A 25th Wedding Anniversary is a momentous occasion for every couple. After a quarter of a century together there is much to reflect on and celebrate. Some couples choose to have a quiet celebration with just the two of them and a bottle of wine to get the memories flowing and others, like David and Judy Light, can’t resist a big party!
It was so nice to have David, Judy and 120 of their closest friends and family aboard the RegentSea for an evening of dinner, drinks, dancing, roasts and toasts. Especially because David and Judy are our neighbors – they live in a condo right in the Marina!
The RegentSea looked elegant that night; all decked out in silver and black. David and Judy rented custom linens in the traditional 25th Anniversary color, silver. They chose black as the accent color and used it for the chair coverings and napkins, which made for a classic color palette. For their centerpieces they worked with our in-house florist, Bill, to create an arrangement of bright, orange gerbera daisies and hot pink roses that injected color into the room and showcased their vibrant personalities – 25 years and counting!
Throughout the night friends and family, who had flown in from all over for the celebration, shared stories about the couple and enjoyed a slideshow that played continuously with pictures of David and Judy over the past 25 years. Tip: To make your anniversary party more meaningful incorporate your wedding photos into the décor, or make a slideshow. You could also relive your 1st dance, play your wedding song, or order a cake that is a replica of your original wedding cake.
David, Judy and their friends and family love to dance and they rocked the boat all night long. The couple opened up the dance floor with a lively, swing song, “In the Mood” by the Glen Miller Band. Their romantic dance got all of the guests in the mood too – to dance the night away that is. You can check out some videos of guests dancing to classics from the big band era here.
