You May Now Kiss The Bride…
Emily and Brian set their sites on a summer wedding after getting engaged in December of 2016. On June 3rd, they were then pronounced Mr. & Mrs. Thompson. The outdoor arbor site at BluFalls was the perfect place for a Saturday, sunny afternoon with the sound of the waterfalls in the background.
Love In Full Bloom…
Emily used several floral accent pieces to highlight the outside ceremony site and the reception area. Complimenting her colors of blush and turquoise, the couple used white floral wreaths and garland that transferred from the wedding site to the reception area as double-duty decoration pieces.
Decoration Tip: Use decorations that can easily be moved from the wedding site to the reception room. Have designated family members or wedding party members move the decorations from place to place during cocktail hour. This takes extra stress away from the bride in the planning and decoration-creating stage and creates a look that flows throughout the entire night.
Toasts from loved ones help make the day even more intimate. Aside from a speech, it is now trending to create graphic presentations or choreographed dances for a touch of flare. A champagne “cheers” is a classic touch to celebrate the newlyweds. The bride and groom might even come prepared with specialty champagne glasses for a little extra detail that creates a beautiful picture opportunity.
Jumping for Joy
Showing off your true personalities showcase the love the bride and groom share for each other. Adding in silly gestures or personal, decorative touches creates a feeling of closeness between the guests and the newlyweds. It also makes for awesome candid shots!
“Home is wherever I’m with you.”
Emily and Brian did this by creating a picture board. Using a vintage window shutter, the couple hung pictures of their newly built house with twine.
