UNIQUE Wedding: Erin & Sean

Purple was THE color for Erin & Sean! They were seeking a wedding the was filled with this bold color and garden accents. The bride wore a simple flowey gown with ruffled shoes. Erin is such a beautiful girl with dark hair that was curled for the wedding. She looked so graceful! Her bouquet was a combination of an array of purple flowers and touches of green. Her bouquet also featured peacock feathers. Each of the bridesmaids wore purple gowns with purple and green bouquets. All of the flowers were textured and fit in well with "the garden look." The ceremony had two sets of branches on either side of the gazebo and had floral touches. The aisle was filled with a carpet of purple and green rose petals. The ceremony was laid back, yet meaningful with a bridesmaid singing the song from the movie, "The Wedding Singer" - "I wanna grow old with you." Instead of the typical unity candle or unity sand, we suggested a water ceremony. With purple being such an important part of the wedding. The bride & groom poured red and blue water into a bottle. Obviously, the red and blue made purple! For cocktail hour, there were purple linens and white garden chairs. Each table featured a small copper water can filled with flowers. The patio also had the sheer white drapes, tied with purple sashes. White cushions were on the benches and we had through pillows scattered about. The escort cards were sticking into slots cut out of large branches. I adore this idea for a garden wedding! Inside the club, we continued the same theme of purple linens with white garden chairs. The centerpieces consisted of larger watering cans and tins filled with purple & green flowers, and even purple/green lettuce! Each napkin featured a purple tissue flower. Instead of a wedding cake, Erin & Sean chose to do a dessert buffet complete, with pudding cups, cannolies, and yes, a cupcake tower. The bride & groom entered the reception with the bride wearing her NY Giants jersey. Dancing took place back on the patio and the ceiling was filled with twinkling cafe lights. The guests enjoyed taking photos at the photo backdrop. A life size cut-out of Taylor Lautner, from Twilight, posed with every guest! Towards the end of the night, the groomsmen surprised the guests by changing into their t-shirts with their nicknames on the back. The groom's read, "Erin's Slave!" :) Erin & Sean, it was such a joy to work with you on your wedding! We can tell you two have a long and happy life ahead of you!

we are honored to be featured on your blog. Our day was perfect because of you and your team. You took all the stress out of my day. I must correct one thing though...I wore a NY Giants jersey into the reception, not Patriots. :) In case all the patriots fans forgot, let me remind them one more time, about the 2008 super bowl in which we ruined the patriots perfect season. :) are dealing with a die hard fan here. Anyway, thanks for everything Staci!!!
