Ashley and Dom were one of the many referrals this year that came from a past client – Ashley works with my former bride Valeri.  Love when that happens!

Ashley and Dom’s wedding was smack in the middle of the rainiest spring I can recall in my entire career. Multiple weddings this spring were forced inside for rain, wind or both.  Even weddings that had no outdoor component had to deal with the crazy weather and Ashley and Dom’s was no exception.  As soon as the guest shuttles pulled up to The Ivory Room, the skies opened and the wind started blowing sideways.  Thankfully the bridal party was already inside but we had some soggy guests!

The couple had fun with the cocktail hour food, designing their stations around their heritage including a German and Italian station plus a yummy BBQ station as well.  Ashley wanted bright colors and clean stripes to offset the dark wood floors and big windows of the Ivory Room.  We included some gold in the centerpieces and they complimented the gorgeous gold and ivory cake!

One of my favorite touches was one most people never saw – Ashley had a heart made from her grandmother’s dress with both her grandmother and mother’s initials and wedding dates embroidered in blue.  Such a special way to keep two very important women close to her on the big day.

Thank you to Julian Allen for the pictures!
