Sabrina-inspired Garden Party Wedding by Reagan Events

Share This Post

As true hopeless romantics at heart, a match made in heaven was formed when Caroline and Ali, joined creative forces with Reagan Events.  Primarily drawing inspiration from the classic film Sabrina, Reagan Events dreamt up a glamorous yet effortless garden party with French undertones, which were so effortlessly supported by the breathtaking setting of RiverOaks – an instant departure to Europe in and of itself.

The décor was feminine, romantic, lush, and intimate. A canopy of dense twinkle lights swayed over long runs of tables, and collections of mono botanical arrangements adorned the tabletops, as though just gathered by the armful from a French flower market and placed in a vase. Greenery and florals grew along the trellis bar, escort display, and band backdrop, climbing to a crescendo of florals in an overhead installation full of lush blooms over the dance floor.

Some of the bride’s favorite details were the custom papers used throughout the paper suite.  Reagan Events commissioned Elizabeth Porcher Jones to paint various vignettes from RiverOaks.  From the iconic “party shack,” to the fountain, ducks, and even the bride’s beloved dog, Beau, Elizabeth painted the sweetest illustrations that were then turned into Caroline’s very own custom toile pattern.

Caroline and Ali, cut a pink wedding cake with an oversized fondant bow, after which Ali ceremoniously sabered champagne for their toast.  With cooler temps in the evening hours, the fire was roaring in the “party shack” where dessert was served. The guests partied the night away led by Quiana Parler and Friends, with a special fraternity song dedicated to the bride and performed by her father and his closest friends.  The evening concluded with a sparkler departure and surprise fireworks display.
