Pink White & Gold: The California Bride Series Vol 3

Related Posts with Thumbnails
This wedding is kind of addicting isn't it?  I just realized that I hadn't shared the location.  The ceremony was on the beach at LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort and the ceremony was in the resorts Vanderbilt Ballroom, which is on the bayside of the property.
Alrighty, on to some of the details of the day:
Magnums from the bride and grooms birth years served as the "guest books"

Sparkler exit, custom koozies from the welcome bags, Krupnika (homemade lithuanian honey liquor) on each guest table, petaled specialty linens

 Lithuanian and tradtional wedding cakes, the aisle treatment of bamboo, lanterns and petals, and the escort card display
 I adore calligraphy. These gold ink escort cards were from Calligraphy by Jennifer
Those who know me well know that I am huge on decorating the back row of chairs at outdoor ceremonies.  It really defines the ceremony space and its an opportunity to add another layer of texture and/or color.
I hate table numbers.  Well, let me clarify. I hate the look of digits.  So when I design now, we spell out the table number or use table names when there are just a few tables.  I also prefer to use "Grand" instead of "Head" Table when the wedding party is sitting together.
