Congratulations Charlie and Helen

This wedding was held in a great location: The Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston.  Talk about having a unique wedding day!  The vintage planes  were moved out to the perimeter of the room and we had amber and white Uplights highlighting them.  All the festivities were held in the middle of the room amid the planes.  The Ceremony had an Uplit plane serving as the altar backdrop and it was so dramatic!  

After a delicious dinner, we moved onto the toasts and cake cutting.  The carrot cake had three stacked white tiers, all covered in icing rosettes.  The First Dance followed before the dance floor was opened for all.  Later, after sharing their Last Dance together, the Newlyweds bid farewell to their guests before heading off to their new life as a married couple.  Congratulations Charlie and Helen!

Congratulations Jose and Kailyn

I had the pleasure of being the Day of Wedding Coordinator for this sweet couple, whom I met after working Kailyn's mothers' wedding just a few months prior.  The Ceremony was beautiful, with the bridesmaids in gold sequined floor-length gowns carrying bouquets of red and white flowers and the groomsmen in black tuxes with red rose boutonnieres.  The Reception followed with guests enjoying a seated meal at tables with black tablecloths and alternating high/low centerpieces.  The favors were so cute, they were heart-shaped cookies decorated like little groom's tuxes or bride's wedding gowns.  The guests danced the night away before blowing bubbles as the Newlyweds made their exit in a bright red sports car.  Congratulations Jose and Kailyn!

Congratulations Matthew and Christiana

This was such a gorgeous Reception!  The theme for the wedding was Winter Wonderland, and with the colors of navy, silver and white, it was all carried out absolutely beautifully.  To start with, there was pipe and drape with silver satin drapes along the walls of the room.  Blue Uplights highlighted the drapes and gave the whole room a blue wintery glow.  To top that off, two GOBOs with snowflake designs shined on the ceiling of the ballroom.

 The tables had navy crinkle satin floor length linens and were surrounded by clear acrylic Chiavari chairs with white seat pads.  The centerpieces alternated between tall lit acrylic trees and lower clusters of vases.  The vases had a variety of accents in and on them:  some were wrapped in white lace, some were filled with artificial snow, some had silver and white Christmas balls in them and some had floating candles.  Each place setting had a white napkin with a favor sitting on top.  The favors consisted of white mugs with the couples’ initials on them and they were filled with hot chocolate mix.  There was also a hot chocolate bar opened up after dinner, and it featured hot chocolate with a variety of toppings. 

Christiana’s cake matched the colors and theme as well.  It had five white tiers with navy fondant ribbons accenting the bottom of each.  Beautiful silver brooches accented the front of each ribbon.  The topper was a heart intertwined with a musical note, which was perfect for this music-loving couple.  Speaking of music, these Newlyweds recorded their First Dance song for us to play: Matthew played the guitar while Christiana sang.  They were good!  Matthew’s cake matched his love for football, as it was decorated to look like a football field with a football sticking out of the top.  He carried the football theme through the garter toss when he tossed the garter (embroidered with the words “good catch” on it) wrapped around a football.  Christiana’s bouquet matched the wedding and her cake, as it was made up of white and navy flowers with beautiful brooches accenting it.

This wedding Reception was not only gorgeous, but fun!  The guests danced to every song, from the first to the last.  It was an all-out party!  But finally the night came to a close.  The Newlyweds shared a private last dance before running through lines of guests waving ribbon wands with jingle bells on them.  Congratulations Matthew and Christiana!
