Autumn Wedding Season

Fall is a beautiful time to host a wedding! The air is crisp, the leaves are changing into hues of gold, red, and burnt orange, and autumn whimsy can finally begin to inspire your decor.

Over the weekend, we hosted a gorgeous wedding reception that featured touches of fall in the most romantic way!

Kudos goes out to Tracey Fricke of Occasion Designed, Attitude on Food, Flowers for Special Occasions, and Jones Bros Cupcakes for the cake and cupcakes. Rentals provided by United Rent-All. Blog photos by Tracey Fricke of Occasion Designed.

kicking it off right.

It’s crazy to think how quickly winter passed us by, although we admit, it was a little slow going at times… However, we couldn’t be more excited to put winter behind us and start our favorite time of the year, wedding season! Full of unique tablescapes, surprising themes, love, laughter, and all around fun, 2016 is sure to be one for the books! Be sure to keep up with all the beautiful images from this year’s weddings here on the blog. We promise not to disappoint.

We kicked this season off right with an ABSOLUTELY stunning display from Florals Etcetera and Lorraine Arthur Cakes. Let’s all just take a moment to pick our jaws up off the ground and bring our thoughts back from the English Rose Garden we’ve been transported to. Seriously though, this collaboration produced a super romantic, super whimsical wedding reception that leaves the eye wanting more. Thank goodness these amazing designers grace the Scoular Ballroom with their presence and creativity often, otherwise we might just have to start making our way around Omaha to see more of the magic.

Soft Spring Appeal

Come spring, we become all giddy with excitement because wedding season is upon us! We love the way the brides and their wedding coordinators play with the soft, subtle spring colors and incorporate the romantic side of spring into their overall theme. We especially love the floral centerpieces by Flowers for Special Occasions that were used in the wedding photos below. A special shout out goes to Tracey Fricke of Special Occasion By Design for coordinating this beautiful wedding and for capturing it so elegantly in photos! Cheers to wedding season 2015!
