Sew in Love: Lauren & Michael

We had so much fun working with Lauren, the bride on this one! She is a beautiful girl who exudes femininity and class and we wanted to incorporate that style into her wedding. From assistance in orchestrating everything from vendors and vintage car rentals design, we had a great time planning Lauren + Mike's wedding. Plus, they are just the sweetest couple!!

A little peek at Lauren's something blue. How adorable is that blue ruffle!?

One of my favorite elements of the wedding was the escort card display....knowing Lauren's love for jewelry and that she had a collection of vintage pieces that her grandmother had gathered for her from various travels and auctions, we suggested that we fill white ceramic trays with them to place among the escort cards.

I loved the way it added sparkle to the table and texture. We also created custom fabric and lace covered boxes to lift up the trays and cards and really showcase them.

The table sat in front of a beautiful satin ribbon wall that the bride and groom had created together. I told you these two were crafty!

We worked closely with Jen from Modern Display, who created the stunning peony filled centerpieces....and were they amazing! The flowers added so much softness to the space and enhanced all of the other elements.

Lauren's cousin, Annie, created the invites and paper elements that we just swooned over!

Kids were given a special space of their own with candy centerpieces in all shades of pastels.

We brought in gorgeous linens in soft shades of rose and buttercream and I located chargers, through one of our "to the trade" stores, that had a beautiful silver scallop edge. They seemed to make just the right statement.

We also created custom number stands to hold the embroidery hoops that Lauren's grandmother embroidered numbers on to for the tables. They added just the right amount of charm and represented Lauren's love for sewing.

The dessert table sat in front of a customized backdrop built by Modern Display and designed and hung with Frames by our Amorology Team. It was a big effort to get all of those frames hung in a day but the impact was amazing and made for an incredible backdrop for the head table.

Among the frames hung darling silhouette pictures of the bride and groom and as another surprise, Lauren's mother had given us a hand-painted picture created by Lauren's Grandfather of the lighthouse where Mike had proposed to hang as well. It was so touching to watch as Lauren and Mike discovered it on the wall and the thoughtful gesture that had been made.

Our team hand- glued cameos to glass candle votives affixed with soft rose ribbon to add another element and detail to the table. They turned out so cute!

Guests were pleasantly surprised to find delicious cake bites from Sweet Tooth Fairy. Believe us, no one was leaving these behind!

The dessert tables were filled with every kind of deliciousness by Culinary Crafts. As a surprise for the bride, we hand-stitched an embroidery hoop for the dessert station that read "Love my Sweets".

Stay tuned to see the rest of the reception, as well as how the party got started once the music was bumping! Many thank yous to Nicole of Nicole Hill Gerulat Photography for the BEYOND gorgeous photos.
