Another gorgeous wedding for the books! Molly and Grant’s spectacular wedding at the stunning Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine was nothing short of fabulous. Besides a minor weather hiccup… meaning August heat in Florida is downright brutal sometimes! It was just so hot and sticky that day so for the comfort of her guests Molly opted to have the Ceremony indoors but that did not keep us from setting up one beautiful Ceremony. In fact, unless you knew why the Ceremony was moved indoors, when you look at the décor design for the wedding you would think that having the wedding indoors was the plan from the get-go! Which is exactly what our desire was and the finished product was just gorgeous!
Moving on we cannot forget the Reception! One word that best describes Molly and Grant’s reception is “Classy”. The black dance floor just popped! The reflection it gives is that of looking like you are dancing on water. It reflects every light so beautifully! The centerpieces were a combination of both tall and short designs to add visual interest in the room. When you have 15+ guests tables, I always encourage showcasing two different centerpiece designs as a way of layering and giving guests something different to swoon over. For Molly’s short centerpieces we incorporated something personal to her and her family and that was her mother’s collection of vintage oil lamps! Each of which were all different which in turn again added another point of interest to the tables. Last and certainly not least we swaged strands of beautiful crystals from underneath her tall centerpieces as a way to create a “chandelier look” and because they are great at reflecting the light in the room!
We could not be more proud to have been able to be a part of Molly and Grant’s special day. So a big THANK YOU to you both for trusting us to handle one of the most important parts of your wedding and a special Thank you to Karen Erwin of St. Augustine Weddings & Special Events for bringing Molly and Grant to us. We love working with such a talented Wedding Coordinator!
