Helloooo everyone! Can it be? Is it really June already?! May was an absolute whirlwind, as I had 4 weddings in 5 weeks. Considering that I only take on 20-25 weddings a year max, that is a pretty intense month! I apologize to all the readers for leaving you hanging! I assure you I have a ton of eye candy for you, so stick with me! Today, I wanted to give you all a sneak peek at a fab wedding I did last month at the ultra-hip 7 degrees.
I had the pleasure of working with stylish bride Marie (Fun fact: We went to the same high school!) long distance on this wedding. She knew from the outset that she wanted to have a sleek and modern wedding that oozed individuality. I can’t think of a better location for the modern bride than 7 degrees! The venue is equipped with incredible audio/visual and multimedia capabilities that allow for spectacular lighting and fun tech effects. Marie decided on a clean and fresh palette of grass green, turquoise, and eggplant purple. Our recurring design elements were peacock feathers, brushed aluminum and apples! One of my favorite décor pieces were these granny smith apples. We left some au naturel, and spray painted (yes spray painted!!) the rest in shades of rich purple and Caribbean blue. I was ecstatic that Marie was on board for my “painted apples” idea. I firmly believe that one of the keys to my success has been the trust my clients put in me and my (sometimes wacky) ideas!
Without further ado, here is a sneak peek at the set-up!
Loving the purple + turquoise lighting!
Long banquet tables were draped in crisp white satin linens. A punch of color came in with the turquoise napkins, topped with a menu + single peacock plume. lining the tables were silver troughs of wheat grass, dotted with white dendrobium orchids, interspersed with mini silver vases with more feathers!
Another view of the tables. My beloved apples were placed along the length of the tables as well!
Feathery favor box table! These kraft boxes were the perfect size for cupcakes…
Ta-da!! One of my favorite dessert set-ups EVER. Carrot & red velvet cupcakes lined the table and were perched atop clear towers of glass! Each cylinder was filled with a fun, whimsical design element: peacock feathers, painted apples, orchids, or my favorite…cotton candy!!! Divine!
Awww! a pic of me & my asSIStant Anna, awkward self-portraits are the best!
Hope you enjoyed this little taste of Marie’s fab wedding! Wait til you see the amazing pro pics from Travis Hoehne. The teasers he displayed at the reception were insannnnne. Marie has to be one of the most stylish brides ever. You will die over her DIY ruffle bolero!! Ahhhh!!! Much, much more to come!

Hope you all have a lovely, productive, joy-filled week! xoxo, Angel
