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.

High Style, Low Stress Entertaining

TIP 1: Color for High Style!
Selecting one color for your party will give you high style and impact! Colors I love include red, yellow, orange, green and for a chic modern ‘Delano‘ look, think about all white! When you have selected your color, use it for table linen, lighting, floral, cocktail napkins, a specialty drink and more!

TIP 2: Gorgeous Floral!
When thinking about centerpieces, consider using a glass or crystal container for the base, especially if you have centerpieces with height. Glass and crystal will not only allow your floral to pop, it will also allow your dinner guests to engage in conversation easier and see each other across the table. Table conversation is an important aspect of any successful dinner party!

Jennifer Cummings of Beautiful Blooms by Jen does a wonderful job! Take a look at some of the modern and eye catching arrangements she has put together!

TIP 3: Yummie Delights!
Sweets are always a party delight! Take your favorite candies and arrange them in various glass containers. Put mini scoops in them so your guests can easily help themselves! Additionally, I like to purchase little clear cello bags and twist ties so guests can fill up a bag and take it home as a favor!


This is a great way to also bring color into your event, its also a fabulous way to involve your guests! Who doesnt love candy. Think of it as a little candy store at your event.

Elite Events offers full candy station displays!

TIP 4: Dress the Part!
Ask your guests to dress in theme! This gives you an abundance of free decor, plus it’s just fun! For an extra surprise, rent a rolling rack from you local rental company and costumes from a local costume shop and let those who thought they were going to get away with not dressing up select a costume as they enter the party! Additionally, I like to hand out numbers and hold a contest, giving out prizes for the most original, etc.

Do not forget to capture these wondeful moments of your event. Hire a photographer! Mary Wyar & Kim Koluch are amazing photographers, sure to tell the story of your event with their amazing photography!

TIP 5: Say Cheese!
Personalize your event by placing beautiful framed photos of family and friends in a prominent place. Not only do these become a conversation starter, they will bring back fabulous memories! Adorn the photos with candles. Candles are the most cost effective and romantic way to create an atmosphere for your party (you can never have too man
y!).
