Natacha and Victor: Peacock and Silver at Holy Trinity Anglican Church and the Hyatt Regency

 Can we talk about the two happiest, luckiest kids in the USA? 
That would be Natacha and Victor. 
Another gorgeous couple that attended the Hyatt Wedding Festivals.  After attending the show and seeing our booth, they set up their "Getting to Know You" session.
Then Natacha told me the great news- at the show, they won the Grand Prize!  That year, it was "the Hyatt Reception".  The couple won $3500 off their reception at the Hyatt.  That was all that they had booked, and Natacha already had her gorgeous one shoulder gown.
Natacha and Victor had met during school in Miami.  Victor went overseas to serve our country while Natacha continued with her studies.  When he got home, they came up to visit family in South Carolina, and decided to call it home for a while. 
Natacha told us that she loved bling, and wanted to use silver and navy with peacock feather accents.  They loved the idea of a church for the wedding, wanted to make sure that they had a plated dinner and open bar for their out of town guests, and wanted great music. 

Black tie was the attire of choice for the occasion.  Natacha let the bridesmaids choose what style gown they wanted to wear as long as it was navy chiffon and by a particular designer.  Gents donned tuxedos with black bow ties.  White and ivory blooms popped against the dark tones and showed off the crystal and peacock feather accents.
Guests were shuttled by trolley from the Hyatt the day of the wedding to Holy Trinity Anglican Church.  A white N and V wreath hung on the red doors of the church.  Ivory shimmering paper with navy script and peacock feather in the seam made up the program.  Rahab Hackett played the harp while Natacha was escorted down the aisle by her mother. 
We enlisted Marshall Graham and Justin Robinson to make sure the memories lasted.  DJ Jamie Blair was on music once he got approval from Victor's disc jockeying groomsman.

After the ceremony, Natacha and Victor's guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Hyatt's lobby and the newlyweds hitched a ride in a vintage Packard.  After a lively introduction, guests could take in the scenery- blue up lighting around the perimeter of the room, crystals dripping from the centerpieces, silver satin napkins, menu cards and place cards on shimmering paper, and silver chargers.  Peacock feathers were tucked into the napkins and the centerpieces.  Navy crinkle taffeta linens covered the round and square tables with silver chivari chairs and silver satin napkins at each place setting.

The cake was even adorned with crystals thanks to Susan at Couture Cakes.  Natacha loves sweets, so there was a sweets table prepared with all sorts of treats, including cake pops and donut holes.  When guests wanted to take a break from dancing, then they could get away and take a trip to the photo booth.  At the end of the day (literally, the reception ended at midnight) we sent the happy couple off to the elevator to their suite.  Guests left with silver luggage tags,photo strips, sore feet, full bellies, and happy hearts.
