Congratulations Kyle and Maegan

This wedding reception with the colors of maroon, gold and ivory was very elegant.  The tables, which were a mixture of round and rectangular, all had ivory satin floor-length cloths.  Each table also had a gold sequin runner.  The tables were topped by gold chargers and ivory napkin with gold rings.  There were three styles of centerpieces: tall vases with large arrangements of pink and maroon flowers, low vases of pink and maroon flowers, and tall lanterns with small arrangements and candles around it.  Hanging behind the sweetheart and cake tables was a floor to ceiling drape with twinkle lights behind it.  It all came together beautifully!

Maegan’s four-tiered white, stacked cake was elegant in its simplicity.  It had nothing but tiny lines running around each tier, kind of ‘scratched’ into the buttercream.  The topper consisted of a gold initial of the couple’s last name.  Kyle’s red velvet cake was in honor of his college: it was white with the Texas A&M  
logo on top.

When the dance floor opened, this couple was ready for fun!  The guests got glow necklaces and glow sticks to add to the party atmosphere.  We did the Anniversary Dance and the longest married couple in the room had been married 58 years – wow!  The husband gave great advice to the Newlyweds: “always say yes.”  That comment got plenty of laughs! 

The favors consisted of maroon koozies with the couple’s names and wedding date on them.  Instead of a traditional guest book, this couple had a custom book made of their engagement photos and guests signed the pages. 

After a great evening of dancing and fun, and an impromptu conga line, the night came to a close with the Last Dance.  Then, the Newlyweds departed as guests waved sparklers over their heads.  The couple then got into a limo and headed off to their new life together.  Congratulations Kyle and Maegan!

Congratulations Allison and Rose

This Tuesday wedding was perfect for this sweet couple.  Their wedding colors were royal blue and Kelly green, and they were carried out in the linens and flowers.  The tables had ivory floor length cloths with blue and green runners.  The centerpieces consisted of antique white lanterns on mirrors surrounded by candles.  Allison, wearing an elegant royal blue dress, carried a bouquet of blue and white flowers.  To go with her Irish heritage, Rose wore a blue and green kilt with all of the accessories that go with it. 

After the Ceremony came dinner and dessert.  Instead of a traditional wedding cake, this couple opted for cheesecakes in different flavors.  Opting to forego other typical traditional elements of a Reception allowed Rose and Allison to have more time to dancing and visiting with family and friends, which is always nice to have.

After a wonderful evening of family and fun, and some Irish music, the Reception came to a close with the Last Dance.  The Newlyweds, instead of doing a formal exit, stayed to say farewell to their guests before they headed off to their new life together.  Congratulations Rose and Allison!

Congratulations Marcus and Kim

This wedding Reception, featuring the colors of royal blue and silver, was so pretty.  The tables had white floor length linens with silver pin tuck toppers.  The chairs had white satin covers with royal blue ties.  The high/low centerpieces alternated between three styles, all featuring white and blue hydrangeas and white roses.  Of course, each was surrounded by candles.  To add to the candlelight feel of the room, we had amber Uplights along the walls giving off a golden glow. 

Kim’s white cake was very elegant, with its three stacked tiers accented with blue and silver flowers.  There were swags draping around each tier and a custom cake topper with the couple’s last name.  Marcus’ strawberry cake had two stacked tiers, each dripping with chocolate ganache.  There were a few special touches at this Reception that we really liked.  The custom made favors were something we hadn’t seen before: they were artificial flower petals with Jordan almonds in the petals.  How they got the almonds inside the petals, I’ll never know, but they favors were very pretty.  There was also a cool ‘guest book.’  It was a large, two-layered wood and glass frame in the shape of Texas.  Guests signed their names on small wood hearts and then dropped them in the frame.  After the wedding, the couple will hang the framed hearts in their home.

After a great night of dancing and visiting with their guests, the night came to a close with the Last Dance.  Instead of doing a formal exit, the Newlyweds chose to stay and wish their guests farewell before leaving.  Congratulations Marcus and Kim!
