You’re Invited Plans a Gorgeous Green, Gold & Purple Wedding at The Noah Liff Center
Friday, October 12, 2012
Today's real wedding is a guest blog post by You're Invited Events who worked with the couple to conceptualize and plan this wedding at the Noah Liff Opera Center last fall. We especially love the rich color palette they picked that added a lot of elegance to the already beautiful interior of the opera center. Thank you Jonathon Campbell Photography for sharing the photographs!
Wedding Feature: Jamie & Billy's Fall Wedding by You're Invited Stationery & Events
When I first met with Jamie to start designing and planning her wedding, I knew we were going to have a fabulous time together. I became instant friends with her and her mom, Sharon. They were a blast to work with on this November 2010 wedding.
Jamie knew from the beginning that she wanted to incorporate deep purples, greens, and golds into her color scheme. She wanted to utilize really rich fall colors, but in unique ways than traditional “harvest” color schemes.
The ceremony and reception were both held at the Noah Liff Opera Center here in Nashville on Thanksgiving weekend.
I absolutely fell in love with Jamie’s dress from The Bride Room in Green Hills. I am a huge fan of ruffles, and I loved this wedding dress.
One of my favorite elements of this wedding was “flipping the room.” When you have your ceremony and reception in the same site, often times it’s necessary to utilize the same space but for different reasons.
For this wedding, we utilized the balcony lobby for the ceremony and kept the airwall between the lobby and the main room closed. As guests sat down to a formal seated dinner, my crew and I flipped all of the ceremony furniture and converted it to an after-dinner lounge. We removed all of the ceremony chairs, moved in a bar, added lounge furniture, changed the colors in the lighting and added new florals to the hightop bar tables. We also added custom pillows to the lounge furniture, courtesy of the bride’s mom who is an interior decorator. I think one of my favorite moments was when we opened the air wall, and the guests got a glimpse of the lounge for the first time!
One final set of images I want to show highlights the Cake Bar we did with Jay from Maple’s Wedding Cakes. It was the first time it’s been done at a wedding reception, and it was a huge hit! Jamie and Billy picked their signature cake shot which was a pancake shot (butter pecan with maple buttercream). Each “shot” was served in a mini shot glass and came with a miniature spoon.
Other custom shots served included:
Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream,
Peach cobbler with peach buttercream,
Orange dreamsicle with vanilla buttercream,
Yellow butter pound cake with buttercream,
Strawberry cake with buttercream,
Lemon pound cake with buttercream,
Pineapple upside down cake shot with pineapple curd topped with a cherry,
Butter pecan with cream cheese buttercream,
and Red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream.
