letter from the editor, Wedding design has never looked so good until now. This issue is our very first wedding edition of Little Bit, we'll be sharing wedding designs from designers all over the United States. Along with exquisite tabletops and superb centerpieces, we bring you details about how the smallest rhinestone, to the most stunning centerpiece, there are certain elements of table dÊcor that cannot be overlooked. You’ll also see how event design takes their cues from the fashion world; we pair table color palettes with children’s fashion. We hope to inspire you with fresh new ideas that will set your wedding apart from others and showcase the inner artist in you. But ultimately, when it comes to planning a wedding, love will get you through it all. So let it flow and enjoy the wonderful process.

nspiration

Close your eyes imagine a big, blank canvas. How would you decorate it for your wedding? What theme would you have? What colors would you choose? Get creative. You know you’re just longing to let your visions run loose. Dream big. This is your big day, after all. Do it your way. Make the uniquely stunning vision in your head become reality.

In table design, tiny details can be tricky. But when color and details blend delicately in this lovely sophisticated design, a work of art is born. Tones of pink with accents of yellow and green create a lively, yet somehow still calming, result.

Roses are the ultimate symbol of love. With their modest, elegant design, they have become an everlasting standard of love and romance. Feminine petals come in a colorful array of colors, each hue having its own unique meaning. This is one flower that has endured the test of time and it appears its classic splendor will be cherished for years to come.

Color makes any table so much more inviting. If you’re having a summer wedding you can use bold colors and soften the look by including delicate summer flowers and the perfect details. Our favorite is definitely the cluster of white vessels – stunning detail.

The design concept is based on a fall wedding featuring classic, rustic style with a touch of glamour. The combination of rich leather, gold and navy in the warm atmosphere of Summerour Studio creates an intimate atmosphere balancing feminine detailing with rich masculine elements that will appeal to brides and grooms alike.

Don’t these colors give you a jolt of happiness? These fiesta inspired floral arrangements are absolutely divine, from the bouquet with its loose ribbons to the incredibly unique boutonnieres for the gents! We just can’t help ourselves but obsess over those mini terra cotta pots with bold blooms, paired with confetti and die cut place cards, all designed to perfection.

Clare and Matt Richmond, Virginia

Photography Katelyn James Photography

These two have dated for so long that this day, and that moment, had been highly anticipated for such a long time. Clare got out of the car and walked towards her groom. As she rounded the corner, Matt looked up and saw the most beautiful bride.

Clare and her dad finished the daddy/daughter dance; Mr. Brown asked to share a few words. Now you need to understand that Clare and her younger sister adore their dad. Mr. Brown had the microphone and he thanked everyone for being there and then he started to tell a story. He said that 26 years ago, he was putting Clare to bed and it just happened to be her 1st birthday. After he kissed her goodnight he explained that it suddenly hit him just how fast that first year flew by. He mentioned that when he has moments like this, he tends to write exactly what he’s feeling. And so on Clare’s 1st birthday, he wrote her a poem that he wanted to read to her on her wedding day. 26 years later, Mr. Brown stood in front of his beautiful daughter at her wedding reception and read her the sweetest poem. After everyone wiped away the tears, the food was served and the celebration began.

Laura andRay Conshohocken, PA

Photography MK Photography

Blush, petal, fuchsia, cerise, magenta….. how many shades of pink could there possibly be? Well we pretty much covered them all for Laura and Ray’s wedding at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia. Their wedding was a mixture of soft and romantic…. to deep and rich tones…. all accented with gold, which fits perfectly in line with the rich and regal aura of the Grand Ballroom. The gorgeous floral included a stunning bouquet of cattleya orchids, peonies, cymbidium orchids, and phalaenopsis orchids. The ceremony wreath — at a whopping five feet in diameter — was composed of every color pink we could possibly find! The escort card arrangement had a chandelier-type feel with an abundance of crystals accented with hand-strung blush dendrobium orchids hanging in the center of the table. The centerpieces varied from table to table and each had a coordinating shade of pink as the napkin and cushion. Laura and Ray’s wedding was truly a romantic experience for all of the guests.

Martha andRob Barrington Hill Farm

Photography Justin Demutiis Photography

Martha and Robert's wedding was on a beautiful spring day at the Barrington Hill Farm. They've been together for 9 years, so most of the guests were close family and friends. Martha is a graphic designer by trade, so the beautiful invitations and save the dates were designed by her. Besides having similar professions, Martha and Rob have similar taste‌ I love every decision they made for their wedding. The colors, floral, suits/ties, and of course, Barrington Hill Farm a beautiful backdrop for such a special day.

Julie andShareef Norwalk, Connecticut

Photography MK Photography

With a couple who’s been inseparable since their first meeting, a gorgeous setting, an even more gorgeous lace dress, and all the makings of a classic, romantic wedding. The feeling of timeless classic is something that can be looked at now and in 30 years time it will conjure up just the same emotions as when first viewed. You will immediately get that same feel from their wedding day picture. This is one of those few times in your life when you can get your closest friends and family all in one place having a good time together. There was no need for glitz or bright colors, just a timeless kind of beauty to express their timeless love.

Lindsay andSteve Greenough, Montana

Michele M. Waite Photography

A charmingly beautiful and elegant wedding among the gorgeous and very rustic environment in Montana. The couple chose Montana for their wedding since Lindsay had so many fond memories from her childhood and growing up years since they visited the Big Sky state each year. Because Lindsay’s father passed away when she was in high school, it was extremely important to them to find ways to incorporate him and his memory into their wedding. The very idea of having their wedding in a place he loved so much made her feel like he would be that much closer to her on her wedding day. The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana allowed them to have all wedding festivities on site and for all their guests to stay on property — exactly what they wanted for a fun-filled weekend where guests could mingle, party, and enjoy the gorgeous scenery at their leisure! Their goal was to keep the rustic feel while bringing in a sense of elegance to the day.
