After a coat of Rustoleum Espresso, some orange ribbon, and a mini banner it was looking wedding worthy! I made the banner by cutting little rectangles of scrapbook paper and applied the letters using my label gun. I then took embroidery thread and sewed them together.
The picture below is horrible and if I knew a darn thing about my camera or about Photoshop I would fix it for you. However, you can get an idea of how beautiful the river looks out of those A-mazing windows. The bride had her ceremony AND reception in this room which is located on the upstairs portion of the building. Her cocktail hour took place downstairs and gave us some time to rearrange the room.
Below you can see the alter and some of her beautiful stick arrangements.
We had these scrapbook paper fans all over the building and they turned out just gorgeous! If your budget doesn’t allow for a ton of flowers, I recommend candles and scrapbook paper. It brings ambiance, charm, magic, and beauty without breaking the bank.
The bride didn’t want a traditional wedding cake and opted for a cupcake table. She also wanted her table to look more like a vintage vignette than a polished dessert table. By repurposing candle holders, vintage tiered stands, old drawers, and an antique stool she was able to create the look she wanted.
The bride wanted a paper banner and customized labels for her candy buffet. I was able to make all of these for her and it turned out so cute! Her label names were witty and creative and incorporated the passions and personalities of the couple.
I used my sponsor scrapblog.com to design the labels. To get the fonts I wanted, in the sizes I wanted, I edited the labels in Word. Here are some of the label designs in case you want to grab them for yourself.
I have to say that is was adorable to watch all of the adults literally acting like kids in a candy shop up at the table! Grown men and women were giggling and scooping up sweets into their little favor bags like greedy children on Halloween. It was amusing and pleasurable to watch! I highly recommend adding one of these buffets to your next big event!
Well, I’m sad I didn’t take any pics of what we did downstairs but it was beautiful! I hope this gives other brides on a budget encouragement that your wedding can be fun, memorable, and gorgeous!
