Congratulations Trey and Chelsea

Since COVID-19 caused this couple to marry at home, they decided to later have a great party to celebrate.  Guests arrived in shorts and casual shirts, perfect for this indoor/outdoor venue.  There was a unique guest book which the guests signed: wine corks.  There were funny signs leading to the way to the reception, which reminded the guests to wear masks and wash their hands, but in a way that made them laugh.  The funniest sign was on the dessert table.  It said, “Don’t be gross, use the tongs.”  I loved it! 

The centerpieces were perfect for the rustic style of the indoor/outdoor venue. The tables alternated between burlap runners or squares and they were topped with vases of baby’s breath. To encourage the guests to have fun, there were outdoor games, including corn hole.  Rather than have the traditional wedding reception elements, we just played music non-stop.  Everyone had a great time, eating, drinking, chatting and dancing.  It was perfect for this laid-back wedding reception.  Congratulations Chelsea and Trey!

Venue: Haak Winery

Congratulations Mick and Alexandra

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic looming over our heads, this couple managed to pull off a beautiful wedding with lots of dancing and fun.  For favors, they gave out personalized masks with their names and wedding date on them, alongside small bottles of hand sanitizer.  What a perfect way to celebrate the wedding.  Alexandra even had a mask made of extra material from her wedding dress!

With the colors of hunter green and grey, the wedding was beautiful.  The tables had floor length ivory cloths topped by embroidered ivory runners. Each place setting featured gold chargers and hunter green napkins.  The centerpieces were either tall vases with ivory roses and greenery or low terrarium style geometric vases with candles and greenery.  The ceremony took place in front of doors that faced a park, while the couple stood under a beautiful arch with ivory flowers.  It was all so pretty! 

In lieu of a traditional wedding cake or groom’s cake, there was a tower of cupcakes and a tower of mini cheesecakes.  (Tip: if you are doing this, you need to put out signs that tell the guests not to eat them.  Otherwise, when it’s time for the official cake cutting, most of them will be gone.)  Another unique touch was their guest book.  There was a bible for guests to highlight their favorite verse and sign their names next to it.  We also had our photo booth there, and guests loved taking fun pictures.

Once the night came to an end, the newlyweds ran though a shower of rose petals before they headed off to their new life as a married couple.  Congratulations Mick and Alexandra!
