Josephine and Sammy - Part II

August 24th has come and gone and Josephine and Sammy’s wedding was more spectacular that we ever imagined! The new Mrs. Renna stunned her guests, looking incredibly beautiful and well, Mr. Renna, he looked as handsome as ever!! 

While this fabulous couple is having what we hope is the time of their life honeymooning in St. Lucia we wanted to bring you a wedding recap of the magical night!

As you know from our blog last week, MBM was responsible for the following décor and accessories…

Church Décor
Place Cards
Accent Decor, i.e, candles, lights, etc.
Favor Tag

All of which went off without a hitch! While the preparation for the big day started months ago, the finals days looked a little like this... 

Before crystallization

After the trees had been crystallized!

Josephine stopped by with her dress a few days before!! 

For Church décor, Josephine chose silver sashes to line the aisle, backed by shimmer flowers and feathers!

 For centerpieces, the couple chose alternating scapes to brighten up the room!

The first piece was a 4ft feather and crystal wonderland!! Each tree branch was wrapped in cascading crystals, as was the tree ‘bark’.  Feathers were added for a dramatic effect. The top and the bottom of the pieces were lit with LED lights to dramatize the scene! All LED lights were wrapped in crystals as a disguise. 

The second centerpiece was an all crystal chandelier. It hung on heart accented hooks. The chandeliers surged to 36 inches in length. The hooks were adjusted to about 5ft high, to be sure guests could mingle comfortably with 2 feet of space between the table and the chandelier.  The chandelier was also lit with LED light bases that were covered in feather trim….

 The bouquets and boutonnieres were complete show stoppers…. Josephine’s bouquet was 100% genuine Austrian Crystal. The hand wrapped stem, showcased satin ribbon with rhinestones following the seam… as a final touch, a crystal bow was added to the handle…

 The beautiful bridesmaids wore a royal blue, and carried handmade satin flower bouquets, adorned with crystal brooches, feathers and rhinestones. The colors Josephine chose were perfectly accented and the bouquets stood out exquisitely against the dress.

The boutonnieres and corsages were made from the same hand tailored flowers. Each boutonniere housed 3 small flowers, 2 feathers, rhinestones and a crystal stem. The groom’s boutonniere had one flower, with a large brooch center. feather and crystal stem!

Each stationary item the bride and groom chose, was a perfect match to their invitations, which was showcased in last weeks blog! You can see the set together in the photo below!

Other accents included things like crystal wrapped candles, a small feather centerpiece for the sweetheart table and lots of lots of sparkle!

While we are very sad to see this couple go, we couldn’t be happier for them and the way the wedding turned out. All of their hard work paid off, as each guest who passed through seemed to enjoy their beautiful choice of décor and seemed to have a fabulous time on the dance floor! We wish Josephine and Sammy a lifetime of love and happiness!  They will be missed!
