a kiss is still a kiss

Okay, with the craziness of wedding season we must admit we are busy playing catch up with all the absolutely fun weddings we still have to share with you from this year BUT we have every good intention to be caught up soon! Rachelle & Scott were married in January and we thought it was about time to feature some of the details that went into making this affair so one of a kind!

Rachelle & Scott approached us with lots of ideas and wanted to incorporate elements such as pearls, jazz music, and classic films into their big day. Naturally, we went in the direction of old Hollywood glam and were inspired by films such as, The Great Gatsby and Casablanca. However, we wanted to infuse the vintage theme with a fun, modern twist, so we chose a bright color palette and customized details to offset the classically romantic vibe.

Rachelle's mother, Donna Anderson, is one crafty lady! Not only is she the owner of the fabulous, A Dressy Ocassion, but she also took on the task of making all the beautiful table runners and napkins herself. The gorgeous damask fabric was imported from Asia and was used throughout the wedding in unexpected places.

In keeping with the Casablanca feel, we incorporated the famous line "a kiss is still a kiss," into the graphic elements of the wedding. Which were designed by the fabulously talented, Cortney Scowby, of Brightly Designed. She also created little cards with sweet quotes about love & kisses that we placed on the tables for guests to read throughout the night.

For favors the guests received delicious little Hershey kisses cookies! Who doesn't love a good kiss?

Amorology also created a custom candy bar station just for the wedding. We filled the candy bar with all types of goodies like chocolate candy kisses in every flavor, cherry jellybeans, red vines, hot tamales, blue rock candy and of course chocolate smooches!

Flowers played a huge part in adding a classic element of old Hollywood romance and Allyson of Heritage flowers did a stellar job creating wildly, romantic flowers for the wedding. We worked with Allyson very closely to find the perfect flowers in just the perfect shades of red. We were so thrilled with the outcome of all her hard work! We also added a little bit of playfulness to the flowers with the giant pearls that were peeking out of the arrangements.

We love LOVE loved the cake that Davlyn of Flour and Flower Designs created for Rachelle & Scott! She created a custom stencil to match the damask print and copied the design on to different tiers of the cake. The cake was actually a cheesecake cake and it was so delicious!!

We created the custom cake box for the wedding and we also hung all the pretty paper lanterns above to showcase the cake in all it's glory : )

The guests had so much fun in front of this customized photo backdrop that we designed and created from left over fabric. It made for some super cute photo ops : )

It was so great having Jamie Hammond there to capture all the beautiful details and also Benny Ek, who created a lovely video for the couple. Without their hard work we could never have all these beautiful memories documented. Many happy wishes and kisses to Rachelle and Scott!
