It seems like my couples often look to me for ideas when it comes to escort card tables and displays. There are so many ways to approach the escort card table and I love to get creative with it. Some couples want a traditional feel, where the cards are elegantly arranged and paired with beautiful floral. Others want something to wow their guests and be a conversation piece. Debbie and Chris wanted something in-between. They wanted a functional yet striking unique way to direct their guests to their tables so I sketched this idea for them:
Here’s the colorful and clever result with a personal touch! The milagros are a nod to Debbie referring to Chris as her “Miracle”. I grew up in Texas and know what milagros are but many do not if you are not in the Southwest. Milagro means miracle in Spanish. Milagros are small charms that represent an offering or a hope. The heart milagro might represent the actual heart or represent the love on person feels for another. The limes were a bright pop of color and a nod to Chris and Debbie’s love of Mexico. We also used fresh cut fruit in the centerpieces and it smelled heavenly! A huge thanks to Tabletops Etc. for getting me the limes I needed! We LOVED working with Debbie and Chris and loved this unique idea.

Laura and Cole’s wedding was featured on the Love Toast Blog recently and we think it shows exactly how beautiful a wedding in Arizona can be (and it doesn’t hurt that this couple is so in love and not afraid to show it)! We love that they chose to wake up the day after the wedding and do another photo shoot! It may have seemed like not the best idea at the time but look at the amazing product! Thanks Lauren for doing an amazing job as their coordinator!
This has to be one of our favorite mom shots ever!
The day after wedding shoot was just as amazing (and also featured on Love Toast):

I love it when weddings that I have coordinated are featured on wedding blogs and today, we have 1 wedding featured on 3 blogs! You know this is going to be good…Marney and Booth’s wedding at Desert Botanical Gardens was desert chic- it featured desert colors of avocado green and kraft brown with pops of orange and coral. It was really really pretty!
