Intimate Aria Nostalgia

A love of theirs is a love of mine and when Megan and Matt contacted me with a request to create a wedding based around family memorabilia, I was thrilled! Guest tables were tablescape journeys of remembrance based on their lost loved one's lives. Collected antiques represented a life's love and paying homage to that life and love was a true representation of the thoughtfulness and kindness of Megan and Matt. 

The ceremony's backdrop of elegant chandeliers and a large rustic gear set the tone for what would come when guests moved into the reception space. Farm tables added a rustic touch and dimension to the floor plan at the beautiful, award-winning venue, Aria. Memorabilia, like a grandfather's metal tool box paired with unique containers of soft and romantic purple spring floral. Photos of the family member's had me a little choked up as I placed the table arrangements. I too am one who considers remembrance as a way to let lives live on forever. I am sure that as family and friends toasted to Megan and Matt's forever love, they kept the spirits of all of life's loves alive.
