Congrats Chrissy & Andy!

Since we live in Avon Lake, we love it when we get to work weddings with our "neighbors"! This weekend we had the pleasure of working with two Avon Lake families for Chrissy & Andy's wedding. The ceremony was held right here at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Avon Lake. The church has a pink tone behind the altar, which made for the perfect backdrop for the pink hydrangea bushes and the pink bridesmaids dresses. The colors for this wedding were "Sugar Plum" and "Tea Rose", so different shades of pink were carried throughout the day.

After the ceremony, the wedding party went off for pictures at the lake and we headed to Westwood Country Club. The weather was beautiful for cocktail hour! In addition to the indoor cocktail area, guests took advantage of the patio and gazebo where we decorated with the pink hydrangeas from the church, and the tables had cylinder vases with pink sand and ivory pillar candles.

The dining room was decorated in pink, black and white. Black linens with a white overlay and touches of pink on all the tables with the centerpieces and napkins. In lieu of a favor, the couple made donations to Autism Speaks, so each pink napkin was folded to display the donation card at each place setting. The cake was stunning, with pink and ivory flowers cascading down the sides. When the cake table was removed from the dance floor, a personalized black & white decal was revealed on the dance floor.

Another happy couple down the aisle! Congratulations and best wishes to Chrissy and Andy! This wedding was such a pleasure! Everyone including the couple, their families, and the wedding party were a joy to work with. It's always great to work with a wonderful group of people!

Congrats Casey & Sean!

It was another gorgeous day in Sandusky for Casey & Sean's wedding! We were all absolutely in love with the dresses at this wedding! The bridesmaids wore the most beautiful shade of turquoise, and the bride's dress was breathtaking! There was a peacock theme that carried throughout the day (Casey even wore a bird cage veil!). It started at First Presbyterian Church with the unity candle, alter arrangements, boutonnieres and corsages all including peacock feathers. Then it carried over into the reception at Lyman Harbor with the bird cage card holder adorned with peacocks, peacock feathers incorporated into the centerpieces, and a peacock perched on the head table in front of the bride & groom. Each guest got a "koozie" favor with the bride & groom's names on the front and a peacock feather on the back.

This was such a wonderful couple and family to work with, so gracious and kind! They made us all feel like a part of their group for the day, and we had so much fun working with them. My only regret is that we didn't get to work together longer! But I'm sure this isn't the end...Casey has a wedding invitation business, and I'm sure we'll be working together in the future!

The bride's entrance was perfect!

Completely in love with this dress! Can't wait to see the formal dress photos from the photographer!

Awesome idea! The bride painted a peacock painting, and all the guests dipped their fingers in paint and added their fingerprint as a "feather" on the painting.

Vanilla & Chocolate cupcakes!

Congrats to the happy couple! Casey

Loving this "Strawberry Bar"!

*Swooning* over this amazing Strawberry Bar! Not only is everything strawberry flavored, but everything is strawberry themed -- even the pots for the flowers are strawberries! This is taking a candy/dessert station to the next level! Perfect for summertime -- a fruit themed cocktail hour? Bridal brunch? I think you'll see a version of this at my birthday party later this week, too!
