The couple's three-tier white fondant cake had a single sugar flower that matched the one in Connie's hair.
A small box of truffles from Truffle Truffle was placed at each guest's seat.
The reception tables had small centerpieces of mixed pink and purple flowers with pink linens. Instead of table numbers, the couple chose names of cocktail drinks and listed the ingredients underneath. Glass chargers and teal napkins finished off the look.
Instead of escort cards, each guest's name was placed on a bottle of infused vodka, which also served as a favor.
Small blooms of pink hydrangeas were tied to the white ceremony draping.
Pink hydrangea and peonies were tied to the ceremony chairs with ivory ribbon.
Clear chiavari chairs created a modern look for the ceremony.
Becca Kaufman Orchestra played all night and I have to say it was the best thing to happen to our ears! Every single guest was on the dance floor from the time the music started to the time it ended, says the couple.
High centerpieces of pink, purple and blue flowers surrounded by votive candles topped the reception tables.
Connie surprised Jessie by incorporating a locket with pictures of her grandmothers who had passed into her pink and purple colored bouquet.
The lucky ladies actually won their wedding through the Eleven Eleven Wedding giveaway. “We entered the contest in March, were selected to move on in April, confirmed winners in May, and married in November,” Jessie says. “It was a whirlwind year!” The couple wore custom Mignonette gowns to fit their individual style.
Kelly from Fleur provided the flowers for ceremony and reception, and there were candles everywhere--it was magical, says the couple.
