Congratulations Cody and Genevieve

This couple wanted a fun and Cinco de Mayo influenced day, and they got it!  To start, the ceremony was held in the venue’s outdoor chapel.  With tall beams and pew-style seating, it was beautiful.  For a memorable entrance, Genevieve and her bridal party arrived to the ceremony in a boat!  The groomsmen met the bridal party at the dock and escorted them to the altar.  The guys wore khakis and blue oxford shirts with yellow ties, and Cody was handsome in his blue suit and yellow tie.  The bridesmaids wore blue dresses and carried bright colored bouquets with yellow sunflowers.  During the water-side cocktail hour, guests enjoyed appetizers including chips with a queso fountain.

This wedding was filled with many details that personalized the day.  The path to the ceremony had buckets of water bottles wrapped in personalized labels.  The guests picked up blue fans with the ceremony program printed on them.  There were signs with the table assignments in the elevators and in the ballroom, to help guests find their seats.  At each place setting, there was a personalized drink coaster, with the couple’s names and wedding hashtag on it.  The area around the elevator was decorated, and there was a chafer of warm, moist washcloths in the restroom! 

The ballroom was decorated perfectly with the wedding colors.  Each table had a white tablecloth topped with a blue pin-tuck overlay.  Each had a centerpiece of bright flowers and yellow sunflowers.  The chairs had white satin chair covers with blue ties.  To give the room a golden, candelight glow, we had amber uplights lining the walls. 

The four-tiered, stacked wedding cake was perfect for this Cinco de Mayo wedding.  Each tier had Mexican-style designs running down the front.  To top that, the cake was surrounded with four satellite cakes, each a different flavor, and each having a different cake topper.  The guests loved the cakes!

We were told this wedding was going to be a lot of fun, with a lot of dancing, and they were right!  The dance floor was packed from the first song to the last.  Country, Pop, Oldies, it didn’t matter, the guests loved them all!  When the reception came to an end with the last dance, guests headed outside, lined up to the dock, and waved glow sticks as the newlyweds made their exit on a boat.  How awesome!  Congratulations Cody and Genevieve!
