This amazing beach-themed wedding was perfect for such a fun-loving couple. Wherever they were, whatever they were doing, they were laughing. The color of dusty lavender was carried throughout the day, and was featured in all kinds of lavender and beach accents. The outdoor ceremony had guests waving lavender ribbon wands as the couple walked back down the aisle. While waiting for the ceremony to start, the guests sipped on lemon-infused water, while reading the program, which was printed on beach-themed paper. The four little flower girls were adorable, with their lavender floral head wreaths and the groomsmen were well dressed for the day, in khaki linen slacks and vests. I loved how the guys all wore lavender argyle socks!
Upon heading inside the ballroom, the guests were greeted with a large custom drawn timeline of Carol and Glenn’s relationship. I’ve never seen one done like that, and it was awesome! The beach and lavender accents continued throughout the reception. The tables had floor length ivory linens topped by lavender overlays. The high/low centerpieces alternated between tall vases of lavender and ivory hydrangea and white lanterns with candles. Each place setting featured silver chargers and custom lavender coasters. For favors, the guests were given small bags of chocolates in purple wrappers and custom lavender koozies. There was a basket of lavender flip flops near the dance floor, so the guests could dance the night away in comfort.
Carol’s three-tiered white wedding cake had white roses accenting the layers and a lavender topper that said, “God gave me you.” Glenn’s groom’s cake had blue and white Dallas Cowboys stars on it – so I imagine they’re his favorite team. For the cake cutting, the couple used a special plate with a wedding scene on it and forks with the words “bride” and “groom” stamped into them. Other accents found throughout this day included our bespoke GOBO monogram, which projected the couple’s names onto the dance floor, and our dance floor lighting, which helped add to the fun mood. This was perfect for Carol, who changed into pink Converse with a blinged-out toe. She was ready to party!
After a picture-perfect day, the evening came to an end with the newlyweds driving away in a horse drawn carriage. Congratulations Glenn and Carol!
