This pair of trees served double duty. They began at Nicholas Conservatory where they ‘framed’ the Ceremony Arch. Then, they were transferred to Anderson Gardens to make a more personal and warm entrance as our guests arrived for the reception.
This Stunning Trio was our Focal Point and Greeted our Guests upon arriving at Anderson Gardens. The “Table of Contents” Guest Seating Assignment, CupCake-Cake Tower atop the Custom Burlap Overlay and Standing Floor Hook and Lantern.
A closer look at the Cupcake-Cake Table. Isn’t this fabulous?! Laura Beth loves green and thankfully-what else would have looked so beautiful with this Custom Burlap Overlay? Now a forever keepsake of the wedding day in the home of the Newlyweds
…with a touch of green, for our Laura Beth, but, of course.
‘Table of Contents’ Seating Assignment and Cupcake/Cake Table were the Greeting Committee as our Guests arrived.
Strolling the Gardens, Feeding the Fish, Filling Up Candy Bags and the Interactive Journal were all planned for Guests while the Newlyweds and Bridal Party finished their Photo Shoot.
Instead of Escort Cards and in honor of our Bride&Groom English Teachers-we called the Guests Seating Assignment, “The Table of Contents”. It greeted and directed Guests via Alphabetical Order to their table. Now a Forever Keepsake listing all their guests, hanging in Adam&Laura’s home.
A Taste of the ‘True to the Bride&Groom’ Custom Design Elements at the Reception. “Table of Contents”, Invitation, Custom Burlap Overlay and Cupcake-Cake Tower.
The last touches on The Sweets Table. Candy in any/all shades and varieties of green! Handpicked (literally!) by our Bride.
On their way to their table, Guests could make a pitstop, at The Sweets Table.
The Sweets Table…in any&all varieties of green candy.
