First, I have to give props to my cousin Jeffrey, who did the graphic design work (save-the-dates, invites, etc.) BTW, he is the one who designed the logos for Pocket Full of Parties! Second, I have to acknowledge the amazing and enchanted ceremony location that my cousin and her husband chose. I can see how this pavilion inspired the entire red and white whimsical theme.
The pre-party held on Friday night incorporated the red and white theme. What stood out to me were the yummy cupcakes with the red and white toppers that my cousin made! (Creativity and craftiness must run in the family!)
When I arrived at the ceremony on Saturday afternoon, I was immediately struck by the little details: popcorn and lemonade for the guests as this is a favorite of the couple, programs and table signs designed to match the save-the-dates and wedding invitations, etc.
The bridesmaids, groomsmen, and groom coordinated with simple outfits that complimented the theme. But, the icing on the cake for sure was the beautiful bride!! Her dress was modern and stunning, and her beauty truly popped with her to-die-for red shoes and red bouquet! These were first viewed as she arrived to the ceremony with her dad (my uncle) by horse and carriage.
The reception to follow was held in a microbrewery - how very cool and very St. Louis! As I walked up the stairs into the reception room, I was filled with anticipation regarding what further decor would greet me. I was not disappointed. There was absolutely perfect place card holders, darling favors, tastefully dressed tables, and a fabulous wedding cake (that was yummy, too).
I hope my cousin's wondrous red and white wedding provides some inspiration to you in planning your own affair!
