Congratulations Nicholas and Brianna

This Ceremony and Reception brought us to The Lyceum in Galveston, which we love. Not only is the room gorgeous, but the owner Cynthia is wonderful as well. The colors for this wedding day were black, white, and red. The tables had floor-length white tablecloths with red overlays. The centerpieces consisted of vases with red and white flowers. There were customized boxes of white candies for favors.

Brianna wore a gorgeous fitted to the knees, white, strapless gown. It had ruching on the skirt, an embellished brooch at the waist, and a dramatic bustle at the bottom. Underneath were some tall red high-heeled shoes. Brianna wore a veil for the Ceremony and a feathered accent in the back of her hair for the Reception. Her Bridesmaids wore red floor-length gowns with a gathered bodice and strap across one shoulder. They all carried beautiful full bouquets of assorted red and white flowers. Nicholas looked great in his black suit, shirt, and vest. His Groomsmen all wore black suits as well, but with red shirts. They all wore white boutonnieres.

Following the Ceremony, dinner, the special dances, a bit of open dancing, and toasts, it was time for the cake cutting. The Bride’s cake had three stacked, white layers. There were no embellishments except for a few red and white flowers on each layer, and a silver double hearts topper. It was very elegant. The Groom’s cake was chocolate with dark chocolate drizzled on top, with chocolate covered strawberries. After the cake cutting, it was back to the dancing.

The Money Dance and Bouquet and Garter came later in the evening, after lots of fun dancing – and this group loved to dance to everything, especially line dances. I always say that if the Bride and Groom love to dance, the guests will also, and this night proved it! They were on the dance floor all night long! Finally the night came to a close, the last dance ended, and the Newlyweds ran through sparklers to their car. Congratulations Nicholas and Brianna and enjoy your Honeymoon cruise!

Another Great Time With Mainland Bank

This is the second year we’ve done the Preferred Customer Appreciation Banquet with the bank, and it’s always such a great time. You can tell they really do appreciate their customers! The banquet started with a cocktail hour, followed by a wonderful dinner. Then, an extremely talented magician did a show. After the show, we started playing while the casino tables opened up. The ‘gambling’ continued until the end of the evening, when door prizes given to some very lucky customers. What a great night! Thanks again Mainland Bank and we hope to see you next year.

Congratulations Wes and Eileen

What a great date for a wedding: 1-1-11. Who will ever forget that? The color for this wedding was navy, with accents of yellow and orange. It was very pretty! The tables had floor length white table cloths with orange floral centerpieces surrounded by candles. The chairs had white chair covers with navy ties.

Eileen was so pretty in her slim-fit, strapless gown. It had beaded accents, a halter neckline, and a sash waist. She carried a bouquet of assorted white flowers. Her Bridal Party wore navy knee-length gowns with halter necklines and carried orange and yellow bouquets. Wes wore a black tux with white vest, tie, and boutonniere. His Groomsmen wore similar attire but with grey vests and ties and yellow boutonnieres.

After dinner, it was time for the toasts. The Best Man cracked everyone up when he said that he brought a list of all the times Wes never followed his advice, then pulled out a list that was around 15 pages long. Then it was cake cutting time. The Bride’s cake was so pretty. It had four, white, stacked tiers. Each tier had elegant white scroll accents and a black ribbon at the bottom. There were a few orange flowers accenting each layer. The cake topper was the initials of “W” and “E” for Wes and Eileen. We joked that it was good to put their initials together in that order, so they were “WE” rather than “EW”. LOL Wes’ chocolate cake had the Texas Tech insigne on the top. Then we had the First Dance and Father/Daughter Dance followed by the Anniversary Dance. The longest married couple in the room had been married for 62 years, and they were Wes’ grandparents. What a great inspiration! When asked to give advice to the Newlyweds, the husband made everyone laugh when he said “Make love a lot”. His wife followed with the calmer advice of, “Be nice to each other.”

Following the Bouquet and Garter, and more dancing time, the night came to a close. The guests made sure to take their favors, which were fortune cookies in little Chinese take out boxes, with customized chopsticks tied to the top. Wes and Eileen ran through a shower of bubbles and headed off to their new life and relaxing Hill Country Honeymoon. Congratulations!!

Congratulations Brandon and Dana

What better way to celebrate a marriage than on New Year’s Eve? This fun reception took place down on The Strand, a great place for a party. As you can tell by the pictures, the Brandon in this wedding is the famous baseball player Brandon Backe. He and Dana are a great couple together, very nice, and such fun!

The colors for this wedding were black, red, and white, and they were perfect for a glamorous New Year’s Eve affair! The tables had black table cloths, and the centerpieces were tall vases filled with red sunken roses and red floating candles. They were surrounded by more red candles and red rose petals. Each guest received a custom champagne glass, with Brandon and Dana’s names and red hearts, for a favor. Very appropriate for the midnight toast!

Dana’s gown was gorgeous: white strapless, fitted to the hips, beaded embellishments, with an elegant train that bustled. Her hair was in low back bun, with red roses tucked in it. She wore amazing red and white rhinestone jewelry and red satin shoes. Very chic! To coordinate the look, Dana carried a bouquet of hand tied red roses with crystal accents. The Bridesmaids also had a very dramatic look for this wedding. They wore black, fitted, strapless, knee-length gowns, with their hair up as well. They wore pearl necklaces with red roses on one side, and sexy red high heels. The Flower Girls complemented the Bridesmaids with their red dresses. Brandon was handsome in his black tux, red shirt and tie, and white vest. His Groomsmen wore black as well, but with white shirts and red ties. The while group looked great!

After dinner, we were on to the cake cutting. The cake had four stacked, heart –shaped, white tiers, each with tiny black dot accents. There were red roses cascading down one side and a black “B” on the top. After the cake cutting, it was time for the special dances. Dana danced with her mother, and then Brandon danced with his. The Bouquet toss and Garter Removal and Toss followed, then party time!

This group was ready to dance from the very first song! Country, Oldies, Eighties, Hip Hop, Line Dances, it was all good! And we must say that Dana and Brandon are great dancers as well, and that always encourages the guests to join in. It was so funny when they ended up having a ‘dance off’ with each of them trying to outdo the other. Dana went down on the splits, and then Brandon followed! It was hilarious and everyone was cracking up. The party continued until midnight, when Brandon and Dana thanked their guests for coming, there were a few toasts, and we welcomed in the New Year with a countdown. The party continued a bit longer until the night came to a close. What a great way to spend New Years Eve!

Congratulations Brandon and Dana, and enjoy your Honeymoon in Costa Rica!
