The night was just as we had imagined and it was a great way to kick off Brooke and Jason’s “engagement year” with their closest friends and family surrounding them.
As guests walked into their parents’ backyard (their venue for the evening), they passed apothecary jars filled with hot pink and blue candy. That was our color scheme of the night, and we wanted to introduce it right away.
We covered cocktail tables with blue linens and placed hot pink roses on them to give the backyard a pop, and stick with the color pallet, of course.
Their signature cocktails, The “Blushing Bride” and “The Old Fashioned Groom” featured their favorite mixed drinks. We placed the signage for the bar in Lucite frames, and had personalized stir sticks for Jason ‘s drink and hot pink paper straws for Brooke’s. The stir sticks and straws were placed in votive candleholders to create a detailed look.
The caterer, The Kitchen For Exploring Foods, outdid themselves, and no guest went hungry. They added succulents to their presentation for cocktail hour. That was a creative and current touch that didn’t go unnoticed.
Classic Party Rentals created lounge areas where guests were able to take a break from the crowd. We placed candy in candy dishes to make the space an inviting spot for guests to enjoy a cocktail or catch up with friends.
To fit our theme of casual dining, we filled hot pink Chinese take out containers with salads so guests were able to mingle while eating.
Lanterns were hung from the trees to add a charm and light to the space. They were a great focal point for the evening, and their reflection into the pool lit up the night.
The night was absolute perfection! A big thank you to Love Bethany Photography for capturing the night. Let the wedding planning begin!
