Through the Lens - A Weekend Wedding Walkthrough

What is it like to spend a weekend at The Esmeralda, preparing for your dream?
Once the question is asked, and answered, pick the spot and start planning!
The weekend arrives, the friends and family arrive and the fun begins!
S'mores by the outdoor fireplace are a big hit, and a good cigar is always a good idea!
Dress rehearsals and pre-wedding pictures take the wedding party all over the area!
The day arrives - lots of preparation for a beautiful ceremony and reception!
The Bride prepares for the ceremony with the help of her friends!
And the guests are arriving.
Time to begin! 
The ceremony is finished, and now it's time to party!
And they're off to start their new life together! Congratulations!
