With the theme of fall colors, the décor for the day matched perfectly. April’s bouquet was made of fall colored flowers including hydrangea, roses and wheat. It was gorgeous! The tables all had ivory damask floor-length linens and centerpieces of fall colored flowers, leaves and wheat. The cakes matched the colors also, as April’s three tiered, stacked white cake had smooth white frosting with an accent of a few fall colored roses. Jonathan’s cake was a surprise for the guests, as it was peanut butter flavored. It was a big hit!
There was a unique guest book at this wedding that I really liked. The couple had a small photo album with places to slide in photos. The guests took selfies with a Polaroid camera that printed out wallet sized photos. The guests slid their photos in the album and signed the page next to them. As a nod to the fall colors, there were to pumpkins on the sign in table, one with a veil, and one with a painted-on tuxedo. They were cute! For a fun exit, there were small bottles of bubbles, large wands of bubbles, and even a bubble machine.
Although dancing was a fun aspect of this wedding, the focus was on family and friends. April and Jonathan had plenty of time to visit and talk with their guests, which was nice. The elegant afternoon wedding came to a close with the last dance. The couple then ran through bubbles before driving away to their new life together. Congratulations Jonathan and April and enjoy your European honeymoon!
