It all started with a plate – kind of…

Taylor is the most chic bride!  Every time we met for wedding plans she was dressed in the cutest clothes. She got her bridesmaids adorable leopard pajamas to get ready in on the wedding day and even paired them with pink fur sandals!  Taylor loved the idea of a black and white striped dance floor, I showed her a black and white striped charger and she said she loved it because it reminded her of her favorite, Mackenzie Childs. The design then blossomed from there.  

We centered everything around the dance floor.  Long king’s tables flanked the dance floor and from there we had a mix of round/square tables all with a mix of black and white linens making the whole room mimic the pattern on the dance floor and chargers.  Taylor’s invitation suite also had an ode to the dance floor, with the same pattern on the back of gorgeous modern invitations with hunter green accents and magnolia flowers, since the couple met in the south.  The floral included a stunning mix of hot pinks, corals, and peach colors with lots of greenery including a wall of ivy hanging behind the sweetheart table. Taylor’s bridesmaids wore hunter green dresses and that same color was brought in with her menus perfectly sized for the chargers and in her invitation.  Taylor’s escort cards were hung from a pipe structure with alternating black & white ribbons, and the cards for the couple were pinned into peaches. The groom is from Georgia, and that is where the couple met and now lives. We lit the room with a peach glow and of course focused lighting on the dance floor, ivy wall, and even the American flag in the venue to really play up the existing features. Everything was accented with beautiful acrylic details – the welcome sign, the table numbers.  Taylor’s bouquet had a striking cascade of orchids and looked perfect next to all the colors in the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

Working in the alcohol distribution industry, it was only fitting that the bride and groom had a custom “shotski” at their wedding and they also shared a sunset champagne pop for a photo opp with a gigantic gold bottle of champagne.  Taylor and Marshall’s day was modern, chic, full of love, and brimming with fun details and color.
