Town and Country


The rolling hills surrounding  Southpointe Country Club provided the perfect backdrop for this couple’s big day, which also happened to be the 5 year anniversary from their first date.  The country club, breathtakingly beautiful on its own, was transformed into a haven representing Brandy and Scott’s favorite hobbies and interests.  With a color scheme of riveria blue, sage green, champagne, and ivory, along with table’s named after well-known ski resorts and golf courses around the country, we were able to showcase Scott’s love of golf and Brandy’s avid skiing background.   The escort cards, coordinating with the table names, helped to lead guests to their destination for the evening.  On the escort table sat a gorgeous ice sculpture of a tall vase with an elaborate floral arrangement.  Gold Chiavari chairs complete with a perfectly placed white bow offered a charming touch that helped to tie the details together flawlessly.   Luscious flowers were placed throughout the ballroom, helping to create a romantic ambience along with the soft up lighting in the corners of the room.  Before entering the ballroom, guests enjoyed a poolside cocktail hour, complete with color-changing orbs floating in the water.   Trends to Traditions Event Coordinator said: “The days leading up to their wedding were met with a little bit of hesitation and uncertainty regarding the weather, and how this would mix with their outdoor, poolside cocktail hour and golf course landscape for photographs. But the event went off without a hitch, and Brandy and Scott even had a beautiful photo opp with a double rainbow. In my years with Trends to Traditions, I have never seen a rainbow on a wedding day, let alone a double one, that was so prominent and complete.  With everything said and done, Brandy and Scott’s wedding was one of the most beautiful events I have had the pleasure of working on, and their love for each other was incredibly obvious to all who attended and worked that evening. The crowd was very lively, leading to a packed dance floor for most of the evening-something I always attribute to a good time at a wedding! All in all, Brandy and Scott are a great couple, and I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to help make their vision a reality.”

And finally, special thanks to Heather from Weddings by Heather, for her wonderful photo’s!
