The Bride Annie Sayles, 30, an account executive at Turner Broadcasting The Groom Brian Rogers, 29, an account executive at Google The Date September 4 Annie loved a yellow, black, gray, and white palette so much, it inspired the day's theme. Old-school details like chalkboard vases and cootie catchers added charm to the restaurant venue's modern aesthetic.

Because her dress was so simple, Annie kept her accessories delicate.
The couple decided on low yellow-and-white centerpieces after falling in love with these chalkboard vases that conveniently doubled as table numbers.
Since neither family is from the area, the couple's Ann Arbor nuptials (home to Annie's alma mater) were actually a destination wedding, so a retro-postcard-and-mailbox display worked well.
Yellow craspedia and soft dusty miller stood out against Brian's black lapel.
Reception First Dance
Craspedia pomanders added a pop of color to the white garden chairs.
Annie knew she needed a unique but simple gown to compliment her petite frame. When she saw the gathered English lace on the back of the Vera Wang dress, she was sold.
White and Peach Bouquet
The couple married on a Sunday afternoon, after hosting a Saturday tailgate party for the opening weekend of the University of Michigan football season.
The programs were printed on cootie catchers! Each petal held information about the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, and the ceremony, plus a special thank-you to guests.
Each bridesmaid wore a black dress of her choosing and carried a slightly different arrangement of cheery yellow flowers.
Both the cake and half of the surrounding trays of cupcakes were flavored with lemon raspberry-a sweet nod to the color theme.
