After booking The Union on Eighth, Emily came to me looking for design and styling help. The groom is a big car enthusiast, so the renovated transmission shop turned wedding venue was perfect fit for him. With the beautiful, blank slate The Union offers, Emily’s prerequisite was a saturated color scheme of red and blue.
The ceremony set for 200 guests, was kept simple with a birch arch adorned with flowering branches. As guests waited for the I do’s, they flipped through a booklet with a story of day and a fun crossword puzzle. It was a complete joy working with Sarah of The Stationery Bakery in creating all of the paper goods. Post kiss, guests tossed red petals and cheered as the newlyweds walked down the aisle.
It was our goal to keep the integrity of the venue, and only add to its beauty through color and soft feminine touches. Farm tables were layered with wheat colored linen runners and a seamless combination of three various napkin patterns. Atop each place setting, guest favors of seed bombs were set. Vibrant centerpieces of garden roses, peonies and ranunculus lined the tables with terra cotta potted herbs and plants mixed throughout. Again, with a nod to the groom, vintage oilcans were placed with red taper candles.
As always, Loft Photographie absolutely captured every detail from the cake detailing to formal photos. The night ended with a sparkler send off in a vintage car. I mean, what else could we have asked for?!
