The June wedding of Jill and Dave at the West Shore Cafe kicked off our past wedding season with a bountiful feast of eye-grabbing details thanks to the scrumptious bright yellow Jill is so fond of. Her wedding color palette comprised of bright yellow, pewter silver/grey with whites and creams was sophisticated and current.
Jill and Dave didn’t want anything too traditional with their wedding and strove for a modern, unique yet elegant touch to their special day. Standing together with their closest friends and family seated nearby, all eyes were on them during the ceremony as they opted to not have a wedding party. Another modern change, in leiu of a classic ‘presentation’ wedding cake, they opted for a passed dessert of lemon blueberry mascarpone cake.
Other current touches included faux paper grey flowers mixed in with the real blooms in Jill’s bouquet. This brought a color and texture spectrum not normally found in nature to the mix – absolutely stunning. The faux flowers could be found as well throughout the reception including the dining table centerpieces.
Floral rosettes cascaded down Jill’s gorgeous gown and this fabric was mimicked in the backing of each formal invite. A fresh bright yellow dot motif was carried throughout from the invites to the reception accessories – all by Angela Dal Bon Custom Invitations and Announcements.
Jill & Dave exchanged vows at the end of a long, dramatic pier. Modern, bold and slightly edgy arrangements on silver pedestals in clear vases elevated the “floating” flowers to new heights and nodded to the Lake Tahoe water just inches away. Bright yellow pomeander balls flanked the aisle and together with pewter silver were an exceptional color combination.
White floral orbs graced the ceremony and cocktail hours along with the visually delightful bright yellow. Yellow callas presented in clear fishbowls added another unique floral design to the list by Bellissima Floral.
The clever yellow dot motif popped up again on the escort cards and table numbers. The center of the long dining tables overflowed with white pillars, hydrangea, orchids and callas. More pops of the bright yellow awaited each guest at their place setting.
This isn’t the only glimpse of this wedding you will see, there is lots more to come of this gorgeous wedding… stay tuned!
