Congratulations Glen and Alyssa


This large wedding was so pretty and so much fun! The colors were navy, blush pink and purple, which were reflected in the flowers and Wedding Party attire. The tables had white cloths with three styles of centerpieces, from low vases with floating candles surrounded by flowers, to taller vases with submerged flowers to tall vases holding tall branches with hanging votive candles. The chairs had white covers with navy sashes.

Alyssa’s cake was so beautiful! It had four ivory stacked tiers with delicate edible flowers and beautiful frosting ‘ribbons’ around the bottom of each tier. The cake topper was a little Mickey and Minnie Mouse Bride and Groom. Glen’s chocolate cake with marshmallow topping was also a big hit.

Shortly after opening the dance floor, we had the Grand March. It was one of the longest ones yet – it lasted 15 minutes! It ended in a circle which went right into the Anniversary Dance. The longest married couple had been married 53 years! We partied from then until the end, stopping only for the Bouquet and Garter.

This crowd had such fun, dancing to everything and having a great time! Our Photobooth was also a hit, with tons of funny pictures taken. Everyone danced the night away until the Reception came to a close with the Last Dance. Glen and Alyssa made their exit through bubbles and left for their new life together. Congratulations to the Newlyweds!

Congratulations Daniel and Jenny

This pretty First Day of Summer Reception featured the color of navy, with pink and ivory accents.  The tables had pretty blue satin overlays over ivory floor-length table cloths, surrounded by chairs with blue organza sashes.  The centerpieces were pink and ivory floral arrangements around floating candles or tall candelabras.  To give the room a candlelight glow, we had Amber Uplights along one wall. 

After the First Dance and a delicious dinner, we moved on to the Toasts and Cake Cutting.  Jenny’s elegant cake had four white stacked tiers of different shapes.  Each tier had different designs with rhinestone accents.  The bottom of each tier had a soft pink ribbon.  Daniel’s marble cake looked like his Police Officer badge.  For the favors, they had gorgeously decorated cookies in the shapes of wedding gowns.  I was shocked to hear that family members made them, as I thought they were done by a professional bakery!

We opened the dance floor with the Anniversary Dance, and the longest married couple dancing had been married 57 years!  Dancing continued until the end, with the Money Dance, Bouquet and Garter being mixed in.  After the Last Dance, the Newlyweds took off in their car to their new life as husband and wife.  Congratulations Daniel and Jenny!

Congratulations Will and Emalie

This nautical themed Reception was perfect for the water-loving future boat-owning couple.  The colors were blue and white, with splashes of red and yellow.  The tables had blue cloths with red napkins and were surrounded by white chairs.  The centerpieces consisted of red and yellow floral arrangements or vases with blue aquarium rocks, seashells and candles, with rope ties around them.  Each was surrounded by seashells.  There were other neat touches that matched the theme: red bar napkins with anchors, custom beer cups with their Jimmy Buffet wedding motto (Shells sink, dreams float, life’s good on our boat) and two styles of coozies that matched the nautical theme.  There was also a Green Bay Packers coozie, which matched the Groom’s cake.  There were red, white and blue bead necklaces on the sign in table for guests to wear.  The sweetheart table matched with its seashell garland and the couple’s initials in blue.  The initials were cool, they were vintage book ends.  We had blue uplights highlighting the stage and front of the room, to tie it all together with a blue ocean/water feel.

Emalie’s nautical themed white cake had four round stacked tiers.  Alternating tiers had either red anchor-print ribbon or nautical rope around the bottom.  The entire cake was accented with seashells.  Will’s cake had a large Green Bay Packers logo on top, which matched his coozies.

After the special dances, a Money Dance, the Bouquet and Garter, a great night with family and friends and fun dancing including Swiss music, the Newlyweds bid farewell and left for their new life together. Congratulations Will and Emalie!

Congratulations Greg and Tiffany

This wedding day perfectly fit the style of the fun-loving and laid back Bride and Groom. With a beach theme for the day, the colors of Mediterranean Blue and Silver were just right. The tables had floor-length blue pin tuck linens surrounded by chairs with silver covers and blue sashes. The centerpieces pulled in the beach theme as well, with candles, seashells and sand. Our Mediterranean blue uplights tied it all together beautifully.  

