It was our pleasure at Villa St. Clair to host Terrance and Quartermetra’s wedding on Saturday, October 10th, 2015. Their monochromatic blinged-out wedding was definitely one to remember! From the sequined table clothes to the jewels on each table, no part of their wedding went without sparkle!
Quartermetra’s sweetheart trumpet-style dress had bling all down the entire dress (to go along with the theme) and all of the 11 bridesmaids had shiny silver dresses. Terrance rocked a white tux while his groomsmen contrasted him in black tuxes.
The floral team at Villa St. Clair put together 11 bridesmaids bouquets made of white roses. Keeping with the monochromatic theme, the bride’s bouquet was made with white roses as well, but with sparkly embellishments in the center of each one. The centerpieces on the head table were made of white hydrangeas and roses, and sat on clear vases. The tables were decorated with silver table clothes and sequined overlays. The centerpieces on the guest tables were blingy silver candleholders surrounded by small silver votives with clear jewels scattered around to add to the sparkle.
After their outside garden ceremony, guests came inside to enjoy a chip bar along with cocktails while the bridal party took pictures at the beautiful front door of the facility. Guests then entered the ballroom, and the bridal party was announced shortly after that. A family-style meal of pork chops with pesto, rosemary citrus chicken breast, boursin cheese mashed potatoes, and grilled corn off the cob was served. A special feature that the Thompsons had at their wedding was the candy table. Cupcakes, and chocolatey treats were beautifully decorated on the table for guests to grab and enjoy! After dinner, all eyes turned to the stage where both the wedding cake and the groom’s cake were cut. First, Terrance’s best man and one of the groomsmen gave speeches congratulating the bride and groom, and then both of Quartermetra’s maids of honor gave a speech recounting how the bride and groom met and how their relationship evolved over the years.
The bride and groom kicked off the night with their romantic first dance, followed by a dance with Terrance and his mother. Quartermetra then shared a dance with her brothers and then the dance floor was open for all of the guests to get down! After a full night of dancing, the newlyweds exited as their guests threw flower petals in the air, closing the night perfectly.
October 10th was truly a night to be remembered and we, here at Villa St. Clair, wish the bride and groom a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
