Glamorous Summer Nights

Alysa and Paul pulled out all the stops for this KILLER summer wedding. A day of love, live music, ice sculptures and more, this day was equally as unforgettable for the guests as it was for the newlyweds!

Alysa and Paul were treated to perfect summer weather and took full advantage. They featured a golden boho mirrored welcome sign, a large light up love sign, and even a live harpist to play the processional music at the outdoor ceremony site. Blush pink took center stage for the day, highlighted in the bridesmaid’s dresses and the stunning florals from Floral Design of Europe.

While guests sipped their cocktails on the deck, Alysa and Paul hired a professional painter to capture their first moments of marriage as they took in the views. Their unconventional guestbook was made from wine corks, which guests would drop into a giant wine glass. The focal point of cocktail hour, however, was the large ice sculpture that they had made to commemorate the day (and to chill a few shots later in the evening!).

Guests were wow’ed by the reception hall decor, the result of months of planning between Alysa, her florists, and her planner from The Perfect Moment Events. Ivory linens with blush chair bows and accents gave the room a romantic and glamorous feel. Fairy lights illuminated a tree branch adorned with florals making the centerpieces come to life. Another highlight was the five-tiered wedding cake that sat perched atop a gold, geometric cake stand.

As the sun fell, the lights in the reception hall dimmed and Raising Cain Band took the stage. Meanwhile, the lights inside the giant “LOVE” sign were alit outside the reception windows where guests lined up for photos. The Shutterbus parked nearby which gave everyone another fun and festive photo op.

Alysa and Paul, you both sure know how to plan a wedding! Congratulations and thanks for letting us help make your wedding dreams come true!
