Angie and Steve were married on a beautiful May afternoon at the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Henderson. Angie, her parents and I have been planning her wedding for over a year so I was very anxious to see all of the details come together! It was an absolutely stunning event and they couldn’t have been happier!
The day started off at Green Valley Ranch where Angie, her bridesmaids, and the moms were pampered by Makeup in the 702 with hair and makeup. The bride and groom were then transported to St. Francis by a rented Mercedes Benz. The entire wedding party walked into the ceremony to the lovely sounds of a string duo by Classical Entertainment.
After photos and refreshments in a suite, it was time to celebrate at DragonRidge Country Club! Angie surprised Steve with a stunning second wedding dress and hair change followed by a “first look” and more photos during cocktail hour. A live band (Harbor Lights) kicked off their five and a half hour reception.
At dinner, guests dined on a delicious four course meal that included a refreshing duck breast exotic green salad, a pasta course, and a choice of an entree course of either Kobe Beef NY Strip, Roasted Peruvian Sea Bass, or Braised Young Chicken. The meal ended with a wedding cake dessert.
Their three tiered square wedding cake was set on top of a plexiglass with a layer of flowers underneath on a “diamond” encrusted white linen.
By the end of the evening, guests were treated to late night snacks including berries and crème fraiche in champagne glasses, a Bananas Foster and Ice Cream Station with all the trimmings, and butler passed Fresh Baked Warm Pretzels with cheese and mustard sauce and Gourmet Mini Beef Sliders served with Pommes Frites.
Their wedding decor included elegant blush silk dupioni table linen from Wildflower Linens, silver beaded glass chargers, silver Chameleon Chairs with pale pink cushions and Curly Willow Blush Chair Sleeves from Wildflower Linens and tall blush and ivory centerpieces all perfectly lit with pink uplighting and pinspotting to bring out their beauty.
The bride and groom and their bridal party sat at a long royal table and a runner style tablescape of lush floral.
No expense was spared and the result was a breathtaking celebration of Angie and Steve’s love. Congratulations again Angie and Steve!
