Lindsay + Alex

Lindsay and Alex’s wedding design was a true reflection of their unique personalities. The foundation of the design represented Lindsay’s desire for a garden-inspired celebration with a muted color palette and romantic florals. In order to capture Alex’s personality, we added modern elements and introduced deeper tones into the color palette to give the design a masculine edge. Alex played a huge role in directing the overall vision and guest experience of their wedding day. As someone who loves to entertain, he wanted to create a unique and innovative atmosphere for their guests with surprises planned throughout the evening.

The invitation we designed set the tone for the celebration. Cheryl Dyer created an abstract floral pattern that was printed on a vellum envelope enclosing the wedding stationery suite. The modern floral design helped balance the invitation’s soft cotton letterpress paper, handwritten script, and elegant wax seal. Lyrics from their first dance song (I Would Do Anything For You by Foster the People) were foil stamped onto the envelope for a playful touch.

Lindsay and Alex were married on a Saturday evening in October in a clear top tent adjacent to the reception venue. The ceremony featured a custom gray-washed chuppah with a geometric design that was covered in lush floral blooms and greenery. Their ceremony was witnessed by just over 225 guests. A confetti canon was released when the couple shared their first kiss as husband and wife.

During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed French 75 cocktails, Lindsay’s signature drink, and a variety of passed and stationed appetizers. The dinner space was draped in white to soften the venue’s industrial finishes. We kept the guest table designs simple and functional, so guests could easily share the family-style bread and salad course before their plated entree.

Guests were directed back into the clear tent for dancing. A whiskey tasting bar, coffee cart, and 12 foot wooden bar were placed under the tent. Guests enjoyed wedding cake as well as beignets to satisfy their sweet tooth. Pizza was served from a food truck as a late-night snack. A live band from Atlanta kept the guests dancing throughout the evening.

Liz + Sean

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.

Kaitlin + Matt

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 + Patrick

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.

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.

Adrienne + Blake

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.

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.

Meredith + Alec

Meredith and Alec’s marriage was witnessed by over 450 guests on a warm July day. Their guests were treated to a carefully-curated experience that included interactive food displays, multiple live music performances, a cigar and scotch bar, and various beautiful spaces to explore in the expansive Joslyn Art Museum.

When we first met Meredith and her mom Jane, they spoke about creating a farm to fork food experience. They envisioned their guests enjoying food stations featuring wholesome and local items, and with the groom’s family rooted in agriculture, the menu needed to highlight fresh produce and Nebraska beef. Our job was to figure out how to make their great ideas come together in one well-rounded meal, optimize space in the reception layout to create the best flow for their 450 guests between each food station, and design food displays that would compliment their casual but elegant food choices. After several months of planning, it all came together. Guests enjoyed a towering charcuterie display during cocktail hour as well as passed apps. Dinner featured a farmer’s market stand filled with fresh veggies, a grilling station with chicken skewers, beef tenderloin and lamb lollipops, and a seafood station complete with a crustacean-filled ice sculpture and sushi rolls. A small army of waiters also passed around individual portions of gooey mac and cheese, chilled soup shooters, and hearty mash potatoes. Late night treats included passed petit fours and sliders accompanied by mini Dairy Queen shakes.
