As I said before, this wedding is ALL about the pretty. The perfect little details that made the wedding absolutely lovely. The bright green against the stark white is shockingly perfect and with the elegance of the muted gray…perfection.
My good friend and baker extraordinaire, Jenny DeMartini of Sweet Cakes Atlanta, had yet to do cupcakes for a wedding. So when we told her we wanted them, and we wanted her to design them however she wanted, she came through with mini chocolate, buttercream and carrot cake masterpieces that perfectly captured the fresh, eclectic look of our décor. And, to my delight, sparrow cake toppers for our mini-cake. Our guests are still raving about the delish little suckers.
We brought in Geri Sims Productions to create a light, airy, fresh setting. The metal structure where we’d have the ceremony was rusty and weathered, so she softened it up with lots of billowing sheers and strings of crystal that hung from the trees above. We hung crisp white paper lanterns above white garden chairs.
Inside, the space was large and open, so we created little vignettes to make it feel comfortable and inviting. Since it was our gallery for the day, we lined the front walls with metal zip lines from Ikea and hung our tribute to our family members. So as guests enjoyed cocktail hour, they could mill around and look at pictures old and recent of the grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins who helped make us who we are today.
Another cute touch…the save-the-dates were flipbooks, with little animated versions of jet-packing Andy and cartwheeling me pulling down a sign that read our date to be saved.
So much more to come!
