Jen & Nelson's Sweet Wedding

Jennifer and Nelson's Wedding was Fabulous to say the least. They definitely had a Platinum Wedding and quoting Jen "it was much more than she envisioned"! Just as the couple themselves, their theme was "Love is Sweet" and boy did every detail carry out the theme throughout the room.

They said their vows in an incredible Outdoor Ceremony with an amazing view at The Westin Diplomat. They had a plexiglass Huppah decorated with pink flowers in the altar and the aisle decor consisted of glass cylinders with beautiful flower arrangements. I pesonally loved this Wedding because in case you haven't noticed yet, pink is my favorite color and this Wedding had pink accents all over.

The Cocktail Hour entrance was enhanced with draping to create a entrance and rigt inside, a table displayed Engagements pictures from the couple at a local fair by their photographer Melissa from Simply Captivating whose husband was in charge of the Video. A wish tree was also placed here and guests wrote special messages to the Newlyweds and then hung the cute little cards by their pink ribbon strings.

The Cocktail Hour tables centerpieces consisted of vases filled with hot pink bubble gum and a pink flower stem. These were a hit, needless to say by the end of the hour all the bubble gums were gone :) -Everyone has an inner child-.

Check this out. The Escort Cards were not merely cards as usual, they were pink lollipops with a round sticker indicating the name of the guest and their assigned table. These were displayed in different white and pink square vases decorated with a bed of tiny silk flowers to cover-up the foam.

The Wedding took over the whole Ballroom and the Decor was to dye for. Tiffany blue came into play for the decoration of the Reception. Ana from ABCovers brought beautiful tiffany blue linens and overlays, as well as white chiavari chairs with a crinkle pink cushion. She tied all the 200+ rose sashes in the back. Kudos to her as this took many hours of work.

Being a 1st grade teacher, Jen made sure that the kids felt important at her Wedding and she wanted them to have their own table named "V.I.K" (very important kids). This table had a paper tablecover on top of the linens and they had crayons and all other materials to have fun with. A mini-candy buffet was also set-up in this table and kids LOVED it. They were seated and entertained the whole time so this is a good idea for those of you who might worry about this.

Jen wanted the Reception to have a clup-type feel -modern and chic-. Lounge furniture was provided by Grace at The Invitation Stand who also set-up draping over the 2 furniture areas placed near the dance floor and did a great job on the draping in the entrance of the Cocktail Hour as well. The Huppah from the Ceremony was brought inside and placed over the Sweetheart Table; it made for a great focal point.

I'm sure all of you want to know about the gorgeous Centerpieces... These were made by Elsa from Elegant Bodas. The hanging crystal added glamour to the tables and when the pin-spot lighting was set-up, the room was glowing! The Cake was designed and made by Rosie from Elegant Temptations and my pics don't do it justice, it was even more beautiful than it looks. Not to mention how yummy it was.

Even the table numbers were white chocolate bars with the numbers drawn on it. I'm telling you this Wedding was perfectly detailed.

The pink uplighting, dance floor gobo and pin-spot lighting of the tables as well as the Entertainment was provided by DJ Ubi (one of his DJ's) and he did not disappoint. The dance floor was packed the whole time and guests really enjoyed themselves.

In one of the pics from the slideshow, you can see Jen's Matron of Honor, her beautiful sister Lauren giving her touching speech and whose Wedding was a dream and I had the pleasure of coordinating as well. Lauren, thanks for the sending your sister my way!

Jen & Nelson, hope you guys had a blast in your Honeymoon as you did in your Wedding. Thank you for entrusting me with all the Wedding details. It was an honor to be part of your Day. Congratulations!!!

A special thanks to Grace from The Invitation Stand and Denise from The Westin Diplomat for all your help, you really went above and beyond!
