A few months ago we were blessed to be able to help Elizabeth and Patrick plan their Art Deco/Peacock inspired Wedding. The Ceremony was held at the beautiful Saint Andrews Episcopal Church in Brookside and dinner and dancing followed at the stunning main ballroom at the Hilton President Hotel downtown. With the help of all of our vendors the day was perfect and every detail was left untouched and unseen especially with the help of J. Todd Photography who was able to capture all these beautiful photos.
To help tie in the beautiful saturated colors of a peacock feather we used deep turquoise as the main accent through the bridesmaid dresses and other accessories throughout the reception.
For the bridesmaid bouquets we used purple kale, monkey tail fern, allium, antique hydrangea, black bacara roses and peacock spears.
For the groomsmen boutonnieres we chose to use dendro orchids, blue thistle, allium and a peacock eye.
Elizabeth’s bridal bouquet included white hydrangea, ivory roses, bleached peacock eyes and magnolia leaves. To carry out all the beautiful gold features the ballroom had we added gold touches to the bouquet by adding gold leaves and finishing off the wrap with gold bullion.
Patrtick’s boutonniere included white dendros, bleached peacock eye and a magnolia leaf to match Elizabeth’s bouquet.
Megan from Little Yellow Leaf did a wonderful job helping us create all of Elizabeth and Patrick’s paper goods for the evening. The escort cards were my favorite for they not only included the guest’s name and table number but also the menu was on the inside as well as on the back stating that in lieu of traditional favors they made donations in the guest’s honor to Heartland Habitat for Humanity.
Since the bridal party consisted of 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen we decided to keep the large table simple and clean for easy conversation by lining all of the girl’s bouquets down the middle with Elizabeth’s in the middle right next to her toss bouquet.
To help tie in both Elizabeth’s bouquet and the bridesmaid bouquets we had 2 different types of centerpieces. The taller more colorful centerpieces included blue and purple dendro orchids, antique hydrangea, black bacara roses, purple kale, monkey tail fern, peacock feathers and curly willow.
The shorter gold and white centerpieces included white hydrangea, ivory roses, white callas, queen anne’s lace, bleached peacock feathers and gold leaves. Both centerpieces included gold bullion filled vases that tied in the bridal bouquet.
As always Rebekah Foster from Rebekah Cake Artist did an awesome job creating a peacock themed cake that not only looked great but tasted absolutely amazing.
Congratulations both Elizabeth and Patrick! We wish you both the best in your new life together and endless happiness!
