 Congratulations Mark and Jennifer

The colors for this pretty Reception were black, silver, and lilac. With black and white damask tablecloths, white satin chair covers with lilac ties, and silver chargers, the room was very elegant. The high/low centerpieces alternated between tall vases with submerged calla lilies with floating candles, or low vases with submerged hydrangea with floating candles. Add in our 10 purple uplights around the room, and it was gorgeous!

After a delicious dinner to the sounds of a live mariachi band we moved on to the toasts and cake cutting. Jennifer’s white cake with lilac accents was perfect for their colors, and Mark’s chocolate cake in the shape of a piano was awesome: it had really incredible detail. Then, on to the party! After a bit of dancing we stopped for the Dollar Dance, and then went back to the fun. This group had so much that we went into overtime for an hour and a half!

Finally, after the bouquet and garter tosses, a long, fun night of dancing, the Newlweds danced the Last Dance and bid farewell to their guests. Congratulations Mark and Jennifer!!

Congratulations Michael and Joanna

This wedding day was a bit different from the norm for us, and we loved it. It was very traditional, from the outdoor Ceremony under the canopy of a huge oak tree, to the indoor seated Reception. The colors for this elegant wedding were plum and grey, so the Bridal Party wore knee-length plum dresses while the Groomsmen wore white shirts with grey vests and plum colored ties. Joanna was gorgeous in her off-white lace covered gown with satin sash. Her beautiful bouquet featured ivory flowers with lavender accents. The Ceremony had white wooden chairs, and the ones along the aisles had mason jars with ivory and plum flowers. Near the end of the ceremony, an a capella quartet performed for the new Husband and Wife.
  There was no dancing at the Reception, so the music included Jazz, Rat Pack, and other oldies. It was perfect for this traditional day. The centerpieces matched the feel as well, with alternating vintage lanterns, old fashioned candle chandeliers, and white bud vases with flowers. Michael and Joanna share a love of reading, so some of the centerpieces also had stacked books with candles on top. They had other vintage touches as well, including an old suitcase for cards, a wood ‘wall’ holding portraits of family members, and an old wooden box holding the programs. Every detail was perfect.

After dinner, the toasts, the cake cutting, and time to visit with family and friends, Joanna and Michael made their exit through sparklers and began their new life together. Congratulations to the Newlyweds and enjoy your Honeymoon!

Congratulations Jimmy and Rachel

What a beautiful sunny day for this waterside Ceremony and Reception. The colors for the day were black and white, with accents of turquoise and coral, and the theme was glam beach party. The chairs had white satin covers with black satin ties. The tables had white floor-length cloths with black pin-tuck overlays, topped with silver charges. The assorted centerpieces had white candles in sand with small vases of flowers around them, or tall vases with dried grass and lights. There were custom made chocolates in the shape of seashells and fish at the place settings. Each member of the Wedding Party was given a custom made, blue sparkling champagne glass.

Don't cake smash me!

Rachel’s cake was beautiful. It had four white, round tiers, each with a scattering of tiny, elegant, white, edible flowers. Two tiers had a beautiful white satin ribbon around the bottom, tied in a bow with a gorgeous brooch in the center. The cake was topped by the couple’s last initial. Jimmy’s chocolate cake had an anchor in the center with rope around it, all edible of course. Obviously he’s into the water, especially since he and Rachel ran through sparklers, onto a dock, and drove off in a boat!

One really funny part of this Reception was the First Dance. Halfway through the dance, Rachel stopped and yelled “Wait!” She and Jimmy then pulled out their cell phones and updated their status on Facebook as “married”. Rachel said, “Now, it’s official!” and then they continued on with their dance. So funny, and very appropriate since they reconnected on Facebook.

They wanted a great fun dance party, so our dance floor lighting added the ambiance they wanted. To top it off with the perfect touch, we had a custom monogram with their names and wedding date projected onto the dance floor, and it was gorgeous. What a great wedding day!  Congratulations Jimmy and Rachel, and enjoy Antigua!
