Dreamy pink wedding: Amanda + Nick (Part 2)

Categories   Real Weddings

We bring you to the second half of Amanda + Nick’s breathtakingly flawless wedding! Part one gave us a close look at Amanda’s stunning Monique Lhuillier tulle and beaded gown and dazzling accessories. Now we move to the details (if you could only hear the excitement in our voice), where crystal chandeliers and tulle join together to set the perfect ceremony backdrop, sequin and ruffle table linens exist, and dahlias sit pretty in orange, pink, and peach ombre tones.

Shredded silk habatoi fabric curtains in pink and peach ombre tones helped to create a separation between the ceremony and cocktail hour.

I loved the idea of a head table but with 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen plus their dates I knew the table was going to become a huge eye sore so we decided to create a giant paper flower backdrop to hang behind the table. With hours of work and crafting parties we created the 10 ft by 10 ft backdrop using the Pom tutorial from Martha Stewart Weddings online. We used multiple shapes and sizes to create dimension as well as added in some silk flowers for more texture. It came out so amazing and turned into the perfect wedding centerpiece.

I wanted the main décor to be vibrant flowers scattered all over the barn so I searched high and low for the perfect vendor. I was lucky enough to come across an award winning Dahlia farm in Northern California early on in the process and they were able to actually plant flowers for my wedding to be ready just in time for the big day. I have to say the flowers were the most amazing things I have ever seen. They absolutely made the wedding and were incredibly affordable. I ordered the remaining flowers from a wholesaler and my bridesmaid and some friends all came together the day before the wedding to create all of our bouquets and centerpieces. It was so much fun and everything turned out amazingly.

Table linens to die for! The head table was covered in an ivory sequin linen (yeah, we said sequin linen!). Paired with the pom wall, the chandeliers and feather-beaded “Bride” and “Groom” signs – best head table ever!

Why haven’t we seen more table linens like this before? That’s it – no cocktail table should be without ruffles!

Have we mentioned how much we LOVE this wedding? Wardrobe change number two takes Amanda from a stunning Monique Lhuillier to a fun and flirty Ivy & Aster dress.

Amanda’s attention to detail and passion for creating a glamorous handmade wedding will forever inspire event designers and brides (and us!). The warmest congratulations to Amanda + Nick!

It's just a bit too much of everything, a bit overwhelming. Many of the individual elements are gorgeous, though! Love the chandeliers.

Jen @ Bijou Bride on Mar 7, 2012

So beautiful (and Pin worthy!). There are so many incredible details but I think the insane linens might be my favorite! So inspiring!!!

Monica on Mar 7, 2012

where was the reception? it looked like a barn which is what I am looking for. I clicked the link you listed for the venue but thats just a house so I am assuming that was for the ceremony?

dekalb wedding photography on Mar 7, 2012

It's certainly a dreamy wedding, and there's nothing that gets us going like barn wedding photography, so we're just going to soak all the details in a little at a time and remember them when shooting DIY weddings this spring!

jessica parks rourke on Mar 7, 2012

This wedding is overly with some of the most beautiful wedding details ever! The PomPom Wall, the silk fabric entrance to the ceremony, the bridesmaid dresses, the fact that she had her flowers grown specifically for her wedding, and that wedding video - all gorgeous and so personal!

Nick (Lucky Guy In the Photos) on Mar 7, 2012

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing day with everyone. Amanda put so much effort into this wedding. Everything turned out perfectly and we both agree that we wouldn't change a thing. And of course, I can't thank Ellie and Curtis enough for capturing all the moments the way they did. As Amanda said, it truly was a magical day.

Ashley on Mar 7, 2012

Beautiful wedding. Gorgeous floral arrangements!

Katie on Mar 7, 2012

What an incredible dress! And the whole wedding has just such an elegant, flowy vibe to it. Beautiful

Judi Powers on Mar 7, 2012

Amanda and Nicks wedding was simply amazing. But then so are they! And all their friends who came to help. The bridesmaids were some of the sweetest I have had here. Loved the way they all rallied around do do whatever was needed. My email is ijudclaire@gmail.com if you have questions about the barn. Also Lots of the props etc were from Embellish Vintage Rentals which is a part of the Dana-Powers House.

Rachel on Mar 7, 2012

Such a beautiful wedding! Was the "Love is Sweet" banner bought or made? I would love something like this for my dessert table. If it was made I'm wondering if the bride would be interested in selling it? Thanks!

Haley on Jun 19, 2013

Where are the gorgeous rings from!?

To save cash when booking airline flights, verify the round-trip rates -- even if you only want to fly one particular way to a destination. Thanks to quirky airline policies, at times it s significantly less costly to obtain a round trip to your desired locale than to fly one particular way. At least if that takes place, you can save income by getting the round-trip tickets anyway and merely not take the return flight back.

Sara on Aug 14, 2013

Where did you get your tablecloths from I'm looking for the same thing in a blush or light pink.

Angetan on Oct 13, 2013

Gorgeous bride and groom! Love it!
