How often do you hear, “and the bride wore….wings“? That is exactly what our bride Katie did for her and Nick’s romantic nuptials at Rockwood Woman’s Club this last October. While the wedding was on Halloween, Katie and Nick did not want a Halloween-themed wedding, but they gave a nod to it with a few touches that were quite captivating.
The entire event had a magical woodland feel and touches of whimsy throughout and bride Katie seemed to float down the aisle. The floral designs both for the personals and the event decor itself were described as “other-worldly” and contributed to the ambiance that made guests feel that they had stepped into another dimension.
This incredibly unique wedding blended fun and romantic elegance with some unexpected twists and we loved the menu Katie and Nick chose, which included some of the best flavors of Autumn.
Special Touches: In a nod to Halloween: caramel apples to accompany passed hors d’oeuvres; Some centerpieces contained jars of candies and children were invited to go “trick or treat” at each guest table; For fun: Group dance to the song/routine Thriller; Escort cards that doubled as favors (bookmarks).
