Classic & Contemporary Wedding At Aria

Posted July 19th, 2017 @ 08:07am by: Erin

It's no secret that I love my job. I could fumble around with the words to explain just what makes my work so rewarding, but why try words when a single photo can explain it all! The look on the Bride's face when she sees that her dream has become reality is everything to me. I was so lucky to work with Kristen on her wedding, and over joyed that her photographer captured the moment she walked into her reception and saw all her decor and design had come together just as she dreamed.

Ok, now sappy stuff aside let's dive into the epic details of this ridiculously beautiful wedding!

Want to make a statement? Try hanging SIX chandeliers over your head table, and voila, you have a head table set for royalty!

Chandeliers were just the beginning, Kristen carried her classic contemporary look throughout her reception. The tables were draped with black and white stripe runners and decked out with gorgeous white floral a top gold risers and surrounded by glistening gold mercury glass.

Kristen wanted to make a statement with her bar. We strung cafe lights 30ft down from the catwalks to create a backdrop for her bar.

Pearls were a part of Kristen's design as well, they were scattered throughout the reception. Strands of pearls were swaged across the bride and groom's chairs and could be found dripping from the canopy of greenery centerpiece on the head table.

This photo has nothing to do with decor, but it needed to be shared. Look at the love between Kristen and her wedding planner, Casey! Casey did an impeccable job pulling off Kristen's wedding.

15 Ways to Dress A Farm Table

Posted April 6th, 2017 @ 11:04am by: Erin

15 ways to dress a farm table to make it uniquely yours.

  1. A pop of color. Include a pop of color. The color could be subtle, or bold like this royal blue wedding. Use napkins or table runners to introduce the color, this way the farm table still shows off. Shown here is our royal blue taffeta sash and royal blue polyester dinner napkin.

2. Soft and Romantic. Use flowing fabric to soften the hard wood look of the table. Don't be afraid to go a little girly and use pink! Shown here is our ivory arbor draping, pink chiffon with ruffles chair covers, and chiffon table runner.

4. Lanterns. There are so many ways to style a lantern, fill with a candle or three, add floral or greenery. The beauty of using a lantern is that they look lovely during the day and evening. Shown here are our white lanterns, champagne chair sashes, ice chiavari chairs, gold chargers, wood floral boxes, and pink matte satin napkins.

6. Lighting surrounding the table. While lighting on the table is important, lighting surrounding the table is key too. Use lighting on the wall, or ceiling around the farm table to make it the focal point of the room. Shown here are our ivory chiffon with ruffle chair covers and cafe lights.

11. Chair Decor. What you put on the table is important, but so is what you put on the chair. Use fabric, chair covers, signs, or even floral to decorate your farm table chairs. Shown here are our pink chiffon with ruffle chair covers, eggplant satin sashes, and ivory chiffon chair backs.

12. Big floral. Use big floral pieces to accent your farm table. Height is great, especially in a venue with tall ceilings. Pro tip: be sure that tall centerpieces don't block your view when you are seated. Shown here are our eggplant chair sashes, and Aubrey lace table runner.

13. Backdrop. Use a fabric backdrop to highlight your table or to hide an unsightly wall. Shown here is our taupe fabric backdrop, mercury glass candlesticks, matte satin eggplant napkins, mercury glass floral pedestal, and blush mercury glass candlesticks.

2017-02-19_0022.jpg

14. Table placement. Don't be afraid to think outside the box (or room in this case) and place your table somewhere other than in the front of the room. Your farm table can sit in the middle of the room, which is called harvest style, this way guests can sit all around you. Move your table to a space with better lighting or even bring your dinner outside!

15. When in doubt, add a horse! I find that horses make everything better!! Oh, and a full moon doesn't hurt either.

Legacy Hill Farm

Posted March 1st, 2017 @ 10:03am by: Erin

Oh, how we love early mornings decorating weddings on the farm. But not just any farm, Legacy Hill Farm, to be specific.

Legacy is one of Minnesota's newest farm venues located in Red Wing, Minnesota. Legacy stands apart from other farm venues in many ways, it is the only farm venue that has a French country inspiration. You will find soft colored woods here, wide open airy spaces, quaint areas for getting ready and small touches of country chic glamour. Legacy Hill's vibe is very much soft, simple, elegant, warm and inviting. Just as sweet as the setting are the people that run it. The owners, Joan, Britni and their families run the farm and will make you feel at home. You couldn't ask for more loving, passionate people to be helping you with your big day.

Some other cool features at Legacy are a getting ready space for the groom and his guys, a fire pit, a bar underneath the barn open to the outside, twinkling lights in the trees and the single most beautiful farm ceremony site I have ever seen!

So, how do you decorate a place that is already SOOO beautiful? Here are some design ideas from We've Got It Covered that I think enhance the beauty of Legacy Hill and make the venue uniquely yours.

Pavilion draping! The picture says is all......

Entrance draping. As you walk from your ceremony into your reception you will want to make a grand entrance. Draping the entry way into the pavilion makes a statement for you to greet your guests for the first time as a married couple!

Draping at your ceremony site. This is a place where you can decorate to make the site special to you. Some decor ideas include: draping on the ceremony arch, draping down the aisle, lanterns down the aisle, floral down the aisle or a chandelier hung on the ceremony arch.

Dress up the tables and chairs. The tables and chairs at Legacy can stand alone or can be done up to fit your style. Some chair decor ideas include chair covers, chiffon wraps or sashes. Some table decor ideas include linens, table runners, chargers, lanterns, mercury glass, wood box floral containers, and floral pedestal bowls.

A chandelier adds a touch of glamour and can be left on in the evening to create romantic ambiance and an evening photo opportunity.

Below are some images from a special wedding we got to help with. The bride wanted to incorporate her Native American heritage into her decor and her husband's western style. The result was fun and beautiful!
