Congratulations Fred and Kathleen

Last night we provided DJ services for the most beautiful and dramatic reception! The colors were black and white, with hot pink accents. And everything was so gorgeous! The tables had floor length black tablecloths with black napkins. The chair covers were black satin with silver embroidered toppers, with hot pink satin chair ties on alternating chairs. The flowers were amazing! The bouquets were beautiful, with hot pink flowers, and pink rhinestones accenting the ribbon wrapped handles. The Bride’s bouquet was one of the most dazzling I’ve ever seen, with two rhinestone-encrusted butterfly accents ‘sitting’ atop the flowers. The centerpieces alternated high/low. The flowers were a combination of bright colors and included flowers such as roses, birds of paradise, and other flowers I don’t even know the names of. Each arrangement had beads, rhinestones, and long, hot pink feathers. To top it off, each arrangement was on a base that had small lights inside, which uplighted the centerpiece. Square votive candles surrounded each centerpiece. The whole look was pulled together with pink uplights that we provided. They lined the wall behind the sweetheart and cake tables. The uplights really made the whole room look amazing! The whole reception was elegant and glamorous.

The three-tired cake matched as well, with its white tiers accented with black swirls, Square votives were lined all around the cake’s silver plateau. Even the toasting glasses matched: Swarovski crystal glasses featuring tiny crystal gems in the stem of the glasses. They were beautiful! The ceremony programs were a perfect complement. They had dark gray/black covers tied with a hot pink ribbon. The Bride and Groom had favors at each place setting that (I hear) tasted delicious, and looked beautiful as well. The favor boxes had the couple’s monogram on the top, surrounded by rhinestones. Nestled within box was a truffle for each guest.

Now to the Bride and Groom. What a nice couple! Kathleen looked beautiful in her corset back dress with beaded bodice. She is so sweet, with her giggly, always happy personality. Although we didn’t meet Fred until the wedding day, we can say he was quite handsome in his tux, and a very nice guy. It was obvious how loved they are by their families and friends, and how much they love each other. The Queen Bridesmaid made a touching slideshow to be shown during the reception, and she and the Best Man shared some personal words about the Bride and Groom during the toast.

I must mention the Father/Daughter Dance. It was fantastic! Kathleen and her father danced to Ain’t Too Proud to Beg, and had a fun time with it. They had a routine they danced to (apparently one that Kathleen danced to when she was on the drill team in high school), and at one point Kathleen’s dad was on his knees singing to her. After watching Kathleen’s dad interact with the guests, we could see that he is a really fun guy. And he was part of the best Father/Daughter Dance we’ve ever seen! As an added touch to the dancing, Kathleen put together a pink and black basket labeled “Dancing Shoes”, which held pink, black, and white flip flops in assorted sizes. The women loved putting them on for dancing.

After an elegant yet very fun night, the reception came to a close. Fred and Kathleen ran though sparklers to exit in Fred’s decorated car. Congratulations to you both, and have fun in Las Vegas on your Honeymoon!
