Kelly knew Sarah + BJ before she was hired on to plan for them! The personal connection that she has with most of her clients adds to the overall look and design of their big day because she knows them so well. Because Kelly values the benefit of having a personal relationship with her clients, she seeks one out with each and every individual. Her commitment to making the couple’s wedding day extremely unique to their specific character and relationship is perfectly revealed through this wedding. Sarah wanted to do a country themed wedding, and after meeting with Kelly, the trust they had built up lead to a marvelous collaboration. They decided on a summery, bohemian wedding with country elements. Also, the vendors that the couple chose were completely fitting for the day they chose to say, “I do!”
The theme of circles was carried out through the entire day! From the dreamcatchers hanging on the arbor, to the circles lining the chairs down the aisle, to the hanging wreaths at the head table. They had feathers and antlers used as décor on the tables that added a little bit of country flavor to the overall bohemian look. Their dark wooden tables, white, lacey linens and table runners coupled with the burgundy, burnt orange, natural green, cream, and blush colors came together for the most down-to-earth, wholehearted feel! Not to mention the tasty little pies for all of the guests –their wedding made everyone feel right at home.
All of the design projects were personally tackled by the All Buttoned Up team. From the making and hanging of the dreamcatchers, to the paper products, individual assembling of each pie package, all the table numbers with feathers pressed in between the glass, all the hanging terrariums in the tent, and the backdrop hanging wreaths behind the couple at the head table! The team even went the extra mile to take a little razor and rough up the edges of each guest invitation to really give everyone the boho feel right from the first invite! Basically, there was not a single detail left out or missed! And after seeing the turn out, every single second was worth it and we would do it all over again just to see Sarah + BJ’s bright smiles.
