Pewter & Lace: A Rad Retro Wedding

Michelle and Adam had both their wedding ceremony and reception at the lovely St. Andrew’s Golf Club in West Chicago. Their colors were pewter, pink and ivory and everything had a chrome and lace feel to it.

Since Michelle and Adam have a love of old cars and retro things, we did Route 66-themed table numbers and escort cards. Since Michelle also has a girly vintage side, we did lace accents around everything and lace roses in the bouquet.

For the personal flowers, Michelle’s bouquet was one of my favorites EVER! It featured ivory garden roses, ivory Vendela roses, light pink roses, light pink and ivory spray roses, lisianthus, some silver sage foliage, pink pearl accents and 6 hand-made lace roses. It was so fabulous! The bridesmaids carried all-pink bouquets of roses with handles wrapped in pewter to compliment their dresses and the bouts and corsages were made to compliment.

The ceremony flowers included petals scattered down the edges of the aisles and 10 pink carnation pomanders hung from shepherd’s hooks going down the aisle. It looked perfect!

For the reception decor, we recycled the pomanders on top of 10 submerged cylinder centerpieces on the guest and escort card tables. All of the submerged cylinders were also wrapped in lace, and the ones on the escort card table were also wrapped in pewter satin. The other centerpieces were short, wide cylinder vases filled with petals, orchid heads and floating candles and wrapped in lace. They were simple but total chic. The head table got 2 of this type of centerpiece plus vases for the bouquets, petals and votives. The cake table also got petals and votives and the cake itself was decorated with pink and white roses, spray roses, lisianthus and silvery foliage. Michelle and Adam also used my signature rectangle card holder with retro-monogram to hold their cards.

Everything was just awesome and Tara and I LOVED working at this venue! They were so organized and very, very nice! And bonus–I also got to see my talented friend and make up artist, Cynthia Sally as she was the MUA for the day…it really was a GREAT wedding!!!

Look at these photos Tara took of the GORGEOUS Bride in waiting…

I know Michelle and Adam loved everything we did for their big day and it was a total pleasure working with them!

I wish the new Mr. and Mrs. Klenotich a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!
