Power couple Alexa and Ryan met in Law School and came to us with a vision. With a venue fit for McGeorge School of Law grads, the Tsakopoulos Library downtown suited the occasion perfectly. This November wedding presented guests with a warm color palette, candle-filled tables, and lots of personalized details including bookmark favors and handwritten place cards.

This one of a kind arbor was made by the bride's father and provided a sentimental focal point for the ceremony. To make good use of the elegant arbor, it was also used over the head table during the reception, which added dimension to the design, as shown in a photo below. Reusing floral and ceremony decor for the reception is a great way to get the most out of your budget and space!
A mixture of round and long tables give the space complexity and flow. La Tavola's velvet linens and JRE's florals make for an unforgettable layout beneath multiple stories and balconies within the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria downtown. We would love to see some bold layouts in 2018!
When a bride comes in with a unique idea, we jump. Alexa and Ryan both love the television show Game of Thrones and wanted to incorporate it into their big day. We substituted traditional table numbers for wooden signs depicting features from the show that were a perfect combination of classy and fun.
