Edward & Ashlinn 3.8.2014


We enjoyed celebrating Ed and Ashlinn's wedding day!  We met with Ashlinn's Mom and sister Courtney (her Maid of Honor) a couple times before the wedding day.  We felt like part of the family already by the time we got to the day of the wedding.

The Ceremony took place in the front room at Olde Cypress Country Club.  It was a candle lit Ceremony, right down to the blackout curtains that Jonathan (at Olde Cypress) let them cover the windows with.

The Cocktail Hour was in the middle room and patio area.  The reception was in the main ballroom that was recently remodeled and looks great!  The dance floor was in the middle of the room with tables on both sides.  The cake was designed by Ashlinn herself!  The sweetheart table was across from all the windows so the new bridal couple could see the view.  They had beautiful candelabras on either side of their table along with the amber up lighting that we provided for the room.  It all looked so gorgeous!

For the introductions they chose "Locked Out Of Heaven" by Bruno Mars.  Ed and Ashlinn came in to "Forever" by Chris Brown.  They went right into their First Dance which was to "You And Me" by Lifehouse. There was a blessing and the Toasts (2), then the buffet dinner.

The tables were all named after love songs.  For the releasing of tables they waited for their song to be played and announced.  Table 9 was named "That's Amore".  The entire room of tables participated in the singing "skit" to surprise Ashlinn.

After dinner was the Father / Daughter dance to "The Way You Look Tonight" Frank Sinatra.  The Mother / Son dance was to "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The very first song for the open dancing Ashlinn wanted "Party Rock Anthem" LMFAO.  The second  song she wanted was "Happy" by Pharell.  After these two songs she wanted the Cake Cutting (Sixpence None The Richer).  There was so fun with all their guests dancing the night away.  When we took a break, we did the Garter Removal.  That song was "Oh Yeah" Yellow.  Bouquet Toss: "Jaws" then mixed into "Hit Me With Your Best Shot".  The Garter Toss was to "mission Impossible"

At 10:30 the guests were instructed to go out front of the Club to receive sparklers for Ashlinn and Ed's Grand Exit.  Between the events was a lot of dancing!

For the finale song, Ashlinn and Ed wanted to hear "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey for all to sing along!  It was such a beautiful fun night!
