Justine + Renato tied the knot at The RiverRoom on Saturday, July 10, 2015. The ceremony was held on the deck of The RiverRoom and they had 70 of their closest friends and family members there to witness the marriage. The bridal party was lined up against the historic brick J.W. Brooks building right before the ceremony. The guests sat in white resin chairs lining the the aisle.
Knot Too Shabby Events was hired for the month of coordination. The tables had either a blue or oyster linen on it, as the colors alternated throughout the event space. The napkins were white and had a Mad Lib on top of each place setting. The floral centerpieces were assembled by KTSE based on the bride's design. Eco Chic Blossoms did the beautiful bouquets, as well as the boutonnieres. The blue linen tables had white hydrangea and coral rose floral centerpieces while the white linen tables had black lanterns with candles and coral rose petals inside of them.
After the ceremony, DJ Wilmington invited all of the guests inside to celebrate the newly married couple. DJ Wilmington then introduced the bridal party into the reception, where there was an open bar for guests to enjoy bottled beer, wine, champagne and two signature liquor drinks. After the introductions, Justine + Renato had a choreographed dance to "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran. Their first dance was so magical and heart warming. After their first dance, the father of the bride shared a blessing. Bon Appetit Catering then invited guests to enjoy a tasty buffet style dinner. After dinner, the three-tier ombre wedding cake from Creative Cake Design by Tammy Hodge was served.
Justine + Renato danced the night away with their family and friends. They had a gorgeous bubble send off. They are such a beautiful couple and we are so blessed to have been a part of their special day. Congratulations Justine + Renato - may you two have a life full of happiness and everlasting love!
Justine's WeddingWire Review:
"Melissa was amazing! She is friendly and easy to work with, and she listens to your ideas and what you want. She was very accessible so I could always count on hearing from her when I had questions or concerns. The day of the wedding and reception went so smoothly that I didn't notice any problems come up at all, which means she did her job! :) I also asked her to decorate the space with the supplies I provided. I had a general idea of what I wanted the space to look like, but asked her to just "make it look good" and when I saw the space, it looked wonderful. So whether you know exactly how you want everything set up, or you want to trust the styling to your planner, Melissa is a great choice for both. I would easily trust her again with another event!"

Favorite Wedding Moment:
Seeing Renato's face when he saw Justine for the first time. Renato was very involved throughout the planning process and it was so sweet to watch him as he saw his stunning bride walk down the aisle. I'm sure it was more moving to him than he imagined it would be.
