This afternoon ceremony and reception with the wedding colors of blue and pink, was perfect for the historic venue. The bridesmaids wore a variety of long blue dresses while the junior bridesmaids wore knee-length pink dresses. There were three cute flower girls, all in white dresses and flower wreath crowns. To tie in with the colors, the groomsmen all wore pink ties. The tables tied the colors together as well, as they had blue floor-length cloths with ivory lace toppers and pink napkins sat at each place The high/low centerpieces consisted of vases with ivory hydrangea. For a personalized touch, each table had a framed picture of Christina and Josh.setting.
The wedding cake matched the colors of the day, as it had three white stacked tiers with pink frosted accents and two sugar flowers decorating the front. It was simple and pretty, perfect for this afternoon reception. In lieu of a guestbook, this couple had something we had never seen before: Suggestion Jars.
There was a table with empty vases, and cards in front of each saying phrases like, “First Fight,” “5 year Anniversary,” “First Baby,” and other sayings. The guests wrote advice on the pink and blue cards to the Newlyweds and dropped the cards in the appropriate jars. What a great idea!
One thing I must say about this wedding was how organized the groomsmen were. They had lists of their duties, and helped out every way they could. I’ve never seen groomsmen so detail oriented! When it came to dancing, this bride loved to tear up the dance floor. It was so pretty, the way her full skirt flared out around her as she twirled around.
When it came time for the exit, the couple ran through a shower of pink and white rose petals and climbed into their limo. Congratulations Josh and Christina!
