It was a beautiful wedding, a celebration worth talking about and the couple (Steph & Clay) were so much fun!
Steph contacted me once she started her wedding planning. She had met me while attending a friends wedding where I was the “Day of” coordinator.
She had ideas as to how she wanted her wedding to be – casual, fun and a celebration. She wanted lots of colour (pinks, purples, greens and yellows) and our inspiration was a striped black & white fabric seen in a photo. The hunt was on!
Since the ceremony & celebration was going to be held at the same location we needed to be able to flip the room in a short period of time which meant that a partial set-up needed to be done without taking away for the ceremony. This was achieved by flanking the outer chair aisle with tall cocktail tables that would then be used later in the evening. It anchored the ceremony site and we played with the position of florals, fabric and candles. Flowers were from Grower’s Direct, Decor was from BarbaraLee Designs.
When people entered the Ducks Unlimited venue they were greeted with a very lush floral arrangement in shades of pink and punches of lemon. Guests were offered a cold mug of lemonade as they were seated and their program was a fan made by a local artist who also made the invitations.
The ceremony was intimate with just under 50 guests and Steph & Clay each read vows special to them. Friends of the couple sang and played music for both the ceremony and the celebration later that evening.
After the celbration was underway, guests enjoyed a ‘Dead Duck’ toast to the couple shooter style. The host bar featured drinks such as “the ball” and “the chain”. Photobooth anticts ensued with hand made props of paper beards, mustaches and glasses. The convenient booth form the photographer – Heather Wilkinson - fit perfectly under the ceremony arch giving it a perfect frame. Catering was from Three Olives and cupcakes were from The Cake Box.
