Happy Anniversary Kristina & Jim!

Happy Anniversary to Kristina & Jim!

We had so much fun working with this couple and their families for their big day. With a taste of some Irish and Greek culture, this couple tied the knot at St. Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Church and danced the night away to DJ Nate Seider from Style Matters at The Drake. Kristina and Jim sure do know how to have a good time!

The gorgeous pastel floral arrangements were designed and provided by Avant Gardenia. The night was captured by the fabulous Tim and Bethany Taballioux from Tim Tab Studios.

Here is a look back at the details from their special day!

Happy Anniversary Lisa & Scott!

Happy Anniversary Lisa and Scott!

We got to celebrate this couple just last month when their lovely wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty!  (click here to see the feature! )  But here is a look back at the details!!

We loved planning with this couple – they were so fun to work with!  Lisa left most of the details up to us – but when it came to the reception, they loved being with their friends and family!  They knew how to host a fantastic party!

The couple was married at the charming and rustic Gallery 1028.  Calihan Catering provided the delicious cuisine.  The gorgeous white and green floral was designed by Alexandra Jusino from Exquisite Designs.

In the excitement of the wedding day the rings were misplaced, so Amy & Michael chose to use borrowed rings from family members during the ceremony. However, Soirée discovered the rings, and they were delivered to the altar just in time!
