From Brklyn View PhotographyOn a perfect Summer day, Katherine and John were married along the East River at The Water Club in New York City. Their classic wedding was tied together with black and white stripes and pops of color. From their pale blush invitations, pink peony bouquets, bright coral bridesmaids dresses, black and white striped shoes and socks for their bridal party, no detail was too small to personalized for their wedding. Katherine looked gorgeous in her Anne Barge wedding gown that had cute bow detail on the front. Her mother handmade her wedding veil as her something “new” and she wore blue earrings from David Yurman for her something “blue”. John looked dapper in his classic black tuxedo and mustache printed suede loafers. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Katherine and John said their vows in front of a custom made, pink ombre, tissue paper, heart shaped centerpiece that was placed at the alter. The brides brother officiated the wedding and happily pronounced them husband and wife. On each guest chair, small bags of gold glitter confetti were waiting to be tossed at the newlyweds as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife. Black and white table runners and shades of pink candles decorated the reception room overlooking the water. The happy couple danced the night away and I’m so honored I could be part of their special day. Congratulations Katherine & John!!

Al Fresco Bridal Shower at San Ysidro Ranch

Any gathering of girlfriends is a perfect celebration in my book, but when it comes in the form of a lush, garden bridal shower styled to a T? Well, let’s just say we couldn’t share this beauty fast enough. Designed by Twine Events with calligraphy from Curliecue Designs, it’s a feminine twist on the al fresco luncheon, and Lavender & Twine captured every last bit. Enjoy!

From Twine EventsThe day before the wedding, the bride and her sister hosted a bridal shower luncheon. It was a time to gather all the girls, get them excited about the big day and say thank you for flying in and celebrating. San Ysidro Ranch is a magical little gem that holds pockets of spaces for you to get lost in. It is also where the wedding is going to be the next day, so it was a great idea to show off the Ranch to the gals. The wine cellar patio was perfect spot to host the shower luncheon. We played off the lush garden atmsophere with a garland runner and added pops of purple blooms (a color the bride loves).

A little indoor lounge area was created for any ladies to beat the heat. It was gorgeous, yet very sunny day but to these Texan ladies, it was perfect and not too hot at all. The food was served family style and integrated fresh vegetables and herbs from the Ranch’s personal garden. She also wanted to include pops of the unexpected and fun elements for the ladies.

While the luncheon was for the bride, the bride wanted to make sure her ladies were showered just as much. We created a flower station for the ladies to pick up a flower crown or hair clip to wear during the event. It was also a chance to make them feel girly and play dress up.To make them feel extra special, we set personalized ribbon calligraphy place cards for them to keep. The ladies even made fabulous bracelets out of them. It also helps it was one stylish group of ladies!

Autumn Backyard Virginia Wedding

Anything Karson Butler Events touches turns to instant wedding gold, and the proof is in the pudding. We’re talking a classic-yet-contemporary autumn “I do” with blooms by Sidra Forman and stationery handiwork from Meant To Be Calligraphy. It’s a celebration of two D.C. sweethearts – who met working the last presidential campaign! – and lucky for us the pretty from Amelia Johnson is just getting started. 

From Karson Butler… Sarah & John are as sweet as they come, and we were so honored to plan & design their East Coast wedding with their families. The couple met while working on the last presidential campaign and now reside in Washington, DC.

They were married at the LDS Temple followed by a reception at the bride’s parents house in McLean, Virginia. We loved designing an event space that would foster a true celebration of love and family. From an incredible infusion drink station, to comfort food stations, and mixed seating throughout the tent, we were so very honored to help with this very special day!
