Congratulations Christine and Joe!

Last week was a time of family and celebration for Christine and Joe Trovato. Their friends and relatives gathered from New York and Missouri to spend Thanksgiving week with them on Pensacola Beach for the wedding celebration. On Saturday, the big day began with some pampering from Cassandra's Salon as the brother in law of the bride cooked breakfast for all of the ladies. The ceremony was held at Pensacola Beach Community Church and was a truly touching display of commitment. The reception that followed at Portofino was one big celebration complete with a lovely presentation by the daughter of the groom, heartwarming toasts from family members, and even a few spontaneous sing-a-longs (picture 60 of your closest friends belting out "Sweet Caroline" and "That's Amore!"). I can honestly say that I have never had more fun watching from the outside, but I truly could not help wanting to join in with this family. Their bond is immeasurable and will only continue to grow. Enjoy the photos below courtesy of the dynamic duo of Rae and Wesley Leytham.

This cake was created especially for the groom by the amazing Betty Weber. He loves Cadillacs, especially vintage ones and this one was huge surprise for him!

From Danielle:

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of coordinating the 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration of Dave and Wyona Babikow. All of the family got together at their daughter's home to thank their parents for the gift of love and amazing example they have been in their lives. It was truly a beautiful and emotional evening.

November Series: Blissful Fantasy!

This month we want to bring out your inner Cinderella- Glamour- Diva- Glitsy -Inner Bride! Every girl has a bit of (take out all negative connotations here and think Disney) PRINCESS in her. We know you secretly yearn for the white horse and carriage... or maybe a white hummer limo with a fully stocked champagne bar. Either way, your wedding is a chance to live out your fantasies. Always dreamed of being a Hollywood starlet?

Why not channel Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn on your wedding day? If you secretly pine for a winter wonderland complete with glittering snow, let me tell you that it is not impossible. We can make it snow in June and bring a blissful and beautiful white winter to the south. Maybe your fantasy is for each of your guests to be transported to Paris or Rome or Hawaii. You only have one wedding (well, some two or three) but regardless- whether this is your first wedding or your fifth- have faith that even in a tiny budget your fantasies can come true. With a little dreaming and a lot of creativity, the women at Bliss love to think BIG and bring a Bride's true wishes to life. This month, get dreaming! Post your wedding fantasies here. Visions of sugar plums are right around the corner....
