The 50s Never Looked so Good!

As many of you know, we just completed filming the television show Platinum Weddings for the wedding weekend of Lauren and Kris who were married on 6/7/08 in Aventura, FL. I know many of you are anxious to see the wedding photos for that weekend and I do not have those yet, however I am giving you some teasers from their fabulous fifties diner/I Love Lucy theme rehearsal dinner that took place at the Antique Car Museum in Fort Lauderdale. We were thrilled to see many of the 120 guests dressed up in their best 50’s duds for the occassion. We decked out the museum with a classic soda fountain featuring malts, shakes, and floats which was adorned with nostalgic candy including candy cigarettes, buttons, and whirly pops. The tables we dressed in polka dot linens in black and white with bold teal napkins. The amazing floral design was done by our own Bruce Goldstein who used over 2,000 red carnations to make floral spheres that sat on top of tin cans and vintage Campbell’s Tomato Soup cans. The guests snacked on passed diner favorites such as grilled cheese, chicken fingers, and mini philly cheesesteak sandwhiches before dining on tv dinners in custom trays with the couples logo that includes truffled meatloaf or turkey with foie gras which added an upscale flair to the entree courses. For dessert the guests dined on apple pie ala mode and a delicious red velvet grooms cake that was shaped like a golf bag celebrating the groom’s career as a pro golfer and his sponsorship by Nike. During the night the guests enjoyed a photobooth, Lucy and Ricky impersonators, and old time songs played on an old fashion juke box. It was truly a majical event. We will keep everyone posted on when our episode of Platinum Weddings will air on the WE network and will also post wedding pictures very soon. A special thanks to Destination: Luv, which is a combination of Timco Photographers and Chris Plus Lynn Photography for the wonderful pictures and CA Catering for the amazing food and service which was top notch.
