Congratulations Austin and Jacqueline

This wedding, with the colors of wine and petal pink, was very elegant.  The bridal party’s dresses were wine, while they carried beautiful bouquets of wine and petal flowers.  The groomsmen wore grey suits with wine colored ties and petal boutonnieres.  The tables had floor-length, blush satin linens, and every other chiavari chair had the same color tie, held in place with rhinestone accent.  Each place setting had a gold charger, topped with an ivory napkin.  The centerpieces alternated between three styles: three gold mercury glass candle holders with flower accents, tall vases with large petal pink and wine arrangements, and antique lanterns with a candle inside.  All the centerpieces had gold mercury glass votive candle holders with candles surrounding them, and each centerpiece was on a round mirror.  Soft pink uplights highlighted the walls and columns in the room.  The color theme of the wedding was perfect for this elegant venue.

When it came time for the cake cutting, there was a half-and-half, four tiered, stacked cake for both Jacqueline and Austin.  Jacqueline’s side was all ivory, with elegant ivory designs on it.  Austin’s side was an ode to Star Wars.  The top tier was decorated to look like BB8.  The next tier looked like the night sky, with two light sabers and two fighter planes.  The next tier down was silver, and had Yoda on it.  The bottom tier looked like brown fur, for Wookie.  The cake was awesome!  For guests who don’t like cake, there were also cookies, decorated to look like tuxedoes and bridal gowns.

One amazing fact about this sweet couple:  they were boyfriend and girlfriend in seventh grade!  Years later, they reconnected, and now they’re married.  For a unique guest book, the Newlyweds had a large wooden board with their names and wedding date in the middle.  Guests signed the board with a white marker.  What a great keepsake to hang in your home after your wedding!  After a fun evening, the night came to a close when the newlyweds ran through an arch of sparklers, climbed into a restored white 1966 Princess and headed off to their new life.  Congratulations Austin and Jacqueline!
