05.25.08 Details, Details!

Photos by Jonilyn Photography
Our easel directed guests to their seats. The tables were named after places that Mark and I have visited or hope to someday visit. The backgrounds of each card doubled as our table signs and as the vintage postcards that guests signed for our wish board.

Floral Initials - an idea borrowed from the uber talented Mrs. Pootiekins,

I love this aerial shot. I have seen Jonilyn do it at a few weddings now and I think I may even call it one of her signature shots :)

Maui was our sweetheart table, and our honeymoon destination!

Aren't candles completely mood altering?! We wrapped each of those bad boys with ribbon, so we were thrilled that they successfully added to the elegant ambience of the night.

Sarah later had some fun with the candy and took my two favorite ring shots

We opted to serve our guests bite size desserts in lieu of cake. Each table was treated with one of these dessert trays. The grand piano is the Madison's signature piece - made of chocolate, filled with creme brulee and berries! DELISH! This picture was taken by one of our guests...

I have to take a moment to praise the wonderful staff at the Madison. I cannot be more grateful for all the guidance and flexibility was offered to me from their staff. Patrick, the owner, was one of the biggest selling points of this place. He is perhaps the sweetest man you will ever meet and everything we requested was met with his infamous line "my pleasure." We could not have had such an amazing day without him. Christina, their coordinator, was a doll and was willing to do anything day of to make sure the details looked fabulous. Both were present the whole time during the wedding, making sure everything was flawless. Seriously, if you are venue shopping still - I recommend this place without any hesitation at all; it does not disappoint. And if you haven't eaten there, I HIGHLY recommend it! The food is exceptionally fantastic. I'll even go with you! ;)

That's all for now. I am going to
attempt to take some photos of our invites to share with ya'll.

Stay tuned for the finale, coming up next!

Details take a wedding to the next level, and it really made yours over the top. You carried out that travel theme beautifully. I love how it all came together.
