Happy Friday! This beautiful weather has had me itching to spend as much time outside as possible! I am loving it! This past weekend we had the pleasure of finally seeing all of the hard work and planning of Kristen and Frank’s wedding all come together! It was beautiful and lovely and exhausting! Just how we like it! 🙂
When we first started working with Kristen and her mom, Karen, they already had their venue, the stunning Art Museum of Southeast Texas! I highly recommend this venue for their beautiful artwork and the amazing food by Becky with Two Magnolias! Kristen wanted her wedding to be a soft and romantic affair with vintage silver and a little bit of sparkle! So we started planning and planning and planning and I think it all came together famously!
When the guest arrived to the ceremony and reception at The Art Museum they were greeted with a sign in table and two oversized flower arrangements. Kristen and Frank asked their guest to write a one word piece of advice for the couple on river stones for them to keep and reflect back on for years to come.
For the ceremony we teamed up with our friends at Occasions to create a stunning backdrop that set the tone for what was to come! The curved draping, iron doors and columns were furnished by occasions and the arch, lanterns and flower arrangements by K & K!
For the pew markers we used our free-standing lanterns with a small bouquet of flowers attached.
For Kristen’s Bridal bouquet we used an assortment of roses in different colors and sizes to give it that soft and romantic feel!
We used more roses as well as greenery and other flowers such as hydrangea in the bridesmaid’s bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres.
Like most of our weddings we start with the invitations and let those guide us through the rest of the wedding design process. You might remember Kristen and Frank’s invitation from our Bridal Tradition post back in January but if not here is another quick look at it.
When we are designing invitations for a couple we always do several samples for them to look at during their preview. Kristen and Frank picked the center design above and we let that set the tone for the rest of the stationery projects for the wedding. We created programs for the cermony as well as reserved signs for the tables at the reception and menu cards for each place setting.
We also created custom water bottle labels as well as goodie bags for them to hand out to their youngest guest. Have I mentioned the custom cake boxes? We made the most darling cake boxes for them to send their guest home with a bit of wedding cake at the end of the night! Talk about sweet dreams!
Speaking of cakes! Dena from This Cake’s for You outdid herself with a stunning 6 tier beauty! It taste just as good as it looks! For the cake table we created a romantic tulle, silk and rhinestone tablecloth to accent Dena’s cake perfectly!
Since Frank is a Farmer they came up with the cutest idea of modeling his cake after an old See n’ Say! Isn’t that perfect! I loved that toy when I was little! It was a huge conversation piece at the wedding!
On the guest tables we used our sterling flatware at each place setting along with menus tucked into black napkins. For the table for the Mr. & Mrs. we used a beautiful lace overlay that was exquisite.
Kristen said she wanted some sparkle and we aim to please so on the back of each chair we used rhinestone buckles to accent the chair ties that we rented from Occasions. We also added these buckles to the silk ribbon we ran around the cake table.
For the centerpieces we used our silver service pieces filled to the brim with romantic flowers! We finished it off with twinkling candlelight in mercury glass votices. I’ll let the pictures do the talking!
We had such a fun time creating this event with Kristen, Frank and Kristen’s Mom, Karen and we can’t believe it has already come and gone! Thank you all for letting us share in your special day and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
