Castlewood Country Club Wedding

This was one of my favorite weddings of all times because the bride attended four weddings that we did prior to getting engaged and told me that she always knew that she wanted us to be her planner when it was her turn.  There is nothing more special than a bride who truly loves and values the work that we do and so in turn, we had to turn it up for her wedding!  This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty and we are gladly sharing this "Starry Nights" inspired wedding with all of you right here.

We chose a beautiful color palette of lavenders, dusty blues, dusty purples and gray, accented by shades of pinks and golds as the foundation of the wedding.  This made for a particularly beautiful palette for the bouquets that Poppys Petalworks created for the wedding.

The couple got married underneath the most beautiful oak tree.  To make the bride feel extra special, and to also add a pop of color to the ceremony, we created a purple entrance for her walk down the aisle.  My favorite part of their ceremony was the love lock ceremony that they performed in front of their guests, which was a pair of intertwined locks they locked together during the ceremony.  When they went on their honeymoon to Greece, they buried the keys in the sands of Santorini...how romantic is that?

For their cocktail hour, we created one of the most beautiful backdrops using soft chiffon in their color palette.  We clipped each guest name to the fabric with flowers and ferns to help guests find their seats.  This is one of my favorite escort displays that we created to date!

For their reception, we transformed the space into a magical, starry nights atmosphere.  There was not one detail forgotten as we used three different types of linens and filled the tables to the nines with french white china and gold rimmed chargers, glassware and flatware.  Paired with the menus and place cards, the reception space was a beautiful splash of colors, all in dusty hues of purples, blues and grays...and it was glorious.

 I loved the Sweetheart table that we created for them.  They really wanted their table to shine so we brought in market lights for the backdrop and created an acrylic sign with their favorite lyrics from Ed Sheeran.  #puremagic

As if all the details above weren't enough, the couple chose to kick off the dance floor with a confetti cannon!

N+D, you have no idea how much I adore you, you are my "allstar bride" and it was my greatest honor and privilege to plan and design your wedding.  I hold your wedding so close to my heart!
