I heart today's real wedding. It's a really lovely distraction from the outdoor weddings that we feature (and I love outdoor affairs in a BIG way). There is just something so utterly romantic about getting married in a crisp, white loft that has been decked out with candles, whites and an intimate collection of friends and family.
And yet, just when you think that it's all about the style, all about the chic...there is that bit of handmade charm that EVERY wedding needs to feel complete!
As a quick little sidenote, Laura loved the details so much that she launched her own event design company specializing in the finishing touches that turn a pretty wedding into a spectacular one! Definitely check out her new adventure, Make Merry Event Design Services.
A Bit More From Laura...
We served three kinds of really fabulous cupcakes and THE best banana pudding I've ever had, period, all from Sugar Sweet Sunshine. Our caterer Yen Ngo of Real Food Catering, added macaroons and meringues to round out the dessert table.
We gathered wedding photos of our family and friends, printed them in black & white, and hung them from champagne and cream colored ribbons accented by hanging votives (our tribute to them as inspirations for our marriage).
Oh also, we followed the DIY project you posted from Kathleen - the hot chocolate and marshmallow bags. And it was a total family effort: cards printed by me, bags and hot chocolate purchase and put together by my mother, sewn by my aunt, and molasses cookies (family special recipe) added by my mother-in-law. We left these at the hotel for our out-of-town guests and also brought some to the wedding to give away to the others.
