A Match Made in Heaven!!!

Fall weddings have a special place in my heart but especially when the couple is as adorable as this one!  Tanaya and Kevin were a delight to work with and their wedding day was just perfect!


The venue, which happens to be one of my favorites, The Georgian Terrace Hotel, was the site for both the ceremony and reception.  The staff is so accommodating and the ballrooms just ooze Southern charm.


Capturing the images of the day was Robin Gaucher. She and her assistant scoped out beautiful areas within the hotel to take the pre-ceremony photos.  Both the bride and groom are so beautiful, that they could easily be models – so Robin had a lot to work with. 


I always love when clients do something unique for their wedding, and for Tanaya and Kevin, it was the musicians.  For the ceremony, the keyboardist from the band, Belladae, provided the prelude music while guests were being seated.  They also had two soloists, one of which is the lead singer from Belladae.  As the parents were being seated, one of the soloists sung “Give Us This Day” and then as the wedding party processed, Sarah sang “How Deeply I Need You”.  Both of the soloists had beautiful voices and left the guests wanting to hear more.  For the bride’s processional, she selected a non-traditional song as well – “Every time I Close My Eyes” by Baby Face.  As she and her dad began the walk down the aisle, her eyes met Kevin’s and you could just feel the love between the two.


Island Flowers and Gifts provided the beautiful flowers for the wedding.  Keeping a formal and elegant feeling, the bride’s bouquet contained ivory roses, hydrangeas, and mini callas with the stems completely wrapped in delicate sheer ribbon.  The bridesmaids’ bouquets contained champagne roses and hydrangeas and finished off with champagne ribbon, which perfectly coordinated with their dresses.  The reception décor was also elegant with the whites and ivories to include orchids, lilies and hydrangeas.


As guests enjoyed their dinner, Belladae provided the background music.  Then once dinner was over, DJ E Class took over and kept the crowd dancing all night.  For me, an exciting part was during the Soul Train, when one of the guests, who was a cousin of the bride, took his turn and danced to a Michael Jackson song.  He was fantastic.  During the dance, one of the bridesmaids informed me that he has been a Michael Jackson impersonator for years and use to even travel with Michael.  I’ll admit, I became a little star-struck! 


Of course, no wedding would be complete without the cake, and this was no exception. 


Celso’s provided both the Bride and Groom’s cake.  The bride’s cake was a four tier square design with ivory and silver pearls. 

The groom’s cake was a silver ball and chain!


The common comment heard as guests were leaving was that this was one of the best weddings they had ever attended.  Judging from the smiles on everyone’s faces, it was definitely an enjoyable event for all!


Our wish for Tanaya and Kevin is that they have a lifetime of happiness that exceeds their wildest imagination!
