Another fabulous opportunity to plan an event on the central coast! What fun it was.
The wedding was held in a friend’s yard. We built a pergola to frame the ceremony site, placed chairs and staked old windows into the ground to frame the back side. The front side of the windows was white and the back side was painted purple. Flowers were hung by ribbons in mason jars at different places on the windows. The pergola was adorned with handfuls of fresh cut flowers and large twigs as well as a pink chandelier.
Hostess du Jour was in charge of designing and coordinating the event as well as designing and arranging the flowers. Multi colored flowers were arranged in each centerpiece while the brides each had one single colored flower that matched their shoes. The groomsmen’s boutonnieres and ties matched their partner.
The bride’s bouquet was a combination of all her bridesmaid’s flowers with a little Alice in Wonderland flair. The centerpieces were a combination of multicolored bouquets in giant tea cups as well as tall vases wrapped in black and white wrapping paper.
The tables had white napkins creating the striped effect as well as multi colored lanterns hung over the whole reception. PVC poles spray painted with black and white spirals held the wire over the whole reception. Programs, favors and invites all had the Alice in Wonderland theme incorporated.
Food was provided by Auten Boy’s BBQ and Catering in Arroyo Grande. Appetizers were served in the font lawn while the bride and groom took pictures. Food was in the back with drinks and dancing. Cakes were provided by KKs Bunt cakes in Arroyo Grande. Video of the ceremony and reception was done by Ryan Lee Video and photos were taken by J. Andrew Photography.
Thanks to everyone who helped, the day was a big success. The bride and groom were beautiful. Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you for letting us be a part of planning your big day!
