Lurene & A.J. - A Truly Collaborative Wedding at Columbia Station

Lurene and AJ wanted to use a color palette of deep red and gold with accents of brown for their Fall wedding at Columbia Station. Lurene's Mom and Lurene are both crafty and wanted to be very involved in the wedding decor. Everyone - including AJ - added their own touches to this wedding to make it as personal as possible. I think they all did a fabulous job.

Lurene carried a bouquet made up of the gorgeous Hocus Pocus roses mixed with brown hypericum berries and yellow freesia.

AJ wore a matching rose backed by a silk Fall leaf.

I used a mix of yellow/gold alstromeria and red hypericum berries for the bridesmaids' bouquet while groomsmen wore the hypericum berries backed by a Fall leaf for their boutonnieres.

I filled the church's containers with a mix of burgundy and gold flowers.

AJ loves to try different craft beers. So we put his talent together with Lurene's crafty talents and came up with  fun cocktail table arrangements. AJ provided the "vases" - each bottle on every table was different - and Lurene tied them together with twine. She did a great job too! Those bottles did not move! I filled them with a mix of flowers.  Guests had a good time checking out all the labels.

I filled my brown metal container with a mix of burgundy and gold flowers for the placecard table.

Lurene loved the idea of adding a touch of brown wood to her tables so we used our logs and filled them with a variety of deep red/burgundy flowers. She also bought some deep red votive candles which looked great with her gold tablecloths.

Lurene provided tree slices for her tables. We added two of the lanterns she had collected plus a red vase of burgundy/gold daisy mums for some added color.

We used the small lanterns that Lurene had collected for her sweetheart table.

Congratulations to Lurene and AJ.   I'm wishing you a wonderful journey as you build your new life together!
