Urban Dinner Party

I love when we have clients that come to us for assistance with events other than weddings, especially small intimate get togethers.  Working with Sarah & Neil was a blast.  We brought in a custom table and chairs just to accommodate this fabulous multi course meal dinner party.  Sarah is one stellar chef!

Loved the antler centerpiece that Sharon our fabulous floral deisgner created!

 Hope you enjoy the Photos that the very lovely Kerri from Mary Wyar Photography captured! I spy chalkboard chanrgers and votives!

Pantone Color of the Year for 2014 – Radiant Orchid!

Radiant Orchid

 

Day 1 of the 2014 Designer Challenge came with strategic selections of images that we wanted to portray as a vintage radiant orchid wedding. We decided to choose the above images for the following reasons. The bouquet that was chosen shows the radiant orchid that we were striving for in many different tones and a variety of beautiful flowers. We admire the above table setting because the tall vase with flowers blooming over the top set off the look of the overall setting. The table also shows wine glasses with radiant orchid napkins that stand tall and bring the whole piece together. Above we displayed creative decoration tags that show inspirational quotes and a farewell from the bride and groom that guests can take with them. The wedding cake brings elegance and a vintage look that will make heads turn to admire its stature. The ladder is used to display various flowers and a mirror to show the dinner menu in a creative, vintage style. We decided to choose the wedding dress because it’s a classical white dress, but it spiced up with the radiant orchid crinoline. Finally, we chose this style of wedding invitation because it is unique with it’s wooden look, as well as, portraying the vintage theme in advance to the guests of the wedding.

Creech-Cross Wedding 5.18.13



 It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Melissa and Brad Cross!  Their wedding was a fantastic one to kick off the 2013 wedding season!

It was so fun watching Melissa’s vision come to life.  Melissa envisioned a fresh, simple, bright and laid back event.  Melissa and Brad had decided on Stone Oak Country Club as the venue for their reception and after 1 site visit and hearing her visions we decided that their grounds would be the perfect backdrop for their nuptials.

From Concept to completion enjoy the photos as you see their vision come to life.

Our vision: Moodboard to reflect our design direction and inspirations

Love the Chalkboard signage

Hanging arrangements on shepherds hooks continued with the simple garden feel

I have to say, we have the best florist! Sharon did a fantastic job with flowers, the bouquets looked amazing! each one was a little different and more unique than the next.

As a surprise for the bride and groom we decorated the patio area with paper lanterns in her color scheme.

One of my favorite parts of the design was the escort card wall.  We had Ribbon, crystals and hanging glass spheres with floating candles and flowers that the coordinating escort cards were attached to.  It served as a great focal point as well as a wall divider, not to mention beautiful photo!

Faith Love and Marriage October 6th 2012

Mr. & Mrs. Jeremy & Natalie Macke gave us the
pleasure of helping them through every aspect of their wedding as Full Planning
Clients. When we first met Natalie and her mother Monica they wanted to go over
the details of our contract very carefully, which was a good sign for us. We
knew right away that this was going to be a client who would
communicate to us exactly what they want and with that, we would be able to
guide them to the wedding of their dreams. Natalie is honest, humble and
beautiful inside and out, which made working for her and Jeremy not only
pleasurable but an honor. Since Faith is the cornerstone of their lives, we
wanted to make sure that guests felt that presence throughout the wedding. When looking through the photos below notice that Natalie and Jeremy are not just posing they are praying. You will see details such as crosses, bibles and tables named after bible verses. Our classic conservative couple used a color palate blending neutral champagnes with hues of greys then added an elegant touch of purples which we felt paired beautifully with the Toledo Country Clubs interior. From concept to completion you can see how we captured Natalie’s soft kind nature, Jeremy’s consistent commitment to her and their shared love for the outdoors all while telling their story of Faith Love & Marriage.
