Ok, I’ll admit it: I’m a closet David Tutera fan. I watch “My Fair Wedding” on WE tv, and I tell Jeff that it’s valid business research. If you haven’t seen the show, David, a wedding planner, rescues brides from their DIY-planning disasters just weeks before their weddings. Jeff and I see a lot of DIY weddings. The main difference between a self-planned wedding and one that is professionally designed is often the degree to which the details of the wedding coordinate and carry the theme of the day. For example, one detail David Tutera is often changing is the dress: Brides are often eager to go shopping for “the” dress long before they’ve chosen their wedding theme. While it may be beautiful, a Victorian ballgown just doesn’t go with a funky art-deco themed wedding.
But then there was Kelly and Ivan’s wedding. Beautifully designed by Social Butterfly Events, every last detail of this wedding carried a vintage theme. Old cookie tins, and funky chandeliers were just a few of the amazing details planned by SBE, along with shabby-chic floral design by Fiore Fine Flowers. The event venue, 128 South, was the perfect mix of southern charm. Even the bride and groom were vintaged to perfection: Kelly’s stacked heels, Marilynesque cocktail gown, and birdcage veil, and Ivan’s vested suit brought the theme full-circle.
