Pelican Hill wedding: Nikki + Andrew

January 9, 2012

Imagine the look on Heather, of Amorology‘s face when Nikki, our bride, told her they wanted the theme of their wedding to incorporate fish and dogs. Not just that. It had to be done elegantly. Really, what does one do with that? When you’re Heather, you take that idea and run with it! First, the color palette was determined – coral would be an accent color, creams and browns as neutrals, fish scales and wood as patterns, and kraft paper and twine used as basic supplies. From there, the most adorable and creative wedding was born (fish and dogs included)!

If anyone is allowed to outdo the bride it’s the flower girl. Aside from those little cute cheeks, we’re smitten over that pretty in pink tutu dress by Fluffy Tuffies.

Heather introduced me to Courtney from Brightly Designed. The minute I walked into her studio I KNEW we’d be a great fit. I told her about our color scheme, theme, and a few details I knew I wanted (like the wood dog cut-outs, the fonts, the letterpress, the background patterns, etc.), and Courtney took everything to the next level. She did an AMAZING job with all of the paper elements. I am in awe of her creativity and talent.

The dress I ended up with wasn’t anything like I had pictured. I thought I wanted delicate lace trim with perhaps some floral details and pick-ups, and I chose almost the opposite: a shimmering Ines di Santo covered in paillettes with no lace and no pick-ups. I fell in love with the way it shimmered in the light.

We can’t get enough of the flower girl and the felted flower ring bearer pillow (made with the train of the bride’s mom’s wedding dress).

Dog lovers, this is a wedding to fall in love with! The “Please fetch your name” escort card table with sand, grass, and all the works is playful and chic.

As part of their RSVPs, N + A asked guests to send in their favorite joke. They chose 10 favorites and placed one joke at each table setting on a little card in the shape of a “funny” bone. Perfect ice breaker!

Nikki, on her flowers…I’m in love with dinner plate (or cafe au lait) dahlias. They’re huge, beautiful, and really make a statement without being over the top. I also adore succulents. I’d say we started with those, then added from there, using roses, stephanotis, hanging amaranthus, and hydrangeas. The look I was going for was sweet, romantic, and elegant with a hint of vintage and a touch of quirky. Square Root went above and beyond my expectations with all of our flowers and decor. It’s pretty exciting to see the work of all of your vendors come together in the end; they each did a beautiful job that really reflected our tastes and personalities.
