To complement the gown, Alexis Ruby Artistry Collective transformed her hair and makeup, opting for an elegant updo with wispy curls framing her face and a more dramatic eye and a pop of pink on her lips.

It’s so important to take time as newlyweds to have a moment just for the two of you. A private dinner is the perfect opportunity. For this sweetheart table, Glen Jenkins at The Shade Tree Floral Events & Designs created a beautiful centerpiece with fresh fruit and tea lights nestled underneath. 

A mauve velvet linen from Gulf Coast Events & Rentals graces the table and their Oak Louis Chairs provide seating for the newlyweds. On the table, also from Gulf Coast Events & Rentals, are glass chargers with gold rims and their Gold Rim Collection plates. Glasses from their Modern collection, Vintage Gold Silverware and gold napkins grace each place. 

Menus by Betty Lu Paperie match the stationery suite.
