We’ve been dying to share Marissa & Will’s surprise brunch wedding with you since this summer! Marissa and Will came to us to help them host a surprise brunch wedding. We couldn’t be happier to dive into the challenge. Marissa & Will wanted their day to feel like a bright, summery, fancy luncheon. Think wood tables in long lines on one of the cities most fun rooftops, menswear inspired napkins, calligraphy on marble slabs and some of the most gorg bright florals ever, all under a canopy of tissue paper fringe! All the fun details are below -Enjoy!
Big thanks Christian Wilson for these killer photos, he really captured the happiness and fun of the day.
With the help of the incredible Luft Balloons, we created this head table backdrop which is more than 8 feet of balloons. We can’t get over those colors!
We love all things confetti, so we weren’t going to turn down an opportunity to use some. We hand-cut this confetti to fill balloons with and tied on some handmade tassels to finish it off.
Surprise weddings are so fun to plan because you have to keep it super quiet and figure out how to let all of your guests know why they’re there. When the guests arrived we handed out custom folded cards designed by the super talented EJD Design. She also created the surprise welcome sign, menus, favor tags, and did the calligraphy for our marble placecards.
The ceremony ceiling tissue garland was one of our favorite elements of the day. We handmade over 300 feet of tissue garland in pink and gold. The garland made the most amazing soft rustling in the wind and gold garland glimmered from the sun’s reflection, it was magical! We also gave every guest a golden kazoo to help celebrate the couple when they were announced as newlyweds.
These menswear-inspired napkins from Honest Haven (my favorite west coast resource!) paired with the natural marble tile and gold calligraphy really captured the essence of the fancy luncheon. To brighten up the space and add a pop of color we brought in glassware in varying shades of blue. The blue of the napkins and glassware really made the floral pop!
The most exciting of the day had to be the custom donut wall we built for them. Just looking at those donuts makes our mouth’s water. Yum!
How perfect are these cake toppers? The groom actually handmade them, we’re so impressed!
