Real Wedding: Monica +Elliot

Bright with a bit of whimsy were words used to describe the wedding of Monica and Elliot who shared their vows on August 21st at the La Jolla Bridge Club. The day was coordinated by the lovely Courtney Toney of Joyful Weddings and Events.

Monica's nine bridesmaids carried posy bouquets of billy balls, oncidium orchids, and china mums. Elliot and his groomsmen wore boutonnieres designed with billy balls.

Flowing turquoise satin ribbon were placed on the chairs lining the aisle. Small, medium, and large button mum pomanders resting atop cylinder vases of varying heights provided the backdrop for the ceremony.

I made a wooden box, painted it white, accented it with coordinating ribbon, and filled it with wheatgrass to serve as the escort card display. The tablescapes were designed using bud vases containing billy balls, rectangular vases containing china mums, and eiffel tower vases containing oncidium orchids. For that bit of whimsy (and a pop of orange), Monica provided goldfish for some of the tables and clocks served as table numbers.
