We first introduced the couple and their engagement story with you in April of this year, and we are excited to congratulate the couple on their marriage and their wedding day on July 3rd 2011. If you missed our post "On the road to I Do' Melissa & Gavin", Click here to check it out!
Melissa is a DIY bride all the way, she arrived at The Palms Pavilion and started decorating at 05:45 a.m on the day of her wedding!
Thinking ahead, Melissa did much of the work before hand such as folding the napkins, creating the programs, and creating personal touches like her picture board featuring many pictures of her and Gavin.
Her table settings included brown table linens with pink runners, which matched her centerpieces that she also created herself. Square Glass Vases filled with glass beads and adorned with different variations of Gerbera Daisy's and Roses.
Melissa made her table number cards and her programs, she was a busy girl!
The lovely head table!
It was a very warm day, but The Palms Pavilion made a beautiful backdrop for Melissa & Gavin's Big Day.
Gavin and his groomsmen had no problem entertaining themselves while his beautiful bride was getting ready!
The Bridesmaids looked lovely in their dresses which were made by the Bride's mother Cathy.
Okay we know you have been waiting to get a glimpse of the bride, and here she is getting ready.
The guests have all arrived and it is time for the ceremony to begin.
It's official everyone, these two have tied the knot!
The Wedding Cake was a beautiful 3 tier cake with paper lanterns hung in the corner, which gave a fun focal point to the room.
The Cocktail Hour gave couples a chance to take some fun and silly pictures in the Photobooth, and then the couple made their grand entrance. Mr. & Mrs Dorenzo walked down the stairs as husband and wife and they got a very warm welcome by all of their guests.
The Reception was kicked off with a great slide-show of pictures of the couple, from all of the their adorable baby pictures up to photos of them when they started dating and of course their engagement pictures. This couple has something magical and it shows!
After Dinner, the couple made their way around the room and visited with guests. These love birds were just glowing with happiness.
The evening continued with a playful cutting of the cake and of course dancing!
We want to wish these two the best and may they always smile as brightly as they did on this day!
