Bety & Tony

Wow, Welcome to Southern California! Less than two months, and we've been busy over here at Adair Weddings. I have been remiss in updating, and for that I apologize! I'm a little behind in posting a fewnt events, but due to circumstances, it's going to be that way for a while! So, I'm skipping a little ahead and posting the most recent event we did, a bilingual ceremony/reception for a lovely couple here in the High Desert of Southern California, Bety & Tony. Bety is from Panama, and she made a simply stunning bride! The couple choose a gorgeous palette of fall colors, and with some custom linens, and some creative budgeting, we turned a simple affair into a smashing success!

>For her bouquet, Bety choose Hydreangeas, Roses (Safari, Circus, and Freedom), and gorgeous Yellow Oriental Lilies (that smelled divine!). I did it all up in a hand-tied arrangement with a base of chocolate satin ribbon, and a gorgeous two-toned silk wired ribbon in the French-Wrap style with pearl accents.

For the bridesmaids I used just one flower, red carnations. The effect was a stunning yet simple bouquet that smelled lovely! I used a shimmery light chocolate wired ribbon for the wrap.

Bety and Tony also had us create the Bridal Cake, about 250 cake balls (in leiu of a Groom's Cake), and a custom coffee-bar. With the problem of not having access to a kitchen, we took the huge silver coffee pots, filled them with bottled water, and an array of instant coffee, hot tea, instant cappucino, and a gorgeous tower of speciality cookies! For the coffee table I had various toppings, from chocolate powder right down to the miniature marshmallows for the hot chocolate. I think this may become one of our signature items, it was fun to do, and the guests really enjoyed having the treat. (this was a non-alcoholic wedding)

I used this gorgeous chocolate satin ribbon to wrap around the cake, and an antique crystal brooch on the bow that was on the center tier. The cake topper was provided by the groom's mother. We "staged" the whole cake table, with custom linens, tiers of plated cake balls, and a few extra touches.

Bety's sons also treated us to a selection of their singing, they are pop stars in their native country of Panama. I recommend looking them up on youtube, Amor by Cesar y Thiago. I wish them luck in their future together, and can't wait for them to release a CD!!
