This is the story of Maggie and Jose, and Haute Weddings, and Sugar Hill Bakery. Let me explain. Most of you do not know that I used to own a bakery called Sugar Hill Bakery, where I made wedding cakes for years. Maggie's sister was one of my first customers and I ended up making their families cakes for years. When I sold the bakery, I lost touch with all my customers. Who would know that years later, I would run into Maggie, while doing a facility tour, and our paths would meet again. Long story short, Haute Weddings coordinated her and Jose's wedding and it was MARVELOUS! See for yourself : )
Maggie chose yellow and navy for her wedding colors. Yellow lemons, summer sunshine, and bright yellow flowers...how could you not smile.
First dances and the father/daughter dance always get me...
The night was full of surprises. One was a video played on Haute Cocktails' video bar of their grandparents giving them well wishes and advise on how to have a long, happy marriage.
Maggie loved Olive Garden's red berry sangria, so Megan got the recipe and all their guests sipped on fresh, home-made sangria. It was a big hit!
Rafael, of Illuminating Celebrations, provided their creative lighting effects and music for the evening.
Sweet treats and a photo booth were also big hits. Here are friends from, "back in the day" enjoying the fun and leaving Maggie and Jose sweet sentiments in their photo scrapbook.
The evening was full of even more surprises! A beautiful gift from the best man and maid of honor, an exceptional thank you speech from the groom, and an unexpected announcement of a surprise honeymoon to California. It was a great, great day and I'm so thankful to have been a part of it. Best of Wishes you two!!
