Sparkle, Glitz and Glam at the Ritz!: May 29, 2011

Wednesday, August 10, 2011





Typical of most years, Memorial day weekend was the first weekend booked for a wedding for 2011. I was absolutely over the moon excited about working with Shannon and Bryan on their 5/29/11 nuptials, as I knew this was going to be quite the wedding event! They wanted everything at the Ritz Carlton's beautiful Silver Grille room (which, if you're a regular Kirkbrides blog reader, you know we love doing weddings in that room!). As our planning relationship evolved, I learned a few things:
  • they wanted a very contemporary blue and white "South Beach" feel for the cocktail hour with trendy food stations including thai, sushi and a few big long bars
  • all white for the ceremony and all white with lots of sparkle for the reception as well, with just a touch of Shannon's favorite color purple for the lighting
  • a big grand entrance to wow guests as they arrived for the ceremony
  • they LOVE their Yorkie dogs and we used them on the save the dates dressed as a bride and groom, as well as an ice sculpture at the ice cream bar at the reception!
  • they have wonderful families who were so very fun and kind to work with along the way of planning for 16 months
Our day was made perfect by the following vendors showcased in the pictures:
Floral and Decor: Arne at Blooms by Plantscaping
Cake: White Flower Cake Shoppe
Photography: New Image
Videography and Video Booth: Moonstruck Productions
Band: Jerry Bruno Orchestra
Lighting and Draping: Rock the House

These two are a picture perfect couple who I'm certain will share a lifetime of joy, love and fun together!
Congratulations Shannon and Bryan!
