It's funny when I think about my color scheme for my wedding because I am always drawn to bright colors, yet I chose very neutral and soft tones for all of my decor. The tent was draped in ivory fabric with peach lighting, crystal chandeliers and a white carpet surrounding the extra large dance floor big enough for our 460 guests. I chose lucite chairs instead of silver for a more modern feel but it still felt very classic. My flowers were mostly ivory, whites, creams, pale greens, and subtle pops of light pinks. I had about 12 mercury glass votives and 3 smaller silver julep cups with a variety of roses for each round table scattered around a larger crystal candelabra. My table linens had a white underlay with a sheer ivory cloth on top with silver and gold beading. The tent had a very warm and romantic feel to it. Perfect for the rainy weather we had!
We had a fairly large wedding party. I had 14 bridesmaids and he had 14 groomsmen (plus dates). Instead of splitting everyone up into smaller round tables, we decided to have one large bridal table for a very dramatic feel bordering the dance floor. The table sat 40 people.
The cake was one of my favorite details from the wedding. I never thought I would care about what the cake looked like, tasted like, etc. I had never really given it much thought. About a month before the wedding, I saw a picture of a cake similar to the one created for Chris and I, and I fell in love. The inside of our cake was four layers of a pink ombre going from dark to light. (can't find a picture of the inside of our cake..so if anyone from the wedding has one, send it along please!!)
For a personal touch, we had our new monogram projected on to the dance floor.
My bridesmaids all wore Monique Lhuillier strapless gowns in a pale blush color. I originally wanted to do ivory bridesmaid dresses but couldn't find the right style. I added a thin crystal belt to the waistline of the dress to give it a more romantic feel. The bridesmaids also wore earrings I created through Kendra Scott's color bar on her website. She has so many colors and styles to choose from. Such a fun idea!
I wore Marchesa's Addison dress. It was the first dress I spotted when I entered the salon. I loved that it was a full gown but not structured and very "flowy." I added a thin crystal belt to give the waist a bit more definition. The dress was easy to move in even though there were a million layers of tulle.
The cutest flower girls and ring bearers in the world.
We had the same monogram projected on the dance floor, printed on our aisle runner in gold.
We are terrible dancers. Terrible. We never practiced our first dance and just decided to "wing it." Aka, swaying back and forth with one or two occasional spins and twirls. We danced to Ray LaMontagne's "You are the Best Thing." We laughed at ourselves the entire time.
It was an amazing night and I can't believe how quickly it went!
All pictures were taken by Peter Oberc. He did a great job considering the weather wasn't so great and made sure we didn't spend the entire night posing for pictures. He captured all the details and took some great candids throughout the night.
