Getting Married: Elizabeth + Patrick

We are just in love with the Kate Spade inspired wedding of Elizabeth and Patrick. When Elizabeth and her family came to us, they were thinking of bold stripes and bright colors to reflect¬† the couples fun and vibrant style. We could not have been more excited to begin designing the space, which was the renovated Patrick F. Taylor Library in the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. It just so happens that Elizabeth’s father was one of the architects who restored the library to it’s stunningly beautiful state.

Elizabeth walked down the aisle in these fabulous Kate Spade shoes. What bride doesn’t love a little glitter?

The Bride is as talented as she is darling! She designed her custom invitation which were letter-pressed and featured gilded siding.

We also worked with Elizabeth and Patrick to create the bridal party’s ceremony florals. The bride held a stark white bouquet which looked lovely in comparison to the bright colors of the reception centerpieces.

Guests were welcomed to the reception with some colorful chalkboard signage by the endlessly talented Kelly Draws.

The stone fireplace in the library held a floral wreath which mirrored the color pattern of the reception. Along with wreath, we created an arrangement for the hearth which was filled with variegated pittosporum and a medallion of colorful florals. The intimate ceremony of family and close friends was incredibly heartfelt and authentic.

We decorate the reception space with twinkle lights to give a glow above the tables and added charming over-sized paper lanterns above the dance floor to create a playful vibe.

The table centerpieces were a true homage to the words of Kate Spade, “live colorfully.” We mixed up the arrangements with groupings of sleek gold vases and mercury accents.

The menu that we created with Elizabeth and Patrick featured some fun and laid-back items to reflect the couple’s style. Items such a pickle fries with sriracha-ranch dipping sauce and mini grilled cheese over warm tomato basil soup were a big hit with the guests!
