A little rain on wedding day is good luck! The weather cleared up for a surprising grand exit and gorgeous outdoor cocktail hour.
The groom and I plotted for this surprise butterfly release during the grand exit! I love that this photo captures the bride's reaction. I actually learned a lot too, as I tended to the butterflies the night before so they would stay cool and ready to fly!
The bride and groom rode in style in this vintage Bentley.
The reception room showcased a Tiffany blue and pink color palate. The stargazer lilies in the centerpieces and bouquets were a symbolic tribute to the groom and the bride's new last name!
Guests had a blast during the cocktail hour creating photo scenes with two large, ornate frames.
Some quick shots by me:
A mix of high and low centerpieces gives texture and visual interest to the room.
Weave design elements throughout your wedding to create a consistent theme and look. We used this border on the invitations, menu cards, programs, and escort cards. The couple's monogram was also on the programs, menu cards, and light display.
Don't forget a cake stand! It adds a little touch of extra elegance and height!
When the sun went down, the lights went up. We had Tiffany blue uplighting, two large monogram lights flanking the head table, and pattern gobo lights on the ceiling to create a dramatic evening look.
