As Vanessa and Brian walked back down the aisle to the sound of numerous bells ringing aloud from their family and friends, they hopped upon their vintage yellow tandem bike, with the help of a few from the bridal party and made it through the gardens and on down the street. Though the bicycle didn’t really need any decor due to the perfect condition and matching color we placed a small floral piece up front and a “Just Married” on the back.
The reception was filled with many personal touches including all the pieces we used as centerpieces. We used a mixture of carnival glass which was a family heirloom to serve a vases for the all of the tables. We also had a variety of doilies scattered around each piece to help tie in the “vintage feel”.
The centerpieces had a variety of flowers in them including roses, ranunculus, dusty miller, billy balls, bupleurum, football mums, succulents, queen ann’s lace and scabiosa pods.
Another personal decor item that Vanessa wanted to add to the wedding was wheat in remembrance of her father who was a wheat farmer. Besides adding it to her bouquet we also made a horse shoe shaped wheat wreath that hung in the front entrance of Simpson House for a symbol of good luck to the couple.
Jill and Wes from Moxie Catering as always did an outstanding job with filling Vanessa and Brian’s wishes for eclectic comfort food. Besides being absolutely delicious it had as you can see a beautiful presentation to it as well.
Rebekah from Rebekah Foster Cake Artist made a custom yellow and white cake that was inspired by the lace on Vanessa’s dress. To tie in Vanessa and Brian’s love for bicycles we made them a tandem bike cake topper out of wire and vintage buttons.
The rest of the night was full of laughter and dancing. A big thanks to Richard from All Ears Mobile DJ who did an awesome job keeping them groovin all night long!
Congrats again Vanessa + Brian! We absolutely LOVED working with the both of you and wish you both only the best! (Ohh yeah….and just so you know every time I see anything bicycle related I think you guys! 🙂
