Since ancient Roman times, throwing rice over happy brides and grooms has been tradition. But some traditions are meant to be broken. Modern couples have wisely updated the farewell experience — meaning no more shaking rice out of your hair for weeks to come.
Regardless the tradition — new or old — nothing rivals the excitement of sending off a newly married couple into their future together.
Today we blow bubbles, light sparklers, wave college fanfare, and view spectacular fireworks as limousines, trolleys, vintage automobiles and helicopters whisk beautiful couples away.
Only the most Fantastic Send-Offs happen here. The Laurel Loves how every couple uniquely bids their guests adieu. Here are a few that still have us speechless — and yes, you can land a helicopter at The Laurel.
Regardless how you leave The Laurel — whether you walk, run, ride or fly — we wish every couple the very best. May your new life together be as fantastic as your send-off.
