Congratulations Mike and Steph

This Wedding Reception was held in a venue overlooking a marina, so the blue color for the day was perfect. The tables had blue tablecloths with white overlays and centerpieces of candles with blue rocks. The cake matched as well, with its three stacked white tiers, each featuring a different design. The bottom of each had a blue ribbon around it and fresh blue hydrangeas adorned the top.

This was a crowd that loved to dance and be interactive, and it showed. During dinner, a group of guests stood up together and did some type of chant/cheer which was from a group they belonged to with Steph. During the First Dance, many of the men in the room stood up and sang along at one point during the song. That was unexpected and great! Later in the evening, a bunch of guys made a pyramid on the dance floor, with Mike in the middle and Steph on the top. It was hilarious!! Seeing a beautiful bride on top of a human pyramid is one of the most awesome things we’ve ever seen at a wedding.

It was a fun evening of dancing and words of advice from the two longest married couples in the room who were both married 44 years. How’s that for inspiration? When the night came to a close, the Newlyweds said farewell to their guests and headed off to their relaxing beach Honeymoon. Congratulations Mike and Steph!

Congratulations Brant and Alison

This was a really cool Wedding Reception! The theme was 1960’s vintage glam and the colors were navy blue, teal and green. The venue was an old movie theater built in the 1920’s and besides having the large movie screen it has wood floors and brick walls. There was even an old movie playing on the screen during the dance portion of the Reception. Alison and her Bridal Party had retro-styled up-dos and Alison wore an elegant satin vintage wedding gown. Add in the hydrangea centerpieces with peacock feathers and everything was perfect.

The guests love the food with a Cuban flair, including a roast pig, and enjoyed the white Bride’s cake with lemon pineapple filling. The Groom’s chocolate cake was the topper to the night. There were plenty of other details that were unique and fun. The cake topper had little flags with Mr. and Mrs. on them with a little wooden penguin Bride and Groom beneath. The guest book consisted of Jenga tiles and each guest signed one, so Brant and Alison will remember them when they play the game later. The Newlyweds even had their names on the marquee on the front of the gallery, which was awesome for pictures and their sparkler exit. Congratulations Brant and Alison!!
