Last Weekend- Sidney + Dane's Marriage Blessing

Last weekend was amazing, spectacular, exhausting, and so inspiring.  It was THE best way to creatively start the new year.  I got to design the most memorable experience for an incredible family who envisioned a cool, laid back, eclectic event.  Think grandmother's Kentucky Attic + Colorado lodge- mismatched china, taxidermy, Dutch master's inspired florals, antique furniture and props all accompanied by a total dream team. I must thank my mom, my Chris, and my gratefully unexpected New Years' Day flower unpackers Kat & Nick for working during a holiday week with no complaints! The set up for this wedding took a full four days and we are thankful to our friends at The Pointe who were so accommodating! It was really nice being able to roll my cart of flowers and props down the hall for a set up!  Just an FYI to you brides out there- draping a ceiling with fabric or garland takes a full day- it's laborious and requires a lot of material, so don't be as shocked as I was when I figured out how much it would cost :) 

Bekah is a master garland maker.  And, she's not afraid of heights.  She's my angel.  

This was their beautiful invitation suite designed by Hound Dog Press with calligraphy by Rachel Fisher.  The envelope liner was one of my favorite detail- William Morris' Strawberry Thief. It dictated a lot of the design for the wedding.

Last week's latte count- 16.  SIXTEEN

Props and flowers and props and flowers and props and flowers.

Beautiful, beautiful mismatched china from Lancaster Court, LLC.  They have settings for 300 guests and are available for rental as of this week! 

Our stunning bride, Sidney.  

After a little rest, recovery brunch, and some sleep, Whitney (thanks to her and Abby for some of these behind the scenes photos) and I spent Monday playing around with leftover blooms.  Can't wait to share the real images with you!
