Congratulations Alistair and Alexia

This wedding brought us to a beautiful two-story white southern plantation that is beautiful inside and out.  The ceremony took place outside at a gazebo with white draping across the back.  Luckily, the rain held off enough for us to not have to move the ceremony inside.  The wedding colors were navy and dusty rose, so Alistair and his groomsmen navy tuxes with rose bow ties.  The bridal party wore floor-length dusty rose dresses.  The flowers were all in shades of cream and dusty rose with lots of greenery.

The reception was so elegant!  The table assignments were on cards pinned to a large world map.  Each table’s name was one of the locations on the map.  The locations were important part of the couple’s life: where they met, where they got engaged, etc.  The dinner tables all had ivory floor-length cloths.  The centerpieces consisted of five vases with pillar candles, with greenery entwined among them.  Smaller votive candles surrounded the greenery.  Each place setting had a gold charger and navy napkin, and a custom menu card was tucked in the napkin along with greenery.  The venue has a beautiful staircase and it was accented by greenery and cream and dusty flowers.  The staircase gave Alistair and Alexia a beautiful entrance into the reception.

In lieu of a traditional guestbook, there was a large round frame with the Alexia and Alistair’s last initial and wedding date on it.  The guests signed small wood hearts that went into the frame.  There was something I’ve never seen before: a wedding pinata, shaped like a llama.  The guests wrote notes on small pieces of paper that they then dropped into the top of the pinata.  On their first anniversary, Alistair and Alexia will break open the notes and read them.  I loved that!

This couple had a fun cake that was a bit out of the norm.  They had one small traditional round cake for cutting, and it was surrounded by mini bundt cakes in assorted flavors.  The guests loved those!  When it came to dancing, there were fun light up foam glow sticks for the guests to play with: they were really cool!  When the night came to an end, the newlyweds were showered with bio-degradable snow before they drove off.  Congratulations Alistair and Alexia!
