On July 9th, 2016, we had the pleasure of hosting the wedding of Rick and Jan Lehman. This was a very special occasion, as this was the first wedding we have planned for family members. Rick and Jan wanted casual and fun, with the feel of a family picnic. We had great music, delicious food, cornhole games, and karaoke in the evening. All in all, a great day!
We provided planning and coordination, stationery, decorations and florals.

Plum and Persimmon Inspiration Board
Purple and Orange are colors typically associated with fall, or Halloween. However, I think they make a very striking and stylish color palatte for a wedding. You can use this for most any season, and you can change the shades of the colors to suit your needs. For spring, you can use peach and lavender, for summer, a royal purple and coral, for the autumn and winter, shades of plum, eggplant, aubergine, rust, pumpkin and persimmon. Your colors can be played up in your table linens, flowers, uplighting, even wedding party fashions. The options are endless. And of course, don’t forget the one food item that always goes well with these colors: chocolate!! Enjoy!!
I felt it was time to add another inspiration board to my growing collection. Shades of purple and silver have been favorites of mine to use for some time now. It’s a very regal combination, and can be used in every season of the year. In the spring and summer, you can use lavender and lilac. In the autumn and winter months, you can use plum, royal purple, eggplant, slate and charcoal grey, and pewter. Around the Christmas holidays, you can jazz things up with jewel tones and sparkling silver. The possibilities are endless.
I see this board as being used for a late summer to mid-winter affair, with colors and textures being rich and plentiful. A true feast for the senses. This is where you can indulge in velvets, satins, silks, and lush bouquets of calla lilies, roses and other blooms. Imagine the walls of your event venue being splashed with washes of red and blue lighting to compliment your tables. Picture your event with lots of romantic candles everywhere, and the heavenly scent of your flowers in full bloom, atop gleaming silver candleabras, and shimmering tableclothes. Sound good? I can’t wait to bring my ideas to life! Enjoy!
Purple is reported to be one of the hot colors for weddings in 2008. I have put together this board to give you some ideas when planning your wedding. Enjoy!
