What made the reception enjoyable?
Every choice that Claudia made, when it came to her wedding day (or should I say wedding weekend), was somehow both so unique and so classic. Instead of choosing to have a ceremony and then a traditional two hour reception, Claudia and Brian wanted to treat their guests to an even more elaborate celebration that spanned two days! After saying their vows at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, everyone headed over to The District located in downtown Pensacola, Florida where rooftop cocktails and yummy horderves were waiting, followed by an exceptional dinner. The atmosphere was so relaxing yet very chic. The following day, everyone gathered back downtown at Seville Quarter, a place everyone knows and loves, enjoying hours of dancing, drinks, and good food. It was a weekend for the books!
What was unique about the bride and groom’s attire?
I can’t say enough about how beautiful Claudia looked in her wedding gown. She didn’t choose to go to a boutique and pick something off the rack, but decided on something just as gorgeous but much more sentimental. Claudia wore a gown from 1962 that belonged to her Mamma’s best friend, Sarah Brown. I mean how exceptional is that? I didn’t think Claudia could top that but the next day she arrived in an extravagant pink dress, with flowers in her hair that you could just die for! She looked so stunning, I had no words and couldn’t stop telling her how beautiful she was all weekend.
Was the exit exciting and unique?
If you’re familiar with downtown Pensacola, most everyone knows of the famous Rosie O’Grady’s Fire truck that sits in front of Seville Quarter. Many selfies have been taken in front of that truck, but what you might not have seen is a beautiful bride in the sharpest pink dress throwing her bouquet off the back of it with her newly-wed husband! It was an exit to remember – sparklers, laughter, bride and groom, and a fire truck!!
