Creating a southern garden, Wayne Gurnick adorned a canopy of magnolia with fragrant gardenias and an aisle to match, complemented by the bride and her bouquet of all white gardenias. Inside the ballroom, Wayne and team decorated tables with luxurious custom linens accented with silver embroidered, beaded organza overlays and coordinated seat back covers. Tabletops adorned with centerpieces of royalty and black magic roses on elegant silver candelabras and column candles with Italian lace accents.
During the reception, the newlyweds conducted an emotional 20-minute address to their guests, making mention of every person in attendance. Generally considered a wedding no-no in Wayne’s book, yet in this instance, an experience that proved incredibly emotional and appropriate—a truly amazing moment.
