{Wedding Details} Sparkling & Sweet

Good morning!

On Friday we gave you a sneak peek at the dessert table from our friend Erica's wedding last November. Today we wanted to show you some of the other details we did for her, and sum it up with the full details of that gorgeous dessert table!

But let's start with her invitations.
Erica fell in love with this enclosure from Meri Meri, and asked if we could design an invitation incorporating this enclosure.

For her invitation and rsvp card, we used a shimmer ivory paper backed with a white glitter card stock. 
The rsvp card displayed Erica and Adi's monogram on the top.

Both the rsvp envelope and the invitation envelope were a shimmer ivory to match the invitation.

The programs displayed Erica and Adi's monogram and were tied with a white satin ribbon.

The place cards were decorated with the same trim that graced the heart on the wedding invitation enclosure. All the tiny crystal beads give a diamond-encrusted effect.
Jillian wrote each guest's name in calligraphy.

The menus also displayed the monogram.
I love how each one had a lovely gardenia placed on top.

The sign for the sweetheart table.

Now on to the gorgeous dessert table we promised you!
Since Erica owns a bake shop, of course her wedding dessert table
would be a delicious display of decadent desserts.
She wanted to display a sign that said, "Love is Sweet." Erica wanted it to stand out but also be proportional to the dessert table. We had a few logistical challenges to figure out since she couldn't hang anything behind it (as you can see, the table is against the window). So we put our thinking caps on and figured out a way to make the sign part of the table.

We hand-glittered the letters in "Sweet," and adhered each of them to a wooden post, which was then inserted in a jar filled with decorative weights (white balls which looked like gum balls). We strung the "Love" portion of the sign on ribbon, tied it to two wooden dowels, and also anchored these with weight-filled jars. The "is" sign dangles from clear wire tied to the ribbon.

I think the effect was quite lovely, don't you?

We created the tags that labeled the desserts, and Jillian wrote the name of each delight in calligraphy.

We created heart-shaped tags for the favor boxes that said,
"Thank you for sharing in the Sweetest Moment of our lives."

The decadent spread

Well, there you have it! All the gorgeous details that made
Erica and Adi's wedding so sparkly and sweet.

Thank you, Erica and Adi, for the honor of being a part of your special day!
