Purple Accents in The Gardens Chapel

Wednesday, 12.12.12. was a big day for us here at Ashland Gardens and The Gardens. We had the pleasure of hosting an Intimate Ceremony and TWO Royal Wedding and Reception Packages! Rumor has it that nationwide, 7,500 couples chose this special date to tie the knot! It truly was a once in a lifetime day for people to say “I do!”

Centerpieces, Cake Cutting, Limo Exit!

The afternoon wedding and reception for Yvonne and John and 100 of their guests held in store a chapel full of gorgeous purple accents, a heartfelt ceremony, heavy hors d’oeuvres in the reception with a DJ (Dance Party Productions), purple uplighting, and a champagne & wine bar. Their cake was a towering 4 tiered hexagon shaped cake with purple flowers between each tier. The Bride chose a Diamond Icing Design with the top tier having a Heart Icing Design. The Groom’s cake boasted decadent chocolate icing designs and chocolate covered strawberries. The couple left in a limo and went straight to the airport for their Jamaican Honeymoon! They were not only a delight to work with, but such a sweet couple who had a blast on their wedding day! It was fun to share in their joy – the bride was simply radiant with excitement at each new point in the day!

The evening wedding for Jennifer and Shane and 50 of their closest friends and family was absolutely everything an evening winter wedding should be – elegant, romantic, and downright dreamy. Their colors were red, ivory, and black which was a beautiful touch in The Gardens Chapel. The flowers were done by PJ’s Flowers and Gifts – they were amazing! White roses, cala lillies, and red hypericum berries with black and red ribbons and a custom designed flower girl basket in those colors tied in exactly what the bride was hoping for her special night!

Their reception included heavy hors d’oeuvres, Dance Party Productions (DJ), and custom red uplighting. Their cake was the epitome of festive elegance with red ribbon at the base of each tier with our Tie The Knot Icing Design and a red flower topper. They got a little feisty behind the cake table, but they kissed and made up and spent the rest of the evening dancing the night away.
