I have to tell you the truth…I’ve had the photos and video from this wedding for quite some time. Sybil and Eddie were married last August and this blog post has been on my “To-Do” list for ages. But I haven’t been able to bring myself to blog the wedding! Blogging a wedding kind of means the wedding is really over. It’s wrapped up all pretty with the images and video and sent out to the world as a complete package. And if I’m being honest, I’m not ready to let go of this baby. I’m not ready to say good-bye! I worked with Sybil & Eddie for over 18 months planning and designing detail after detail after detail that culminated in one of my all time favorite weddings. Enjoy the photos and I’ll do my best to try to capture the magic of the day and explain the many intertwining personal touches from start to finish!
What did I tell you? It’s awesome couples like this that make me SO HAPPY. So let’s break it down. Sybil & Eddie (known better as Edybil) had a number of elements to incorporate in the wedding. Wood, citrus, geometric shapes were the primary textures. Succulents were a must. And mixed metallics brought all the pieces together. I’ve coded each of these terms so you can follow below how they each were layered again and again!
Eddie and his groomsmen sported wooden boutonnieres, with geometric bowties, dress shirts and socks. Eddie even finished his tie with a wooden tie clip. Sybil had custom wooden hangers engraved with bridesmaids names and each of them rocked a metallic heel with their floral print 2 piece ensembles. Sybil herself accessorized with a metallic watch, jewelry and belt (that BELT!!). Sybil loves monkeys and we tried our darnedest to get monkey orchids for her bouquet — unfortunately, they weren’t available so Layers of Lovely incorporated brown monkey tails and miniature monkey charms in her bouquet along with air plants, dahlias, peonies and succulents. The bouquet was tied with lace and finished with photos of her parents.
A pre-ceremony cocktail hour was hosted in Ravello Lounge at The M Resort. Edybil became engaged using a caricature artist in Southern California (they have a robust collection of caricatures) so an artist was hired to draw all the guests throughout the evening. Guests sipped on sorbet infused champagne and citrus infused waters while a sax player entertained on stage. Custom cocktail napkins with a metallic, geometric design were used for drinks and butler passed hors d’oeuvres. If you need instant cash sell gold jewellery Adelaide
As guests made their way to the poolside ceremony, a stage was covered in a geometric fabric, sewn by Sybil! On top, a wooden arch was assembled for their altar. Hanging geometric shapes held beautiful florals and wooden boxes flanked each side of the altar filled with citrus fruits. During their ring exchange, Sybil surprised Eddie with a custom wooden wedding ring (you’ll see photos in their wooden ring box!).
After the ceremony, it was up to the best view in Vegas at the LUX event space. Upon arrival, guests found their escort card from a custom made life size geometric wooden art piece. Eddie had designed a number of geometric shapes to use at the wedding, so we took this shape to a carpenter and had a custom piece made, with geometric wire for wooden escort cards to hang. The escort cards used Eddie’s geometric designs to for each guest to find their table. The tables were split between 3 designs. The first design featured a long wooden table with a white charge plate, grey napkins, coral floral and geometric terrariums filled with succulents. The second and third table designs used a grey geometric table linen with white chargers, coral napkins and tall or low centerpieces in wooden vases. Metallic votive holders and citrus fruits accented all 3 tables designs and a hand calligraphed wooden place card at was placed at each seat. Every table held a wooden table number with a geometric design on a wooden disc. On each side of the Head Table, a display of wooden crates held overflowing florals, geometric baskets filled with citrus fruits and accented with air plants and succulents.
Dessert featured not only the wedding cake — a naked cake with flowers and succulents on a wooden cake stand, but also a variety of petite treats and coffee enhancements all served on wooden charger plates with wooden utensils and wooden signage. Is your head spinning? Talk about l-a-y-e-r-i-n-g. I’m pretty sure I’m missing 1 or 2 (or 10) elements involving their textures and details, but I think you get the idea. Check out the incredible line up vendors who made this beauty come to life, but special shout out goes to the incredible EDYBIL for being a super, beyond amazing, thoughtful, generous, creative couple. I LOVE YOU!!!
