Audrey and Juris were married earlier this year out in Las Vegas, and decided to have their reception at their beautiful home in historic Winter Park, Florida. Wanting to do something a bit different, they chose a 1920’s Great Gatsby themed After-Party.
Lisa Adams of The Event Chicks did an awesome job coordinating all of the amazing entertainment and details of the event.
The bride dazzled in a vintage black gown, paired with these amazing Louis Vuitton heels, while the groom channeled his inner boot-legger and sported a black suit with wing tips.
Attendee’s received the royal treatment with valet services provided by Elite Parking and entering into the festivities on a red carpet.
The couple rode in on a 1930 Packard 734 Speedster Runabout to the cheers of guests adorned in all the Flapper Era best featuring feathered headpieces, fringed gowns and vintage details. The gentlemen looked devilishly handsome sporting era based suits and wing tips.
AFX Music took us back in time with their smooth jazz styling and crooning vocals to the 1920’s classics of the Big Band Era. Their talented lead singer belted tune after tune, even transitioning into current pop chart favorites.
Juris (pronounced Your-ee) appeared on the dance floor through the magical talents of Illusionist Brandon Smith, who also performed specialized magic tricks through out the evening for the wedding couple and their guests.
Gloved servers bearing silver plated trays mingled throughout the yard, enticing guests with their mouth watering appetizers. The talented Chef Sam of Royalty Catering delivered an incredible buffet meal, featuring an ice sculpture, elegantly carved food art, a mashed potato bar, along with several carving stations.
A caged White Tiger and a White Arctic Fox lounged Great Gatsby style poolside, while a graceful Mermaid lured guests to the pool with her siren song and stunning aquatic maneuvers. A juggler tossed LED lit pins high into the air, while a hula hoop artist sashayed her way between tables and guests. As the sun dipped below the horizon, an aerialist spun high above the ground, mesmerizing on-lookers with her graceful moves.
Located inside the couple’s backyard movie theater, the talented Vince Santilli treated guests to LED time lapse images which he printed off as a keepsake of the event for each participant.
A stunning Gold and Black cake adorned with white feathers and fondant pearls was cut to the well wishes of friends and family, and served as the pièce de ré·sis·tance of the evening.
Audrey and Juris’ Roaring 20’s Great Gatsby theme reception was a non-stop, whirlwind of activity until the final notes from the band faded off into the night.
Best wishes to Audrey & Juris ! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and love.
I hope you enjoy some images from their amazing night.
