Grand Sparkler Exit!

A Vegan and Vegetarian Menu for our Bride and Groom!

Here are some great photos of an event held in The White Room Loft and Rooftop!  The ceremony was held in The Loft with a Chuppa draped in fabric.  The centerpieces were wild flowers in multiple vases.  Such a natural look with brick walls in the background.  For the Menu that evening the bride and groom requested to have a few Vegan/Vegetarian options:
Hors d’ Oeuvres
Panko crusted Criminis (vegan)
Tuscan Pesto Sundried Tomato Tart
Pear and Almond Brie wrapped in Phyllo
Salad
Strawberry, Brown Sugar Glazed Pecans, Mixed Greens, and Feta (no Feta for the Vegans)
Main Course
A Mediterranean Ratatouille served in a Voulevant (puffed pastry) topped with an Artichoke-Lemon Butter (Sauce on side at station) and placed over Vegan shallot mashed yukon potatoes.
A Pasta Station with sauteed items such as eggplant, squash, spinach, garlic, served with a marinara and a sundried sherry tomato cream sauce (for non vegan guests).
Black Bean and Rice Martini Station
Cuban Style Black Beans and Brown Rice with Plantains.  Served with a selection of cheese, pico de gallo & sour cream

I traveled to New York City and dined at some of the top restaurants such as Candle 79 to make sure we served the same level and quality of food for the evening.  The guests raved and said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding!  That’s what we strive to do for our Bride, Groom and all of their guests!

The New Mr. and Mrs. Braddock!! A Loft & Rooftop Wedding!

What a perfect day for a wedding!  The sun was shining and love was clearly in the air.  Mr. and Mrs. Braddock held their special day in The White Room Loft and Rooftop on Friday, November 9th, 2012.  Vows were exchanged on the Rooftop overlooking the Historic Bridge of Lions and then guests remained on the Rooftop for cocktail hour enjoying one of the best sunsets of the year!  After dining inside, everyone came back outside for some mingling and dancing.  The evening ended with a picture perfect sparkler exit!  We are so thrilled for Allie and Layton and we wish them all the very best! 

-Special thanks to Brooke Images for some really  great photos!


The White Room St. Augustine

Congratulations Jennifer and Alex!!

What an amazing couple! Mr. and Mrs. Saar chose to be married in December during Nights of Lights in St. Augustine.  Our quaint historic town was trimmed and decorated with white lights adding a very magical feel to their special night.  Jennifer’s theme was very elegant with Creme Brulee color overlays and breathtaking centerpieces from Roses of Sharon which were enhanced by the soft glow of candlelight in mercury votives.  They chose to host their ceremony and reception within the White Room Ballroom which flowed seamlessly.  Kaitlyn (Jennifer’s sister and Maid of Honor) recited a heartfelt poem that brought tears and laughter throughout the room.  Then there was dancing….all of the guests got down on the dance floor and we definitely saw some killer moves!!  We ended the evening with a Private Dance between Jennifer and Alex while their guests lined up to send them off with a big sparkler exit.  This evening was such a blast and we were so happy to be a part of their new beginning!  We absolutely adored this couple and we couldn’t be happier for them!  Thank you Pure Sugar Studios for capturing these great images!

A Beautiful Summer’s Night Sky for a Vintage Wedding at The White Room’s Loft and Rooftop!

Here is a peak at Jason Webster Photography’s Blog post….



Rooftop Beauty

“The White Room in St. Augustine is one of the top locations for Florida weddings. So when we were hired to capture James and Jennifer’s rooftop wedding we were thrilled. St. Augustine comes with a plethora of natural backdrops. Located at the foot of the “Lions Gate” bridge, the “White Room” holds onto the vintage appeal of old St. Augustine. Hard wood floors, brick walls, and a wrought iron balcony that eloquently over looks “Castillo San Marcos”. James and Jennifer took their “first glance” of one another, on the vine draped walkways of old St. Augustine. We then headed up to the rooftop where the wedding ceremony took place under a strings of lights and a beautiful sky. Jennifer and James set the tone for their reception when they dug into their box of props and came out wearing afro wigs and retro glasses. The room filled with laughter when James and his groomsmen treated everyone to a choreographed dance while sporting super hero underwear and suspenders. It’s always fun for Jason and I, to capture weddings where the bride and groom are willing to have a little fun with their crowd. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful wedding. We pray the Lord will bless and protect your marriage.”


Thank you Jason Webster Photography and your photos are lovely!!



Some details from The White Room….

This was truly one of those mesmerizing Summer evenings!  The night sky was absolutely perfect under the Italian Globe lighting on The Rooftop.  St. Augustine is one of those charming European Cities and what a great backdrop for photos!  The new Mr. and Mrs. are a gorgeous pair as well!  The bride and groom hosted a fabulous event with a Fresh Market Station, Southern Shrimp and Grits, and a Pork Tenderloin with a Pineapple Rum Reduction….we’ll let the photos speak for the rest :)  Congratulations to Jennifer and James!
