Natural + Love Filled Wedding at The Dana

Recap

A beautiful wedding, a sweet bride and a group of wonderful guests are some of the ways I would describe the wedding of April and Troy.  The color palette of soft ivories, greys and greens brought the design of the wedding day all together. It was a very special day for the couple for a few reasons.  The couple included lucky money in the wedding favors for their guests who traveled from all over to share this special day with them! The lucky money was every dollar tip that April had made in her younger days that she had been saving in a shoe box for her wedding day. April had been dreaming of her wedding since she was a little girl, however, at one point during their relationship Troy mentioned that he would “never” get married!

Urban Garden Wedding at Moniker Warehouse

The Vision

When we began the design with bride Claudia nearly a year ago, we adored everything she had envisioned. We loved the venue space; it was perfect for her idea of a garden like setting with an urban feel. It was also a beautiful concept in which to incorporate elements from the couple’s faith to complete a very perfect and original design.
