Still reminiscing about one of our most *golden* 2012 weddings, and feel like some of the beautiful little details flew under the radar . . . didn’t want y’all to miss out! Here are some of the tidbits that got lost in the fray of the cray:
This was definitely one of my shower thoughts. It’s so fun to come up with clever ways for guests to leave their mark, and this was no exception. We worked with an antique horn dealer to source a myriad of fantastic taxidermy, which is spot on for Kalen + Parks, who avidly hunt cuz they’re that cool and Southern. We had our Blossoms buddies double mount them and spray the backs in alternating golds and grays. We affixed gold glitter tags to gold binder rings and had guests pen little notes to the happy couple and hang them on the horns. I love that this can be dismantled and easily consolidated into a hatbox or scrapbook!
Anything Cheree Berry touches turns to gold, and I feel like she was a pioneer of gold metallic foil letterpressing. The paper suite reflected the glam in that, and the programs were particularly stunning.
You know we love it when people toss stuff at other people. It’s not as mean as it sounds, no really. It just adds some levity and a little movement to the imagery! We had a local engraver work up these gorge brass julep cups for a post-ceremony petal toss, and of course an Etsy pal make these golden and white mylar pom poms to toss at the end of the night. Easy to brush off the bod, easy clean-up, golden moments!
One of my nephew’s favorite odd toys, the Bucky Balls, had to figure into the mix at this fun-filled series of fêtes. I love that my MOB Debbie couldn’t care less that “balls” were part of her daughter’s parting favor. I mean, have a sense of humor, people! They’re gold, they’re tiny, they’re fab, and we wrapped them in gold marbled paper and tied them with Cheree’s custom tags saying “We hope you had a ball!”. People clutched them to their chests like they were- drum roll- pure gold.
