Tan tuxedos are perfect for summer weddings! Groom, Father and Best Man.
A bridesmaid gave me a charm of my mom (deceased) that Sister’s Flowers worked into the bouquet. The bouquet was filled with peonies, orchids, hypercum berries and hydrangeas.
Vases were filled with fresh apples and then wrapped in ribbon tied with our monogram for centerpieces.
Bridesmaids’ gowns were custom made at Town and Country Bridal-two years later Siri now makes the gown in the exact fabric! My gown was draped in silk gazar from the Ulla Maija couture collection (Angele).
White buckets were filled with pink hydrangeas and tied on chairs with ribbon. They later served as centerpieces. Lanterns were hung on trees and archways of the 1904 World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park.
During “cocktail” hour or in our case, sno cone hour (they were served in the appropriate wedding colors for guests) the bridal party took photographs in Forest Park.
The cake was kept simple with just a few flowers to garnish. We used the cake knife and server from the groom’s parents’ wedding. Invitations from the Something Different collection available through Coordinately Yours.
My husband and I took a short ride in a canoe to commemorate the occasion.
Oh and there was dancing!
Prior to the ceremony, flowers were provided to the guests in memory of my mom. Little vellum tags were eyelet cut and printed with “here with us in memory today is my mom, Joye” and secured with ribbon. The remaining flowers are in buckets at the base of the archway.
A guest book was next to the photo booth. Guests could take some home and leave one behind. It’s fun looking through them. See a sample guest card below (click to enlarge).
The wedding was photographed by Rehoboth Beach Portrait Company and of course guests in the photo booth!
