It seems that every spring, Romancing the Home gets involved with planning a wedding. Last spring, it was the wedding at the Bee Hive in Boston. This year, it's the wedding of one of our own Romancing the Home's girls---- Katha's daughter, Jessica. The venue is the University Club in the city. The room is gorgeous, stone walls, massive fireplace and it overlooks Lake Michigan. The cocktail hour will be in the Library of the Club, so we decided to embrace the "book concept" and make parchment paper books for the center of the hi-tops. Using the invitation, we scanned the graphics into our computer and added the Happily Ever After, Jessica and Jason, July 10th, 2010.
Jessica and Jason are using a special monogram (J*J) , so we put that on the spine of the book, and embellished it with small crystals to add sparkle. We will add color to the centerpiece with small square vases of bright flowers, and a square votive with a floating clear candle in the shape of a diamond to add a little bling!
Stay tuned on this one - there's lots of planning still to come! I found this awesome book, Magnificent Weddings by Design, at Barnes and Noble, - I highly recommend it for inspiration, not only for weddings, but parties in general. It is one of the best books that I have ever seen - the photography is incredible!
