Our wedding featured is the love story of Aaron and Misty who were married July 5, 2014 at Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, Maryland. Our couple used a very vibrant color palette, pink! Our beautiful Bride knew exactly what she wanted and detailed to us everything that she wanted us to bring to life on her wedding day. Elegance and attention to detail was most important for the Bride and she wanted her guests to have an “experience” on the day of her wedding! From the lush color of shades of pink, to the intimate details in the stationery, to the activities that the guest would be able to participate in during the time they spent celebrating with our couple.
The color palette used was various shades of pink with hints of gold. The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love, as well as self-worth, tenderness, caring and acceptance. A perfect color for such a romantic day and our couple! The floral décor was a mixture of hydrangea and orchids which were designed by our friends at Tierra Floral Design. The pink floral décor added the right burst of color for our outdoor ceremony as it politely blended itself with nature’s green color palette. At the reception, pink was incorporated with the tablescape as a pop of color in the linen napkins, floral centerpieces, wedding cake, and printed stationery. Gold came into play as the little intimate details using gold flatware, gold pebble base plates, and gold hand-crafted tables names that were done by my cousin in North Carolina. The final touches on the tables were the table linens; we toned down the color, however, the texture in the extreme ivory linen gave it that added touch to compliment our elegant décor.
As guests entered the reception, they were embraced with sheer fabric ceilings, pink up-lighting around the room, and above the sweetheart table was the lighted design logo of our couple; lighting was provided by our friends at Washington Celebrations.
As the guests dined and celebrated with our couple, they were able to enjoy the entertainment of a gelato station, photobooth, the rhythmic sounds from Deejay Tye, live cocktail music from violinist Daniel-D, and the guys had the experience of a cigar and cognac bar which as a classic hit! Couple months before the wedding the Bride wanted to do something special for the groom and her friends, so I suggested to her a cigar roller and cognac bar. After extensive research we found the perfect match, engaging Cortez Cigars to assist with a cigar roller on-site to show the skills of how crafting cigars for the gentlemen on-site. This guy was a true talent and exciting to watch.
We loved working with the color pink and loved one of our first ideas – the cigar roller. Providing your guests with an “experience” definitely yields to a romantic and remarkable day of celebrating!
