Charming details for a charismatic couple!

Mr. & Mrs. Heather & Michael Maves had so many elegant details planned for their big day! Some of which included these beautiful little rose garlands hung in the ballroom window (as seen on Etsyand these incredible Silver Candelabras also provided by the couple. 

As a gesture of their sweet love for their guests, they put together these shimmery little silver bags filled with different kinds of "sweets" as their favors. On the lip of each bag was a beautiful ivory placecard which indicated the guests name and their meal choice.

Each table was designated by a numeric picture frame of the couples life together!

At the planning meeting the floral decor (centerpieces and larger arrangements) were designed with the newlyweds and then created by the Monte Verde Inn on their big day!

Heather and Michael worked with the Monte Verde Inn to design this spectacular cake! A scrumptious red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and each tier was finished with a beautiful ivory lace & satin ribbon (provided by our blushing bride). The cake topper was an adorable pair of bride and groom love birds (also provided by the couple)!

~ We would like to thank the newlyweds for being so wonderful to work with and sharing their amazing day with us!

This couple has a profound love for fishing and all things related, so the details of their big day really tied into their mutual love for the sport!

Each of their escort/placecards were color coded but also included a stamp indicating their meal identifiers. As you can sorta see below the solid brown backing on some of the cards indicated one meal option and the brown damask backing on other cards indicated the other meal option. This made it easy to decipher while still looking elegant and creative!

Our newlyweds brought in this rustic fisherman's basket (below) for guests to place their cards into, but carried the fisherman theme throughout with a feminine touch.

Each table was decorated with beautiful centerpiece floral decor designed with Ali & Damian by the Monte Verde Inn.

Mr. & Mrs. Forsythe brought in adorable table names, which included many fishing rivers and adventures they had been on during their courtship.

As with their centerpiece floral decor, the cake was also designed with our newlyweds by Kelly Dalisa of the Monte Verde Inn. Their cake was a delicious very cherry cake: white cake with cherry chips, soaked in Kirsch Liqueur and cherry filling, topped with buttercream frosting under a thin layer of fondant... YUM!

~ We wish Ali & Damian the very best in their future adventures!
Thank you for being so wonderful to work with!

Jessica and Kelly selected the perfect cheerful colors for this grand chronological day. A bright yellow and cobalt blue tied their entire day together, absolutely loved the sunflowers! Each table was named after a state that had significance to them or their families.

They even got a bit creative with the traditional ring bearer pillow and had both of their rings tied with ribbon to a large Sunflower!

The newlyweds brought in colorful placecards, which were color coded by meal choice as well as stickers on card indicating meal choice. Each placecard was weighted down with pretty little irredescent stones to prevent them from falling over or away in a little breeze.

Such an adorable and yummy cake... so it was a tier of Spice Cake with Apricot, another tier of Pound Cake soaked with Hazelnut Liqueur and Bavarian Cream and frosted all over with Italian Buttercream.

See their cake topper (up close) below... so cute!!

We wish our newlyweds the very best in their new adventures as husband and wife!!
