Julie & Flo were definitely UNIQUE clients! For one, they were already married! Instead of a typical wedding, they were planning a "Decade of Love" Vow Renewal! And, they were determined to go big, or go home! A theme of BLING was definitely the common thread throughout their event! With a color scheme of black, silver, and burgundy, crystals shined as far as the eye could see! For this UNIQUE event, a sunset Cocktail Hour took place before the Ceremony. The Cocktail Hour had a black and white color scheme with a modern look, and touch of damask. The wedding party's Cocktail Hour attire was swanky, and filled with Hollywood glamour. For the Ceremony, the bride went all out with crystals and ruffles. Even the bouquets got in on the BLING, with crystal-studded roses. The Ceremony, honoring their ten years together, was filled with mounds and mounds of white rose petals and candles. It was the perfectly romantic setting for the emotional ceremony, where the couple's son gave the bride away. The Ballroom was truly a WOW, where the bride was so happy that she even made us cry! Centerpieces over five feet tall graced each tabletop of textured silver linens, velvet napkins, and crystal brooch accented menus. The wedding party sat at a long king's table filled with deep red rose petals, silver branches, and bunches of burgundy orchids. At the end of the king's table, was a sweetheart table for the bride & groom. A "bush" of greenery, roses, and branches, separated the sweetheart table, and created a cozy area for the repeat newlyweds. Even the couple's chairs were decorated, accented with floral & crystal pomanders. The cake table was definitely the focal point of the room! A five tier, textured concoction, accented with a crystal monogram cake topper, and crystal cakestand "feet" sat atop a silver pickup-style linen. A white draped chuppah with a hanging branch and crystal chandelier framed off the cake beautifully. A complimenting candy buffet kept the guests on a sugary Cloud 9 all night, and each guest was treated a CD of the couple's favorite music as a wedding favor. Even as the guests departed, they were greeted by a starburst of candles and additional candy favors, to keep the sugar high going into the night!
Even with all of the sparkle and glam, there were two things that shined even brighter, Julie & Flo! Their love shined brighter than even the most beautiful diamond!
Congratulations Julie & Flo! We wish you many more years of full joy, love, and happiness!
