Angie and Tom: A Citrus Wonderland

The staff at Antonia Christianson Events has had the immense honor of working with Angie and Tom for the last 18 months and finally last month we were honored to coordinate their much anticipated wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at The Westin in Virginia Beach and everything looked beautiful! The ceremony was a winter wonderland in the middle of June, while the reception was full of summer with a fun lemon-lime theme. Daevid's of Norfolk did an amazing job capturing the two themes with his always fabulous floral arrangements in both the ceremony site and reception room. The lemon-lime wedding cake and the Rolex Watch groom's cake were created by the very talented Emily Patti of Patti Cakes.

Angie kept the vibe of the event fun from the moment that guests sat down to wait for their ceremony to begin. Guests were greeted by the local beach favorite Jesse Chong (and of course his fantastic guitar skills) and also a video montage of clips from the couples favorite movies (Sarah Jessica Parker played Angie, so FUN!), which played before the wedding party walked down the aisle. It was a great way to show guests their love of movies that they both share. To carry out the movie theme, there was a popcorn and DVD bar featuring popcorn flavors like Mimosa and Margarita and Tom and Angie's favorite movies (What wedding is complete without a popcorn and movie bar?). At the end of the night, a donut and milk bar was set up for guests to grab something sweet on their way out. Every detail was carried through perfectly and we are so happy for Angie and Tom!

A few of our favorite details/moments of the night:
1. Roger Cruz (from Astro Entertainment) had the crowd moving and shaking all night! He is always a guest Favorite!! But his dance floor and the entire event ambiance would not have been complete without the work for Pike Media Resource!

2. BBJ Linen, one of our favorite national linen companies, completely handmade the linens for this reception. We alternated yellow, white and green custom designed table caps on the round and square reception tables.

3. Angie even put a cute note on all of the menu cards letting the guests know that "they should not go hungry at this wedding". From Tomato Soup Shooters to Oyster Po Boy sandwiches Angie thought of every guests favorite food...they even served Doumar's famous icecream cones filled with lime sorbet. (brought out on absolutely adorable pizza peels).

4. Each guest not only received a favor...they received a gift bag full of goodies to take with them. Angie and Tom took extreme pleasure in making sure their guests knew that the happy couple were honored to have each guest at the wedding...just as their guests were honored to take part in their special day.

Finally: Our favorite Memory. Angie and Tom did an Antonia Christianson Events First...they lead the processional down the aisle and their bridal party followed behind. LOVED IT!

The photographer, Scott Hayne, shot these amazing images of the wedding!

Below are our two favorite images of the night...The brides sister and the grooms daughter enjoying themselves in the lounge right off of the dance floor...And the cake illuminated so beautifully passed the white dance floor!
