real wedding: tessa & rich 9/7/13

The perfect summer day, a beautiful couple, breathtaking décor, and a crystal blue ocean backdrop…. these are just SOME of the elements of Tessa & Rich’s wedding day. A wedding coordinator herself, Tessa had high expectations for her planner, and I think I delivered 🙂 I was so honored to be a part of this event….. from beginning to end it was nothing but class!

Tessa chose a stunning blue for her bridesmaids, with the rest of the décor being mostly white. Hints of silver and mirror accents finished off the look. Clean, Crisp, Classic…. an all white ballroom is simply timeless. The Ritz-Carlton was the perfect venue for this celebration, guests enjoyed the ocean view from the Pavilion ballroom all evening long!

Nisie’s Enchanted Garden provided the flowers. I was in LOVE! Tessa’s bouquet was one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen (and I see a lot of bridal bouquets!). The hanging rhinestones were just my style! The all white centerpieces were perfection and the “wow” factors like the guest book table tree with hanging crystals and candles made a huge impact.

Steve with Honored Occasions kept the dance floor packed all night! The night flew by….everyone was dancing and having so much fun! Before we all knew it, it was time to cut the cake! Not just any cake…. a floating cake sitting on a bed of white hydrangea! LOVE!

Tessa and Rich, it was so great working with you both on this beautiful wedding! I am so happy for you both, and honored Tessa that you trusted me with your big day. I wish you all the success with your own coordination business!
