**Ashley and Jeff** – Part Deux

I decided Ashley and Jeff’s wedding deserved a “Part Deux” blog entry because I was just sent a few more ever-incredible detail shots, taken by the super-talented AHS Photography, as well as a few extras from the duo that took the photobooth shots, Gabriel and Carli Ryan, another set of amazing photogs!!  I think these shots capture how much work Ashley put into the details of her own wedding, and rumor has it that, thankfully, she is going to start offering up her “wedding stationary” services to brides really soon!!

 

Ashley put alot of thought into her escort card setup…..she knew from the beginning that she wanted something “outside the box,” that would somehow tie in with the rest of her wedding look.  I threw out an idea of the box filled with moss and scattered blooms, and Ashley came up with these precious escort cards to “plant” into the moss.  They consisted of strawberry and khaki colored cardstock, calligraphed in a whimsical font with the guests’ names, and the table number was added as a sweet button that also incorporated their lovebirds theme.  She painted and glittered the wood skewer, attached the finished cardstock, and ended up with these sweet creations:

Can you say refreshing?!  Ashley wanted to make sure that guests had access to some sweet beverages before they sat down for the ceremony.  Contemporary Catering provided the drinks, which included Cucumber Melon Water, Nectarine Passion Iced Tea, and everyone’s favorite (shown below), Strawberry Lemonade!!

I can’t say enough about Kate Baker, who created Ashley’s GORGEOUS bouquet, a perfect combination of peonies and spray roses:

The ceremony setup was so beautiful, Kate painted a couple of urns the perfect charcoal color to go along with Ashley’s color theme and then filled them with these “blooming” manzanita trees.  It was the perfect backdrop to the space where Ashley and Jeff exchanged their vows!  If you notice closely, Ashley also handmade some reserved seating signs in the front rows for their VIPs!

The bride and groom’s spot at the head table, marked by the ever-chic Vera Wang “Love Knots” toasting flutes.  Also, you can spot the bubble votives that Ashley found at Crate and Barrel….their unique look brought additional style to the table setups!

A great shot of the full table setups!  Ashley chose to do long banquet style tables covered in simple charcoal table linens.  Instead of a more traditional centerpiece, Kate Baker set up a variety of Ashley’s own bud vases down the length of the table and filled them with sweet clusters of various white blooms with touches of greenery, to create a lighthearted feel that Ashley and Jeff were going for!

The gocco’d and glittered menus that Ashley created to fit perfectly into the napkin pocketfolds.  Their food spread consisted of In-and-Out entrees, with accompaniments like a fry bar and salads provided by Contemporary Catering.  It was comfort food at it’s best!

The delectable dessert table that guests couldn’t stop talking about!  Vanilla Bake Shop created some out-of-this-world dessert shots, with flavors like Dirt Cake and Triple Berry Shortcake, as well as an assortment of precious mini-cupcakes!  Ashley DIY’d the colorful signs to go along with the sweet display:

The 6-inch cake that Vanilla Bake Shop created for Ashley and Jeff to cut into was beautifully finished off by a lovebirds cake topper created especially for the couple by Lauren Alane:

And, to add to the sweet feel of the evening, Ashley provided us with enough candy to feed an army, in order to create her enticing candy bar, completed with her DIY tags for every candy jar!

I just had to include this picture of Jeff and his groomsmen, it showed just how rad and cool (hint: check out Jeff’s Converse shoes) these guys were!
