Lauren and Jim's wedding took place on January 16, 2010 in New Haven, Connecticut. With their reception held at the New Haven Lawn Club. Centerpieces consisting of deep vibrant purple hydrangea, olives, lavender roses and 'creme de la creme' roses, seeded eucalyptus and lemon leaf. Some in chocolate footed urns with two handles and taller centerpieces in a slender glass vase. I found the containers for her centerpieces from R&S Baskets in Massachusetts. We added a ton of candles around every centerpiece.
The bride stopped at Ikea the week of the wedding and picked up a ton of pillar candles (various sizes) and made a dramatic pop to the fireplace in the dining room. The bride's family is from Texas and mom helped her plan from there. The bride and groom handmade truffles for their wedding favors. She had an Aunt who hand painted a "family tree" for their sign-in guest book, which they will now frame and put up in their home. It was just gorgeous!! I found this to be so very unique and different!
