Family-focused celebration with great music and attention to detail.
Due to the heaviest of rains brought on by a Gulf Coast hurricane, we chose to have the ceremony inside the pavilion, rather than outside under a tent so guests could stay inside throughout the whole celebration.
Kaitlyn’s father made a large wooden cross with matching pedestals which we used to anchor the floorplan and created a more formal set-up for the ceremony.
Following the ceremony, we reset the pavilion, while guests enjoyed refreshments, into a center-focused reception set-up.
The dark wood and wrought iron details of the pavilion’s tables and chairs gave us a slightly rustic, yet elegant base for the beaded table runner, loose autumnal florals and candlelight used to create a cozy and intimate rainy day experience.
Watercolor florals, laser-cut folders and silk ribbon created the fun invitation
suite, signage, wedding day programs and menus.
Kaitlyn’s niece served as the flower girl in a miniature version on the bride’s Hayleigh Paige gown.
