Congratulations Brandon and Carolyn

This fun-loving couple was great to work with – and so were all their guests!  Everyone was dancing and having fun all night long.  I think we had as much fun as they did!  To start, the ceremony was outside in the rooftop gardens.  To match their colors of crimson, cream, and charcoal, there were crimson floral kissing balls lining the aisle and a beautiful arch with floral accents.  The ceremony was unique, as the officiant told the story of how Carolyn and Brandon met and then spoke about special events leading up to the wedding date.  The newlyweds also had a ring warming, where their wedding rings were passed around for the guests’ blessings and good wishes. 

After the cocktail hour, the reception followed in a ballroom.  The tables had floor-length cloths and the centerpieces had crimson floral kissing balls sitting on gold vases.  The cake had four, ivory stacked tiers, all accented by a swag of edible cream and crimson flowers running down the front. 

As I mentioned, this was a fun crowd.  From the first song to the last, they were dancing and singing along.  At one point, there was a spontaneous conga line!  The fun continued to the end when everyone enjoyed the last dance before lining up in the hallway for the exit.  The good times for Carolyn and Brandon continued to the exit, when two members of the wedding party pulled and pushed them down the hallway on a luggage cart and off to their hotel room.  The guests were cracking up and loved it!  As the newlyweds rolled down the hallway, guests rang jingle bells, as a nod to the Christmas season.  It was a perfect wedding day.  Congratulations Brandon and Carolyn!
