During my first meeting with Maxine and Lamar, Maxine came to me with several beautiful and unique color pallates. Swatches and color chips inhand, how was she ever going to choose! I could tell she had a flair for style and wanted to design a beautiful and unique look. We looked through some of her favorite color options, but decided to focus on the menu during our first meeting, knowing that her color scheme would fall into place. When Maxine and Lamar came in for their tasting the details had begun to fall into place. They had decided on a color pallatte of light blue and silver with “pops” of yellow. Quite fitting for an Easter weekend wedding!
With the help of wedding planner Tamuel Coward from Remembering When Event Planning, we used Wedgewood Bichon on the seating tables and Silver Bichon for the head square table of 6. Silver chivaris were the chair of choice and she accented the tables with silver chargers and butter yellow napkins. We also incorporated the butter yellow “pop” on the buffet and display tables as well.
One of my favorite aspects of the wedding was their Popcorn Bar. Maxine and Lamar chose popcorn flavors that included white cheddar, buffalo wing, chocolate, caramel and butter. A creative touch and special treat for their guests and another “pop” of yellow.
While pops of yellow were present in the reception decor, they were also noticeable in her attire. Maxine carried a gorgeous yellow bouquet created by Vicki at Peddles that included orchids. She really let her style shine with her choice of yellow shoes. A stylish and sassy touch. The yellow bouquets were the perfect compliment to the bridesmaid’s light blue dresses and the groomsmen’s traditional seersucker suits.
Color “pops” are often the final accent that tie a wedding together. They underline the couple’s sense of style and personality, and more importantly create a beautiful atmosphere for their guests.
