Real Detroit Wedding: Blue, Peach and Ivory

When I first met with this client to discuss the details of her wedding she had no theme and no idea of how she wanted it to look what she did know was that her favorite color is blue as a matter of fact she told me to do what I want in terms of decorating...As a wedding planner it is never my goal to take over a client's look and feel of their wedding it is my goal to pull out of them how they want it to look and this Encore bride loved monograms and the color blue she wanted small and intimate and not over the top and elaborate. It was also important that both families were represented with the design and decor. This is what we came up with.

The couple had a small intimate wedding with 65 guests when it came to their cake they wanted elegant. Custom Cake Boutique did an amazing job designing their wedding cake.

The Couple incorporated their initials with a custom monogram design on their wedding cake.

The Bride wanted a little bling so we decided to use a custom ring pillow with the couples initials blinged out. 

 To honor the Bride's deceased mother we placed a small peach and blue bouquet on her chair.

The couple wanted low centerpieces nothing too much but you know me nothing too much means lush and vibrant and the bride and groom LOVED their centerpieces. 

 Finally to tie everything and everyone together the bride,groom and her two sons participated in a sand ceremony.

The Bride wanted to share some part of the planning with her future mother in law who also happens to love to make crafts on her Cricuit machine decided she would let her handle the guest favors and she made the sweet little favor boxes and the custom "R" to personalize the boxes with the couples first initial of their last name and o make it a little sweeter she added the gold tulle favor bags filled with gold foil Hershey kisses! 

Here is where I added my two cents... Two of these beautiful Orchid and Hydrangea trees and draping were the backdrop for the couple as they took their vows and during the reception the backdrop was used for the head table!
