Today’s wedding feature is brought to you by Mimi Major Bittick of The Major Event.
When Blakely and her mother Celia first met with me I knew I was dealing with two women with a great attention to detail and excellent taste. Celia and Blakely are both interior designers and they had a very clear vision of how they wanted the wedding and reception to look. The key phrase was “rustic elegance.”
The ceremony took place at Avondale Methodist Church. We decorated very simply with two trees flanking the alter and loads of floating candles. The candlelight gave the ceremony an intimate and romantic vibe! The bridesmaids carried beautiful white bouquets of white garden roses dotted with succulents. The brides bouquet was stunning with green and white roses, succulents and dusty miller.
The church was stunning,
but the reception was the show stopper! Robert Hill Antiques is a perfect setting for an elegant wedding reception! The antiques are spectacular and the beautiful fountain in the center of the large gallery is the perfect focal point for the room.
We knew we wanted to enhance the fountain, so working with Jon we came up with a plan for a grapevine and hanging votive installation over the fountain. The result was both elegant and whimsical and set the tone for the evening. In order to bring in the rustic feeling we covered the tables with a to the floor burlap linen and placed an organza sheer overlay on top to combine the “rustic and elegant” look. The arrangements that Jon did were stunning. We kept things simple with a large glass vase and placed huge branches with fall foliage in them. The entire room felt like an enchanted forest!
Echelon catering provided a delectable buffet topped with a delicious cake made by a family friend!
The bride and groom made their exit in an adorable red VW bug and are now living “happily ever after” in Homewood, AL.
Thank you, Mimi!
