A Summer Soiree!!

We had the great pleasure of being a part of Amanda and Chip’s wedding. This couple and their adorable son are so sweet! When Amanda first contacted us five weeks before the wedding, she was fairly panicked. She only had a few things taken care of and was behind on many other items including dress, flowers, cake, etc. We calmed her down and assured her that we can do it! With our arsenal of tricks and our “can do” attitude, we managed to pull everything together beautifully! At one point through the planning, Amanda actually called us and said that she was bored! :)

They selected the gorgeous Palmetto Club at Fish Hawk Ranch as their venue and a color scheme of pink, green, & chocolate brown. Interesting touches such as pink fans on each ceremony chair, a cylinder of green apples on the escort card table, and pink uplighting around the ballroom created the perfect atmosphere for a beautiful day! Fish Hawk Weddings made all of the flowers, including the cake topper with heart-shaped bear grass. Sweetie's Delights made a cake was not only pretty, but it was yummy! The ceremony took place in the garden in front of a wrought iron arbor. A moving aspect of the wedding was that the bride carried a blue ribbon on her bouquet and a blue candle was burning during the ceremony in memory of their deceased son. It was such a beautiful way to honor him! Good Food Catering enticed the guests with the delicious, including fried mac and cheese lollipops (the groom's favorite), watermelon gazpacho, and Thai shrimp! Chuck from Solid Gold Entertainment kept the party rocking all night, while Abe’s Photography captured all the fun memories. And, we of course ended the night with a sparkler send off!

Amanda and Chip's wedding goes to show that it’s never too late to create your “happily ever after!” Congratulations Amanda and Chip! We wish you the best!

We also want to thank Lindsay, our new intern, for all her hardwork on this wedding!
