Book Worms Wed

It is a tradition in a particular family to hire me as their wedding planner.  Although I don’t really do weddings anymore, I made an exception for the family.

Just over eight weeks before the wedding, we made the bold decision to move the wedding, as the St. Paul venue was experiencing flooding and I couldn’t be sure that the repairs would be done in time for the wedding.

We quickly shifted to Spill the Wine and was extremely impressed by the level of service and their ability to do family style dinner service (not every caterer has the capability of doing this).

Despite working on a tight budget, the wedding turned out exactly as the clients wanted it.  La Vie Photography did a great job capturing the look put together by The Style Laboratory, Summer Harsh Botanical Artistry and Apres Party & Tent Rental, as well as the dancing to Instant Request.  And guests enjoyed pies and cakes from Country Cake Cupboard.

The book themed wedding started out with Save the Date “library cards” and the invitations were about telling their love story.

And they lived happily ever after.

Take Your Place at the Table

I love placecards.  They are a fun, inexpensive way to add some personality to your table.

Here is one I did for a bat mitzvah with a “Sweet Spring” theme.  And, yes, they were just as labor-intensive as they look!

The bride for this wedding on an apple orchard, was definitely a girly-girl, hence the individually made ribbon bow ties.

The damask of the linen and menu cards were integrated into the placecards to show a finished look.

The pins were attached to the placecards with the idea of pairing personality with the art on the pin.

Romance at the Radisson Plaza Hotel

I love this vineyard theme wedding at Radisson Plaza Hotel shot by La Vie Photography. The grapes in the centerpieces (Summer Harsh Botanical Artistry) and the wine cork placecard holders just added the right touch without going overboard with the theme. So pretty.
