Live Up Your Date – Cinco De Mayo Wedding Day

Having a themed wedding?!

We LOVED working with Emily and Conner to celebrate their special “Cinco de Mayo” Wedding Day! They were married at A&M United Methodist Church and held the reception at the Celeste Ballroom in The Stella. When they chose their wedding date, they were eager to embrace the date and celebrate in full Fiesta style fashion!

We really appreciated how these two chose to be bold with their colors yet maintained a natural balance throughout. The Gold Chivari chairs brought in by Ashley & Co. paired well with the pop of color and floral centerpieces displayed around the Ballroom.  The Stella provided custom margaritas hand-selected by the couple themselves featuring a Grapefruit and Regular on the rocks along with traditional Cinco de Mayo food which included chips, queso and fajitas. Conner’s non-traditional groom’s cake rendered a fabulous milk and cookies bar and Emily’s love for Conner really came through in the over-sized Conner heads floating around the room! Sombreros, floral crowns and neon tambourines filled up The Stella and their guests never left the dance floor – partly due to the fact that Connor himself prepped a Dance Enthused playlist during the live band’s sets helping to drive the already vibrant energy in the room. Their departing gift for guests showed appreciation to their fellow Aggies with 12th Man Towels with a printed stamp of their wedding date.

What we loved most is this couple had FUN. From the very beginning to the end, you can see through these pictures that this day was completely about the love they had for each other and enjoying this moment with their guests. They embraced the Cinco de Mayo style while still keeping their desire for traditions present throughout the evening with select pieces and moments. Unique, creative and traditional all wrapped up in one! What more can a bride ask for?

Congratulations to you both Emily & Conner and we wish you a lifetime full of love, happiness and more themed parties! – Love & Hugs, The Ashley & Co. Team
