Gold and Silver Wedding

LAST UPDATED: Apr 12, 2020 | PUBLISHED: Oct 12, 2011 | By: Julie Blanner
Kim and Dave’s wedding was filled with so many special moments and details, that it yielded a two part post.   Both the ceremony and reception were held at Indian Hills Country Club, offering convenience for their guests, many who were out of town.  While Kim, Dave, their families and friends were photographed, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors douevres while the space was being transformed.
A large gold glitter monogram was the focal point of the room {DIY to come}, creating a nice backdrop for toasts.
When Kim and Dave saw the menu offerings, they were sold on the location.  Below is a photograph of the Asian stir fry action station, which consisted of lo mein, rice, cashew chicken and broccoli and beef.  Guests enjoyed creating their own in the adorable take out boxes complete with chopsticks.  Build your own mini dogs and sliders were offered as a nod to Dave’s hometown, Chicago.  The orange chipotle sauce was the perfect enhancement to the waffle fries.  They also served an array of flatbread artisan pizzas, turkey on cheddar biscuits.
Guests were entertained by the cigar roller adhered personalized bands on the custom creations.
Gold glitter monograms also adorned the entryway, welcoming guests.
Silver leafing, a large silver cake plateau and a Swarovski crystal monogram created a regal cake to remember.
The bride and her mother made almond liquor favors.  Aren’t they darling?  We had custom menus designed to coordinate with the save the dates and wedding programs.
If you recall from my previous post, this bride to be was fearless in mixing silver and gold.  The result was nothing short of amazing.
One of the greatest perks of hosting your ceremony and reception in the same location is the ability to maximize your decor.  If you recall, the glass cylinders, petals and pillars were originally aisle decor.  Two of the large baby’s breath centerpieces stood tall at the altar before gracing guests’ tables.
Thank you to RPM Photography for capturing and sharing images of their day!
