Beth and Dan dreamed of a 4th of July celebration of their love. They were both very focused on the guest experience and having fun with all of their friends and family.
The overall design for the wedding was based off of a circle and that idea of everlasting love without an end. The circle element was carried through the entire wedding, starting with the invitations and all other paper goods that we used. The reception space also showcased the circle in the decor, like the table numbers, the large hoops covered in greenery that hung above the place card table, and the card table itself was a round table with place cards set up in a circle formation
The place cards were a unique touch that we loved working on and seeing the end result. We did individual mini bottles filled with waxflower and the couples place card sticking out from the top of the bottle. The hoops above made it such a statement piece as guests entered.
Beth and Dan wanted a garden feel, so that was carried through in lush florals, amazing textured linens, windows that surround the reception room and decor. Three different centerpiece styles gave the room a lot of variety and dimension On a beautiful day in July, of course we had to intentionally place the dance floor near the patio for a great indoor/outdoor experience. They had a second bar placed on the patio, along with a cigar bar for their guests to enjoy.
