Bright Mardi Gras Wedding Theme
When I walked into Amber’s Mardi Gras Wedding, a truly delighted looking gentleman embraced me in a warm hug. Already we were off to a truly New Orleans feel. He said welcome to our wedding…now what can I do for you? What a delightful way to be welcomed to a wedding. That should be a new standard at all events. I immediately knew it was going to be a day full of love, fun and joy…and it was. As it turned out, that was the Father of the Bride, and the entire family carried that same attitude of welcome and joy and it truly shone through the event.
Amber’s wedding was one of the most uniquely colorful and beautiful weddings that I’ve had a chance to be a part of. When we had spoken before the wedding she explained her theme and I was so excited to be chosen to film it. Not just for her unique decor (more on that later) but her amazing inclusion of the children.
The new Venue Seven was perfect for this event.
Most couples, especially parents, include their kids in the ceremony, ensuring that they get to feel part of the celebration as well. Often, after the ceremony the focus moves on to the traditional celebrations and the kids are included there. Amber wanted the evening to be a celebration for them too so she waited until she found the perfect venue to carry out her vision. At Venue 7 in North Fort Worth, Amber was able to provide the kids with a kid focused celebration of their own on the first level, while the traditional reception played on the 2nd level.
For a more rustic venue with a 2nd level option, visit this real wedding at Thistle Springs Ranch.
Amber asked if I could ensure that I got some coverage from the kids party downstairs. Not that I don’t love all of the traditional celebration that carries on in a traditional wedding, but who wouldn’t want to join a pajama party? Downstairs, their pajama party included tents, pizza, candy, personalized coloring books, games and movies. What a great way to celebrate, no tugging on ties or itchy party dresses or being told not to run.
Creole Catering by Kitchen King’s Catering
Upstairs, celebrating Jeremy’s New Orleans roots, the reception was in Mardi Gras style. Brightly colored pumpkins centered the tables with colorful Mardi Gras masks at each seat. Delicious Cajun food was served by Kitchen King’s Catering and a party that could only be provided by Amber and Jeremy’s friends and families carried on. I’m so thrilled I got to be a part of your day. Thank you so much!
