FRIENDS Themed Wedding
A FRIENDS themed wedding?! Yes, that’s right. Dena + Aaron took their favorite ’90s TV show and turned it into a theme for their wedding. Being a ’90s kid myself, I absolutely fell in love with the idea of a F•R•I•E•N•D•S theme for their wedding. And when they told me they were making Rachel’s 8-layer Thanksgiving Trifle, I was completely in.
Dena and Aaron met as all good relationships start, at work. They both worked at the Rudy’s BBQ restaurant in College Station, Texas. They soon began dating and that lead straight to this wonderful night at the Astin Mansion near downtown Bryan, Texas.
The Astin Mansion was the perfect location for these two to promise their lives to each other. They had attended a formal during college that was hosted by the Astin Mansion as soon as they walked through the front doors Dena had told Aaron, “This is where we’re having our wedding.” Fast forward to April 2018 and that is exactly what they did.
They made a replica of Monica’s purple door complete with the little golden frame and everything. In addition to the purple door, there was so much more F•R•I•E•N•D•S themed décor. A custom “Central Perk” sign for the couple, an orange couch that got it’s well deserved attention all night, the colorful umbrellas and coffee mugs, and even Rachel’s 8-Layer Thanksgiving Trifle. They each took a heaping spoonful of trifle as they “cut the cake,” and then opened it up for any guest to come up and try it too. You better believe I did, and I’ve got to say, it wasn’t too bad, beef, onions, and all.
The beautiful and history Astin Mansion hosted as their venue and honeymoon suite – In addition to the Trifle they did have a wedding cake and many cupcakes, all deliciously made by Angelique Davis – An Italian dinner was catered by the College Station Johnny Carinos – Hair and Make-up was beautifully done by North Salon – Dixie DJ Service kept the party going all night with their DJ services – Luke’s Bartending also helped in keeping that party alive – And I was honored to be their Astin Mansion Wedding Photographer for the absolute best FRIENDS themed wedding for an amazing couple.
