Crystal and David’s wedding took place at White Point Beach Resort, so we made sure not to burn the place down. The day was a beautiful one with just the right temperature. With the sun shining we were able to get photos on the beach as they had hoped and not have to worry too much about getting Crystal’s dress all mucked up. We made our way around the resort near the cabins for photos and we spoke a bit about their reception. I had heard there was going to be a Harry Potter theme, but I didn’t really know what that meant.
When I asked how she would describe their wedding, Crystal said it was “Harry Potter meets the beach”. Now, you might be wondering, ‘what does that mean?’ So let me explain; their ceremony was on the lawn at the main lodge with the beach and ocean in the background, while the reception was styled like the Great Hall at Hogwarts, therefore Beach, meet Harry Potter, Mr. Potter, meet the Beach. Of course, White Point is not nearly as awesome looking as Hogwarts, and candles can’t magically float in the air to illuminate the room, so some adjustments had to be made. The girls at Elegant Productions hung something like 150 candles from the ceiling, while having 4 long tables for guests, each with a coat of arms for the various ‘Houses’ of Hogwarts hanging above the table. I was seated at Gryffindor. How we were assigned our seats was pretty cool too, as they had a sorting hat at a table and around the hat, lay wands for each guest with our names attached. The wands would light up and make a magical noise (you know what I mean) when you pressed a button. Not only the kids, but everyone, enjoyed the wands, myself included. We took those wands outside at twilight to have a bit of fun. Crystal and David had a bit of a battle of their powers in the wood pile with the help of Katelyn, Hillary, and their sparklers. Despite a few bug bites for all of us, I think the results turned out quite well and we sure did have fun.
It was great to be a part of Crystal and David’s celebration with their closest friends, family, and of course, their dogs :)
