So, my Bloomers, last but not least, I reveal to you Amy and Kumbo's wedding, a wedding we planned, designed AND decorated this summer (we don't usually plan, but this project was just way too cool!), and we've been DYING to blog about it. Amy and Kumbo, perhaps the neatest people I know, are one of the few couples that wanted something like Shayna's Bloomer's circus wedding, but actually meant it! Amy (you've already glimpsed her amazing house!) wanted something untraditional, fun, and very colourful with lots of patterns just like her lovely house...and then...she just let us go and do our thang! It was SO MUCH FUN to mix all these colours, textures and patterns, AND come up with different ideas and stations for the guests. The result? The most down to earth, bohemian-esque, real but totally cool and stylish wedding. All photos are taken by the brilliant team at Ikonica...it was hard choosing even these photos because they were ALL SO BEAUTIFUL (there are 43 here, sorry, but i just couldn't get it down to less!). I have ordered the photos so you can experience the wedding as if you were there...thank you Amy and Kumbo for letting us be a part of your wedding, it was truly an honour.
this, my friends, is a beautiful couple.
look how gorgeous the bride is...
bridal party in mismatched but matching attire!
each table has a different coloured table runners alternating solid with patterns (a planned mismatch)
the tables...funky floral arrangements in real vintage aqua mason jars, with a sprig of mint to smell fresh (and it worked!)
and pinatas galore, filled with candy (and happy to say they were all broken by the end of the night). Thanks to Lynn Bloomer again :)
mini slate table numbers...note the table runners...guests ended up wearing these on their heads at the end of the night for the dance...awesome!
a shot of the ceiling with all the paper flowers and pinatas...lynn bloomer's muscles surely must have been hurting after putting these all up... but so worth the pain!
each place setting had a paper flower (all different colours, but a strategic mismatch), with their place card attached on tea-stained seating card with a Moroccan lamp stamped on it
we wrote wine lists with chalk on bigger slate chalkboards, hand stained to match the rest of the look, and set them on each table
this photo booth pic CRACKS me up. look at the backdrop ... it's Amy's shower curtain...the original inspiration source for the entire wedding!
the guest book was a giant chalkboard that guests could leave notes on...amy has since fixed this to her wall in her kitchen
the groom...he is so silly with his paper flower stuck in hair, but he is delivering a speech that seriously changed my life..a most heartfelt speech that actually made me cry...getting tingles just thinking about it again..definitely favourite moment of the night
i would kiss him too after that speech!
Station 2: Cupcake table! These cupcakes deserve multiple pictures. Made by the talented Natalie Ott, they were serious works of art. And totally looked like the paper flowers.
the patio where Amy and Kumbo meet for the first time that day...and more paper flowers draped under the umbrellies.
we hung our own colourful curtains up... and used all of Amy's pillows from her house to make the lounge chairs pretty and comfy
