Jennifer and Jason: October 16, 2010

Jennifer and Jason planned for a perfect fall evening ceremony and reception. Although it was breezy, the temperature was mild and there was a lot of bright sunshine.

The guys posed for some photos in the lobby before the ceremony and then it was the ladies turn. I love these hot pink flowers with the black and white color scheme!

Outside the garden patio was set for the ceremony. Jennifer elected to use our columns for her altar arrangements as well as our drape for the back-drop.

Inside the Prosperity Ballroom, everything was set in white with black and pink accents. Look at this adorable cake!

The Sweetheart Table featured a live floral centerpiece and underskirt lighting in white.

The guest tables had black napkins and fresh floral centerpieces in hot pink.

Everyone seemed to have a great time and then it was time to send Jennifer and Jason off in grand style with a sparkler departure!

Best wishes to Jennifer and Jason for a long and happy marriage!

Jenny and Michael: May 1, 2010

Michael and Jenny were a fun couple to work with. I was happy that they had a beautiful wedding day for an outside ceremony. They both got ready here at the hotel before the ceremony began and found time to shoot a few photos before the guests arrived.

I love the fresh spring combination of the yellow against the aqua.

After a lovely ceremony, including a sand ceremony, Michael and Jenny found time to shoot a few photos around the inside of the hotel and the gardens.

I love the perspective of this one taken on the staircase.

Jenny and Michael chose to have a head table for their bridal party. You can see here how it looks under the large ballroom mirror.

The guest tables featured our house hurricane globe centerpieces accompanied by a sprinkling of yellow and blue petals. Look closely and you can see the table name - all of the tables were named after U2 songs.

While the guests seemed to enjoy themselves dancing, Jenny and Michael found time to share a quiet moment together in the garden before making their grand departure with sparklers in the garden.

Best wishes to Jenny and Michael for a long and happy marriage!
