Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Abbott ~ A White Room Ballroom Ceremony & Reception

We can’t get enough of these photos! St. Augustine’s beautiful historic buildings and the European streets created magical and dreamy moments captured in their photos. Their photos capture those perfect romantic moments:) There are so many things to say about them. I am so happy for the bride and groom and I’m truly going to miss working with her and her mom! Some of the favorites of the evening: Strawberry Moonshine Julip Signature Cocktail, Mini Fried Chicken & Waffles, and for the entree: Duet of Crab Stuffed Shrimp and Beef Tenderloin and wedding cake for dessert. Thank you Jason Mize Photography and Tiffani Jones for your amazing photos!

Gorgeous gorgeous…and the bride and dress…right out of a magazine! Congratulations to Lindsay and Jason!

Isn’t Lindsay the bride gorgeous? That gown? Ohhh lala! She looks like a princess or in a magazine shoot! Lindsay and Jason are such a sweet couple and I really enjoyed working with them (and mom:) and wish them the best on their new life together in Texas! The bride and her mother, Michele, had such great ideas for the wedding reception and did everything themselves. One of my favorites was the reception table marked with a corresponding photo of a family member’s wedding photo from decades past. What a great conversation piece! Guests enjoyed a 6 Course Dinner to include: Hors d’ oeuvres of Scallops wrapped in Bacon, Chicken Wellingtons in Puff Pastry, and Mushrooms stuffed with imported & domestic cheeses; Appetizer Course: Shrimp and Grits served in a martini glass; Salad: Bimini Salad of mixed field greens, topped with brown sugar glazed pecans, blue cheese, mandarin oranges, and yellow raisins, served with a raspberry vinaigrette; Main Course: Fresh Flounder topped with Maryland Blue Crab and finished in a sun-dried tomato sherry cream sauce and Prime Rib roasted with Fresh Rosemary and Garlic, served with Au Jus and horseradish cream sauce, whipped potatoes and oven roasted seasonal vegetables; Dessert: Wedding Cake and Petit Fours! Late Night Hors d’ oeuvres: Mini Kobe Beef Burgers and french fries. The guests were then given very fancy crystal wine glasses as a party favor. Congrats to Lindsay and Jason! Thank you Christina Karst Photography! More photos on her blog: http://www.christinakarst.com/the-white-room-wedding-destination-photographer/

Katie & Brian’s Villa Blanca Ceremony & White Room Reception Video!

What a great wedding video that starts with an engagement story that every girl dreams of…being whisked away on a surprise trip to Paris and then St. Augustine, Florida for a beautiful ceremony in The Villa Blanca followed by a grand reception in the White Room Ballroom.

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
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!
