Stephanie and Mike were engaged in arguably one of the most romantic cities – Paris, on arguably one of the romantic locations – the lock bridge. Our couple had a clear vision for their day — crisp and clean white as the backdrop to beautiful and vibrant pops of yellow (our beautiful bride’s favorite color), pinks, and oranges with navy and metallic gold accents.
We adhered to this playful palette, letting it shine through colorful napkins and vibrant blooms. We added some beautiful, more glamorous, lucite elements to mirror the ghost ceremony and dining chairs with our lounge coffee tables, and acrylic frames around our navy signage. With Stephanie’s modern sense of style, she selected a gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown, complete with the most beautiful yellow accent topped with a large bow in the back and completed her look with an effortless updo. She let her bridesmaids select their own fashion forward colorful dresses and the mix and match look came together in a really wonderful playful way.
Guests enjoyed colorful aperol spritz during cocktail hour, complete with an orange and white straw, and custom navy cocktail napkins while a quartet helped set the mood. Guests were invited to find their tables with various colored polka dot escort cards, which doubled as meal indicators. Once at their table, they were welcomed with equally lighthearted and playful polka dot menus, three distinctive textured white tablecloths on the mixture of long and circular tables and alternating colorful napkins. Marigold completed the look with bright citrus fruit down the table, and equally vibrant centerpiece blooms. After a Dart DJ dance party under bistro lighting, our couple was ushered to their afterparty with their guests paving the way holding sparklers!
