Congratulations Joey and Iris

This beautiful spring day was perfect for an outdoor ceremony followed by an indoor reception.  The colors for this wedding were navy and lavender and they were carried out in a variety of ways.  The bridesmaid’s dresses were navy and they all carried pretty bouquets of lavender and cream.  The reception tables had white linens with lavender lace runners topped by centerpieces of lavender and cream flowers.   To give the reception a candlelight glow, we had amber Uplights around the room. 

The wedding cake was a bit different from usual, as it was cake balls displayed on platters.  There was one small traditional cake for Joey and Iris to cut, but the guests were then served the cake balls with ice cream.  Who doesn’t love ice cream?  There were a few things at this wedding reception I’ve never seen: some of the liquor bottles were personalized with the newlywed’s names.   For a passed appetizer, there were mini peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  They were a hit!

After an evening of fun, the night came to an end with the newlyweds saying farewell to their guests.   Congratulations Joey and Iris!

Congratulations Andrew and Katie

This reception with the colors of white and tiffany blue was so pretty!  The tables had white cloths with tiffany blue organza runners and white napkins.  The chairs had white satin covers with tiffany blue organza sashes.  For centerpieces, the tables had tall vases holding bunches of baby’s breath.  Tall branches with lights stuck out of the top of each centerpiece.  To give the room a candlelight glow, we had amber Uplights along the wall of windows.

Katie’s cake was perfect for the wedding colors.  It had four stacked white tiers, each accented with white designs and a tiffany blue ribbon around the bottom.  One of the tiers had the words, “I do” written on it in tiffany blue.  The cake was also accented with hand-made gum paste flowers.  It was so elegant!  We loved Andrew’s cake, as it reflected his career.  He is a pilot for a large airline, so his cake had blue skies, white puffy clouds, and a plane flying through the clouds.  It was awesome!

There were other touches at the wedding that I really liked.  There was a traditional guest book, but there was also a bible next to it.  The guests highlighted a verse in the bible and signed their names next to it.  The favor boxes were so cute: they were adorable little birdhouses filled with candy. 

After an evening of friends, family and fun, the night came to a close with the Last Dance.  The newlyweds ran through a shower of bubbles and headed off to their new life together.  Congratulations Andrew and Katie, and enjoy your honeymoon cruise!

Congratulations Adam and Racheal

This wedding day, accented with colors of blue, was perfect for a venue near the ocean.  The dinner tables had white cloths with blue satin runners, and each table was topped by an elegant flowers.  Racheal’s three-tiered cake matched the colors, as it had blue ombre roses on the bottom tier and white tiers with white accents above it.  The cake topper had a groom dipping the bride.  Adam’s chocolate cake showed us what must be his hobby, as it had a monster truck running over a car while it raced around a track.

This couple had lots of cute accents for their wedding day.  They had a candy buffet done in shades of blue, personalized blue napkins, a bridal party in blue dresses, and groomsmen in blue ties.  There were also plenty of signs that guided guests through the day, from the sign that welcomed guests, to the sign on the guest book table, to the sign announcing the time of the sparkler exit.    I really liked their guest book, as it was a large frame in the shape of Texas, made out of wood and glass.  The guests signed a heart and dropped it into the frame.  Racheal and Adam can later hang it in their home. 

When it came time for their exit, the newlyweds ran through a tunnel of sparklers, climbed into a horse-drawn carriage, and headed off to their new life together.  Congratulations Adam and Racheal!
