Our first flashing wedding.
Gabby and Matthew's Wedding at The Wynfrey Hyatt Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama this past weekend was one I won't soon forget. In fact, this wedding was The FlashBar's first booked wedding soon after we launched in Birmingham in October 2016. Needless to say, we've been planning and preparing for this day for months and it was well worth the wait.
The reception area was simply majestic, straight from a dreamy mansion created by the amazingly talented team at M. Elizabeth Events. All 400 plus guests gathered in the cocktail hour area around the beautiful white circular bar with servers handing out libations of all kinds. The walls were draped with tall white linen, washed with subtle blue up lights. This was a teaser for what everyone was about to experience in the main ballroom. A monogram gobo lighting up the pearly white dance floor and beautiful hydrangeas adorned every table.
After the salads were set, guests were ushered into the main ballroom for dinner where they would soon be greeted by Gabby and Matthew to begin their first dance. The AZ IZZ Band really turned things up after cake by Barb's Cakes was served and kept the energy high.
The celebration lasted well into the night with guests coming back, again and again, to get their photo taken with friends, family, and even a few self-portraits at The FlashBar. Gabby and Matthew weighed in on their monogram inspired photo layout and touch screen on The FlashBar to make it uniquely theirs. This touch screen design added to the cohesiveness of the event aesthetics and makes for a truly one-of-a-kind booth experience. By request, we even created fresh new props including their hashtag #CheersToTheCondes, their initials, and even a special surprise for Gabby - her Chi Omega sorority letters for her and her sisters to enjoy.
Gabby and Matthew, we wish you all the best and raise our glass to many decades of abundant happiness. Cheers!
