It only seems fitting that 2014 begins on a Wedding Wednesday! We are so thankful to have been blessed with amazing clients and a wonderful support system for 2013. You all are the absolute best! Over the next few weeks we are going to continue our “Meet Me” series and recap our fabulous 2013 brides and grooms. However, today we wanted to share a wedding with you that we have never published before!
It seems like so long ago that we were ringing in the new year with this fabulous couple, but the fact is that it was only two short years ago. Yesterday marked the second anniversary of Cortney and Alex and I am thrilled to give you a peek into their gorgeous celebration!
It took 13 months of planning, a gorgeous jewel toned color palette, the largest bridal party we have ever had, two wonderful families, countless creative teams and a lot of love to execute this wedding! We had so much fun with the design process and custom illustrations for our production teams. With creative teams from New York to California and flowers flown in from Chili this is one New Years celebration for the books.
The ceremony was set at Kirk of the Hills Church with the reception at The Mayo Hotel. We love the fabulous confetti structures for the cocktail hour and what better than signature cocktails and the sound of a live saxophone. During the reception guests were treated to 6 gourmet food stations, a 12 piece band from New Orleans and talk about the decor! Peonies and orchids, fabulous linens, mirrored tables and bars, lounge seating, amazing cakes, a mirrored dance floor and a 5′ clock hanging above the dance floor – just to name a few elements. The bride was gorgeous in her one of a kind dresses and you could see the love between the happy couple all night. After midnight guests continued the party in the penthouse with mac’ and cheese in mason jars, a cigar roller and a Jazz trio. What a way to begin their happily ever after and ring in a new year! Happy Anniversary Cortney and Alex!
