Congratulations Blair, Class of 2012

This party was in honor of Blair’s graduation from Friendswood High School. She is, well, was, on her high school drill team, and we performed at their annual Winter Ball back in January. We knew this pool party would be fun because we had so much fun with Blair and her friends a few months back. This party was awesome: dancing on the patio, dancing in the pool, 8 fully-clothed people being thrown in the pool, singing along, everyone having a blast the whole time! Thanks for choosing us to be a part of your milestone celebration.

Congratulations Blair and best wishes on your future endeavors!

Congratulations Logan and Monica

This was a pretty fuchsia and silver Wedding Reception. The tables had white sparkle overlays and the chairs had silver satin covers with fuchsia satin ties. We had seven fuchsia uplights throughout the room to pull it all together. The theme of the wedding was travel, so each table was named after a location where Monica and Logan had visited, and the centerpiece for each was unique to the location as well.

Monica wore the most gorgeous off white gown with a lace overlay. It had an elegant vintage feel to it. To top that, she had a great fascinator in her hair, with feathers and a net veil that went over her eyes. The Groom’s cake was awesome because it was a two foot high R2D2. How cool! They even ‘cut’ it with a light sabe

The dancing with this group was a lot of fun. They sang along, they danced, they jumped, they made up some dance to 500 Miles that had guys on one side of the dance floor and the ladies on the          other side, they threw their arms in the air, they waved them like they just don’t care (lol), they did the wave, they did a Conga line…... They just had a blast! They even danced through the Bouquet and Garter. What a fun, fun night!

Congratulations to Logan and Monica. I hope you had as much fun as we did!

Congratulations Greg and Michelle

What a perfect day for this summery Ceremony and Reception. The colors for the day were aqua blue, peach, and silver. It was so pretty! The tables had floor-length pin-tuck linens, with silver chargers and aqua satin napkins. The chairs had ivory satin covers with aqua ties. The centerpieces had tall vases with cream and peach flowers and tall curly willow. We had amber uplights around the room to give it an elegant, candle-lit glow.

Michelle was gorgeous in her strapless gown. It had rows and rows of soft ruffles on the bottom. She carried a pretty bouquet of ivory and peach flowers. Her Bridesmaids wore aqua knee-length gowns and carried peach bouquets. Greg wore the perfect soft grey summer tux. The aqua vest and white tie made it perfect. His guys wore the same tuxes with aqua colored ties.

All the little touches made this Reception so awesome, from the candy buffet, to the fun photo booth, to the mad-libs on the back of the Ceremony program, to the Mr. and Mrs. signs hanging on the back of Greg and Michelle’s chairs. Michelle hand made the elegant menu cards, which had cream card stock on a peach background, accented with bling. The cakes were also perfect for the wedding. Michelle’s cake had three, off-white stacked tiers with elegant embellishments and their initials on the top tier. Greg’s chocolate cake had the OU logo on top.

This crowd was so much fun! They danced from the first song to the last. And they sang, and jumped, and they had a blast. There were all kinds of dances, from the Robot to the Jump Rope, to everything else you can think of. It was hilarious and awesome!

After the Last Dance, Michelle and Greg exited through a shower of bubbles and headed off to their Costa Rican Honeymoon. Congratulations!

Congratulations Conrad and Laurie

What a gorgeous Reception! This one took place at an Italian Restaurant on The Strand, which has beautiful d├ęcor. The colors for the day were peacock blue, charcoal, and silver. They were so pretty for this sunny spring day. The tables had sheer sparkle turquoise cloths with satin edges. In the center of each were vases of bright flowers with floating candles. To finish off the look, we had blue uplights accenting the room.

Laurie wore a beautiful off-white gown with a sweetheart neckline and heavily beaded bodice. The full skirt had layers upon layers of ruffles. It was gorgeous! Laurie’s bouquet was a full bouquet of bright flowers accented with peacock feathers and turquoise hand-tied stems. Her Bridesmaids wore peacock colored gowns with charcoal sashes. Conrad was handsome in a traditional black cutaway tux with white shirt and tie.

Conrad and Laurie had a very dramatic entrance: they were dropped off at the door by a vintage Rolls Royce. As they entered, a bagpiper played behind them. Everyone loved it! The Newlyweds then went on to their First Dance, and a seated dinner followed. The toasts came next, starting with a traditional Irish toast given by Laurie and Conrad to their guests, and the guests answered in turn. There was also a special Irish coin toast. Then we moved on to the Cake Cutting. The cake consisted of assorted cupcakes on a stand, with a small top tier accented with their last initial. There were four different flavors of cakes to choose from, and guests loved it!

