Autumn and Antonio were married this past Sunday at the Duke Gardens. We were so worried about rain, but mother nature cooperated and gave us a beautiful day! Our friends, harpist Brittany Farrell and her flautist provided beautiful ceremony music. After the ceremony guests enjoyed Autumn and Antonio’s favorite drink, Jamaican Rum Punch with cute little sugar cane sticks. Yummy! Dinner was served by the always fabulous Catering Works, under the tent on the terrace of the Doris Duke Center. Autumn and Antonio have traveled all over the place and to make it part of their wedding. Each table was named after a place they had traveled together, accompanied with a photo and a traveler’s guide. Guest favors were personalized luggage tags hung on each chair. To finish off the look for dinner, we brought in gorgeous silver shantung linens from CE Rentals and the absolutely amazing team of Lyn and Michael from Fresh Affairs created florals that were to die for.
After dinner, guests moved into the Doris Duke Center for the dancing part of the evening, and let me tell you, they were awesome! My buddy, DJ Joe Bunn had the crowd dancing all night long. I have never seen the Cupid Shuffle look so good! And of course, the always wonderful Neil Boyd from Neil Boyd Photography provided all the amazing photographs. I don’t think we could have asked for a more photogenic couple. All in all, it was a great event, good food, beautiful decor, fabulous entertainment, and a wonderful couple. You can’t ask for anything better!
