TO the Feathered Arrow blog. I'M Kari! A WEDDING PLANNER, PODCAST HOST, BIZ EDUCATOR, AND A LOVER OF COFFEE, ALL THINGS OUTDOORS + A SUCKER FOR A GOOD LOVE STORY.
Something I really loved about Lindsey + Matt’s wedding, was that even though it was simple and minimalist in design, it was big on the wow-factor. We incorporated clear acrylic elements everywhere from the card box, to the aisle podiums to the seating chart. This truly allowed the bold autumn color palette to command focus. The bridesmaids wore rust colored dresses and groomsmen had matching ties. We used cool grey napkins and deep green blankets for guests as favors. All of these colors tied together seamlessly.
It’s a well-known fact that I am a huge sucker for donuts. They’re simply my favorite dessert. So whenever my clients opt for them as wedding desserts, I’m so on board! Which is incredible because I’ve had some pretty creative clients over the past few years that have taken donut displays to the next level. As evident by this wedding, this wedding, and I can’t forget this wedding! Lindsey + Matt spoke to my heart when they envisioned a giant donut wall with the simple lettering of DONUTS at the top. It was perfect and delicious! (More donut inspiration can be found here and here. Okay, maybe I should just do an entire blog post dedicated to donut content?)
If you’re looking for ways to surprise your spouse-to-be, take a note from Lindsey and rent a vintage red car for photos! The car she rented was Matt’s favorite! Lindsey took it up one notch with a custom leather jacket that spelled “Mrs. Fitzemeyer” on the back, adding an edge to the whole photoshoot with the car! I absolutely love that they have this memory from their wedding day forever. For more getaway car inspiration, check out this wedding, also at Triunfo Creek. You should also see this Triunfo Creek wedding where the bride used the car during the ceremony. Her dad drover her up in an amazing car!
