While we wrapped up the group shots, our guests began making their way into the venue. First stop? The escort card table.
Not only did our escort cards help everyone find their seats, they also held our favors (custom Chicago buttons from Busy Beaver Button Co.). I used a typewriter font from Dafont.com for the names and hand-trimmed each card to create a silhouette that, when the cards were laid out on the table, mimicked the chevron pattern that was so heavily featured in our décor.
We didn’t really choose a “theme” for the reception, but pulled together a color scheme of black, white, and plum with chevron stripes for accents. We worked with Kehoe Designs for all of the flowers, table settings, lounge areas, lighting…everything…and they blew it out of the water. I was so happy with the outcome. Beyond happy, really. They created custom chevron centerpieces for half of the tables and even found a way to work the ghost chairs that I loved so much into our budget. Also, a big shout out (again!) to Brian at Food For Thought for ordering brand new, opaque black wine glasses just for our wedding when he discovered that they didn’t have exactly what I was looking for. We were in such good hands and I couldn’t be more thankful. I’ll shut up now and show you pretty pictures.
What do you think? I love the way everything came together!
