Gatsby + David

Gatsby and David were married at a private residence just outside of Omaha. The couple imagined an intimate ceremony and alfresco reception under the stars.

The ceremony took place on the south side of the property. The wedding party processed through the trees and up to the altar area marked by a massive oak tree. In lieu of a flower girl, Gatsby’s grandmother tossed colorful flower petals along the natural aisle before the bride processed to the altar. Due to rain predictions, we covered the dinner area with a clear-top tent, so guests could comfortably enjoy their family-style meal. Ice cream sandwiches made with artisan gelato and Goldenrod Pastries cookies were served for dessert. Guests ended the reception by dancing to live music to celebrate the newly married couple.

Erin + Dusty

Erin and Dusty’s garden-inspired wedding was nothing short of amazing. The couple wanted the decor and general feel of the wedding to be very classic, timeless, and a little bit earthy. They liked the idea of having a black tie event, but at the same time, they wanted their guests to feel relaxed and entertained while keeping the reception high energy.

Dinner consisted of food stations. Classics like beef tenderloin and mashed potatoes were served as well as more adventurous options such as sushi and Thai rolls. Guests were entertained with a piano and electric violin duo during dinner, a live band for the dancing, and a fireworks show to end the evening.

Eden + Zach

Eden and Zack wanted to create a wedding reception where their guests would feel treated and taken care of without pretension. The park at Skyline Ranch, Eden’s parent’s private neighborhood, was the perfect place to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for their Fall wedding reception. 150 guests watched Eden and Zack’s nuptials under a large oak tree as geese floated in the pond behind them.

The invitation suite was designed by Zack’s sister and letterpressed by his father. Each invite was wrapped in a colorful piece of fabric and a piece of twine.

During cocktail hour, guests were able to grab a drink and sprawl out on picnic blankets or sit on wooden benches made by the bride’s aunt. A variety of lawn games borrowed from friends and family entertained guests throughout the evening. Because their wedding took place in the great outdoors, Zack and Eden opted for individual picnic dinners for their guests rather than having a large buffet. Each of the delicious dinners Attitude on Food created were placed in a cardboard box that was screen printed with a beautiful message from the couple. A large assortment of vintage glass bottles filled with flowers from the Mother-of-the-Bride’s personal garden decorated the tables.

Katie + Jimmy

When Katie and her mom, Lori, first approached our team to design and plan her June nuptials, we were immediately captivated by their grand design vision and infectious personalities. Over the next nine months, we worked to transform Happy Hollow Country Club into a welcoming environment with a refined and modern design. We focused on creating cabanas for the cocktail hour which took place on the front lawn of the country club. Our design team worked closely with Blooms and Bouquets to design wooden cabanas softened with simple linen draping. The Blooms and Bouquets team searched for vintage furniture and refurbished each piece in-house. We helped select the upholstery fabrics and focused our energy on perfecting the scale of each piece, so we could optimize each cabana’s capacity.

Our team designed the stationery suite to be minimal and timeless. The invitations were letterpressed by Inclosed Co. and included surprising touches such as the leaf patterned envelope liner and green edge painting.

Over 250 guests witnessed the couple’s nuptials at St. Margaret Mary’s Church, the location where Katie and Jimmy originally met when they were children attending parochial school. Each guest received a program featuring an illustration of the church. Despite an overcast start to the day with the threat of rain impending, the clouds parted in time for an outdoor cocktail hour on the front lawn of Happy Hollow Country Club. In lieu of a traditional guest book, Katie and Jimmy opted to use an Instax camera to document their wedding attendants. Custom cabanas were filled with soft seating for guests to enjoy while sipping mojitos (the father of the bride’s favorite drink to make when entertaining guests at home). A jazz trio added to the cocktail hour ambiance. Just as the cocktail hour was coming to a close, there was a sprinkling of rain, signaling guests to make their way indoors.

Guests were welcomed into the reception by a boxwood display with hanging monogramed sugar cookies (a favorite dessert of the bride). The cookies would later served as an end of the night treat. Long estate tables were set with centerpieces filled with peonies, tulips, hydrangea and roses. Katie and Jimmy, along with their families, toasted with Schramsberg champagne, the same champagne Katie’s parents enjoyed on their wedding night. The Galaxy Band provided entertainment for the evening, performing Lullaby by the Dixie Chicks as the couple’s first dance. Guests, including Katie’s 86 year old grandmother, enjoyed a night of dancing to the live music.

Denae + Brady

Denae and Brady celebrated their nuptials at a private residence nestled into the gorgeous Nebraskan countryside. The couple wanted their wedding celebration to feel laid-back and welcoming, so we incorporated various organic elements into the design such as textured natural linens, wood accents, and garden-inspired centerpieces. Guests were welcomed to the reception with a beautiful fresh vegetable stand, an infused lemonade bar that offered guests the opportunity to create custom cocktails, and a table assignment display that featured cotton escort cards tied with blue suede cord.

After cocktail hour, guests were directed to the tent for dinner and dancing. Brady requested a southern-influenced menu. A loaf of honey cornbread was placed at each guest table to accompany the casual buffet of brisket and bourbon bbq chicken. Traditional wedding cake served with local ice cream was the perfect ending to this summer soirée.
