Congratulations Nick and Caitlyn

This wedding reception, with the colors of navy and blush, was so pretty!  The tables had navy floor-length cloths, gold chargers and high/low centerpieces.  The low centerpieces were vases filled with ivory hydrangea, surrounded by votive candles.  The tall centerpieces were gold candelabras with ivory hydrangea and greenery, surrounded by votive candles.  It was so elegant!

Caitlyn’s three tiered white cake was so beautiful!  The frosting was smooth, with beautiful piped accents that looked like lace.  The cake had hand-made spun sugar flowers accenting the tiers.  Nick’s cake was perfect for this Aggie couple.  It had two stacked chocolate tiers and the top was decorated with the A&M logo.  (And yes, we played the Aggie War Hymn.)

When it came to dancing, this crowd liked Pop, Country, Latin, your name it.  At one point, a spontaneous Conga line broke out.  To kick up the fun, the couple passed out glow necklaces, which everyone was wearing.  At the end of the night, the newlyweds stayed to say farewell to their guests before heading out to their new life together.  Congratulations Nick and Caitlyn!

Congratulations Chase and Nicole

The weather was absolutely gorgeous for this wedding with an outdoor ceremony.  The colors for the day were champagne, ivory, gold, and greenery accents.  Nicole’s bouquet was beautiful and it was all greenery with no flowers.  She was in a soft, flowing gown with a lace overlay on the bodice.  The bridal party wore blush dresses in a variety of styles and they carried bouquets of white hydrangea and lots of greenery.  The groomsmen wore a variety of suits and shirts in navy while Chase was in a grey suit.

The reception was very elegant.  When the guests entered the ballroom, there was a wood sign with the table assignments.  The table assignments were on ivory cards clipped to string with small clothes pins.  The guest tables had floor length ivory cloths topped with vases holding ivory hydrangea and greenery.  Votive candles in gold holders surrounded the centerpieces.  Each place setting had a gold charger and an ivory napkin in a gold ring.  The three-tiered naked cake was so pretty and unique.  Each tier consisted of three layers of cake: vanilla on the top and bottom and chocolate in the middle.  The cake was accented with ivory roses and greenery.  For favors, the guests got custom green koozies with Nicole and Chase’s names on them.

The guests at this reception were fun!  They hit the dance floor and didn’t stop dancing until the reception ended.  There were some people who danced for an hour nonstop.  At many times the dancers overflowed to the carpet, and sometimes, almost everyone in the room was dancing!  When the night came to an end, Nicole and Chase stayed in the room to say farewell to their guests.  Congratulations Chase and Nicole!

Congratulations Anthony and Cara

This wedding was beautiful!  The ceremony was held outside at a gazebo, with a gorgeous wood arch draped in fabric and accented with ivory, pale pink and dark red flowers.  Cara’s dress was amazing!  Every inch of it was covered in bling and she sparkled when she moved.  Her bridesmaids wore dusty blue dresses and carried flowers in ivory, pink and dark red.  The groomsmen were handsome in khaki pants, light blue shirts, and navy ties.  Anthony wore the same but had on a blue jacket.  They all looked great.

The tables in the reception ballroom had ivory, floor-length cloths topped by silver chargers and ivory napkins.  The centerpieces were vases and bottles in assorted sizes with floating greenery and candles.  Around each centerpiece was more greenery.  There was also greenery draped down the ballroom’s grand staircase.

The white wedding cake matched the colors of the day perfectly.  It had four stacked tiers, each decorated with pale pink and dark red flowers.  The bouquet toss was a bit unusual, as it was a breakaway bouquet.  When thrown, it separated into four different mini bouquets.  Each was tied with a ribbon with different sayings that varied from “You will marry Prince Charming” to “You will marry the boy next door.”  How cute!

After a night of non-stop dancing, the evening came to an end with the last dance.  The newlyweds then ran through a shower of flower petals before they drove off in a limo.  Congratulations Anthony and Cara!
