From 718 Creative… To meet Margi and Andrew is to instantly fall in love with them! For months they planned the wedding of their dreams, but like many couples, when COVID hit, their dreams of celebrating with their family and friends had to be put on hold. Margi and Andrew had such great attitudes throughout the planning process, they were just happy to have each other. It was an incredibly smooth planning process despite having two dates because they were optimistic and reasonable all along the way.
Instead of completely giving up, they decided to celebrate their love with an intimate ceremony under the famous oak tree at The Houstonian Hotel. Surrounded by their dearest loved ones and thousands of twinkle lights, they said “I Do” and began their life as husband and wife. It was incredibly special and allowed them to begin their married life surrounded by their closest loved ones. But, Margi is always looking for a dance party, so as soon as it was safe, the party was back on! The custom floral print that adorned the dancefloor and band backdrop brought a new life to the historic ballroom.
The pops of color continued into the floral arrangements and brought the bride’s peppy personality to life! Manhattan kept the dance floor full all night, and as they say, “It was a Margi Party!!” And a dance party isn’t complete without a confetti cannon to end the night. Their second ceremony was filled with family and friends, complete with 12 ring bearers and flower girls, under the same historic oak tree they were officially wed under months before. No detail was overlooked, and The Essential Market completed the colorful palette with floral details on cocktail napkins to match their House Of Hough linens. Manhattan Band ended the night by leading the newlyweds out to “When the Saints Go Marching In”, as they walked under a flurry of rose petals into married life.
