Beth and Peter's Bay 7 Wedding!

October 8, 2012

Beth and Peter were such a FUN couple to work with! They were married at the gorgeous Bay 7 this past September and it was the perfect location for the two of them. We were essentially given a blank slate to work with, which is very nice, so we were able to plan the classy, chic wedding that Beth had hoped for!

They were expecting a small guest count due to the fact that many guests were coming from overseas and around the country, so we planned to make Bay 7 look very intimate. We achieved this look by adding draping and various lighting elements, which created the perfect ambiance for the room.  The linens were fabulous- especially the sequined linens- LOVE! It truly turned out beautifully! Beth did want to incorporate a bit of modern elegance to the look, which is why we opted for the black and white color scheme, as well as include white furniture pieces. My favorite design element would have to be the furniture piece in the center of the space with the large flower arrangement, but the ceremony decor comes at a close second! The ceremony decor was absolutely stunning!

Beth and Peter lived in Texas during the planning process, so we did most of the planning over the phone and via email, but they truly trusted and valued our opinion and it made the planning process very relaxed and enjoyable. The couple and their guests had a great time dancing the night away, while eating delicious smore’s throughout the evening! I can’t say enough good things about this wedding and the couple!

Beth and Peter- thank you for choosing A Southern Soiree to help plan the details of the day! We wish you all the best! Take a look at the beautiful photos taken by Richard Barlow!
