Behind the Scenes

The wedding season has kicked in and we're busy!!!! We snapped a few behind the scenes photos of things going on or that just made us giggle! Gena Martin, of Platinum Party Planning did an amazing job organizing this event! Gena had a great idea for the guest book. She commissioned Candace to paint a cupcake on a canvas. The guests initialed the canvas and dipped their thumbs into acrylic paint and made sprinkles!

Ocean Boulevard catered the event. They shucked oysters, had shrimp and grits, and ceviche for the cocktail hour. Dinner was served buffet style, and is always delicious!

I'm in love with these sweet treats! Shortbread cookies with goat cheese and sugary fruit!!!

Being the crazy animal loving gal that she is, Candace jumped on the dance floor to save a little slimer frog from getting squashed between dances!

The bride and groom got a little silly with the cake feeding and Gena was right there to wipe up the mess and keep the couple looking fresh!

Johnathan and Andrea are from Boston, and were so very thankful to Platinum Party Planning for handling their wedding needs while being states away. They called Gena to the dance floor and had a special toast just for her and her amazing team!
