Local Wedding Wednesday

Here's a wonderful shot of a local couple from Kate Morrow Photography.  Corrinne was a SB bride, so for a few more pics, visit the September's Bride Boutique Blog.

Well, bridal season for 2011 has slowed down considerably.  Although there are always beautiful weddings scattered throughout the winter and early spring months, the every week intensity of weddings is taking a break for us and our fellow wedding pros.  So, we won't be posting a Local Wedding Wednesday every week until Spring 2012.  But, we'll definitely highlight any gorgeous Local Weddings that come our way!

Fresh Idea :: Those you Love

Posted by Tami Parks

To me, weddings are all about love and family.  Ideally, your wedding day is spent surrounded by those you love and who love you, whether they are family by blood or by choice.  Too often, some of our loved ones have been lost before our wedding days arrive.  Here are some ideas in which you can appropriately honor and remember loved ones who are with you in spirit, but not in body.

Grandma's Jewelry.  Wear a brooch from a grandma, aunt, or another special lady on your gown, in your hair; or use it to decorate your bouquet.  I hung a small locket that had once belonged to my great-grandmother from my garter on my wedding day.

Vintage Photos.  Frame wedding or other photos of generations past for your guest book table.

Candy Jars or Other Containers.  Did anyone in your family collect milkglass vases, flower figurines, or perhaps John Deere memorabilia?  If it is something you and your groom also enjoy, how about using those containers for your candy buffet.  A great stylist or planner can make even Grandpa's tractor collection look like vintage glam in a rustic reception setting like a barn or rustic setting.

These are just a few ideas to get you thinking; we'd love to brainstorm with you about more!

Local Wedding Wednesday

Posted by Tami Parks

Besides fabrics and fashion, one of my favorite elements of a wedding's design is floral.  I love fresh flowers at a wedding, and think the moment when the florist makes a delivery and the bouquets are handed out to the wedding party is a highlight of wedding preparations!

Photographer Ron Moore of Photo Op Studios captured this photo of a gorgeous, bright bouquet from a summer wedding.

At EVENTS by September's Bride, we have several wonderfully talented florists that we recommend.  Of course, we're always delighted to meet new pros, too.

Enjoy the flowers!

Reception Inspiration

For this weekend's Wedding Walk, Rachel & Tami designed a glam table, using vintage china from a local vendor (ask us!), a beautiful silk dupioni fabric we found, and gorgeous vintage milk-glass pieces.

Of course, our friend Barry Jeter, of Procedo Events always shows up with the most wonderful floral displays.  He did it again with this very tall white vase, filled with a variety of gorgeous blooms.

The cake was designed by Second Floor Bakery to follow the vintage glam theme and the gold trim on the vintage china.

Come see our Inspiration Table for yourself!
