D&M (with their sweet daughter P) tied the knot on a beautiful June Saturday at the golf course where the Bride's family frequented since she was young. The ceremony was held in an unconventional setting on the 18th fairway with a raised platform stage directly in the middle of the couple's 200 guests. For dinner, reception tables were set up amongst crystal chandeliers hanging in the trees, where guests wined and dined until the sun dipped below the horizon and all that could be seen were hundreds of silver candlesticks glittering and glowing in the night. To end the evening, guests were invited back to the clubhouse, where the patio was transformed into a nightclub-inspired dance party.

3D sculptural blind embossed invitations were the perfect (and most delicate) introduction to this outdoor 'ballroom' wedding. Truly a work of art in themselves, these invitations received the perfect finishing touch, roughly 3,000 small pearls were adhered to the invitation suite for an added detail of grace and glamor.

When getting married on the 18th fairway, you build the design to compliment the horizon. Opting out of a traditional one-sided ceremony, we created a layout where our Bride and Groom could take center-stage and the rest of the guests could have an optimal view from whichever seat they were in.
Beautifully straight rows of chairs flanked a center stage surrounded by textural white florals and greenery. The perfect setting for D&M to say 'I do' in front of their closest family and friends.

One of our favorite details from this wedding had to be the 3D floral seating chart. Together with our talented stationery designer, Erin Braun Design, she created a mass of white floral escort cards growing out of a wooden table covered with moss, greens, and petite white roses.
After the Ceremony, each guest couple received their table assignment by finding their flower…a sculptural white bloom made out of shaped layered paper, decorated with pearls, and attached to a green stem with each guest groups' names and table number written on the leaf.
And the way they danced in the breeze…perfection.

Our outdoor ballroom was built just to the side of the Ceremony site, under a grouping of sprawling trees. The two 88’ reception tables were set up amongst crystal chandeliers hanging from the boughs. Wooden tables with clean pops of white were set with greenery and florals growing out the center of every table, accented by hundreds of silver candlesticks glowing into the night.
