Monica and Cal’s Windsor Country Club wedding was everything one could dream of and more. Monica is a flawlessly beautiful, petite blond, while Cal looks like he just stepped out of GQ magazine. The two of them together made the perfect couple. The respect and love they have for each other is amazing in how it pours from them both. We felt blessed to have been a part of this magical day, feeling as though it came straight out a fairy tale.
The weather on the day of their wedding was a glorious fall day, as our work began, with the Pink Pelican team dropping off the bridal flowers to Monica and all the girls, as they were in the Windsor Club suites getting ready. Cindy Goetz and Lindsey Naffziger were on hand doing a fabulous job with hair and make up, and Jessi Caparella Photography shooting images of the preparation activities. With the girls dresses hanging in the closest and gift bags for the bridesmaids on the bed, they had prepared a spread of food and snacks for everyone to share.
Monica was in the make up chair as we delivered her bridal bouquet and girl’s flowers. As soon as she saw them, tears of joy filled her eyes. This is the priceless moment that we live for; when we see the bride holding the flowers and we know that we are truly bringing a young lady’s wedding dreams to life.Next stop was to find Cal and the guys to drop off the boutonnieres. There is just something about a guy being with his long-time friends, and the bond they share. Cal was having a great time with all the guys, so we dropped off the flowers and wished him the best.
For the stately Windsor Chapel, Monica and Cal chose to decorate in classic white; with flowers and green ivy on the pews, and white hydrangeas and roses for the alter pieces. The stage was set for their vows, with family, friends, and loved ones by their side. While enjoying these photos, be sure not to miss one special little guest; their precious little French bulldog, outfitted with a coordinating bow tie and serving as one of the ring bearers.
Once the wedding was complete, the guest moved to the lovely Windsor Beach Club for the reception. They were met with a round escort table featuring a beautiful large floral and glass centerpiece. Passing through the lobby of the Beach Club, guests were able to view many old and new photos of Cal and Monica and their family members. The resemblance between Monica and what we guessed was an older relative in an old black and white image (Grandmother maybe) was amazing!!
The reception tent was absolutely breathtaking! The stars glistened through the clear roof, adding to the glow and sparkle from the countless candles. The tables were decorated with gold pedestal floral arrangements in shades of blush, soft, and bright pinks, and accented with silver dusty miller greens to highlight the colors; the spray and garden roses adding an elegant fragrance to the entire space.
The sweetheart table was laid out with a blush sequined table cloth adorned with several small floral arrangements that sparkled nearly as much as the bride and groom! Later in the evening, the escort table was removed and the guest cards were replaced with a simple yet ever-so-elegant white/cream four tier cake from Frostings Cupcakes, as well as a grooms cake decorated in a Dallas Cowboys football motif that a group of childhood friends had made. The bridal cake was decorated with small pink flower accents for a classic splash of color.
As the festivities continued, the evening could not have been any more perfect if it had been ripped from a book of fairy tales; created just for Monica and Cal.
We wish this beautiful couple that touched our hearts a long life together of love and happiness.
