Since I am on the wedding topic already…here are some of the details from our day that I really loved. All photos were taken by the same photographers listed in Steal my Heart Away.
I bought all the girls champagne glasses and wrote their initials on them with pearl letters I bought at Michael’s. I did MOB for Mother of the Bride, MOH for Maid of Honor, and Mrs. for me. The MOH is the one pouring the drinks in the photo.
The guest tables had centerpieces of floating purple orchids topped with white floating candles.Our sweetheart table had a different centerpiece than the rest of the guest tables. We had white and purple floating orchids, as well as purple and white calla lilies and tons of purple and white candles. All the tables were sprinkled with purple rose petals.
We used wine corks for the name cards and our favors were wine stoppers with purple grapes made of Murano glass. We chose those favors because years earlier when we visited Venice together, we fell in love with the beautiful Italian glass, called Murano glass. These reminded us of our time in Italy together, and went with our wine theme of the name cards. We also had a candy bar where people could fill up small, to-go containers with their favorite candy. The kids loved this table! The seating chart was framed and placed on a table covered in orchids. Our cake was beautiful and simple. The cake was made by the Forest House Lodge, and our florist added beautiful orchids and greenery to match the rest of the wedding. She also added a few feathers to the top to match the ones in my bouquet. We had an amazing florist, who I would recommend to anyone in the Sacramento area- Design with Florae.
My bouquet from Design with Florae was gorgeous. Full of calla lilies, orchids, roses, berries, and a few feathers. She did an amazing job.
She also created beautiful bridesmaid’s bouquets and groomsmen’s boutonnieres as well.
She used hydrangeas in the chuppah flowers as well as on the chair bows to match the theme of our Ketubah (Jewish marriage contract).
Here are our programs, which we placed on every other chair.
