Tag: green and coral wedding

Oh my. So many great details! A fun bamboo motif covered the table linens and serving trays and pretty coral and white flowers were the cherry on top. One of our absolute favorite parts of Becky + Cameron’s reception, though, were the custom-lacquered cheese carts full of delicious fromage, crusty bread and custom flags that were rolled out by servers in attire that matched the color scheme, too! That’s design, y’all. Now before I leave you to drool over the details, let me call you attention to one more thing: the cake. That completely edible concoction is preppy perfection! Giant hugs and thanks to A Bryan Photo who shared this with us!

P.S. Want some tips on shopping this look? We put together a guide for our friends at Revel – check it out here!

What was the design inspiration for your wedding? Why was this design special to you as a couple? My best friend in the world, Calder Clark, also happens to be an incredibly talented event planner. She knows that I love bright colors, am a happy person, and love all things preppy, so I think most of her inspiration came from that.
Favorite design element of your big day: Because we had a smaller wedding, we were able to incorporate personal touches. We had all of our guests send in pictures of themselves, which we used for seating cards for dinner. Many of the guests sent in their own wedding pictures, which were really special.
Tell us a bit about your first dance. We chose “Signed, Sealed, and Delivered” by Stevie Wonder as our first dance. We wanted something fun and upbeat. We had taken dance classes to learn the foxtrot, but didn’t have an opportunity to practice much since Cam hurt his knee playing basketball about 10 weeks before the wedding. So our dance started very stiff and looked rehearsed. And then we screwed up the count and lost track of the foxtrot, so we just danced! It was more fun that way!
Were there any family traditions you included in the reception? Did you try anything new or untraditional? We got a chance in between dinner and the cheese course to walk around the two long tables and speak with everyone. Again, such a wonderful part of having a small wedding – we really got a chance to socialize with everyone
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Convincing Cam we need a second dog! In the future, we’d love to live in South Carolina, perhaps even at Debidue. We would be reminded of our wedding every time we go to the club!
What advice would you give to someone planning his or her wedding? Lighten up! The most important thing is to make sure that your guests are well taken care of and have a wonderful time.

Happy Wednesday, friends! Today’s wedding from V4 is an office favorite because of Becky + Cameron’s bright, preppy color palette and loads of customized details. Becky was lucky enough that her best friend is talented wedding designer Calder Clark (she’s even a bridesmaid in this wedding!). Calder used her relationship with Becky to create details that were so personal and unique to the couple. The sangria drinks served before the ceremony? They were a nod to Becky’s love of Spain and the couple’s upcoming honeymoon! Big thanks to A Bryan Photo for sharing!

Emily would not let me pass by this stationery shot without mentioning that it’s awesome and designed by Cheree Berry. We all love this suite!

Becky tells us a little bit about their ceremony: “We were married outside the club at Debidue, although we had our heart set on being married in a church. In the end, it was a blessing, as our Episcopal priest whom we flew in from Oregon is a mutual friend of ours. The ceremony was wonderfully personal and fun and meaningful since Colin knows both of us. The setting was gorgeous – under a tent in front of the marshes with a light breeze (wonderful on the warm August day!).”

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met at work! I called on Cam and Joe (Cam’s dad) to see if they might have an interest in using our products in their business. Cam asked me out after that, but I demurred, citing a conflict of interest. He was persistent, though, and eventually invited me out for golf with a few fellow advisors from the office. Little did I know that I was being set up! When I arrived at the golf course, he was the only one there! We had a great time even though I’m not much of a golfer, and found we have a lot in common.
Describe the proposal: Cam and I decided to go to the beach for Halloween weekend since neither of us much enjoys the holiday. We stayed at his parents’ house, as always. When we arrived around 5 in the evening on that Friday night, we took Bogey down to the beach to play ball. Cam later told me he was hoping to propose then, at sunset, but being Oregon in late October, it was cloudy and there was no sun. He ended up proposing (down on one knee, of course) later that evening in the family room. I knew something was coming when he turned off the football game (that never happens!) and asked me if I wanted to “talk.” Hilarious!
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Gorgeous, dreamy, and rip-roaring fun
How many guests attended your wedding? 70
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: Our families met up in Scottsdale for Thanksgiving about three weeks after we were engaged. I set up an appointment to shop for a wedding dress with my mom and with Cam’s mom at Destiny’s Bride in Scottsdale. I’m so glad I could have them both with me for such a special event. I had a dream dress in mind (a lace Monique Lhuillier), but Liancarlo was having a trunk show that day. After trying on a few dresses, including the dream dress that only looked okay on me, the Liancarlo designer suggested I try on the dress that I ended up buying. It was ruched across the bodice with a fun bubble hem and fan pleat in the back. It flattered my waist and hid the things that needed to be hidden!

    LOVE this wedding — such beautiful, fun details!
    I’m curious about those boards near the drink station — what are they displaying?

    • avatar Emily reply

      Hi Miranda! Aren’t those amazing? The goodies on the left are mini corsage pins for the gents, and on the right, larger flower pins/hair flowers for the ladies. Such a fun detail for a small wedding!