The dance floor was open until it was time for the Bouquet and Garter. Since there weren’t many single women or men, we opened up the Bouquet and Garter tosses for all women and men in the room. The lucky catcher was to receive years of continued happiness. Following that, the guests danced until the exit. Conrad and Laurie ran through a shower of bubbles while bells rang out, and they made a dramatic exit in the vintage car. Congratulations to you both!!

Congratulations Joey and Colleen

What a fun couple and what a great day! This wedding was in Galveston, with an outdoor Ceremony and indoor Reception. The colors for the day were white, fuchsia, and turquoise. They were perfect for this beach-side wedding. The tables had white tablecloths, with alternating fuchsia and turquoise runners. The centerpieces were so cute – tin pails filled with sand and bottles, and the bottles had mini glowing LED lights inside. Sticking out of each centerpiece was a little chalkboard sign with the table number written on it. Another great touch was the escort card set table. There were small sand boxes holding tiny tin pails filled with custom made M&Ms. Each pail had a little sign that indicated the table assignments. The whole theme was summery, bright, and fun, and it was just perfect.

Colleen wore an elegant, ruched, strapless gown, while her bridesmaids wore turquoise strapless gowns, with her Maid of Honor in fuchsia. Joey was handsome in his all white tuxedo. The flowers were an assortment of bright colors, all tied with turquoise satin ribbons.

After the cocktail hour and dinner, we moved onto the toast and cake cutting. Colleen’s cake had three, stacked, white tiers, each decorated with black scroll designs or polka dots. There was a turquoise band around the bottom of each and stargazer lilies making up the topper. Joey’s cake was a surprise from Colleen, and it featured a replica of his black motorcycle. The First Dance followed, and it was such fun! They started out with a slow song, and then it mixed into Sweet Caroline. Joey revealed a Boston Red Sox t-shirt under his tux, and I threw Red Sox jersey to Colleen, which she wore for the rest of the dance. The guests, many of them from Boston, loved it!

Once the dancing was underway, it was a crowded floor from the first song to the last. Colleen told me her group loved to dance and she was right. We had a blast! Country and Pop/Hip Hop were the guaranteed floor-fillers for this fun crowd. The Bouquet and Garter came later, and then it was more dancing until the end. At one point, the staff came out with sliders and mini milkshakes for guests. That was great! Finally, the last dance was over and Joey and Colleen made their exit and drove off in a limousine. Congratulations to you both and enjoy your Honeymoon in Panama!!

Congratulations Brent and Julianna

This Reception was so beautiful! Deep blue pin-tuck floor-length linens, Chivari chairs with blue seat pads and chair ties, gold chargers, blue napkins with bling napkin rings, alternating high/low centerpieces with an assortment of gorgeous pink flowers with the tall centerpieces featuring long clear jewels hanging down, candles around the base of each centerpiece, small gold boxes with cake balls at place setting, a dramatic blue card box embellished with fuchsia ribbons and bling, our amber uplights highlighting the room, and a elegant custom GOBO we projected on the dance floor. Wow!! Dramatic elegance was the word at this Reception.

Julianna, who has the most beautiful smile, was stunning in her white strapless gown. It had just the right amount of bling accenting the empire waistline and she was gorgeous. Her Bridal Party wore floor-length blue gowns. Julianna carried a full, all white bouquet while her Bridal Party carried pink bouquets. Brent was in a black tux with white vest and tie while his Groomsmen wore blue vests and ties.

Julianna’s white cake was gorgeous. It had five stacked tiers, each with alternating white accents. The topper consisted of fuchsia and pink roses, which cascaded down the front of the whole cake. Brent’s cake was incredible: it had two stacked chocolate tiers. The awesome part was the accents: an edible mini Target shopping cart made of fondant, and the Target bulls eye. It was so cool!

The bouquet toss was so funny! Two of the ladies grabbed it at the same time, there was a bit of a competition to hold on to it, and one of the ladies ended up on the floor. It was all in good fun and nobody got hurt, but that video should be on the internet somewhere. Hilarious!

After lots and lots of non-stop dancing, and this crowd loved to dance, the Reception came to a close. Brent and Julianna walked through a shower of pink rose petals and drove away in a vintage Rolls Royce. Congratulations!!
