When designing Anna and Mike’s wedding I was lucky enough to have a bride that was a talented graphic designer and a groom who is a talented pianist!! The day was full of fun surprises! The first being Anna surprising Mike with an AMAZING Piano grooms cake! Mike in turn surprised Anna by playing a few songs for her during the cocktail hour!

The personal touches at Anna and Mike’s wedding were everywhere! They left two chairs open across the table from the bride and groom for guests to stop by and visit them (a Norweigan Tradition), The wedding cake was not only chevron to match our stationery and table clothes, but the “petals” on the cake were an exact replica of the petals on Anna’s dress!

For the decor we went against tradition and mixed silver and gold…. This is one of my favorite new trends… mixing mettalics is a great way to really bring out the shimmer in your wedding. The stationery was designed by the bride and we incorporated a chevron pattern throughout the stationary and the head table linens. On the Petite Fours from Gateaux we had music notes added for Mike’s love of music and we had Anna’s sorority quatrefoil added to the other desserts. Feathers accented the classic reception decor with the place card table and centerpieces. Congatulations Mike and Anna! This wedding was so much fun to design with you!!

Working with Emily and Josh on their Minnesota Boat Club wedding last June was on a perfect summer day surrounded by water and family! The small wedding of 150 guests was perfect for Raspberry Island! Everytime I am at the Boat club I feel like we are in a personal backyard with our own big house for the reception! When I was developing the theme with Emily we wanted something bright, full of fun elements and playful!! Molly Hiller from Mollys Flower Studio knocked it out of the park with BIG BRIGHT PEONIES that really lit up the space! The stationery tied well into our chevron and bright floral theme and the photography by Melissa Oholendt captured everything perfectly!

I am so excited to blog this wedding by Red Ribbon Studios! Erin and her mom were so much fun to work with and they had so much style… it was easy and fun to create the look for the wedding date! Now you see chevron everywhere.. but when we were planning this wedding it was not very popular yet… so pairing chevron sequence table clothes with beautiful floral made me SO excited!!

I always thought of Erin’s style as very “Kate Spade” and we were able to merry patterns together to make a fun and a memorable statement! Congratulations to Erin and Casey.. I hope that you are having a wonderful first holiday season married!!!
