A Classic, Romantic Wedding at Golden Glow Ballroom in Saginaw, Michigan
A mint green and heather gray palette accented with blush and gold set the soft, romantic tone that Bridget Blaylock (21 and a college student) and Eric Klingenberg (20 and a college student) envisioned for their classic wedding. The lovely color combination showed within the wedding party's look: the mint ties, the knee-length bridesmaid dresses, the pink carnation and baby's breath bouquets that matched the single blush carnation and baby's breath boutonnieres. Bridget and Eric had their traditional ceremony inside the Trinity United Methodist Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where white ribbon tied into bows decorated the ends of wooden pews. The reception at Golden Glow Ballroom in Saginaw, Michigan, lived up to its name with scattered candles lighting the entire space, creating a romantic glow for the evening's festivities. Guests sat at their tables marked with sparkling gold table numbers and took home mint favors with white and gray zigzag wrapping with tags that read "Mint to Be," tying back in with the day's palette. There's nothing like ending a classic occasion with a classic cake—a lovely two-tier white wedding cake with pink carnations decorating the base, to be specific. "My advice to brides is that there are many things you can do yourself to save you money, but also to not get lost in the little details," Bridget says. "The important part of the wedding is that you're marrying your best friend."
