I absolutely could NOT post again until these pictures came in. A gigantic, humongous, serious thank you to Brad Howe of Brad Howe Photography, who I have tormented practically daily since Kerri and Chico's wedding on October 18. The below photos - of one of my favorite designs and one of our proudest creations - are courtesy of Brad.
Kerri send me literally dozens of photos and ideas for inspiration (it would take an inspiration board the size of North Dakota to capture them all), and I spent weeks gathering glassware, selecting linens, borrowing back the acrylic tables that I insanely let go to The Flower Cupboard (thank you Cathy!), printing signage and filling candy jars.
It took 9 hours to set up the reception on Friday before the event (and that was just linens and decor items - Colonial Heritage's fabulous set up team had the tables, chairs and hardware under control). The guest reaction was incredible - and almost 150 pounds of candy, ordered primarily from Oh Nuts were nearly gone by night's end.
The response was definitely worth almost a week of assembling more than 200 little brown boxes and affixing the custom monograms that Kerri had designed by I Do Originals.
Kerri and Chico were incredibly special to Williamsburg Wedding Design. Their candy buffet was just one amazing feature of their beautiful - and in very many ways, unique - wedding (anyone depart on a brand-new trash truck lately?). It was an honor to work with them. Please visit again for more photos soon (that is, as soon as Brad is speaking to me again!).
