This is what happens when you are inspired by wood. Wood circles for escort cards, wood circles for the centerpieces to set on, wood stumps circles for the dessert display, wood circle for the guest book. It all went so well with Calamigos Ranch, this outdoor, woodland dream of a venue. Add to that a DROP DEAD gorgeous bride (love you stacy!) and a perfect mix of KFed (pre weight gain) and Ricky Martin groom, Kevin, we had the picture perfect wedding. A few of the details:
Ceremony: Plum fabric strips and lanterns hung from the huge tree, whimsically woodsy rod iron hooks lining the aisle, with a vintage fabric for the runner and add in some beautiful plum florals and a hidden succulent to complete our rich and romantic ceremony site.
Guest Table “numbers”: We placed a vintage clock at each table set to a certain time. The guests found their escort “wood circle” with a specific time on it, they had to find the table that had the clock with their time on it to find their seat. SO FUN.
Menu: We took a vintage door, added some wooden blocks and then added our specific menu items.
Guest Book: we used a large tree stump, nailed a ton of long nails into it, added a jar full of skeleton keys with tags attached and asked the guests to scribble their “keys” to a successful marraige on the tag and hang them on the tree stump. Now Stacy and Kevin have an amazing art piece in their home that will give them wisdom and remind them of their favorite day.
