Where to begin with these two! As two of my closest friends, helping to plan and design Marcus and Danielle’s wedding day was such an honor and a pleasure. From the outset, Marcus and Danielle were decided on what was important to them for their wedding day — an intimate friends and family feel, modern, timeless decor and LOTS of greenery! The ceremony and reception locations both catered to a smaller, intimate feel (the 100-person capacity chapel as the I Do locale and the groom’s parents backyard served as the reception space) which was further highlighted through the family-style dinner service. To achieve the minimalist look we opted for a color palette of taupes, golds, black and whites with a multitude of greenery for the tablescapes and reception details. A few favorite details — the modern, greenery-accented escort card display, vintage glassware and twine-wrapped menus at each place setting, the hand-dipped invitation suite (designed by the brother-in-law of the bride) and the bridesmaids lush bouquets. My favorite moment was the bride’s walk — it had just started to mist and the song she had chosen for both the processional and her walk hit the right notes at just the right time — it was magical.
