Melissa & Talal had their Nikkah ceremony last year but wanted to officially celebrate their marriage in front of 140 of their closest family & friends at Le Jardin banquet hall on July 17, 2009.
It was our smallest reception of the year and no detail was missed. The wedding was very personalized with table names relating to the couple instead of numbers and arranged seating with personal photo frames for each guest.
The bride looked ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS and made a very grand entrance! Melissa had always dreamed of entering in a white dress with her husband to be waiting at the end of the aisle. We re-created this stunning entrance with flower girls, bridesmaids, vows (being read off of her ipod!) and a ring exchange all outside in the lobby.
After the mini ceremony in the lobby, the guests entered the hall and ate their hors d’oeuvres while the bride, groom and their families took pics on the patio.
We had to do a lot of improv with our MC who wasn’t very good a remembering the schedule 🙂 but our guidance helped him get through the night and it all ended with a great party and a very happy bride & groom! Their very happy video testimonial is available here: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=110665416212&oid=7096184764#/group.php?gid=7096184764&ref=ts.