After the Ceremony, in which Tiffany secretly walked down the aisle barefoot due to her shoes bothering her, the guests moved over the Reception, where they enjoyed a nice meal and toasts before the cake cutting.  Tiffany’s white cake had three stacked tiers with blue trim, edible seashells and sugar “sand” around the bottom.  The topper was two little Adirondack beach chairs.  Too cute!!  Greg’s cake was Mustang Red with the Mustang logo on top, to match his new Mustang Boss 302.  Their matching favors were blue cozies with two Adirondack beach chairs and their wedding date on them, and little bags of chocolates shaped like seashells.   Greg and Tiffany also had a basket with blue and white papers for guests to write notes to the Newlyweds.  Some of them were hilarious!! 

A Money Dance and the Bouquet and Garter came later, and then we went back to dancing until the end.  We had great time with these fun families, but the night had to come to a close.  The Newlyweds ran though bubbles and took off to their new life together.  Congratulations Greg and Tiffany!!

Congratulations Clay and Corie

What a pretty wedding on a gorgeous spring day! The colors were coral and beige and they were tied together beautifully. The Bridal Party wore dresses in shades of coral and no two were alike, as they each got to choose her own. The guys wore white shirts with the sleeves rolled up, khaki pants, beige vests and coral ties. They all looked great! The ballroom was decorated just right as well. The tables had ivory floor-length tablecloths and were surrounded by chivari chairs. The centerpieces consisted of pretty spring flowers in ivory, pale pink and coral. To really pull the whole look together, we had coral uplights along the walls, adding a beautiful glow of color to the ballroom.

Corie’s beautiful cake had three white tiers decorated in a delicate floral design. It was accented with pretty pink peonies. Clay’s cake was awesome: it was an outdoor scene with a river, fish, deer, a hunter and a man fishing, a fishing net, a reel, shotgun shells, and more. It was so perfect for him. For a cool touch for this Texas Country Music loving couple, they had personalized coozies at the bar.

The Money Dance and Bouquet and Garter came later, and the Bouquet Toss was so funny as many of the single ladies kicked off their shoes and went for it! Everyone had fun until the night came to an end. The Newlyweds enjoyed their last dance, ran though a shower of bubbles and bid farewell to their guests. Congratulations Clay and Corie!

Congratulations Ron and Lilia

This Ceremony and Reception were so elegant with a color scheme of ivory and purple. The tables had floor length ivory cloths and the ivory chair covers were tied with deep purple satin sashes. The centerpieces consisted of floating candles in purple water, surrounded by purple petals. There was a gorgeous ivory crushed satin drape covering one wall of the room and matching ivory swags draping across the ceiling.

Lilia’s cake was so pretty! It had round stacked tiers, with a beautiful fondant swag running down the front surrounded by edible flowers.  It had an elegant double heart topper. Ron’s cake looked like the box that holds their favorite wine, which has a special place in their hearts.

This wedding was so nice in that the Bride and Groom were able to enjoy spending time with each guest, which is so important. After the Bouquet and Garter and lots of fun with family and friends, the night came to a close. The Newlyweds got into their white stretch limousine and headed off to their new life as a married couple. Congratulations Ron and Lilia!

Congratulations Chris and Brittany

This Reception with shades of gold and cream was absolutely beautiful. I have never seen this venue look so amazing. The tables had ivory floor-length cloths with ivory damask toppers and the chairs had ivory covers with taupe ties. The place settings had gold chargers topped with ivory napkins in ivory napkin rings. Even the china matched, as it was ivory with a gold rim. The high/low centerpieces alternated between tall candelabras or vases with flowers, and all were surrounded by candles. We had amber Uplights accenting the room and it was all gorgeous.

Brittany’s ivory cake was so pretty! It had three round stacked tiers, each with delicate pale pink floral piped accents. To match the d├ęcor, it was on a gold stand. Chris’ three tiered stacked cake, a nod to his profession, had an oil derrick spouting ‘oil’ out of the top. We had an Anniversary Dance and the longest married couple dancing was married 52 years, how inspirational!

When the dance floor was open, the party was ON! This group was so much fun! They danced to everything from Country to Pop to 80’s to Hip Hop to Interactive Songs to everything else. They were hilarious and had such a great time. It was fun just watching!

When the night came to a close, the Newlyweds climbed into a chauffeur-driven Town Car and headed off to their new live as a married couple. Congratulations Chris and Brittany!
