When Haley + Chris began planning their wedding day, they wanted a fun, unique, fairy tale day. The Van Dusen Mansion’s elegant, historic vibe was the perfect match for their vision.
Haley’s stunning Pronovias gown was something right out of a storybook — the epic train nearly crossed an entire room and fit like a glove. The wedding party was decked out in a classy ensemble of burgundy and navy, with touches of blush pink.
The day began with hair and makeup in the mansion and then Haley and Chris shared an emotional first look in the bridal suite. The wedding party braved the cold outside for a few portraits and then it was time for the ceremony in the ballroom. After sealing their vows with a kiss, their smiles were a mile wide and they were showered with rose petals as they exited.
After the ceremony, the ballroom was flipped into a beautiful reception space as the guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the mansion. Haley changed out of her gown and into a fabulous reception dress before dinner. As the festivities kicked off, the catering by Mintahoe was perfection and the toasts were filled with both laughter and tears (the happy kind!).
But the part of the day that Haley and Chris were most excited about was the epic dance party! Some Shitty Cover Band rocked the carriage house and the dance floor was packed as guests danced the night away… exactly how Haley and Chris had imagined!
