On a beautiful December day, Kelly and Robert were married inside the Artisan Ballroom. A large basket of petals at the end of the aisle was provided for the children attending the wedding to scatter however they saw fit down the aisle before the ceremony began.
Underneath a candle arch decorated with green and purple hydrangeas, the two said “I do.” The bridesmaids’ dresses were pewter and the girls carried bouquets of purple anemones, green hanging amaranthus, purplw freesia, and green button chrysanthemums.
The bridal bouquet also featured a delicate array of purple anemones, green hanging amaranthus, purplw freesia, and green button chrysanthemums paired with purple delphenium and hand-tied with purple satin ribbon topped with a green satin ribbon bow.
The boutonnieres also featured the striking purple anemones.
After the ceremony, the ballroom was transformed from ceremony site to reception site. The tables featured ivory floor length linens with bright and cheerful lime green toppers. Purple flowers stood out brightly in the center of the tables. And a sweetheart table in the center of the room was set up for the newlyweds.
The guests were treated to passed appetizers and then gathered together for a plated dinner, with the option of a winter salad with dark greens, beets and citrus or marinated seared prawns with bruschetta for the first course.
For the second course, guests had the option of grilled chicken and bread stuffing with carmelized onion, bacon, and apples; or acorn squash stuffed with apricots and cornbread; salmon with an herb crust and wild rice stuffing.
For dessert, the bride’s cake featured white icing with brown chocolate stems and purple waxflowers. The groom’s cake featured purple and green satin ribbon with an ivory modeling chocolate dot pattern resembling their wedding invitations.
Blue Mist Band provided the entertainment and kept everyone dancing. For the kids, the couple provided bubbles and cupcakes. It was a beautiful winter wedding with a upbeat, modern sense of style.
