We just adore the ingenuity of this couple’s wedding planning process — tired of the same old reception foods and choices, Ashley and Dylan chose some of their favorite foods and drinks for their post-ceremony party, including some sparkling Izze drinks. We’re delighted by how well the drinks tied into the overall theme of the wedding, adding little pops of color around the day! Every gorgeous image was captured by Alixann Loosle who is sharing them with us.
From the bride, Ashley: Our theme was elegant yet simple with a colorful vintage touch. We chose a couple of elements to focus our efforts on that gave it a personal touch. The bride’s mom, grandma, and aunts spent countless afternoons hunting for the collection of vintage vases that were used for centerpieces and around the reception. I loved that each vase was unique and it was so fun to mix and match them to give each table a eclectic, yet uniform and simple look that let the gorgeous flowers shine.
Also, I loved that the pom garland gave the reception a fun pop of color. It was a DIY project by my mother. A big effort, but it gave it a pop of color without having too many decorations. Also, I am glad we splurged a little on the gold chiavari chairs. It was worth the extra money since they actually added an element of elegance to the decor so it was kind of a two for one. Something that was important to us was to have the food represent what we love to eat instead of just having the typical wedding reception food. We love finding new pizza restaurants so having wood fired pizza, Izze sodas, and his and her desserts was a perfect representation of us and what we like.
