Amy + Marshall: Seafoam and Cobalt Wedding

This wedding was nominated for Wedding of the Year for the 2013 St Louis Wedding Awards!  We are so honored!

Amy & Marshall are truly two of the tallest clients we’ve ever had.

I mean… the best.  But, they are pretty tall.

Seafoam Green and Cobalt Blue

When we first met Amy with her sister and Maid of Honor Beth, we knew we were going to love this girl.  And we did.  Amy was low-maintenance and agreeable, but trusted us enough to always ask questions and voice her opinions.  Even though she came to us having no idea how she wanted her Big Day to look, when she and Marshall walked into that reception, they knew it was THEIR wedding.  It was made just for them.  And that’s when we go to bed happy.

Amy and Marshall’s custom color board

After reviewing many inspiration images with Amy, we quickly determined that even if subconsciously, her mind was set on BLUE.  She just kept going back to any and all blues.  So we created many custom color boards for them, using different shades of blue.  But when Amy saw the cobalt and seafoam/mint green one above, they knew they had found their wedding.  And from here, we created the overall look and feel of their Big Day.

With our detective skills, we located and purchased these mint green mercury glass vases to really make a statement.

We purchased material and custom upholstered some inserts for this niche wall.  After we inserted them into the spaces, we adorned each cubbie with photos of Amy and Marshall’s families, candles, and other decor.cubbie wall at wedding reception with custom made backing to add color

Another of our labors of love, their custom seating card charts.  And in case you were wondering, nothing is complete without sparkly thumb tacks.custom made mint and cobalt escort cards inside a frame

We had a lot of fun picking out their photo booth backdrop.  Amy and Marshall knew they were going to do the Unscripted Photobooth with LeLe Photography, but there wasn’t a backdrop in their arsenal that coordinated with the design.  Enter photographer Ashley, who was able to find this twinkling stunner to coordinate with our understated gold touches in the room.  Understated, this backdrop is not.  But in the back of the room it looked sensational and sure drew a fun crowd.  We added some strings of pom poms in their colors across the length of the backdrop.

Congratulations, Amy and Marshall!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness!!
