The Bride Holly Iberg, 27, a photography teacher at Grafton High School in Yorktown The Groom Erik Conradi, 28, a sales associate The Date August 7 “Being an art teacher, I have a special love for all colors; it seemed crazy to narrow it down to a few,” says the bride. Then Holly noticed a pattern in her home decor -- lots of Tiffany blue with pops of red. “It was a little different and not too girly,” she says. The couple chose that combination as the dominating color scheme, incorporating modern graphics with navy blue and other hues into the mix.

These sweet favor/menu cards shared information on how to get a 4x6 photo favor on one side and had the menu printed on the back.
Holly and Erik exchanged vows in a traditional Christian ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Newport News, where they met and still live.
Holly’s bridesmaids wore summery J. Crew dresses in her signature blue color, matching the bride’s Tiffany blue shoes.
To make their guests feel special, Holly and Erik wrote personal messages on white cards (200 of them!) and attached them to printed scrapbook paper.
A lush bouquet of deep red roses was simple, elegant and matched the celebration’s color palette. “I love how the flowers really stood out next to my dress,” says Holly.
A friend designed cards with sweet, love-inspired phrases on top to be used in lieu of a guest book. A few of the cards were framed in advance to show everyone what to do.
Holly used the same printed paper from the escort cards to matte the modern-font table numbers in red print and white frames.
The guys wore classic navy suits to complement their pale-blue shirts and the ties made from extra bridesmaid dress material.
A friend of the couple baked more than 350 cupcakes wrapped in Tiffany blue paper designed by the bride.
