When you pair America’s oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida, with a sweet and beautiful couple, you get a spectacular wedding!!!

The historic city always held a special place in Lindsay’s heart, so when this Sarasota, Florida native was planning her wedding, St. Augustine was the logical choice.

The venue chosen was The White Room Loft and Rooftop located on the Matanzas River. With sweeping views of the River , The Bridge of Lions and old town St. Augustine, the setting was truly magical.

Lindsay and her Mom created so many beautiful touches for the wedding.  From a lovely Seating Assignment display to vintage photo albums containing photos of the couple.  To go along with the “vintage” camera era, Polaroid cameras were provided for guests to snap photos of themselves to place in a memory book for the couple.  Guests had so much fun!

The ceremony took place on the Roof top.  As guests arrived, they were greeted with Prosecco Pops while they mingled.  Then when it was time for the vows, they took their seat and watched as the couple exchanged vows with the gorgeous water view.  An interesting part of the ceremony was what they used as the Unity Ceremony.  Instead of a candle or sand, they used colored glass pieces that will later be blown into a lasting trinket for the couple to display in their home.

The guests were treated to an amazing array of food from delicious displays for Cocktail Hour with specialty beverages to a 5 course meal to a huge dessert display including a ROot Beer Float station, Hot Chocolate Station, Cookie display and a Strawberry Shortcake station.  Guests definitely left with full bellies.

As a post-wedding treat, the guests were suppose to go play mini-golf, however, a few weeks before the wedding, Hurricane Matthew hit and unfortunately destroyed the mini-golf course, so instead, guests were treated to a Trolley Ride through historic St. Augustine.  It was an excellent end to the evening.  

We wish Lindsay & Aaron a lifetime of happiness.  We were indeed honored to have a part in your special day!!!

Leslie & Andre’ say I DO in Grand Style!

Leslie and Andre’ selected one of Atlanta’s most beautiful venues, The Swan House and the Grand Overlook Ballroom of the Atlanta History Center.  While they may not be huge “Hunger Games” fans, the location certainly didn’t go unnoticed by their wedding guests.

I fell in love with Leslie’s dress.  It was absolutely STUNNING!!!  She had a custom head piece made to compliment her attire.  When Andre saw her for the first time, he was filled with emotion.

In lieu of a large wedding cake, the couple opted for a small cake from HH Desserts,  to be used for cutting, then a dessert display was provided for guests to enjoy.  Bold American Events provided the delicious food for the wedding as well as the tasty treats on the dessert display of a Red Velvet cake shooter, Oreo whoopie pies and Key Lime cake pops.

Event Performance provided the string ensemble for the ceremony, and DJ Jeff kept the crowd entertained throughout the evening.

Leslie and her siblings prepared a special dance for the guests and had her father join in.  This was definitely a crowd pleaser.
