Peaches and Cream

Ok… white, not cream. But you know…

I just finished an inspiration board for a potential bride. Her wedding is in New Jersey, so it would be my first wedding outside of Pittsburgh. Am I nervous? Sure. But holy cow, it will be a fun one to plan! The ceremony is set at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark. If you have the opportunity, take the virtual tour. It is enough to make even the non-religious jealous. The potential reception site is The Venetian, which is in Garfield, NJ. Again, knock your socks off beautiful. I honestly can’t wait to see it in person. With a bridal party of 23, this is no small shin-dig. And what I group it is! I met most of them at my friend Nikki’s wedding earlier this year. It will be quite the party.

The bride is so vocal with her vision and I love it. There is nothing like a bride who knows what she wants. When asked what she wanted for her colors, the immediate response was “peach and white.” When asked what theme she had in mind, she replied, “If contemporary and elegant had babies, that’s what I want.” I tossed in a little brown because I really love the idea of brown tuxes (maybe pin stripes too). Plus the groom prefers more of a suit than a tux anyway. So I went to work and I came up with this.
