Congratulations Matt and Lindsey

What a beautiful and fun wedding day! It started with a gorgeous Ceremony outside on the lawn, in front of the gazebo. Then, the guests moved inside the Grand Ballroom for the Reception. The colors for the day were teal/peacock blue and gray, and the ballroom was gorgeous. The tables had floor length grey linens and were surrounded by chairs with white satin covers and grey sashes. The tall centerpieces alternated between vases of blue hydrangea and birds of paradise, or crystal trees with blue hydrangea around the bottom.  We had 10 teal/peacock blue uplights lining the walls, and they tied in all the d├ęcor and made the room glow with the day’s color.

After dinner, we moved onto the cake cutting. Lindsey’s cake was a perfect match, with its three white, square, stacked tiers, each with peacock blue accents. Matt’s chocolate cake had the Porsche emblem. Is that a hint? LOL After that there was dancing until the end.

When it comes to dancing, this crowd was FUN! We saw some of them at a wedding back in June, so we already knew we’d have a great time, and they didn’t disappoint! There was non-stop craziness on the dance floor, and at one point 20+ members of one family did a special Gangnam Style dance for Lindsey and Matt. You can tell they rehearsed, because it was awesome. At the end, two guys danced out wearing horse head masks, and that just pushed it over the top! We’ve seen those two masks before as well; it was so funny seeing it again. The whole group was a blast. To add to the fun of the wedding, there was a photo booth as well as a candy buffet to keep guests entertained.

When the night came to and end. Lindsey and Matt ran through bubbles, got into a silver Bentley, and headed off to their new life. Congratulations Matt and Lindsey!

Congratulations Travis and Katie

Beautiful Ceremony

First Dance and Uplights

What a pretty afternoon Ceremony and Reception! The colors were ivory and guava (a deep coral color), and they looked beautiful in the room. The Ceremony area was accented by 4 towering floral arrangements in shades of ivory and guava, with the flowers matching the bouquets and boutonnieres. To tie all the colors together, we had guava uplights accenting the columns around the dance floor during the Reception.  

After a beautiful Ceremony, dinner, and special dances, we moved on to the cake cutting. Katie’s four-tiered white cake featured assorted elegant accents on each tier, with a pale ivory/coral fondant ribbon wrapped around one tier and cascading down the front. The ‘ribbon’ had a gorgeous vintage brooch on it. Travis’ chocolate cake was in the shape of a poker table and included cards and chips. Cool! A 10 minute slide show followed and then it was dance time! At the end of the Reception, Travis and Katie ran through a shower of bubbles and headed off to their new life together. Congratulations Katie and Travis!

Congratulations James and Melissa

Portal Cake!

Bubble Exit

What a pretty afternoon Wedding Reception! The colors were hunter green with ivory and fall accents. The centerpieces featured a variety of orange and fall colors and included flowers, pumpkins and pinecones. They looked great on the ivory table cloths and pulled in the theme nicely. Even their favors matched, as they were glass coasters with leaf imprints. To pull in the couples’ love of gaming, they named each table after different aspects of games, including Portal. For their love of sci-fi, they made their entrance to “Throne Room (End Titles)” from Star Wars.

The “cake” was a big hit! The top tier was the cube in the game Portal, and the toppers were little Portal figurines, Melissa’s with a veil and James’ with a bowtie and boutonniere. The rest of the “cake” was a variety of cupcakes frosted in white, with fall accents on them including acorns and leaves. We played the song “Still Alive” from Portal while they cut the cake. Perfect!

After the special dances, toasts, and the dollar dance, the afternoon came to a close. The Newlyweds ran through bubbles while we played “Star Trek the Next Generation Theme”, and headed off to their new life. Congratulations James and Melissa!

Limo Scavenger Hunt Fun

We had fun Friday night with members of Bay Oaks Country Club at their Limo Scavenger Hunt After Party.  They had teams going out with lists of things to photograph, and then they came back to find out who was the winner.  Keep in mind that they were welcome to bring their own alcohol in the limos, and we hear there were full coolers and jello shots.  Needless to say, they all arrived back at the club in very good spirits!  The winning team (congratulations Pink Ladies!) received the Silver Hubcap Trophy, which will go into the display case along with their team photo.  We’re looking forward to seeing you next year!
