I've been working with Hollie to plan this sweet couple's special day since last November, so we were excited to finally see how everything came together.
The wedding colors were pink and navy blue with accents of gold. The wedding ceremony was held in a local church chapel and a pipe and drape backdrop added a bit of color and glamour to the room.
The backdrop had an ivory drape which pink satin draping to pillars and candelabras to create an elegant swag. On either side of the backdrop we placed tables, one of which was for a unity candle and the other for a memorial table for the departed father of the groom.
We had monogram letters custom made and we put the first name initials on each door leading into the chapel. We placed their last name initial on the gift table in the lobby.
The reception was held at the gorgeous Muelebach Hotel, in the art deco hall that used to be hotel lobby in the 1920's. The centerpieces were in vintage cut glass vases that we found in antique shops. We had pink roses mixed with white hydrangea, sitting atop a champagne runner and tealight candles.
At the reception, the monogram letters were displayed along a buffet table near the entrance of the dining hall.
The cake was lovely and we had the opportunity to place the flowers and ribbon on it. The ribbon was tied in bows and then adorned with vintage pearl & diamond brooches.
This isn't the best picture, but it shows a little bit of the lovely reception.
In addition to the decor, we also provided the bridal party flowers.
The bride's bouquet was made of the largest magenta roses I've ever seen and they were stunning! Needless to say, it was huge and heavy and gorgeous! We added vintage buttons in amongst the roses and the finishing touch was a vintage brooch on the handle.
The bridesmaids' bouquets were made of light pink roses with diamond & pearl buttons mixed amongst the roses, also adorned with a brooch on the handle.
The men's boutonnieres were simple, just a white rose with a little leather leaf.
The mothers' and grandmothers' corsages were pink roses with a little diamond pearl button and gold ribbon.
Overall, it was a beautiful day, and because we'd been hired as day of coordinators, we were privileged to be able to spend it with the lovely bride and groom. Here is our main designer, Annalee, and the bride, Hollie, at the end of a long, happy day.
