When Jake and Kelly approached us about planning their wedding, it was one of those moments where you take a deep breath and then want to shout YES! We knew it would be a big task, planning for two fashionistas, it just had to be beautiful and it had to be FUN! The two venues showcased completely different elements so the challenge was bringing the two together.
The rich and romantic elements of the greenhouse infused with the contemporary elements of the urban reception. To do this we brought in rich greens, a neutral floral palette, geometric shapes and unique metals. The result was nothing short of clean perfection. So design, check! Next up, the FUN. The bride and groom are luckily close friends and I can tell you, no one is more fun than Jake. So when it came to bringing in a DJ, I was sweating a little. Jake and Kelly love Kanye. Like LOVE Kayne. While still keeping the average wedding guest in mind, I knew we had to bring in Yon from Party in a Box, the name says it all.
I will always look back on this wedding as a "ahead of its time" design but more importantly, I will look at it as a day that showcased how much these two crazy cats love each other. It was an easy and seamless wedding weekend and I attribute that to this amazing couple who just trusted us to do our thing and make it all happen.
