Congratulations Colin and Julia

This wedding reception brought us to a gorgeous third floor historic ballroom in Galveston where we’ve never played.  We loved the exposed brick walls of the room and views over The Strand.  The colors for this wedding were green with accents of purple and they were reflected in the centerpieces, which consisted of assorted colored wine bottles with one bottle in the center holding white and purple flowers. 

Julia’s cake had three white stacked tiers with edible seashells accenting the tiers and making up the topper.  Colin’s cake was in the shape of blue Hawaiian shirt with orange palm trees and Houston Astros designs.  It was cool!  This couple opted to not do a Bouquet or Garter and instead did an Anniversary Dance.  The longest married couple in the room had been married 55 years, and Julia and Colin presented them with a beautiful bouquet.

When the night came to a close, the guests enjoyed the Last Dance before the Newlyweds bid them all farewell and headed off to their new life as a married couple.  Congratulations Colin and Julia!

Congratulations Codi and Christina

This wedding reception with the colors of blush, gold and ivory was so elegant. The tables had ivory cloths with gold chargers and ivory napkins.  The chairs had ivory covers with blush satin ties.  The centerpieces alternated between tall vases with ivory and blush floral arrangements or ivory lanterns with candles.  To give the room a warm, candlelight glow, we had amber Uplights along one wall.  For the final touch, we had a GOBO monogram projected on the wall by the wedding cake.

The wedding cake perfectly complemented the elegant theme of the day.  It had four ivory tiers with blush rose accents.  The topper was nestled in more roses.  It was so pretty!  Finally after a fun night of dancing, the reception came to a close.  The Newlyweds ran though confetti, climbed into a horse drawn carriage and headed off to their new life as a married couple.  Congratulations Codi and Christina!
