Earlier today, we brought you Elizabeth & Kevin's fantastic rehearsal dinner at The Ritz in Naples, Florida. Outdoor, brilliant lighting, lush and lovely florals from Petal Pushers and a few fire-eaters to boot!

Kevin and Lizzie met in the parking lot of a grocery store when she accidentally hit a bird with her car! All through their engagement, we joked about it, but when it came to their wedding, we used it as our inspiration. Originally, Lizzie wanted a "starry nights" theme.

Chuppah Petal Pushers Caplan Miller

This was a traditional Jewish wedding. The chuppah was completely covered in moss - it looked like a giant topiary! Then Petal Pushers added tons of gorgeousness to it with bunches and bunches of white flowers.

We used blueberry jelly beans to hold our escort cards and kept a theme throughout with the Elum Aviary stationery used as menu cards, table number and escort cards.

We also incorporated a piece of specialty glassware to carry on the blue theme at the dinner tables.


Our congratulations to Elizabeth & Kevin and a huge thank you to Courtney for showcasing so many of our Little Black Book members at this very special occasion!
