“Chelsea and Marc wanted an unforgettable celebration filed with glitz and glamour and touches of southern elegance. Finding a space that fit the vision was the first priority. The reception featured blush lighting and lounge furniture specially named for the bride, walls of lush florals and a 360-degree mirrored bar. As a special surprise to the couple, a live painter created a work of art reflecting the beauty of their reception. The bride and groom added the finishing touches to the painting which made the portrait event even more special,” Sarah explains.
The bride wore a classic ball gown from Houston Bridal Gallery and kept her hair and makeup traditional and chic, while the groom, Marc, donned a classic black tuxedo. “The ballroom was awash with blush lighting on the walls accented by the flickering of candelabras guiding your eye to the twelve Louis XVII chandeliers glowing softly,” says Sarah.
A jaw-dropping six-tiered cake from Cakes by Gina, accented with a gold pearl pattern and cascading sugar roses, was the perfect touch for a memorable dessert.
Says Sarah: “My style is traditional with a flair. I am a sucker for all things traditional. They carry so much meaning and purpose on their special day, but I want to add my own twist to it. I am one who likes to see all angles of the day. From the bride and groom to the parents and even to the guests, we make each group’s experience that night one they will remember for years to come.”
Says the bride: “Sarah was so supportive, caring, helpful and patient throughout the whole wedding process. She helped me deal with stress and anxiety of planning a wedding and was always there to offer her advice and listen to me. I couldn’t have done any of it without her!”
