Fun, personal, and charming described Sarah and Matthew’s wedding perfectly. Sarah and Matthew took a vacation from the cold conditions in Colorado to wed in warm Southern California weather on Saturday, January 14, 2012. The couple was married in our courtyard ceremony site under a arch with delicately draped swag accented with red roses, lilies, blue roses, and white flowers provided by Michael’s Flower Girl.
Place cards consisted of picture frames that had each guests name and their designated table. Tables were named after a location in the couple’s home state of Denver, Colorado. In the center of each table were picture frames that featured photos of the various locations. A candle was placed in the middle of each frame which illuminated the photos. Red rose petals and votive candles were scattered around the frames and added the finishing touches to the table.
The high lite of the evening had to be the bridal party’s grand entrance. The DJ individually announced each bridesmaid and groomsmen and then gave fun tid bits about each person. It was funny and insightful for guests to hear. Some of the groomsmen had been friends with the groom since the third grade!
The couples cake was one of a kind and it had a secret. The wedding cake was actually fake and it had a secret compartment where a small slice of cake was placed when it came time for cake cutting. Sarah and Matthew had sheet cakes that were cut and served by our staff to save on cake costs. The cake was made of fondant and fragile like an ordinary cake because it could be damaged by a bump or mishap. The guest’s had no clue it was a fake cake until they noticed it stayed untouched as they dined on cake.
It was a wonderful experience working with Matthew and Sarah. We look forward to seeing photos in the near future from Baird Photography. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Garrett.
