Real San Francisco Wedding: Ruth and Vinny Part 3-Reception




Vinny and Ruth are such a genuine couple and wanted their wedding to really tell their guests who they were and what they loved as a couple and individuals. They wanted their wedding to be fun—a party. I remember meeting with them the first time to talk about the theme and Vinny was so excited to try to incorporate games in the reception because this was such a big part of his family time and Ruth wanted to have a carnival type theme because she loved the eclectic and colorful look so it couldn't be any more perfect! We started with the invitations that looked like a Carnival sign and ticket—we then wanted to incorporate many shades and textures and did so by shopping for fabric to cover mason jars and making custom napkins to add a pop of color to the tables. If you won a game, you got a prize! They wanted to have both of their cultures incorporated in some fashion and so both supplied the dessert table with the most popular Vietnamese and Mexican candies that their guests could take home in their goodie bags. The cake topper is one of the cutest I have ever seen! The groom is a HUGE captain america fan and so they contacted a local etsy artist to do him ripping his military uniform off to reveal his Captain America insignia. We spent a LONG night up watching Grimm and making the adorable place card fan rounds. The bride got really crafty and made pinwheels and prop pieces (hats, glasses, mustaches, etc) to add height to the table and give guests an opportunity to really let their hair down and pose for the camera! Who needs a Photo Booth when you have the whole night to show off?!One of my favorite details was the Jenga pieces that sat at each place setting with pens for guests to sign in place of a guest book. ADORABLE. 


Ruth and Vinny will always hold a special place in my heart. I cannot wait to see where life leads you next as you await the arrival of your precious babies. :) We are always here for you. 
XO

Out of the box cake toppers from Etsy!

If you are a pet lover like me (and we have a number of our fabulous brides incorporating their pets) then you are going to love this! We recently had a couple that cherished their fur babies and wanted to make sure they were ever-present in the wedding day festivities, so they contacted a seller on Etsy, sent pictures of their pets, and she then created these. What an amazing job she did…see for yourself! While they didn't go on top of their cake, these two furry friends sat on their sweetheart table during the reception. These are actually made of clay. If you want to explore other options, just search “Clay Wedding Cake Toppers” on Etsy. The possibilities are endless.

Real Savannah Wedding: Towne and Andy Part 3-Reception

Where to start…there is just SOOOO much to tell you about this incredible reception. To say that the smile beaming on the face of both Towne and Andy didn't light up the room would be an understatement. These two really knew how to enjoy every minute of their wedding and guests. As for the decor… Everywhere you turned, there was something beautiful and unique to look at.  Ribbons Ribbons Ribbons…a curtain of ribbons served as the backdrop to the sweetheart table and a line of ribbons over the guests tables embellished the table decor. Mason jars hung by ribbon inside the restaurant Lounge seating with area rugs and eclectic pillows were perfect for in front of the fire pits on the cool March night. Guests took pictures for their guestbook with Polaroid cameras and hung them on a line across the fencing. Chalkboards of different sizes, shapes and design described to guests what they were indulging in for dinner and dessert. Their dessert bar featured lots of local Savannah goodies to include: Savannah Bee Honey Sticks, Savannah Pralines, Gophers and the adorable wedding cake which featured spun sugar as their cake topper.
