Jamie + Diego were referred to us by one of our absolute favorite people, photographer Camille Danieli of SCB Photography. Their wedding ceremony was held at Our Lady of The Valley Catholic Church then guests were treated to an afternoon wedding reception at The Sonnet House. The groom is originally from Mexico and we were able to add touches of his heritage in unique details throughout the reception. Passed hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour included Gazpacho “shots” and Shrimp + Chorizo Skewers. It was also important to the couple to give their guests traveling from Mexico a taste of Southern cuisine and what better way to do that than with a Southern Shrimp + Grits station? We also designed personalized koozies for them with a monogram as well as their hashtag and “Salud, Y’all!” Salud is Spanish for cheers!
Our in-house floral designer, Corey, created lush and romantic bouquet of creams and green flowers including roses, anemones, scabiosa, astilbe, seeded eucalyptus and scented geranium. Mixed vintage bottles were used on the guest tables to create an “at home” atmosphere.
Jamie and her bridesmaids had their hair and make-up done at Morgan Ashley Salon then came to The Sonnet House to get dressed for photos. The bride’s cake was designed by one of our favorites, Diane Olexa with Olexa’s Cafe, Cakes, & Catering. The wedding cake doubled as a charm pull for the single ladies of the reception, and the cake stand was a tree stump from the bride’s grandmother’s property. Guests were shuttled from their hotels by Cline Tours, and the bride and groom left the reception in a classic, black car from Vintage Auto. The Legendary Pineapple Skinners entertained guests for the first few hours of the reception then guests were surprised with a Mariachi Band!
Thank you again SCB Photography for sharing your beautiful work with us!
