Wedding Bliss

You are cordially invited to view the most exquisite wedding...
Here is a peak into the celebration of Mauricio & Kasie's big day!

This is the NAME LEGACY I handmade for their wedding gift.
I love to research names and present them as presents -
it is one of my most favorite things to give!!

The beautiful couple and the bride's parents:
Chris & Mary Ann Hagerty

The Hagerty Family
Chris & Mary Ann
with their 4 gorgeous daughters:
Katie - Kimmie - Kasie - Kristie

The theme for the wedding was:
A Garden Sanctuary
pastel colors...lush flowers and greenery...amazing candles
whimsical touches...grand decor...blessing upon blessings

I had the honor of designing and decorating this divine occasion!
Everything is my handmade originals!

The reception was at one of our favorite restaurants - Maria Bonita's.
The owners are our close friends - Henry & Nancy.
We love and adore them!  Their generosity is matchless!
Mauricio is Colombian and this is a restaurant specializing
 in the most delectable Mexican and Cuban food.  
We have celebrated many wonderful events at Maria Bonita's.
Their daughter, Andrea, is one of my Kitchenette Girls!
You can see a past post of one of our Kitchenettes' adventures HERE: 

I was inspired to do table numbers with a twist!
Each table was an individual garden and
guests received corresponding cards inviting
them to relax in their own unique garden setting.

Kasie is the daughter of my beloved friend - Mary Ann!
Yes...the famous Mary Ann that I rave about...my true friend.

Life Began In A Garden...
Some examples of our table escapes were:
The Serenity Garden
The Harmony Garden
The Faithfulness Garden
The Peaceful Garden
The Victorious Garden
The Tranquility Garden
Each table represented a little sanctuary of heaven
 to bask in this glorious day of love!
And then there was...
The Garden Sweet Garden
The grandest of all Candy Bars!
I adorned each small glassine favor bag with:
Mauricio & Kasie
Sweet Love 

Each guest took home a bag full of the sweetest of treats!

~*~ The Family Table  ~*~
The blessed couple, their families and the bridal party
sat together at this gorgeous table.
The Covenant Love Garden 

The Wedding Feast
A sumptuous meal of Spanish delights!
I handmade the menus with all the choices
the guest were able to choose.
It was out of this world delicious! 
I have such a weakness for Spanish cuisine! 

I dined on the Lechon Asado
oh my goodness!!!

The bride and groom enjoyed their meals on my gorgeous china pieces.
I brought my lovely Limoges teacups and plates
as well as delicate dishes that would enhance the garden
 theme, gold-trimmed crystal and hand-etched glasses. 
Place settings lovingly arranged for the special couple!

The centerpiece for the wedding table was the one-of-a-kind
Blessing Tree
I placed layers of Spanish moss and river rocks in a large glass vessel.
Then I carefully arranged willowy branches on top
 for the blessing tags to hang.
Each tag was an inspiring quote, prayer or Scripture verse. 

The Wedding Cake
The Enchanted Garden

The cake was 3 separate plain white layer cakes from the grocery store.
We found out that if you order just simple rounds and do not ask for a wedding cake it will be 1/3 the cost!!
I took a mirror from my home and placed it on 2 glass pedestals. 
Next, I I stacked the cakes with cardboard rounds in between!
A beautiful embellishment of yellow roses, rose leaves,
 baby's breath and greenery transformed the look!
The Precious Moments topper was a gift from the bride's parents -
it adorned their wedding cake many years ago.   

I hope you enjoyed seeing this adorable couple start
out on their life together...oh the blessings
 the Lord has in store for them!!

Pursue the practice of hospitality.
