Laura and Steve Galbreath 9.19.09

We had the pleasure of working with Laura and Steve on their small intimate backyard wedding. This was not your typical backyard wedding. With so much attention to detail, they truly captured the essence of romantic outdoor celebration. Both Laura and Steve are architects, so planning is their nature. We were so thankful of their amazing diagrams for the ceremony and reception they prepared for us and the catering staff. They are also big green thumbs and transformed their backyard into a fantastic garden setting.

We fell in love with this dog!

They created a traditional french menu for their guests to enjoy, of course ending with the famous cheese course

Laura and Steve specifically chose wine corks for place card holders to represent that bottle of wine they shared with that guest. Truly amazing!

Great shot of the backyard before dinner!

To Laura and Steve: We wish you all the best in live, love and marriage!
Thank you to all of the vendors for making this such an incredible night:

Think Pink Tabletop Competition

Last night, NACE (National Association of Catering Executives) hosted an event to sponsor the Dallas Chapter of the Susan G Komen Foundation. Individuals and/or Wedding Associations participated in the event by creating a table scape of a survivor of Breast Cancer. We were asked to represent AACWP (American Association of Certified Wedding Planners) and chose our godmother, Nancy, as our inspiration for the table scape.

AACWP's table won the People's Choice Award at the event! We were so excited and thrilled to have honored a very special lady in our lives!

Below is a description of the design that was displayed by the table:

“In fairy tales, a fairy godmother is a fairy with magical powers who acts as a mentor or parent to someone, in the role that an actual godparent was expected to play in many societies.” To create the fantasy setting where our Fairy Godmother could celebrate with her team of doctors, who helped ward off the ugly stepmother (breast cancer), we wanted to showcase the style of the hostess with her favorite colors and holiday theme – Halloween. The fairytale table is a charming display showing appreciation to her guardian angels or quite possibly her fairy god-doctors…Bippity-boppity-boo!
