Laurian + Jon's Wedding at a Private Residence

Real WeddingsJessica PeddicordComment

Hi y'all! I cannot believe that I let almost an entire month pass without writing  a blog post! I've gotten so swept up in school and catching up with friends that I haven't devoted enough time to my blog. But, I will start picking up the writing process again as best as I can. I've got a little treat for ya today- the recap of Laurian and Jon's wedding that I promised in August. This was surely a pretty one. It was so neat to have it at a private residence, which was the home of one of the bride's friends. It was also the last wedding that I worked with the Rebecca Rose Events team, so it was quite an emotion and fun-filled day! Take a look

Orange has creeped its way into the list of my favorite colors, and this wedding was beaming with the classic color combination of orange and blue. Rustic touches of burlap and mocha throughout the space really tied everything together (pun intended). And of course, the dinner menu, catered by the lovely miss Holly of Holly Tate Fine Catering, was as delectable as always.

I honestly don't think I'm ever going to grow tired of these striped straws. I love that they literally can be found in every color of the rainbow to be tailored to any event design. The straws, in combination with the wooden letters and single flowers in jars added such a whimsical feel to the space.

One of my favorite aspects of this wedding was the hanging flowers above the two end tables, designed by Amy Lynne Originals. They were hung by clear wire, so all the guests could see were flowers magically dangling above their tables. These really stood out once the night grew dark.

The DJ and dance floor were set up right in the middle of the dining area to allow for easy access to dancing after dinner. Laurian and Jon's wedding was full of modern details, but I love the throwback retro feel that this checkered dance floor added.

And of course, what's a wedding without dessert of some sort? This cake was so fantastic because it included the floral design that Laurian and Jon used on their paper goods. It's always such a nice touch when everything runs with the same theme or detail.

Here are the newlyweds about to cut their cake! They were such a fun couple to work with, and I'm hoping that they have been loving their first month of married life.
