Liz and Sean’s wedding design was influenced by the natural stone and European-inspired architecture incorporated throughout the courtyard dining space at The Magnolia Hotel. A color palette of soft taupes, warm ivories, various shades of mauve, and accents of gold and rose gold was paired with a variety of textures with Old World references and romantic qualities: stone, handmade paper, velvet, organic-styled florals, and intimate lighting.
We helped Liz select bridesmaid gowns in both dusty blush and cinnamon rose. The female attendants wore various dress styles which added visual interest to the wedding party photos and ceremony lineup. The groomsmen (which included Sean’s FIVE brothers) wore blue suits for a fresh take on traditional menswear.
The stationery, featuring warm grey text pressed into thick hand-torn paper, provided a sense of tactile elegance while the simplistic layout and typography added modernity to the traditional printing techniques. A blush and gold marble pattern, another nod to the European design inspiration, was incorporated into both the invitation envelope liner and the tiered wedding cake.
We designed the dining space to feel intimate and welcoming. Long dining tables promoted lively conversation while string lights adorned with green vines created a canopy of light and life above the wedding guests. The tables were draped with ivory linens with a brocade velvet pattern. The table flowers brought the rich color palette to the neutral dining area. The centerpieces were arranged in an organic/earthy style. Lush blooms were artfully arranged in weathered ceramic pots. Vineyard chairs added to the organic quality of the dining tables. The place settings featured taupe lace chargers, rose gold flatware, and deckled menus. Truffles, made by the mother of the bride, were packaged as favors and place cards for the guests.
After dinner, guests were treated to wedding cake made with spiced autumn squash as well as ice cream sundaes featuring a scoop of His and Hers flavors.
Steph and Tom had a very clear vision of what they wanted for their wedding day. It was important for us to translate their refined, but effortless personal style into their wedding day design. The couple was married over Labor Day Weekend. Their ceremony and reception took place outside in The Holland’s courtyard. A major emphasis during the reception was on the food and drink, so an approachable but elegant menu was developed with wine pairings. We created a simple but organic reception space for guests to dine under twinkle lights.
Kaitlin and Matt were married in mid-June. The couple chose Lauritzen Gardens to host their reception, so we used the venue’s lush botanical setting as the main inspiration for their wedding. Once Kaitlin shared a photo of her sleek wedding gown with us, we knew we needed to add a modern and sophisticated twist to their garden-inspired wedding. We used a pressed flower motif to add a bold graphic element to the stationery suite. Real pressed flowers were attached to the ceremony programs, and champagne-flavored lollipops with edible flowers adorned their modern escort display. In lieu of cake, guests enjoyed various flavored cheesecakes to enjoy while dancing under the glowing lights strung across the Floral Display Hall.
Quinn and Patrick’s wedding is one we will surely never forget. Quinn has impeccable style, and when she mentioned she wanted her wedding design to inspired by Kelly Wearstler, her favorite interior designer, we were immediately on board. The celebration was centered on a classic black and white color palette, and in true Kelly Wearstler style, we mixed in a collection of bold patterns accented with mixed metallics. We played with textures – from black liquid-smooth place cards to gold spiked “sea urchins” nestled among each centerpiece filled with ruffle-y spring blooms. The result was a wedding that felt more like an intimate dinner party rather than a buttoned-up reception. The celebration was warm and welcoming, and most importantly, it was focused on a vivacious couple that is so clearly meant to be together.
It was clear from our first meeting that Kary and Paul wanted a unique and energy-filled wedding. Their celebration took placed at The Diamond Room nestled in downtown Omaha. The couple wanted the ceremony to feel relaxed and intimate, so champagne was passed to guests as they arrived. Kary and Paul’s three daughters highlighted the ceremony as they walked down the aisle together and stood at the boxwood altar with their parents.
Paul wanted the reception to feel interactive and sophisticated, so we turned the reception venue into a space that felt more like a glamorous club with white draping to soften the industrial features of the space. We incorporated a mixture of soft seating, high tops, and smaller sit-down tables to encourage guests to get out of their seats and explore the food stations, whiskey tasting bar, and dance floor.
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 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.
Adrienne and Blake were married on a beautiful day in April. Their ceremony took place at First Presbyterian, a grand church in downtown Omaha. After guests witnessed their union, they made their way to Joslyn Art Museum for cocktails, dinner, and dancing. Adrienne’s vision for her wedding was classic and timeless with tables layered with flowers and touches of gold. Guests were greeted on the museums’ grand staircase with passed canapés and the couple’s signature drink – Rosé with St. Germain. A string quartet added to the ambiance. Guests then moved into the Fountain Court for dinner followed by dancing.
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.
