Coordinated by Lucky You Productions, this beautiful wedding took place at Graham Chapel on the Washington Univiersity Campus.  During the ceremony, each mother gave a touching speech to the couple. There wasn’t a dry eye in the Chapel!

The stunning (non-tradional) wedding dress is an original design and the flowers, by Wildflowers, were a perfect match.  Officiated by the Bride’s Brother, the ceremony included a mix of traditional and Jewish wedding customs.

Held in the fall, at the Chase Park Plaza, the wedding design featured hard and soft elements featuring wood and baby’s breath. A mix of square and round tables added diversity to the room.  Lenny Klinger’s Galaxy Band kept the dance floor full the entire night with the Hora being a highlight of the evening! Mazel tov to the happy couple!

PS: More images of the reception to come!

Pop! Goes the Color!

By Amanda Schoenbaum, Lucky You Intern
with assistance from Rachel McCalla, Weddings and Events Director

The tradition of a bride wearing all white is definitely changing. Adding a pop of color to the dress, shoes, makeup can be exciting, unique and make a statement.

Adding color to your dress can be done in a variety easy changeable ways. For example, adding a vibrant colored tulle under the dress will add a fun element to your pictures. Images by weddingelegancesd.com

 

 

 

 

Another popular way to add color is with a fabric sash or flowers.  More and more brides are staying traditional at the ceremony and then “jazzing” it up at the reception. This is a great way to add color and style without breaking the budget!

Picking shoes with a pop of color is an easy way to keep in the tradition of wearing a white dress. In today’s market, shoe color is limitless! However, most brides stick with their color scheme while others decide on blue shoes to represent their something blue.  Super cute!

Playing with makeup can be a beautiful and exciting way to add drama to their look. Make up artists we like are Amanda Willson, Michael Shed, Tami Scott, D’Shannon Llewellyn.  Please see our vendor page for more info.

 

Adding color to the veil will accent your hair and face with color with committing to ultra-vibrant make-up (which isn’t for everyone).  Perfect for your entrance at the reception!  Image by WantThatWedding.com.

With brides looking for ways to personalize their weddings, adding pops of color is an easy, effortless way to incorporate your style!

Kudos from a Happy Couple!

Rachel and Amanda,

How do we begin to thank you?! The whole wedding process is overwhelming but from the moment we found you ladies it seemed manageable. You were always helpful and professional even with our constantly changing plans and ideas. Thank you.

Rachel-You coordinated the best day of our life! We are both anal organizers used to being in control and running productions, but the day of, all of our trust was in you… And you pulled it off with flying colors! Truly Fabulous!

Amanda- The floral elements were out of this world. You transformed M’s idea board into a reality. You took ever nit picky suggestion we had to heart and really delivered. The Boutonnières were to die for and the cocktail tables were the coolest things we’ve seen, not to mention gorgeous centerpieces! Beautiful!

Your company’s name is true and we were lucky to have you ladies. Immense thanks.

Photobooths

By Ashley Norman
Intern at Lucky You Productions

Capturing candid moments of your reception guests can provide a fun and intimate view of the evening, but your photographer can’t be everywhere at once. There are a lot of options when it comes to adding a fun photo feature to your event, so we’ve rounded up some of the top ideas for you here.

Photobooth—One of the hottest options right now is a photo booth where guests can line up and put on some funny hats. Many services offer instant printing and a commemorative photo book. To see who our favorite photo booth vendors are, please visit our preferred vendors page!

Cost: $900-$1,600

Pros: Physical photos, fun party favors

Cons: Pulls guests away from the dance floor, long lines

 

Disposable Cameras—Yes it is a throwback to the 1990s, but disposable cameras are a very cost-effective option for capturing some great candid shots. But keep in mind, kids may need a tutorial on how to use them, given they’ve grown up with digital.

Cost: $10/camera + $5/developing

Pros: Cost-effective

Cons: Need to develop film, easily misplaced

 

Photography by Craig Mitchelldyer

Mosaic Photo System—The digital equivalent of handing out disposable cameras, Mosaic lets your guests instantly stream photos from their smartphones to a projector at your event. For more information visit www.MosaicPhotoSystem.com.

 

Cost: $250

 

Pros: Instant gratification, an interactive piece of art, you get to keep everyone’s photos

Cons: Guests without smartphones might feel left out.

Modern Wedding

By Heather Stankovic
Intern at Lucky You Productions

 

A contemporary (or modern) style features today’s top trends and ideas.  Sparkles and BLING are a big deal in 2012, which can fit into every part of your wedding day: starting with the invitations, including decorations, and even in your attire.  Look for layered gowns, something elegant with a touch of soft overlay (organza or tulle).  To find that sparkle, add a broach, tiara, or simple crystal necklace and earrings.  To boost those bouquets, florists are now adding jewels and broaches to the flowers, or wrapping the handle in rhinestone ribbon.

  Another growing trend is personalization.  You can personalize everything, from your aisle runner and decorations, to seat covers and napkins.

You can even personalize the glassware, bride’s garter, and your get-away car.

When you personalize your decorations and centerpieces, nothing needs to be uniform.  A growing trend is mix and match:  try some round tables, with square ones.

 

Also, add some short center pieces as well as tall ones to give your guests something different to look at and makes your reception unique.

Of course, keep your color scheme simple to tie all your pieces together.  And to add some fun into your reception, try a photo-booth or candy bar; don’t forget those guest favors!  Just as reception traditions change, so do theceremonies.  The sand ceremony is increasing in popularity and in many cases replacing the unity candle.  Instead of jars or vases, couples can also use hollow picture frames as a vessel for their colored sand; adding another touch of personalization to your wedding day.
