From Suzi of Q Weddings... Shelly and David had an intimate wedding in their own backyard, but they still wanted an event with amazing decor for their family and friends.  The lush pink, ivory and coral florals were the highlight of this wedding, along with the beautifully presented Texas comfort food. The ceremony was poolside and serenaded by a string quartet. Cocktails were served as the sun was setting. While guests were enjoying champagne cocktails with a touch of fresh cream, the coordinator and her crew created an elegant dinner atmosphere with bamboo Chivari chairs, long European-style wood tables, decorated with silver vases, silver ornate carved boxes, candleabras, orchids, roses and hydrangeas. Gold-rimmed chargers were placed at every setting, along with one pink rose.

When Shelly and David got married, they also united their two families, bringing together five children. Shelly's son carried a wood placard that announced her entrance, as well as when she was allowed to kiss David at the end of the ceremony. The three girls each wore vibrant blue dresses and each had their own personalized bouquet of coral and pink-colored flowers. The menu included roasted and carrot and sweet potato enchiladas with a red pepper poblano Crema with Cotija cheese and pepitas, gourmet sliders, gourmet chicken-fried steak, plus beignets as favors to honor Shelly's New Orleans heritage.
