Jackie and Andrew’s wedding at the National Museum of Women in the Arts was a favorite of ours. The November wedding reception was beautifully decorated with a variety of white and cream flowers by Philippa Tarrant including Jackie’s much-loved design details – the black tulle table runner and boxwood wall with flowers. The couple served signature cocktails, delicious cuisine and an almond flavored wedding cake with a coconut filling prepared by Occasions Caterers. The evening was full of fun with everyone dancing to music performed by The Source band. At the end of the night, guests received personalized Coca-Cola bottles printed with the words “Share a Coke with Jackie & Andrew” as wedding favors to commemorate Jackie and Andrew’s marriage.
