Friends, I just love love, and I could not stop smiling when I started viewing Mimi and Don’s Kate Spade Inspired wedding. The two envisioned an intimate soiree at the Loews Don Cesar Hotel, in which family stayed at the core. It’s safe to say these two are so very sweet! Whether they were capturing photos together or cutting their cake with their granddaughters, they emanated pure joy throughout their entire wedding day.
Mimi wore a beautifully beaded gown that was gorgeously chic, and Don looked like a dapper gent in his tux – the perfect combination for a Kate Spade inspired soiree! Mimi and Don became Mr. and Mrs. in an indoor ceremony, and then they danced the night away in a nearby ballroom. However, their ballroom was transformed by Stonehouse Events who planned the entire fete. Y’all, it’s BEAUTIFUL!
Bow napkins greeted guests at their seats with black and white placecards. Tables were adorned with gold sequin linens or black and white stripes, and the bright pink centerpieces by FH Weddings & Events are simply magnificent. From the cake to the lounge seating (and every detail in between), Mimi and Don’s wedding captured by Marc Edwards Photographs is one of my favorites…ever; I can’t wait for you to see more!
From Cindy of Stonehouse Events:
Since this was a second wedding, Mimi and Don wanted to plan a weekend to remember for all of their family and closest friends. Mimi was inspired by Kate Spade and her black and white with hot pink and orange colors. For the wedding, they wanted to create a sophisticated and intimate environment for everyone. The bride and groom also wanted to create a lovely dinner experience for their family and friends.
In the North Terrace of the Don Cesar, my goal was to transform the space from a beach ballroom to an intimate wedding reception. Draping a wall across the room, immediately transformed the ballroom. This allowed us to create an intimate dinner party and then a fun space for dancing and socializing after dinner. The reception was full of shades of pink, gold and black and white. For the bride and groom table along with their children, we incorporated a gold sequin linen filled with various shades of pink flowers down the entire center of the table along with stem candles and votives. We added gold beaded chargers that held a circular menu card printed in black and pink, with a pink bow tie napkin with gold glitter detail in the center. The guest tables consisted of black and white striped linens with various shades of pink flowers and votive candles scattered around. The guest tables also had the gold beaded chargers, circular menu card and signature Kate Spade bow tie napkin as well. With live entertainment for the night, the guests enjoyed the sounds of Colt Clark and his band. We had a Kate Spade inspired wedding cake along with a surprise dessert served to each person. Everyone really enjoyed the atmosphere! J
Unfortunately, their beach ceremony was called inside because of the weather. We still had a beautiful draped arch adorned with florals on pedestals as well as flowers at the back of the aisle to create an entrance for the bride. We also added some uplights to soften the space. The ceremony was very personal as the bride’s brother officiated it. The bride and groom also wrote their own personal vows that highlighted the life they created together. Their vows inspired everyone because their family and friends witnessed the amazing love and relationship that brought these two together. They were definitely a match made in heaven!
The wedding day was magical for all of their family and friends. So much love and happiness filled the day! Everyone is looking forward to the First Anniversary celebration!
