Sarah with Cuttings created all the florals, as well as custom making this great ring pillow happily carried by Lisa’s son (and because he was old enough, it was O.K. to tie the real rings onto the pillow… something I do not recommend for the young ring bearers!)
The guest count was 36… so intimate, so perfect and so Lisa and Darren. Just very close family members and special friends. Guests sat at three long tables.
The exquisite menu cards, printed on shimmery paper, included the fleur de leis design.
I surprised Lisa & Darren with hand-made pearl studded initials to mark their chairs.
The remarkable Carissa of Sugar & Spice
incorporated fantastic gold stamped fleur de lei patterned paper to line the dessert platters and plates – a perfect touch. She also had cute ribboned signs made to identify the flavors of the many small bites. The salted carmel truffles were poured into fleur de leis shaped molds. Fantastic!
Beautiful wrought iron candle towers adorned the buffet table.
I was thrilled when Lisa & Darren took me up on my suggestion to have a strolling table-side magician entertain the guests during the cocktail hour. What a riot! Guests were laughing, amazed, stumped and so curious.
Darren spent some time in Japan, and Lisa has Japanese heritage, so they gave as a favor, a lovely wrapped box with unique saki cups. I love this photo… Jennifer with The Memory Journalists
is just Thee Best. She set this shot up perfectly.
Merci, Lisa & Darren for allowing me to help you with your wedding planning. It was a perfectly lovely day. Laisser le Bon Rouleau de Temps!
