Details, Details, Details!

If you're one of my brides, you may recall this line from our first meeting, "I don't do themes".   However, I do feel very strongly that your event has to look cohesive and pulled together.  Another of my famous lines, "I don't plop flowers in the middle of the table and not have those colors pulled out through the room".   In weddings, I prefer to refer to these common threads as the details.   Let's take crystals for example.  You can have crystals and gems throughout your event, but we don't want guests to think of this as the "crystal wedding".  There is a fine line :)

The point- this past weekend I had the pleasure of working at the National Museum of Women in the Arts with a bride who was very detail oriented and we had some amazing things created for her.

It all started with her invitations sent in Thai Silk boxes tied with a bow.  From there we moved on to flip flops with the couple's monogram, escort cards each with tiny gems, menu cards, the Pellegrinitini drink menu, matches, programs and place cards at each guest's seat in small round crystal frames.  It was ALL in the details for this wedding.

Many of these creative pieces were done by Mayla Studios.  Thank you for the amazing work you did on Jeremy and Melanie's wedding!

The couple had these Mr. and Mrs. signs on the back of their chairs.

Stay tuned for more pictures and details from this stunning event!
