Katie and Adam 03/10/12

Peacock feathers abounded at Katie and Adam Powers’ Spring wedding and reception held at the shiny and elegant Waterfront Convention Center on March 10, 2012.  “Ever since I heard that Katie’s wedding would be on March 10 I have been praying for beautiful weather!” mentioned one of couple’s relatives as we waited for the ceremony to begin.  And what perfect weather it was!  Sunny skies and temperatures in the 60’s are not the norm for the second weekend in March, but then again, this was not a normal day for Katie and Adam!

The couple’s ceremony took place in the glass encased atrium of the Waterfront Center, allowing for perfect views of the beautiful day outdoors.  Katie was a beautiful bride as she descended the grand staircase and made her entrance to Purcell’s “Trumpet Voluntary”.

After the ceremony the couple’s 350 guests enjoyed appetizers and cocktails in the West Atrium.  We furnished some upbeat cocktail music using one of our BOSE wireless systems to help make the hour more festive!

The facility’s grand banquet room was opened to the guests at 6:30.  Guests found the room to be beautifully decorated in the couple’s peacock theme, including turquoise and purple flowers, peacock feathers, black linens and chair covers with turquoise sashes provided by Clazzy Designs.

We enhanced the theme with up-lights in turquoise and purple throughout the room.  Katie furnished us with some color swatches so that we could custom match her color scheme and program our up-lights prior to the event.

After dinner Katie and Adam kicked off the dance floor fun by dancing skillfully to “Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis Presley.

As you can see, the party was great and the guests really used the dance floor to it’s fullest!
