We got the call from Sarabeth Quattlebaum to meet with Emily and Shelby about their wedding reception!
Emily and Shelby were all about the party and we could tell! They are OSU alumni who wanted to make sure the party was on…
Sarabeth Quattlebaum of Sarabeth Events was their wedding planner and she did a wonderful job of design, planning and transforming the Top of the Town room at the Fort Worth Club for their reception. The room looked amazing with custom linens, floral from Marian Moskalik of Antebellum Design, lounge furniture from Sonia Dominguez of DFW Lounge Rentals and lighting from yours truly.
Amy Karp and the crew of Amy Karp Photography were the photographers and it’s our thanks to Amy for giving us the pictures to post here. We love us some Amy.
All right, first up! Let’s get these people introduced. Tonight’s lineup included bringing in all the bridesmaids as the “Bride’s Team”. Here were are, individually announcing all the lovely ladies.
The groomsmen received equal treatment. Here are all of the boys in the “Groom’s Team”, putting on a show as we call them out.
Can you tell Emily was ready to party? Here they come to the dance floor lined with all their adoring crowd. Sit down at one of my weddings? Never.
The end of the first dance complete with Shelby’s mad dance skills.
Dad takes a twirl next. Two minutes of a nice prim and proper dance and then we bust out into medley of rap and top 40.
Does dad look worried? He’s the ham that taught Emily how to be one. Note the custom monogram on the dance floor. Sarabeth gave us the design that was created for the invitation and we were able to duplicate it.
Happy mama dancing with her baby boy. Yes, he’s taller than her, but Shelby is still her baby. Moms understand.
After dinner, all were ready. A little prompting and everyone gets out there. When a wedding is run properly, you don’t have to worry if people will dance.
Later on, we got to see more of dad’s dance skills. A little birdie told me that he knew how to “clog”, so we put on the appropriate music and witnessed greatness.
You know you make we wanna SHOUT!
Backwards cap can mean only one thing: frightened white people. Here the boys teach us out to dougie.
Emily brought it too!
Sorority sisters being girlie. Cannot forget the sorority song.
Bouquet toss with dramatic lighting.
Garter toss with drunk cowboy.
Yep, he won. With arms that long, he had to.
What a good looking couple! Emily and Shelby, thanks for letting me help with your day!
And again, here I am downstairs helping make sure everyone made enough noise as we wished these two off to an awaiting carriage.
Thank you, Sarabeth for giving me the opportunity to help!
