A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood | Katie & Erik
Katie and Erik (now Mr. and Mrs. Rogers) were our second couple celebrating their love with us over Memorial Day weekend. Having known one another since the third grade, their vows nearly brought tears to our eyes. “You were always right in front of me,” Katie said. It truly touched everyone’s hearts.
When I first met Katie, I could immediately tell how much life and brightness she had to her. Her wedding day was no exception! The couple had bright, bold, and glittery accents to their wedding day décor. Hot pink, tangerine, and lemon were the main colors…so citrus in sum! How fun! What I really loved the most were their centerpieces. White lanterns with colorful florals and greenery surrounding them. What’s even better were the twinkle lights intertwined around the floral wreath! During the day they were breathtaking, and even better once the sun went down. It was important to the couple that even on a cloudy day there would be color and life to such a memorable day in their lives. Even though there wasn’t a cloud in sight, it worked!
Katie was a crafty one and incorporated an element to her wedding we had never seen before. Do you remember those rubber toy animals you played with as a child? I do. Now, imagine them painted gold and holding your guest seating cards. Clever! We will definitely be sharing the idea with more of our couples to come.
A dear friend of the family officiated Katie and Erik’s wedding. She also was the mastermind behind their beautiful naked cake! It was dressed in, of course, more bright and beautiful citrus accents. Lemons, limes, and other fresh fruits and mint. Not only was it visually stunning, but tasty as well!
