prepared to say “I do.”

The couple chose to utilize The Estate’s exquisite indoor spaces, beginning with their heartfelt ceremony in the Wedgewood Ballroom. Adorned with a large spiral staircase and intricate blue details inspired by European China, the ballroom was the ideal backdrop for their vows. The rich color scheme of burnt orange, navy blue, and beige brought a warm, autumnal glow to the room, perfectly complementing the season and adding a touch of vibrant elegance to the celebration.

Following the ceremony, guests transitioned to The Tuscan Ballroom for a lively and joyous reception. The ballroom’s inviting atmosphere, enhanced by the wedding’s fall color palette, set the stage for an evening of celebration. Friends and family gathered to toast the newlyweds, enjoy a delicious meal, and dance the night away in honor of Dembris and Jay. One of the most magical moments of the evening was the couple’s first dance. As they glided across the floor, a soft fog encircled them, creating a dreamlike scene that left guests in awe.

As the night drew to a close, Dembris and Jay shared a tender moment on the front steps of The Estate, captured in the gentle rain. This romantic finale, under the softly falling raindrops, encapsulated the beauty and emotion of their wedding day. Dembris and Jay’s late September wedding at The Estate At River Run was a celebration of love, elegance, and the stunning accents of autumn. The Estate’s indoor spaces provided the perfect backdrop for their special day, creating an atmosphere that was both intimate and grand. As they begin this new chapter in their lives, the memories of their magical wedding day will undoubtedly remain in their hearts forever.
