Amber and Steve wanted to have a really fun party for their reception. And Occasions in New Hope was the perfect place. They wanted lots of different touches and I think they achieved it with their color pallete and lots of lights in unexpected places. Amber's hot colored bouquet was the brightest star. In the center of her roses and orchids. was a bright green dragonfly resting on the petals. Boutonnieres were crafter out of colored aluminum wire coated with brightly colored textured wire and beading.
Bridesmaids' bouquets were bright shades of roses, stock and hypericum berries with lots of hot pink looped ribbon.
Due to inclement weather, the ceremony was moved inside. So instead of using the lanterns in trees, we lined the aisle with them. And the brightly colored gerbers and ribbon added a fun touch to the chairs. The flowers were done in bright orange, green, and hot pink with added touches of bright curling ribbon and ting ting. Amber also had a custom made aisle runner with their names on it which was adorable.
Another special touch were the chair bows we had made in bright orange and hot pink just for the bride and groom. The orange material was covered in a fun glittery pattern.
Martini glasses of rose petals and swizzle sticks of green cushion mums stood on each cocktail table. Of course there was a light in the base of each glass. And the placecard piece was a huge martini glass with an umbrella hand-painted by the groom. He did a great job even if you can't see it. Placecards were cocktail umbrellas and looked so cute.
