This beautiful spring day brought us to a venue that was perfect for a wedding with beach accents. The colors for the day were purple and grey and they were tied in various ways. For the ceremony, the Bridal Party wore purple dresses and carried bouquets of purple orchids and green hydrangeas. The Groomsmen wore grey slacks, white shirts and purple ties. Their boutonnieres had little seashells on them and were so cool! The Flower Girls were in short white lace dresses while the Ring Bearer had suspenders and a bow tie.
The Reception matched the colors in the table cloths, which alternated between grey and purple. The centerpieces were either arrangements of green and purple flowers or vases with sand and seashells. Even the cocktail tables around the dance floor had sea themed centerpieces, as they had blue glass votives surrounded by seashells. Instead of a traditional guest book, the couple had messages in a bottle. There were slips of paper for the guests to write advice. They then rolled up the papers, tied them with blue string and put them in a bottle. Nic and Aly will open the bottle and read the advice on their one-year wedding anniversary. For favors, the guests received purple koozies with grey writing, saying “anchored in love.” There were numerous other sea-themed accents around the room and they all tied in with the theme just right
Aly’s four-tiered white cake was the perfect accent, as it had seashells accenting the tiers and two little anchors making up the topper. The anchors had a veil and a bow tie, to make them a little bride and groom. Nic’s two-tiered red velvet cake was awesome: it was decorated to look like it was built out of Legos, and it had little Lego people all over it with a Lego bride and groom on the top.
After a fun day of good food, good cake and dancing, the reception came to a close when the Newlyweds made their exit under a shower of lavender. Congratulations Nic and Aly!
