A Wedding Out of Africa

This wedding took place in our Ballroom on September 23. The bride and groom live in Africa, and wanted that to be the theme for their wedding.

They used various cities in Africa as the table names, and they utilized the rich colors of Africa as the decor. The tablecloths were windowpane pintuck chocolate brown, and the sashes on the chairs were matching organza.

Even the cake had a unique look that carried their theme.

One of the unusual aspects of this wedding is that the bride and groom , Sarah and Robert, planned the whole thing from their home in Africa, utilizing primarily e-mail with our staff to accomplish all of this.

I hope you enjoy this unique wedding.
