Tag: colorful wedding

Lately, I’m all about baking. With my upcoming trip to Paris, I’m really interested in learning how to make macarons. I mean, how much fun would it be to have those colorful goodies in my baking arsenal? When I saw the Camille + Mark got their little French treats (with adorable flags on them!) from Trader Joe’s, I thought it was brilliant! You can bet that I’ll be picking up a box to tide me over until I learn to make them — or until I eat my weight in them in Paris! Treats aside, I’m loving C + M’s gold pomegranates and vintage settings. A lot of the china and flatware came straight from Mark’s home!

P.S. Has anyone made macarons? Send some tips my way!

Describe some of the decorations or décor elements you used: Three farm tables (built specifically for us) were pushed together to make one long table. We brought the china that was used to set the table and used white dinner plates with a gold rim that Mark had in his dining room buffet. I went out and bought vintage salad & dessert plates from antique stores. I also found antique linen napkins for everyone to use. We brought our own flatware, both gold & silver. We also already had three-legged teacups and saucers that were used on the table as well as the dessert table.
What is the one thing that made your wedding different from anyone else’s wedding? The thing that made our wedding different from most other weddings is that we only invited our immediate family. Since this was a second marriage for both of us and since we both have children we wanted it to be about the joining of two families. My goal was to keep it intimate and meaningful. Plus, it meant that I could go crazy with details since there were only 19 of us. It was like doing a styled shoot only it was for a real wedding. So fun!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Getting adjusted as a family of 5 and getting settled in our home. I’m looking forward to renovating and decorating so the house reflects my style. We are also building our businesses. We’re both entrepreneurs and we support each other’s businesses.
What advice would you give to someone planning his or her wedding? Hire professionals! They know what they’re doing and can help you turn your vision into a reality. Plan your wedding for you, not for your family and friends. This day is about your marriage and should reflect you and your fiancé.

    This is one of my favorite V4 Real Weddings! A bright color palette, gorgeous floral arrangements and a lovely tablescape, not to mention Camille is the sweetest! I love when she said, “Plan your wedding for you, not for your family and friends.” Be genuine.

Y’all, the calendar on my desk still says it’s October 2011. I’m pretty sure the only reason it doesn’t say it’s September 2011 is because our former intern, Melissa used to change it for me every month. With the release of V4 at the end of October, I’m not surprised I forgot to change it. Who needs a calendar when there’s a glossy magazine sitting on your desk?

Of all the features we’ve done over the years, Camille + Mark’s Real Wedding is one of my favorites. Intimate (only 19 people including the bride and groom), but beautifully designed and full of detail, their wedding inspired by Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette continues to pull at my heart strings. The detail that the couple and I agree is a favorite? The invitations. I can’t get over all the small elements like the twine-tied key, printed handkerchief, calligraphy and texture!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. I first met Camille at church. Or should I say, I first saw Camille at church. She was asked to speak briefly during a church service. She talked about herself and her son, Drew. I was so impressed. She was beautiful. She was poised and dignified. She was all-around impressive. I was hooked! I had to meet her. I made sure we met. Everyone I knew was so excited for me, everyone had great things to say about her.
Describe the proposal: We wanted to get married in early summer. I guess I gave away my intentions too early, but I still wanted to give her some kind of surprise. So once I picked up the ring I arranged for our whole family (her parents, my parents, my sister in Atlanta, and my sister from Oklahoma) to meet us for a special dinner. I asked her to marry me at my house, told her we were going out to dinner (just the two of us) and then met everyone for a private dinner.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Serence, chic and jovial.
Groom’s favorite detail of the wedding: Having the kids be our bridesmaid and groomsboys.
Briefly describe your wedding flowers: The flowers incorporated the wedding colors while having a hand-picked feel. My bouquet had peonies, garden roses with a mix of other pretty, lush flowers in the color scheme for an organic, handpicked feel. It was then wrapped in thick teal velvet ribbon.
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We said traditional vows. We were afraid we’d get too emotional if we wrote our own. The kids were our bridal party. We started out with Mark and his kids on one side and Drew and I on the other. After the vows, we did a unity sand ceremony where each of us had our own jar of sand. Drew and I had white sand to represent our family and Mark and his kids had beige. The kids went first and poured the sand into a crystal decanter. Then Mark and I went. When we were finished we stood before our family with Emily next to me and Drew next to Mark and William, to signify our coming together as one family. This was by far the most touching moment of our wedding day.

If the sight of a glowing sperry tent in the middle of a manicured lawn doesn’t already knock your socks off, then maybe the bright and flowing linens will do the trick. Or maybe the rows of farm tables topped with blue Ball Jars full of wildflowers? Whatever detail of Alex + Paul’s wedding makes your heart skip a beat, there’s no denying there are plenty to choose from. Courtney Spencer of Merriment Events worked with the couple to create a springy and oh-so-Southern reception. In addition to being delighted with fun pinwheels and a gorgeous tablescape, guests took full advantage of the dessert bar, full of pies, cookies, coffee, and biscotti. Big thanks to Don Mears Photography for sharing this with us!

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Since many of our guests came from out of town, we threw a welcome party the night before our wedding, in lieu of a rehearsal dinner. Many of our guests had never visited Richmond, so it was exciting for us to use our wedding weekend to show them the city. The welcome party was at the 2300 Club, in historical Church Hill, which was a great introduction into the history of Richmond. The reception was held at Maymont Park, a sprawling estate in the heart of Richmond. In late May, it was the perfect time of year for the local flora to be a part of the scenery of our wedding. And we can’t forget the Southern pies we served for dessert!
Describe your wedding flowers: We collected over 300 blue Ball Jars from Ebay and hand washed and wrapped each. Kristi of Flower Girls was great to work with and listened to our requests. We wanted a relaxed home feel with the colors of spring. We let her use her artistic talent to create a beautiful landscape.
Describe your wedding cake or dessert: In addition to the pies, we had a dessert table offering six assorted cookies, coffee, espresso and biscotti.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Our event planner, Courtney Spencer of Merriment Events, helped us figure out what details meant the most to us and our guests, and then took care of the rest.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Our band, The Edge.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Seeing each other for the first time.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Don’t sweat the small stuff! Hire people that you trust and give them the freedom to do their jobs.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We’ll be taking on the Big Apple for a couple years for job opportunities and look forward to moving back to the South after.
