For a party planner like me, our wedding was the ultimate project! The color scheme I chose for our wedding was hot pink and yellow. They’re two of my favorite colors, and since we got married in August, I didn’t want any boring hues but a palette with some real summer “pop” to it! And yes, there are ways to use vibrant colors while keeping things elegant, and there are also ways to choose “feminine” colors without alienating the guys.
We had a traditional church wedding and a formal reception at a beautiful new venue, so I wore an elegant ball gown style dress to fit the occasion. I was blessed to have gotten my dress at the famous Kleinfeld’s in NYC (of Say Yes to the Dress fame). My Mom and I worked with Camille (a regular on the show and the sweetest consultant who made me feel so comfortable) and my gown was custom designed by the incredible Pnina Tornai herself (who was wonderful and made me into a princess for a day!) Such fabulous details on this dress, including all the hand-placed Swarovski crystals!
Our wedding was a dream day and definitely one of our happiest. It is so true when people warn you to enjoy every second of your wedding day, because blink and you’ll miss it (especially the food!)
I love having pictures of the laborious but oh-so-worth-it details! Two of my favorite details were the guests’ place cards which were photos of us holding up table numbers, and the monogram I designed which was woven thoughout the day…even made into chocolate favors (with edible ink!)
