Kim & Mike – Summerhill Winery Wedding
This amazingly kind couple melted my heart from day one. Each of them wanted to make sure they were honouring each other in the decor and so we had a mesh of feminine lace and a fun activity area for the boys. The wonderful bride-to-be came up with the idea to give her groom a dedicated area of the reception for his own manly hang-out. As he is a connoisseur of fine cigars and scotch, Kim (the bride) and I decided we would set him up a cigar and scotch lounge which was very well received by the groomsmen and entire wedding guest list. It was quite a fun project to tailer this area to a woodsy and nautical feel with black and white photos of the couple, vintage cigar boxes, and a custom gold life preserver: “You had me at Ahoy!”.
At the entrance to the Summerhill Winery wedding reception I utilized a white door suspended between two wine barrels as a tabletop. This provided an area for the guest sign-in on wine bottles and card collections inside a white bird cage. As a backdrop, I hung my fine china tea cups in front of an eau-de-nil coloured backdrop with an ornate white frame. The backdrop complimented my crackled french door that displayed the guest seating chart and it was backed in lace to have consistency in the lace throughout the reception room. Check out those gorgeous florals by Classic Creations.. heart throb pretty.
Tying in the eau-de-nil backdrop and door at the entrance, I supplied the bride with this fantastic eau-de-nil love settee seat for the beautiful newlyweds to enjoy their evening from (can you tell what my new favourite colour is?). This accompanied the Summerhill Winery white chiavari chairs perfectly. I hung a crystal chandelier from the Summerhill ceiling to add ambience and had candle light throughout the room.
Continuing the teacup theme from the ceremony and reception entrance, I placed teacups and saucers upon my crystal pillar stands, giving an airy, elegant feel to the head table decor but not blocking view of the stunning wedding party.
The rustic chargers from my inventory complimented the blush lace tablecloths and my gold 3D table numbers. Florals were placed in my various milk glass that continued that airy, elegant feel to each guest table. Gorgeous florals by Classic Creations Floral Design.
The cupcake table also tied into the decor with suspended teacups over my coral canvas backdrop. Delicious cupcakes by Sugar Sweet Cupcakes by Lindsey were displayed on white and my gold vintage scales and varying cake platters.
Thanks to the vendors for putting together a beautiful evening:
