Andrew & Arecia were such a JOY to work with and we were thrilled to get to know them & their vision over the course of finalizing the details. Being an all inclusive couple enabled our staff with the opportunity to really customize the wedding experience and elevate the level of service extended to their family, friends, and guests. We were able to roll out the red carpet for this special couple and give them a wedding they've always dreamed of.
Arecia was an absolutely gorgeous bride with a great sense of style and a perfect dress to match. We were blown away by the details involved and how perfectly executed everything was from the stunning florals by Jameson's Flowers that perfectly captured the colors, to the detailing of the lace of the wedding dress, the dessert bar personalization, and everything in between.
The rehearsal meal was a duet plate featuring filet mignon, rosemary chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, homemade roll, and salad topped off with a cherry cheesecake for dessert. The reception featured a traditional Texas BBQ style glazed ribs and mesquite smoked sausage with a mac and cheese bar, coleslaw, beans, and homemade roll. The DJ, Anthony Theodore Riley from Houston kept the party going all night & everything was perfectly captured by Beautiful Things Photography. We are grateful for the chance to reminisce on this wedding for many many years to come!
Some of our favorite inspiration tips and takeaways from the Hill wedding:
- Ceremony Personal Touches: So special and heartfelt to have the Father of the Groom officiate the wedding. Couples that have a close relationship with the officiant end up having ceremonies that feel so tender and personal.
- Unique Unity Ceremony: "Let Love Grow"- we love the unique unity ceremony that incorporated planting a potted plant together. So much symbolism in intertwining their lives, establishing roots, and letting their love bloom. We haven't seen this done before and loved the idea!
- Reception Dress: We loved that fashion forward Arecia was able to squeeze in a wardrobe change and showcase her style with a reception dress
- Dessert Bar- Assortment of monogrammed cookies, cake, and other sweet treats allowed the couple to add in a twist of personalization & customize the dessert experience for their guests
