I have been so lucky to be a part of so many beautiful, unique and oh so special weddings. Occasionally, I have a client looking to make their "BIG DAY" reflective of a time period, tv show, book, even a song! This is always a lot of fun to plan with endless ideas, details and ways to make the guests feel like they walked into the theme of the event!
So, how do you make your "Themed wedding" something elegant while still getting your point across? Very carefully.
Words to live by - Success is in the details. This is true for any event, but when you are trying to bring a theme to life, it is exceptionally important!
With this GORGEOUS Gatsby wedding, we used the couples love of books, music and the era and brought it to life with the venue (Edson Keith Estate), the live entertainment (Jazz band) and the rich color palette. Pair these bigger items with all the little touches that made this wedding so personal and intimate and we had a once in a lifetime experience for the Bride & Groom - as well as all their closest family and friends in attendance.
Throw in the most spectacular lounge area I've ever seen - (I mean, that crimson couch...) and when paired with the right details we had the guests "ooh-ing, and ahh-ing" all night!
Remember, if you are on the fence about something being "too much" it probably is, and with most things - Success is in the details.
