Congratulations Sam and Rachel

This was such a fun wedding with a great group of people. The color for the day was navy, with accents of pink and yellow. The white tablecloths were topped with navy napkins and alternating high/low centerpieces of assorted blue, pink and yellow flowers. The chair covers had navy sashes to pull it together. For an elegant accent, there was a piano player for the cocktail hour and dinner, and we had four amber Uplights giving the room a beautiful candlelight glow.

After Rachel and Sam performed the Sand Ceremony with blue and white sand, they moved on to the cake cutting. Rachel’s cake was gorgeous with its four stacked tiers with navy ribbons at the bottom of each. Each tier had different designs and the cake was topped with fresh flowers. Sam’s cake was awesome, as it had a fisherman in a boat catching a fish. The fish had a little veil on it. Too cute!

Sam proposed to Rachel in France, so there was a bit of a French theme running through the day. There was an Eiffel Tower on the sign-in table and the cake table. The couple added some French themed props to our photo booth, and there were drink coasters with a French theme given out as favors. Besides enjoying the delicious and cake, the guests had a blast in our photo booth. Some of the photos were hilarious!!

After a wonderful night of fun, Rachel and Sam enjoyed their last dance and headed off in their limo. Congratulations Sam and Rachel!!

Congratulations Joseph and Joanna

This spring wedding featured pretty colors of soft greens, peaches, yellows, corals and lavenders. They were perfect for the outdoor Ceremony under a huge oak tree surrounded by flowers and the indoor Reception. After a beautiful Ceremony which included a reading of a fun quote by Dr. Seuss, the guests moved over to the outdoor cocktail area where they were greeted by a bar, appetizers and sno cones. How fun! Following cocktails, guests moved inside for a nice seated meal and enjoyed the little pastel colored boxes of nuts at their place settings. The centerpieces were the perfect romantic touch for this sunny day: they had flowers of peach, pink, coral, off-white and yellow.

The toasts followed and then we moved on to the cake cutting. Joanna’s cake had three round tiers with a simple whipped design and gorgeous open peonies on each. Joseph’s cake featured a logo for his field of practice. Then it was party time! Between the dancing, photo booth and sno cones, this was a fun Reception! We paused for the bouquet and garter and then went right back to the fun until the end. When the night came to a close the Newlyweds shared a last private dance while the guests were outside lighting their sparklers. They then walked out to their waiting guests and headed off to their new life together. Congratulations Joseph and Joanna!

Congratulations Kirk and Patti

This Ceremony and Reception were intimate, beautiful, elegant, classic, romantic, and a lot of fun. The colors for the day were peach and cream, which were perfect for the timeless feel. We placed amber uplights around the Reception room so it had a beautiful golden glow. With a guest list under fifty people, it was a wonderful day in which every guest felt a part. After the Ceremony, the guests moved next door for the Reception. After a delicious seated meal, we moved on to the toast and cake cutting. The two-tiered white cake had the word “love” written all over it and the topper consisted of two white lovebirds snuggling with each other.

Due to the Galveston location, some unique details were tied into the wedding. The sign-in table had a large antique map of Galveston. The guest book was a coffee table style book on the history of Galveston, and the guests signed the pages. The favor cards were old Galveston post cards which had the guest’s name and table number on them. The vintage looking table numbers were in gold frames.

After a great night of family and fun, the newlyweds ran through bubbles while some guests rang bells. They climbed aboard a horse-drawn carriage and headed off down the seawall. Congratulations Kirk and Patti!

Congratulations Andrew and Darlene

This Ceremony and Reception had a soft, romantic feel which was carried out perfectly, with the ivory and gold colors and rose and hydrangea flowers. We had amber uplights around the room which created a romantic glow.  After the Ceremony, which incorporated the Filipino traditions of the veil, cord and coins, we moved on to the Reception. The guests loved the dual buffets: one with American food and one with Filipino food. The toast and cake cutting followed the meal. The Bride’s cake had three stacked tiers with floral accents on each, with roses making up the topper. The Groom’s cake was a table of sweets and desserts – yum!

Once the dancing had started, it was fun from the first song to the last! This crowd loved to dance and it showed. There was a Conga line and a dance-off, with lots of craziness, laughing and fun all night long. It was a great time! They stopped a bit for the Money Dance and Bouquet and Garter, but it was quickly back to the fun.

After a night of non-stop dancing, the evening finally came to a close. The Newlyweds ran through a shower of rose petals and headed off to their Honeymoon. Congratulations Darlene and Andrew!

Congratulations Richard and Michelle

This Ceremony and Reception took place at the Galveston Railroad Museum, and what a cool place! The Ceremony was outside in the gazebo, with palm trees lining the sides, a vintage locomotive in the background and a thick row of orange and red rose petals lining the aisle. Afterwards, guests went inside for the cocktail hour, where they were greeted by a fantastic guest book table with a card box covered in moss, pens for signing which looked like little wood logs and floral print cards for guests to fill out with predictions for the couple’s future.     

The colors for the day were red and orange and they were tied together beautifully. The tables had ivory floor-length cloths with orange/red satin runners and orange/red napkins. The centerpieces were low wood boxes filled with either grass or fresh flowers. Each was surrounded with red and orange petals and candles in amber votives. Each place setting had a small burlap favor bag with seeds to plant. This couple did a great job bringing in a natural, organic feel to the day. The cake was a perfect match with its two square, white tiers with small red and orange flowers atop a stand filled with cupcakes, all with red and flowers on them as well.

The trains outside the museum provided a special touch to the day. After the guests finished dinner, many of them went outside to check out the trains, which were open for viewing. Michelle and Richard got to take some amazing photos in and around the trains. One even had a “Just Married” sign on it, so they could stand on the caboose and wave goodbye to the guests.

After the bouquet and garter, the Newlyweds ran though a shower of red and orange rose petals and went off to their new life together. Congratulations Richard and Michelle!!
