Jeff Hetrick and Mark Knaggs tied the knot on September 17, 2016, in an outdoor ceremony at the Woodcreek Clubhouse. The ceremony was on the deck in front of a brick fireplace. The reception was indoors at the clubhouse.
Jeff and Mark went with a black and white motif with accents of purple and silver for the décor and florals. Clear glass cylinder vases with white calla lilies and black river rocks were set on the mantle of the fireplace. White calla lilies were the primary bloom in the seating table centerpieces and other arrangements, accented with green and white hydrangeas, white orchids and roses, purple iris, and tropical leaves. Both Jeff and Mark wore white calla lily boutonnieres with touches of silver.
