A Whimsical Tale

This romantic wedding celebrated spring, welcomed the summer, and rejoiced in whimsical love!

Rikki and Matt wanted their wedding to bring excitement for the warm summer months ahead. They decided on aqua, corals and pinks to create a light, summery and elegant feel. Their center pieces consisted of aqua vases in various shades, sizes and shapes. Each vase held a big beautiful flower bloom in the peach/coral color pallet. Dahlias, ranunculus, peonies, and roses tied the look together amazingly and made the entire space very romantic. Aqua bottles doubled as the table numbers and water for the table. A few of the DIY projects in this wedding include: the chalk board signs, the just married sign with flower streamers, and the family wedding portrait table.


As for the ceremony, the sky threatened storm clouds in the first half of the day, but the wedding cheer blew them away! The bridesmaids, in their knee length, one shoulder, coral chiffon dresses, looked adorable next to the handsome groomsmen in their sharp grey tuxes. The sun came out for the beautiful outdoor ceremony, as Rikki, in her strapless chiffon and lace wedding dress, walked down the aisle to say “I do” to the love of her life. She wore her hair down in long beautiful waves with a braided crown. Not only were their guests in awe of their love, but also two big horned sheep and a couple wild turkeys came to watch!   To add a little comic relief, Rikki’s garter started to fall off her leg as she was walking down the aisle with her dad and step-dad. Just before she reached Matt, it fell off completely! After a chuckle, she realized she had good advice for future brides: wait to put on the garter till after you walk down the aisle:)


The reception was a fun-filled evening of dancing and celebration. A photo booth provided hours of fun along with jenga and corn hole. The guest book was made up of photos taken at the photo booth then signed by each guest; such a fun twist! The wedding cake was four layers thick with coral peonies on two of the layers; the center of the peonies had a pearl and rhinestone broach…stunning! The grooms cake was a Texas flag with a Texas longhorn replacing the star, very clever!  Later on, Rikki and Matt provided s’more packets for their guests so they could head outside over an open flame and enjoy a classic tasty treat. To end the night right, the bride and groom had a silver popper send off!
