{Tuesday Tip} Don’t Leave It Behind

You make a check list for all the items you WILL NEED to bring with you the day of the wedding, but you don’t make one for all the items that will need to return with you. Several items that get left behind include:

I.D.’s or credit cards from open bar tabs

Clothing that you arrived in

                                                                                                   

Centerpieces

Shoes. They get really uncomfortable and you kick them off somewhere and then forget where exactly.

Sand ceremony vases or unity candles

Jewelry

The best thing to do to ensure that items like these don’t get left behind is to assign your parents or bridal party members jobs. Now do make sure if mom and dad will be responsible for gifts that they not bring dad’s sleek, two-seater, sports car to the wedding because they will be making numerous trips to get all the gifts home.

It was a gorgeous wedding all around, from the perfect shade of pink pastel dresses on the bridesmaids and flower girls, to the great shade of gray on all the gentlemen and of course the beautiful bride who was beaming from ear to ear and looked spectacular the entire day.

The ceremony took place in the entryway of this amazing estate so the bridal party could use the amazing grand staircase. It was truly a grand entrance into the ceremony and great place to take photos.

The cocktail hour took place on the multilevel back patios. A perfect place to mix and mingle while the bride and groom took  some photos.

The reception followed on the lower portion of the property where they called in All Occasion Rentals who set up an enchanting white tent, tables, chairs, candles, centerpieces, the dance floor and draping and finished it all off with just enough lighting to keep it romantic and a chandelier to keep it elegant.

The whole day was captured by a fabulous photographer Jodi B. and a special thanks for sharing all the photos!

{Happy Anniversary} Thrasher’s

Love, happiness, friends, and family only added to Chelsey and Greg’s beautiful wedding on September 2, 2011. The couple had their ceremony in our courtyard location at a Country Club surrounded by their family and friends.

 

The reception was decorated in white linen and accented with red roses and napkins.  The favors boxes were adorable! Placed at each setting were detailed boxes dressed as a bride and a groom that had a sweet, chocolate treat inside. Small, freshly bloomed, red roses were placed in the center of each table with  a black and white swirl ribbon wrapped around the vases. Strewn around the centerpieces were red and white crystals that added to the perfectly paired table.

 

 

The Adorable Favor Boxes!

Instead of a guest book Chelsey and Greg had guests leave their best wishes on a photo mat.

 

The stunning three-tiered cake was provided by Olivera’s and featured chocolate, strawberry, and raspberry mouse. Instead of a cake stand the baker utilize five water goblets that were slightly filled with water and a few rose petals. It brought height as well as a touch of splendor to the cake. Olivera’s did an amazing job incorporating the flower and ribbon details of the centerpieces into the cake.

 

 

Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Thrasher!

Happy Anniversary Tracy & Jason DeLong

On Saturday April 14, 2012 Tracy Toscano and Jason Delong were wed at a local church and celebrated their reception at a Country Club. The room was filled with champagne and pink accents and was wonderfully lit with the candles on the tables, the draping with lights and fireplace which warmed the reception area perfectly on this cool Saturday evening.

The couple utilized mirrors and candles adding  pale pink and ivory rose and hydrangea centerpieces on each table.

The couple kept it traditional will a simple  three tired wedding cake and added a simple D Monogram topper to the cake.

The couple also incorporated the tradition of a grooms cake with a special marine corps designed cake, which tied in nicely since the groom was in full uniform for the wedding.

Happy Second Anniversary Tracy and Jason!

{Friday Find} Skimping on The Rest

PRIORITIES, PRIORITIES

RANK YOUR PRIORITIES

First and foremost, decide what facets of your wedding are most important to you.  Focus on areas that make your heart go pitter-patter, and you’ll feel OK about skimping on the rest.

unnamed-2

As for what guests tend to remember, according to a survey conducted by St. Louis Bride and Groom magazine, 81 percent of guests say the entertainment is the most memorable part of a wedding.

 This is great advice from Martha Stewart Weddings and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
