I knew that you guys would be charmed by today's Science Themed Affair. It's hard not to fall in love with a palette that is so chic, with details that are so endearing, with personality and style to boot. Plus, the bride found tons of inspiration right here on Style Me Pretty so this one has a special place in my heart...
From the bride...
My husband and I both got our degrees in Biology and both work at different BioPharmaceutical companies. I really wanted to make our special day fun and elegant and most of all 'US.' So, I thought it would only be fitting to have a science themed wedding. I came up with 'DnA' which means Dexter n Angela, but is also a science term. We carried this from our Save the Dates onto our wedding day. My awesome wedding coordinator who also made our save the dates and invitations came up with a logo to add to everything paper.
We had two different centerpieces. Our first centerpiece were beakers and flasks filled with hydrangeas, ranunculus,and snap dragons. My florist filled the lab glassware with pink water. Our second centerpiece was reused from the ceremony to save money.
Instead of table numbers, we used elements from the periodic table. We had a gobo that was displayed on the dance floor with our DnA logo. We also had the oh so infamous candy bar. All pink candy! It was a huge hit. For the little ones, I did the DIY Project: Kid's Tins also featured on your blog! The tins included a coloring book, crayons, bubbles, "i only have eyes for you" 3-D glasses, and squishy rings that lit up. Out on the balcony, I wrapped white vellum paper around cylinders and put a candle in it. On the vellum paper I printed the DNA structure to keep the science theme going...nerdy, yes!
This day wouldn't have been possible without our wonderful vendors. First off, our day of wedding coordinator Melanie Montoya of Something Blue Weddings and owner of Fresh Invitation Studio really made the
whole day go so smoothly. Our photographers, Trailbrook really captured the day soo well!! We were on a budget, but went all out with pictures. Well worth every penny!!
Tessilk, our florist, really went the extra mile to add extra touches of flowers onto the cake and head table. All the flowers were amazing. Our Videographer, Daniel Boswell of dv Artisitry, was awesome! We also had a same day edit video which was shown towards the end of our reception and was just mind blowing.
So that's it folks! An adorable themed wedding pulled off with style. Pretty great, right!?
