When I first met Amanda and Chip they were very hesitant on anything wedding; they just wanted to get to the married part. They didn’t want attention on them, they didn’t want a lot of focus on dancing, and they weren’t even sure about many of the other typical elements that fall within a wedding timeline. Even though they knew what they didn’t want, we had to find something they did want. We went through several different theme ideas as they felt that was something they could get into. Some fun ideas we crossed off like a carnival due to logistics and expenses of doing it up right. Finally a decision was made for a celestial theme since they were getting married on Leap Day, February 29, 2020.

The design pulled in blues and purples, wooden flowers (due to the bride’s allergies for florals) and natural greeneries, candles, and strung lighting with stars hanging. In addition, the theme was pulled in on the invites with the cake, signage, guest book, and funs nods towards it with custom shoes for the ladies. We wanted fun. The first look even started with Amanda dressed in a dinosaur costume before she shed the costume to show her first of two beautiful wedding dresses she wore that day. They laughed, they cried, and they celebrated their love.

Congratulations to Amanda & Chip! We wish you all the joy and happiness in your marriage.
