Amanda & Josh
This past October As You Wish was honored to be a part of Amanda and Josh's backyard wedding. The setting was perfect! An open, outdoor ceremony followed by a tented reception overlooking the water. Amanda wanted to incorporate some fall elements into the wedding, and she did so beautifully! Take a look!
The floral pieces were provided by Daevid's and they were absolutely stunning! He placed roses in hanging glass orbs which hung from a tree, creating a beautiful backdrop to the ceremony.
The bride carried a bouquet of calla lilies, tulips, and freesia with accents of orange hypericum berries, lily grass, and green ivy
The centerpieces incorporated some of the same floral elements in tall cylinder vases, and the head table's arrangement was placed inside a hollowed out pumpkin. The centerpieces were complimented with dainty pumpkins and gourds which were hollowed out to hold votive candles, and complete the overall look. It was the perfect finishing piece! The tables were covered in ivory linens with a beautiful swirl overlay. Gold flatware, gold chargers, and gold chiavari chairs with ivory cushions completing the decor.
Guests enjoyed the station style reception with food by Sweetwater Cuisine. Everyone raved about the mashed potato bar, and the oversized clam shell ice sculpture that showcased jumbo cocktail shrimp alongside the sushi display.
For dessert guests enjoyed this whimsical fall cake by Patti Cakes in addition to her signature chocolate cake pops, which are incredibly delicious and highly addictive by the way!
Photography was provided by the amazingly talented Chelsea Lavere with Bit of Ivory Photography. The beautiful backdrop and natural lighting was provided by God, and Blue Steel provided the rest.
This was such a beautiful wedding, and we were so honored to be a part of it! We wish you all the best Amanda and Josh!
