I love weddings, obviously. But what I love more is the relationships I form with my clients that last long after the wedding. With Crystal and Nick, their love and adoration was contagious; you couldn’t help but be in the same room and feel their chemistry and have a constant smile on your face. Not only because they’re hilarious, but because they have the love you think only exists in movies.
Crystal and Nick’s day was so them and they played perfectly into their favorite color of red with splashes in the tuxedos and a signature drink during their cocktail hour. Vibrant low centerpieces with red gerbera daisies alternating with tall centerpieces with branches and ivory orchids by Botanicals Design Studio offset the black and ivory linens. The ivory chair covers with long red sashes provided by Sitting Pretty/Party Arts were used for both the ceremony and reception, and mimicked the red stripes on the wedding cake by Steven Becker Fine Dining. Of course, the wedding party’s secret wardrobe change into red Converse high top sneakers for the reception literally tied it all together.
Downtime Band did an amazing job providing music for Crystal and Nick’s intimate ceremony in the South Ballroom and cocktail hour in the Grand Lobby. Downtime then kicked it up a notch and had all of the guests on the dance floor during the reception in the Coronado’s beautiful North Ballroom; that is, as long as guests weren’t off taking pictures in the traditional photobooth provided by PhotoboothStL. Of course, Lyle Whitworth Photography was there to capture every moment and detail. Congratulations Crystal and Nick, wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
