Real Wedding Story: Samantha & Ian

Samantha and Ian's intimate November wedding really emulated a season of love and togetherness. They wanted their wedding to include their closest family and friends and opted to have their ceremony and reception that would match their intimate wedding vision. Vinology in downtown Ann Arbor was the perfect setting for their 50 guest wedding ceremony and reception. 

We worked with Samantha to help to narrow down her vision for their wedding look. Deciding on a navy, silver and white color scheme using soft white floral, greenery and lots of candlelight. The natural brick walls and draping in Vinology really amplified their design once we added in mahogany chiavari chairs with sashes and sequins wraps. Accessory tables and their sweetheart table were accented with silver sequins and silver was also featured in some of their centerpiece cluster vases. One of our favorite touches was the navy candlesticks that were highlighted on every table, creating such a romantic look. 

Samantha and Ian are such a genuine and authentic couple and we were so happy to pour our hearts into making their wedding day perfect! 

Congratulations Samantha and Ian, we wish you so much happiness!

 For the reception, we flipped the room with navy linens, navy candlesticks and floral cluster centerpieces, creating a soft, candlelit look.
