November 28 at the beautiful Delta King we had the opportunity to provide ambient lighting for Mike and Debra. These two wanted nothing but the best for their wedding and guests. This was a second marriage for both of them and you could tell they really found true love this time. They wanted everyone to feel how happy and in love they were by the atmosphere and ambience; they didn’t hold back.
We only provided services for the Ceremony which took place downstairs in the Mark Twain Salon. It is a beautiful, unique room on the bottom of the boat but it’s a little dark and is not uniform in it’s shape. It also has an air conditioning unit that is placed in the front of the room where the Ceremony was to take place. Mike and Debra wanted to add some soft ambient lighting to customize it to their colors while complimenting their chair covers and drapes but keep the uniqueness of the room. This room was transformed, it was intimate and full of all their closest family and friends. We did lighting while Mimi & Co. provided chair covers and drapes on the front wall to cover the un-uniformed room. It was a large wedding; between the two of them they have 10 kids! It will be a fun merge of two families. We didn’t provide services for the Reception which was in the Paddlewheel room but I wanted to add a few pictures of all the gorgeous linens by Mimi & Co. We love how they customize all their linens and the fun, funky ways they make linens talk to you. Here are their lighting pictures and a few from the reception:
It wasn’t too long ago we met Mike and Debra at the Delta King’s: Fall into your Wedding Plans Open House earlier this month. We were there with their photographer Andre and Irene with Eye Connoisseur, Jenny from the Delta King and Mimi & Co. They had already booked Eye Connoisseur, Jenny and Mimi & Co. but not lighting. We were able to show them what we could do for them while brainstorming with their whole team. We went over different ideas and ways to make the rooms pop.
A few shout outs to the awesome vendors who made this happen. Jenny with the Delta King is ALWAYS so amazing and willing to do all she can to help all her clients out. Along with the Delta King staff for making the delicious Hors d’oeuvres, serving them and setting up. Always pleasant! 🙂 We also had the chance to work with the hilarious and feisty Peggy Brown, Harpist. We have met her and heard wonderful things and she is so sweet and fun. She truly is a talented lady. She played for the Ceremony and the whole Reception which added to the feel of the day. Another first was Andre and Irene with Eye Connoisseur Photography. We have known them forever (it seems) but hadn’t had the opportunity to work with them until now. It was great to see the flawless way they communicated and helped each other. We saw a few engagement pictures and they just made Mike and Debra glow. We are excited to see the rest. Here’s a few more pictures of different colors of lighting:
