Congratulations Morgan and Britney

This Reception had a more casual, springtime, beach feel, and it was perfect for this fun loving Bride and Groom. The color of the day was chocolate, with pretty ivory and pastel accents in the flowers. The tables had chocolate brown linens topped with four different centerpieces. The centerpieces were either tall with floral arrangements, short with floral arrangements, or bowls with seashells and candles. All the centerpieces were surrounded by candles. To tie in with the colors of the day as well as the venue, we had amber uplights around the room. It was so pretty!

After the meal, the Toasts and Cake Cutting, we moved on to the Special Dances. To start off the dancing, there was a June Anniversaries Dance, in which all couples married in June were invited to the dance floor. Halfway through, we opened up dancing to all the married couples in the room. And then, it was dance time for all. Britney and Morgan loved Country music, so this Reception was geared more towards Classic Country, Texas Country, and a few Top 40 songs thrown in. It was perfect for the Newlyweds and their guests!

After a bit of dancing, we stopped for the Bouquet and Garter, and then it was back to the dancing until the end. Morgan and Britney ran through a shower of bubbles and headed off to their new life together. Congratulations Britney and Morgan and enjoy your Alaskan honeymoon!

Congratulations Brenton and Megan

This was an elegant and fun Reception in Galveston. The colors were ivory with shades of purple. The tables had ivory pin tuck linens with gold chargers, with assorted centerpieces with purple flowers. There was a vintage theme running through the Reception, with bird cages for some of the centerpieces and two cute little wood cut out birds as the Bride’s cake topper. For a fun accent, the bar also featured root beer in bottles. Brenton had a field hockey cake that was really cool, too.

Megan wore a beautiful ivory strapless gown that was not only perfect for her, but perfect for the wedding. She had a flower fascinator in her hair that topped of her look. With Brenton in his suit, and the Bridal Party in their plum colored dresses, they all looked great.

After a lot of fun dancing, which included people jumping up and down, something that looked like the worm mixed with a wheelbarrow, someone crab crawling across the dance floor, we did the Bouquet and Garter. This group was a lot of fun, singing and dancing along to everything. At one point, Megan changed into a cute short white dress with her brown cowboy boots. After a lot more fun the night came to a close and the Newlyweds made their exit. Congratulations Megan and Brenton and enjoy your honeymoon in Jamaica!

Congratulations David and Emily

You know how you always hear about a sweet young couple getting married? Well, here they are! David and Emily were so nice, just like their guests. This family friendly and fun Reception was perfect for them. The colors were peacock blue and charcoal grey and they were tied in with the chair ties and M&M favors. The flowers in the Bridal Party’s bouquets and centerpieces were yellow, and yellow uplights in the room tied it in all together. Emily’s cake featured white and chocolate cupcakes with a small cake topper. David’s chocolate cake was the Aggie Bonfire, and it was awesome!

This group loved to dance: they literally danced from the first song to the last. They liked every kind of music from oldies to current to interactives to some Lebanese music. It’s always fun to see different cultural dances with everyone having a great time. Watching everyone dance to Apache was hysterical! There were times when almost every single person in the room was on the dance floor. This group really was a blast!

One cool touch to this Reception was the way they brought out soft pretzels and popcorn near the end of the night. You know that was a big hit! Finally, the last dance came, and David and Emily headed off to their new life together. Congratulations!!

Congratulations James and Miranda

 What a pretty summer afternoon Ceremony and Reception! You don’t see a lot of afternoon weddings, but this one showed why there should be more. It was beautiful! Shades of pink were the colors for the day and their accents were perfect for this historic ballroom. The Wedding Party matched perfectly as well, with soft pink dresses on the ladies and soft pink ties on the guys.

After the Ceremony, the sheers on the ballroom windows were opened, giving the guests a gorgeous view of palm trees and the beach. The tables had ivory linens with centerpieces of sand, seashells, and candles in low vases. Miranda’s cake was perfect as well: it had three ivory tiers with wave shaped accents, seashells, and “sand” at the bottom. Even the topper was made of shells. As a favor to the guests, there were decorated seashell-shaped cookies at each place setting. Miranda’s gown complimented the beachside theme as well: it was a fitted mermaid style with a soft train flowing behind it.

After a bit of cake smashing, the Bouquet and Garter, some fun dancing, and a great afternoon with wonderful family and friends, the Reception came to a close. Congratulations James and Miranda!

Congratulations Matt and Diana

This was a really fun and elegant Reception for a fun-loving couple. The linens were elegant: ivory and black pin-tuck. The chairs had black satin chair covers with ivory ties. The high/medium/low centerpieces consisted of three different styles, all with red roses and bling. Speaking of bling, Diana’s bouquet was beautiful! It was all ivory flowers, with bling accents. The stems were totally wrapped in bling. The cake matched as well, with four all white square tiers, each a bling band around the bottom. It had a few red roses cascading down the side, with the couple’s last initial on the top (covered in bling, of course). Diana’s white gown was beautiful, with amazing detail and a bling band around her waist.

The whole Reception was elegant, yet a lot of fun; the guests were ready to party before dinner even started! Our dance floor lighting helped add to the mood as the guests had fun to all kinds of great dance songs. Finally, the night came to a close and the Newlyweds got into their Escalade limo and headed off to their new life together. Congratulations Diana and Matt!!

Congratulations Robert and Leah

This was such a pretty, elegant Reception. The colors were black, ivory and gold. The tables had ivory cloths covered with sheer black embroidered toppers. The centerpieces had three tall gold candle holders with gold pillar candles inside, and they were surrounded by ivory rose petals. Leah’s ivory gown was gorgeous and perfect for her wedding! It was strapless and had amazing lace detailing with bling accents. It was part vintage, part modern, and very elegant.

After a nice, seated family-style meal, we moved on to the toast and cake cutting. The cake had three, ivory, round tiers, each with a different design and a gold band around the bottom. It was perfect for this elegant Reception. The parent’s dances followed, and it was dance time!

After a lot of fun dancing and the Bouquet and Garter, the night came to a close. Robert and Leah ran through a blizzard of confetti poppers and headed off to their new together. Congratulations Leah and Robert!
