Diana hired me over a year ago to coordinate her wedding over frappaccino's at Starbucks! After having to do all the running around for her brother's wedding she knew she did not want to put that burden on any of her bridesmaid's on her day. Awesome bride!
I knew from the very beginning that this wedding was going to have lots of personal unique touches, which I love!!
The theme was always candy, then Diana found out October 18, 2008 was considered "The Sweetest Day" and went all out. The result: a beautiful candyland-ish event that I think sent most guests home in a sugar coma!!
The reception took place at the Rusty Pelican on Key Biscayne.
When guests arrived for the cocktail hour their first hint at what was ahead was the escort card table. The place cards were on little sticks which were then placed in little chocolate frosted vanilla cupcakes that had a little "cherry" (fondant with a licorice stem) on top.
Guests then walked in to a romantic red room. Red up lights were placed all around the room to give t a nice glow. The tables were dressed in chocolate brown crinkle and red satin linen and napkins. The chairs covered with a chocolate brown sating cover with red satin bow. The tables were names after all different kinds of chocolates. There were high and low centerpieces. The low center pieces were a candles holder in a rose ring. The candle holder held a hersheys kiss candle!
The favors the guests took home were coasters and a personalized shot glass. They also took home CD's which were later placed on the candy buffet.
The AMAZING cake that had been talked about all day and night was definitely the focal point. Rosie of Elegant Temptation gets a standing ovation from be for putting together this awesome confection!
For height purposes, here is the happy couple cutting their yummy cake!
The candy bar was a total hit!!!!
Here are some pictures of the candy bar all set up before guests walked in the room.
Here is the candy bar before the couple even finished their first dance!!
Yup, we couldn't believe it either.
In honor of the couple being huge sports fans, these bobble heads were made and placed on their sweetheart table.
Diana also had a big surprise for Orly. The UM mascot Sebastian made an appearance at the event. The guests totally loved having them.
A photo booth was rented for the evening. It was packed all night. I'm sure once they get that CD there will be all kinds of hilarious pictures to look at. Including ours!
Brig and I and our boyfriend Sebastian.
Us and the lovely Bride!
Diana and Orly, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day. It definitely was a long road but through it all a beautiful and much deserved special day for the both of you. We couldn't be happier for the two of you!
