Wedding Wednesday- PICTURES & Details @Mariners Church

Sam and Jennie's Wedding last Saturday was so beautiful. The Mariner's Church is such a gorgeous place intergrading a natural rustic feel in a contemporary space. My first impression walking into the chapel was that it had a very cozy and intimate feel. I really like how big everything feels in the pictures compared to being in the space.

I was there Saturday to make sure all the decoration and reception details were taken care of. It was so much fun being able to decorate the whole wedding and reception. I had help of course, and along with the brides clear vision, I was able to utilize my "tool box" to take care of behind the scenes. Jennie was a wonderful bride to work for and she had everything super organized for her big day. I am so happy that I could help work the finishing touches to make her dream wedding! The pictures below are of the isle decorations/ pew bows that Jennie created for the ceremony. Also the peacock theme as you can see continued throughout. I tulle wrapped the isles and hung the peacock decorations and laid out a scalloped flower petal isle runner down the center isle to highlight the entrance.

One awesome thing Jennie decided to highlight at the reception was a cake buffet with nine different flavors of cakes. She had a friend in the mountains make cake displays for her in two different heights so the cakes could be staggered on the table. You can find some similar cake stands on Etsy Here. I wanted to do a treasury but they have to include 16 different items... But it seems like a keyword of "rustic" gets you these items.

I looked all over Etsy to see if there was a similar bird cake topper, and found nothing quite as realistic type of bird. Jennie should really think about sourcing out some of theses really amazing items she had for her wedding in her Etsy shop.

I worked the cake table during the reception and everyone seemed to flock to the strawberry filling chocolate cake.  They all looked so fantastically tasty but I was able to hold out until we got to Chick-fil-a! 

One of my favorite parts of going down to the OC is indulging on my favorite thing that reminds me of home.  I still can't believe our high school's athletic events sold chicken sandwiches... Yummy!  I love that I am wearing my fancy dress at this fast food joint in this picture-lol

I am off working on getting the labels off these blue and green glass bottles that we are collecting for a wedding table display. Next week there will be more details on how to elevate bottles to a classic and romantic take on simple elegance.

Best wishes for a creative and positive week to all!


  1. KC, it's a real shame I'm never getting married because you would most definitely be at the top of my list of decorators.

  2. Well, Thanks! Let me know if you ever want to do a super fun party- just because ;)

  3. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
