Sarah and Ryan: Pink and Old Fashioned at the Belton Depot

We met Sarah at the January Wedding Festivals show.  Actually, one of the photos for the Greenville News was of our booth with Sarah in it.  So, she is already kind of famous. 
Sarah contacted us right away.  You see, the wedding show was January 8th and Sarah and Ryan wanted to get married April 2nd.  12 weeks to plan a wedding from start to finish. 
If you follow B & R Events, you know that this is no problem.  We planned both Amy & Chris's big day and JoAnna & Chris's big day in both 5 weeks.  We are well versed in short term planning.
Sarah and Ryan chose the little-big town of Belton for the nuptials and celebration.  Sarah told me that she loved pink, black, and white as a color combination and wanted the wedding day to feel a little vintage.

Ryan wore a classic black tux, but his groomsmen had a different style.  No jackets for them.  Just the vest with the black tie and spectator shoes.

The ceremony took place at the Belton Depot, a 100 year old railway combined depot.  Renee Burroughs Design used  a combination of pink roses, apple blossoms, pearl sticks, and pale pink sweetheart roses for the floral and decor.


Sarah's dress was a stunning off white lace halter.  She carried pale pink sweetheart roses.  Her five bridesmaids wore classic strapless black dresses with pearl necklaces and peep-toe pumps.


275 of their closest family and friends watched Sarah and Ryan exchange vows.  Jonathan Whitten sang a solo and a musical quintet played the processional and recessional.


The reception was held on the depot's lawn.  B & R Events used prop chandelier's to dress up the tent, a combination of black and white base linens with damask overlays.  The centerpieces were a combination of different height cylinders, candle hurricanes etched in a damask pattern, and jeweled black and white rounded vases.


The caterer's table fit right in the inactive railroad tracks.  An assortment of southern appetizers was on the menu.





The Fortunate Sons  kept the music upbeat for the guests.  Their variety of sons ranged from current hits to oldies. 
For the non-dancing guests, Jacob Dean set up a photo booth in the depot.  The line was out the door the entire evening!  A hit!




Their amazing cake was designed and created by Holly' Cakes.  Sarah found the inspiration for their wedding cakes in a magazine, shared it with Holly, and they replicated it.    Cake wasn't the only sweet on the menu; the guests were also treated to a candy buffet (pictured in the collage).


Sarah and Ryan borrowed a classic roadster for their getaway.  They then took a two week honeymoon to Jamaica.
Congratulations Sarah and Ryan!
