Carly & Scott

June 19, 2010 at the bride's family home in Hudson at the Cedarhurst Mansion in Cottage Grove

Married in a majestic grove of trees at the bride’s family home, some might say Carly Syfko and Scott Krueger finally tied the knot, since they began their relationship as 15-year-old high school sweethearts. After the beautiful outdoor ceremony, the reception switched venues to the stately Cedarhurst Mansion. A perfect blend of al fresco elegance, the celebration included touches of the bride’s favorite color, eggplant, ivory and subtle hints of gold. After years of traveling separately and together, their paths were finally united, to the strains of intimate acoustic guitar among hundreds of friends and family. What better way to begin—and carry on—this sentimental journey?
