This blog has been a long time coming, but there are so many details and so many pictures that I waited until I had time to give it justice. This story is the follow up to another blog posted "Fit for a Princess...." . These two were fantastic, always up for fun and really didn't let too much get to them. As many of you know there are many stages to planning a wedding, and there can be many ups and downs. This process was no different. At the end of he day, this group had a great time, everything looked beautiful and another couple was married and sent of to Happily Ever After.
The day started with preparations at The Hotel Valencia on the Riverwalk, a very chic and modern place for high class, in the know, trendy folks. Sherry Hammonds Photography provided us with these fantastic pictures.
Next the the Longhorn adorned limo drove the Bride and her parents to the McNay Art Museum. This museum offers so many different styles, old world and modern, indoor and outdoor. The guests enjoyed a beautiful fountain side ceremony under a handmade canopy that the bride dreamt up. Following the ceremony the guests made their way to the beautiful Blackburn Patio, where they enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres.
After a music filled cocktail hour was completed, the guests moved to the beautifully lit Leeper Auditorium. The amber up-lighting created the initial ambiance of the room. The bride chose fall colors to adorn the tables through her flowers, linens and menus. They chose to have their initials placed strategically behind the DJ. The decor was planned with the Bride, Clearly Classy Events and executed by Pizzini Designs.
Their guests enjoyed a surf and turf dinner and of course and open bar!
Toasts, dancing with family, cake cuttings, bouquet tosses all ensued after dinner....
Yes this Bachelorette did do the splits to catch the bouquet!
This group had a great time, they danced until the DJ cut the music for the final time.
Just a few details, the rings, her flowers, the sign in "book" (the bride chose to use a canvas), the seating cards and each couple walked away with a bottle of personalized wine from Gruene Winery.
The send off....
This was the end of the night for Clearly Classy and all of the staff, but we are confident this wasn't the end of the evening for the couple, after parties were planned and the fun went on! Congratulations to the happy couple!
