Kristen and Alen's Davis Island Wedding
On March 25th, Kristen and Alen said "I Do" under bright blue skies surrounded by many friends and family at Davis Island Garden Club. The weather could not have been any more perfect for their outdoor ceremony and the bride and groom could not have been any more adorable!
Kristen came to Flawless Occasions in August of last year in search of a day of coordinator. She really wanted to make sure that her wedding was fun for her guests and she absolutely accomplished that!
Before the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy cocktails on the patio which was decorated with beautiful chandeliers, sheer drapes and cocktail tables decorated with beautiful white and fuscia linens (which were provided by Kate Ryan Linens). Guests were able to enjoy beautiful music by a string ensemble too.
For the ceremony, the gazebo was decorated with more draping and gorgeous arrangements which were created by Botanica. Rose petals lined each side of the aisle and pails full of roses hung on shepherds hooks.
The inside of Davis Island Garden Club was elegant and charming all at once. The escort cards were boarding passes which had a destination for each guest. The destinations were the table names which represented places that Kristen and Alen had been to together.
Botanica provided draping and up lighting which transformed the room. The tables were covered with gorgeous crushed satin table cloths (from Kate Ryan Linens), silver chargers, aqua colored napkins and silver chivari chairs from First Class Rentals. Kristen created her own centerpieces which were a mix of tall glass cylinders with roses and shallow bowls with floating flowers and candles. In addition, Botanica created two huge arrangements with curly willow.
As an extra treat for the guests, a cigar roller from Cuban Dreams was on hand so guests could enjoy their own freshly rolled cigar.
I cannot say enough great things about Cory from Grant Hemond! He really kept this party crowd on the dance floor shaking and moving all night long.
Mandy & Me photography was there to capture the moments and photograph this fun loving couple. Mandy already has pictures up on her blog which is amazing in itself! It is also the reason I have these fabulous pictures to share on our blog. (Please check out her blog for more pictures though!!)
Life's Highlights was also on hand to video the entire day. I hope to have some of their footage to show you soon...so don't forget to check back!!
Most people know how much I love cake and this one was no different! As always, Laurie from A Piece of Cake created a Cake that was delicious to the eyes and the taste buds!
Last but not least, the catering and bar tending were provided by Amici's who prepared a beautiful buffet of items personally selected by the bride and groom.
It was such a pleasure to be part of Kristen and Alen's special day! I hope they are enjoying their awesome honeymoon in Turks & Caicos!
I also wanted to give a shout out to our newest Flawless Occasions member, Kelly. She did a fantastic job helping with the set up and I am so happy to have her on board. Thanks to Shawna who stopped to assist as well and one last special thank you to Cory from Grant Hemond for the help packing up at the end of the night!
Kristen and Alen - thank you for hiring Flawless Occasions. You two have a love that is contagious, fun, and inspiring all at once. I wish you both a lifetime of happy moments!
Thank you to Mandy & Me Photography for letting us share all of the following photos!
