The ballroom where this ceremony and reception took place was on the 9th floor of the hotel, and it must have one of the best views in Galveston. Todd and Meredith got married in front of a wall of windows, with Moody Garden’s pyramids in the distance. To go with the wedding colors of navy, burgundy and blush, the bridesmaids wore floor-length blush dresses. Todd’s groomsmen wore navy shirts with burgundy ties. The flowers were beautiful, with dark red, cream, and blush roses, accented with winter greenery. The centerpieces on the ballroom tables matched the wedding’s colors as well. They alternated between all ivory hydrangeas, or colorful roses matching the bouquets.
When the guests arrived, they were greeted by a non-traditional guestbook. They signed small, wooden hearts and dropped them in a shadow box. Later, the newlyweds can hang the shadow box in their home. When it came time to cut the cake, Meredith and Todd’s kids came up and turned it into a family cake cutting. The three-tiered, stacked cake was gorgeous. It had semi-naked frosting and was accented with burgundy and blush flowers. To match the wedding colors, it sat on a gold cake stand.
This couple chose to skip the bouquet and garter, which gave us more dance time. They wanted a lot of 80’s and 90’s music, and the guests loved it! They asked us to play the song Kung Fu Fighting, and everyone was on the dance floor kicking and karate chopping. It was hilarious! There were a lot of kids at this wedding, but they knew the music and were singing and dancing along. Half the time, the guests were overflowing the dance floor! Once the night came to a close, the newlyweds said farewell to their guests before heading off to their new life together. Congratulations Todd and Meredith!
