Melanie and Joe held a relaxed and laid back wedding which completely fit their personality as a couple. Their ceremony was held at the Laguna Gloria amphitheater and the reception was held on the grounds at Laguna Gloria. A custom mojito bar served guests well, as well as an amazing menu catered by Primizie which included a savory Potato Leek soup completed with a crisp fried leek, a fresh seasonal green salad topped with champagne smoked pear vinaigrette, candied Texas pecans, applewood smoked bacon and crumbled gorgonzola cheese, and grilled sirloin steak roulade with Portobello mushrooms, classic Spanish paella, and classic vegetarian lasagna.

Melanie was a DIY bride and designed/created much of the décor herself. She went with a crisp green and white theme with a classic silhouette motif, and it was a very consistent and beautiful element throughout the event. The grooms cake, Jabba the Hut from Star Wars, was a hit, and the brides cake was a classic round layered cake in a crisp white accented with beautiful sugar anemones. Along with the Jabba the Hut cake, Melanie and Joe had a very playful feel to their wedding, complete with their choice of first dance song - Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog. After the first dance, guests hit the dance floor and danced all night. Overall, it was a beautiful, classic, and playful wedding which truly reflected the personalities of Melanie and Joe!
