Colorful Wedding at the Museum

It has been a while since I blogged as you may notice. It has been a busy season for us and we just now got finished with it, so I am so glad to be back and to share how things have been going. I am going to try to be honest about the good, the bad and the ugly, so be sure to tune in and to share your thoughts as they are always helpful. Apart from that though, I am so excited to share with you some of the fun weddings we worked on this season!

As you may or may not know we primarily work with offbeat couples who want their offbeat styles and personalities to be conveyed in their wedding style. But that said, we also get some requests from clients whose main request is a colorful wedding but still in keeping with tradition. If we determine that we are a good fit, we are usually happy to oblige.

The wedding I am sharing with you is such a wedding. The clients wanted a bit of a mix of everything ranging from modern to traditional to a little bit offbeat. We found a location that was all of those things in it's own way and they loved it! A well hidden jewel called The Fuller Craft Museum - a contemporary museum that we thought suited their style!

The couple was working within a particular budget so we had to give them something colorful that didn't stray too far from traditional lines and still keep it simple. In lieu of a formal sit down dinner, the couple opted for a cocktail reception in which guests were served heavy hors d'oeuvres for dinner. We set up the space with an emphasis on cocktail and casual seating with seats both inside and outside. A few high top tables mixed with a few big rounds for the guests who preferred to sit traditional style (mostly the older guests) and a lounge area for those who wanted to relax even more in the midst of the festivities! To keep costs down the heavy hors d'oeuvres were served buffet style so guests helped themselves to what they wanted. This not only eliminated the need for servers to pass food around but also kept things light and casual as well as interactive!

Here are a few of my favorites from the wedding since they can't all go on our website. For more pictures of the same event be sure to check our website in the next couple of weeks as they will have been put up by then. In the meantime, don't hesitate to share your thoughts and to let me know what you think! Glad to be back.
Cheers everyone!
