So I am seriously a slacker and am just getting around to blogging about this fantastic couple’s wedding from last month. So hard to believe 2009 is almost gone… Wow…
Anyway, back to Sal and Sherry’s lovely Black Tie wedding… a truly glorious affair… Sal and Sherry were such a delight to work with. I honestly enjoyed their working with the two of them and making sure that all their plans came together on their special day. It wasn’t a difficult task, because they really did have wonderful vendors to work with and they chose my favorite venue for their ceremony and reception, the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace.
Their lovely ceremony took place in the Rose Garden, where the girls wore ravishing black gowns, held red roses and then of course, Sherry was dressed like a royal princess in her stunning white wedding gown. Sal didn’t look too bad either in his dashing tux and huge grin on his face. We couldn’t have planned for better weather either for their November wedding. The sunset that reflected upon Nixon’s birthhouse, which sat in the background of their ceremony, was simply breathtaking. Thanks to Signature Party Rentals for the garden white folding chairs for completing their lovely ceremony scene. A truly glorious, romantic ceremony it was!
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres by the fantastic White House Catering, heard the tunes of a live violinist (a close friend of the family), and toured the Library. Sal and Sherry were even able to enjoy the cocktail hour as they chose to have all their pictures taken before the ceremony and Sir Harrison Photography did an excellent job making sure to capture them in the best light… Great job Sir!
As we opened the doors to the East Room for their reception, Sal and Sherry along with their parents, greeted all their guests in the more common Receiving Line. Then, Sal decided to surprise Sherry with a song dedication, in which he sang a song he wrote for her. There wasn’t a dry eye left in the room, including mine.
Nicole Posca did a fantastic job on the florals, combining a few different arrangements that were very eye-catching… all in the black and white, with a splash of red color scheme. Larsen Lighting also provided great ambient lighting and the stage for a new favorite band of mine… All Star Trio… They were absolutely a blast and kept the dance floor hopping all night! Everyone truly had a great time dancing the night away and enjoyed celebrating the Newlyweds…
And of course, who could forget the amazing cupcakes and display done by a close family friend, Cindy. It was a unique and yummy display… Great job, Cindy!
Thanks Sal & Sherry for letting me be a part of your special day. Truly an honor!
