Emily and Tim’s fall wedding was simply GORGEOUS!! When I first met with Emily and she shared her vision of a farm wedding, I knew I wanted to be her planner! We combined rustic elements of wood farm tables, wire wheels and mason jars along with an elegant touch of Emily’s Grandmother’s antique crackle glass, mercury glass votives and white chivari chairs to create the perfect balance of countryside charm! A rich color palette of burgundy and plum accents with crisp white floral fancied the table tops for guests. We had the best time planning with Emily and Tim and wish them a lifetime of LOVE! <3
I had so much fun styling this “Fresh Memories, Traditional Recipes..” dessert table for the winter/spring 2016 issue of Tucson Bride and Groom Magazine. I was thrilled when TB&G asked us to take on the lead design for a dessert table that did not include the usual apothecary jars with candy! So Hello Sweets was created with a kinfolk feel, I wanted the desserts to be very-home like, something your grandmother would bake on a Sunday afternoon. Simple single size servings have a way to making you feel extra special and a light and neutral color palette of cream, blush and shades of peach kept the dessert display friendly and inviting! Enjoy and be Inspired by LOVE!
Huge thank you to TB&G and our fellow Elite Circle Members they are incredibly talented wedding pros!
From the bride…we kicked off the reception with tequila shots for all immediately following the ceremony. Along with the mariachi ending at the end of the ceremony, I think this really set the tone for the remainder of the evening as we paraded to the reception area with the mariachi leading the way.
Dinner and reception were held in the courtyard of Maynard’s Market & Kitchen. We initially had a hard time finding a venue because we really wanted something outdoors but still elegant and non-traditional but also wanted really amazing food. Maynard’s truly combined all of that for us and we were so happy with our decision.
Both the restaurant and the train station let us borrow these antique carts previously used for carrying passenger luggage in the old days of the train depot. Colleen and her team at Atelier LaFleur created and styled them with amazing garlands, florals, and antique bronze and glass pieces that had been collected for months. The dessert cart was filled with fall fruits and a fondant cake made by a friend of ours.
Dinner tables were decorated with florals in antique bronze and yellow glass pieces, lit by candlelight and hanging lanterns above.
The mariachi played through cocktail hour and the rest of the evening was filled with live music followed by plenty of dancing to the musical styling of our favorite DJ Herm.
The party continued into the night with more dancing, laughs and a lot of love.
