A Chic Red, White and Blue Affair
July 3, 2009

Basically, anything Hello! Lucky gets their hands on, I immediately fall in love with. This wedding isn't any different! From the PERFECT invitations and paper goods to the cute red, white and blue palette...every little detail is heaven!

From the girls at Hello! Lucky...For this affair, we did the Classic Cowboy design in Bluebell and Lucky Red which complemented the wedding's rustic Americana style. We created a custom band with a repeating Western star pattern in red to hold all the pieces together.

Maggie is a furniture designer/maker so the couple decided it would be fun to incorporate that into the details in a creative yet subtle way. Stacy McCain, the planner, asked Maggie if she had any wood scraps from the shop (piece that would likely get thrown away and that she would not be able to use for anything) which she did. The table numbers were created using the wood scraps, this also played into wanting to recycle and reuse. She also had some leftover materials which she constructed her escort card board from.

What screams Summer more than BBQ?!? The menu was fun and a nice change of pace from typical "wedding" food. The guests really enjoyed the feeling of a home cooked meal (Salmon, beef, chicken, vegetables, potatoes and sweet corn slaw). The cake was a citrus flavor with fresh berries served on top. This was a nice way to end the hot day with a refreshing and light dessert.

Mary Lois of Loop Flowers did a wonderful job of collecting various cups and containers to use for the centerpieces, this really spoke to our vintage/rustic feel for the wedding. Also keeping with the recycle and reuse idea Maggie collected vintage napkins so that each guest had one at their place setting. She tied ribbon with each guests name, this worked as their place card.
