On July 17th 2010, Boston Celtic captain Paul Pierce married Julie Landrum at the Resort at Pelican Hill in an intimate ceremony.
The bride wore a Ines Di Santos dress, while her dapper groom chose a custom tux by Éléyee Tuxedo
The couple exchanged vows underneath a gazebo surrounded by white orchids, hydrangeas and roses
The cake was sitting on an handmade floral tablecloth and it's different layer included chocolate, red velvet and coconut layer
Let's start with the dress, choose a lace trumpet/mermaid style dress with some satin at the bottom. The neckline should be strapeless and sweetheart, then top it off with a semi cathedral train.
Here are some models that will give you a similar look

Style no. Lydia
For the ceremony think white, it doesn't have to be as grandiose as the Pierce's, go for simple and understated.
To save money instead of having 2-3 flowers at every row, chose to have 1 bouquet every other row.
Do not forget the chair covers, they add an air of drama to the place.
The reception should be different shade of red, you could add more candles than flowers to save on cost
The Pierce's wedding had two different areas for the cocktail and the after party, if it is an idea you would like to replicate on a budget. I would suggest using the same area for both hours. Have your planner bring out the candies while your guests are dinning. Also set up a bartender in that area and open the doors so your guests uderstand that they are welcome to go back there.
Happy Planning !!!
