Google+ Real Florida Wedding: Michael + Charlie, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

I loved the pops of blue from Part I of Michael + Charlie’s wedding, but the vibrant green accents at their reception make me fall even more in love. The centerpieces that decorated the tables were the work of Glenn Yee Designs and play off the name and colors of the reception venue, the Moore Building and Bamboo Garden. I love when couples throw something unexpected into the mix and these newlyweds did just that by choosing to go the untraditional—but super cute—route with Cake Pops! Another surprise? The visit paid to the groom by the Miami University mascot! Thanks again to Captured Photography for sharing!

Describe your wedding flowers: From Glenn Yee of Glenn Yee Designs: “Michael was very specific in her choice of flowers. She wanted them to reflect her modern style but still wanted the romance. We chose greens and whites for freshness and vibrancy. Green orchids balanced with the softness of hydrangeas. Roses, anemones, hyacinth and tulips created texture. She loved the uniqueness of green cymbidiums and the black eyes of the anemones. She is a modern but classic bride”
Describe your wedding cake: Our cake was not your traditional wedding cake. It was made up of individual cake pops arranged in tiers to look like a cake. The cake pops on the cake were key lime, in honor of my key lime pie at the proposal in Key West. The cake pop cake was quite awesome and a big hit at the wedding. We also had the cake pops in monogrammed cones served to our guests. These cake pops were red velvet, chocolate and vanilla cake.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The most memorable moment of the wedding day for me was seeing Charlie’s face when Sebastian, the mascot for Miami University, came out to surprise him. His face was priceless; it was such shock and surprise for Charlie, who is a huge fan. For the both of us, the reception was pretty memorable. From soft serve ice cream and the flipbooks to the band and then how beautifully the venue turned out made this night one of the most amazing times of my life.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We might be moving to North Carolina sometime next year. We’re also looking forward to having children and I am possibly going back to school to get my masters. There is so much to look forward to for the both of us but right now we are both loving being married.
