Katie and Rick got married last September on a spectacular sun-filled day. I have to say Katie and her mom were such a joy to work with. From the moment we sat down for our first design meeting I knew family was important to them, and this was all about love and bringing two families together. As we sat down pouring over images it was clear that Katie was drawn to muted tans/golds/pale pinks - all perfect for the surroundings at The Galley.
Who doesn't love a pair of bridal shoes with a little shimmer to them? They look comfortable too!
We decided to do something to dress up the banister that could also be a keepsake after the big day. These wreaths fit the bill perfectly.
One of my favorite photos to look at after every wedding is the moment between the bride and her parents just before she walks down the aisle. Such a special time for everyone.
......and here they are - Mr. & Mrs!
I love how Katie chose a pale gray for the bridesmaids dresses and let each one pick a dress they felt most comfortable in. These don't look 'brides-maidy' at all.
The happy couple making their way in to the reception. We had a long marquee here so when we designed for their big day, we made sure to include an element that we could get double duty out of. We moved the church decor to line the walkway in to the tent.
Katie had grabbed a photo from Martha Stewart to show us ideas for the escort table. We tweaked it just a touch and created an escort table that guests could walk all the way around. We had a specialty linen to cover the table and I love the texture. It mimics the ripples of water.
Everyone loves the father daughter dance...
Congratulations again Rick and Katie!
