Today we are spotlighting Ajay and Seema’s Engagement Party from October 2008 at the Hilton at Walt Disney World.
Ajay and Seema had wanted a very cool and sleek feel to their Engagement Party so we decided to go with a true South Beach look. A crisp white and aqua blue was the color scheme tied through the entire event.
Ajay had wanted the event to be a bit different from most. Upon arrival, all guests were treated as VIP’s, walking into the event down a red carpet and receiving a special VIP lanyard that was used to denote their seat assignment. Both the backdrop and the customized logo were designed by Ajay’s Brother-In-Law, Rupesh, AKA DJ Rup. We wanted to incorporate the entire event, including the cocktail hour and dinner, into the same Ballroom yet wanted to still make them seperate events. The guests walked in to the first 1/3 of the Ballroom, which was sectioned off by floor to ceiling white boile drapery and featured three lounge areas with with South Beach Style Cabanas and an extensive variety of hors d’ oeuvres. Once the cocktail hour wrapped, the drapery was opened and guests were allowed to enter the entire Ballroom. Seating in the Ballroom consisted of Round and Estate Tables with white table cloths, napkins and chair covers with aqua blue sashes. The centerpieces featured submersed orchids with the water dyed the same aqua blue as the chair sashes. The lighting package tied the room together with blue uplights.
