Congratulations Josh and Kellie

 What a cool wedding for a fun-loving couple! The colors were black with turquoise/teal accents, and it was done really well. The tables had black table cloths with teal napkins and centerpieces of teal hydrangeas. The chairs had black satin covers with teal sashes. For unique favors, they had decorated Mardi Gras-type masks on the tables. Guests wore them and got to take them home. For the final touch to pull it all together, we had our amber Uplights around the room.  

After a traditional ceremony in which Josh’s Grandfather was the minister, we moved on to cocktail time and dinner. The toasts came next and then, the cake cutting. The cake really matched perfectly: it had four ‘leaning’ round tiers, alternating between teal and purple. The purple tiers had black curvy designs, and the teal tiers had black stripes. To top it off, the topper was the Bride and Groom from The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was so fun! To draw more attention to the fabulous cake, we had our cake table spots directed on it.

Dancing was a bit Country, a bit 80’s, a bit Hip Hop, plenty of line dances, and lots of fun. Especially the woman we named Grandma Dancing Machine! Finally after the Bouquet and Garter and more dancing, the Newlyweds ran though bubbles and headed off to their Honeymoon, while each guest loaded a watermelon in their car, to represent a fruitful marriage. Congratulations Josh and Kellie!

Congratulations Shadi and Lauren

Our beautiful amber Uplights
This Reception took place a month after Lauren and Shadi got married in Hawaii, so it was a great way for all their friends and family who were unable to go to Hawaii to share in the festivities. The room was very pretty, with gold floor-length table cloths, tall centerpieces with assorted bright flowers, and our amber uplights adding a beautiful golden glow.

After a dinner consisting of assorted food stations, we moved on to the special events. The toasts were followed by the cake cutting. Shadi’s chocolate Groom’s cake was a reflection of his obvious love for playing cards. It had realistic looking cards, edible chips, the whole thing. It was pretty cool! Following that there was a short video of Shadi and Lauren’s wedding. The guests loved being able to see their wedding day! The First Dance and Parent’s Dances came next, and then it was dance time.

After a lot of fun and dancing, occasional updates on the Texas Tech game, and the Bouquet and Garter (The lucky lady who caught the bouquet and the lucky guy who caught the garter are engaged and are getting married in 3 weeks!!) the night came to a close. Lauren and Shadi wished all their guests farewell and left to continue their happy life together. Congratulations Shadi and Lauren!
