{Real celebration} A Touch of Vintage

It was a perfect day with the sun shining and a slight breeze in the air.  A gorgeous bride, a dapper groom, both totally in love with each other.  You could see it in their eyes, their smiles and in their first kiss as husband and wife!  What a privilege it was to share that special day with Nia + Johan. 

As frequent beach goers, Nia + Johan chose to incorporate a marine theme into their wedding along with a touch of vintage.  As the reception was going to be held at Akuna Bay marina, it was certainly fitting.  To keep the reception and afternoon teas fresh and unique, I decided to focus on the vintage look for the afternoon tea.  As it was a fun and casual affair, I came up with a summery vintage inspired picnic setting, complete with picnic baskets and gingham tablecloths in a gorgeous yellow. 

The table was filled with delicious goodies, both sweet and savoury and the kitchen was a hive of frenzy as family and friends worked hard to keep the hungry tummies filled.  Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to capture the table complete with food, there were just too many people!

{Real Love} A Silver and Purple celebration

Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of  styling a candy buffet.  It was actually a surprise wedding gift from the maid of honour to her best friend. 

Silver, Purple and White

Renate and Peter, hope your wedding day was the first of many memorable days to come!
