Neely Burch & Robert Morandi

Neely and Robert were married before 38 guests in the backyard of the bride’s childhood home. The bride donned a dress by Amlul, and her father walked her down the aisle. She also carried a bouquet of hydrangeas, roses, and sweet pear, which she forgot in the chaotic moments leading up to the service, but luckily her little sister delivered them midway through the ceremony. Neely’s little puppy, who was tugging on the Reverend’s robe, and the peacocks that floated around the yard, kept guests laughing throughout. After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed a reception with dinner and cake by 12th Street Catering, and watched the newlyweds share their first dance to “Something’s Gotta Give,” by Sammy Davis, Jr. Neely and Robert traveled to California for their honeymoon, where they road-tripped from Los Angeles, through Santa Barbara and Carmel, and up to Napa Valley.
