A Whimsical Yellow Wedding in California
Christie and Greg
While out with mutual friends in Los Gatos, California, Christie Nolet and Greg Henderson met and struck up a conversation. One year later, at the same bar, with the same friends, they decided to take their friendship to the next level, and after two years of dating, on July 21, 2012, they tied the knot in front of 200 loved ones.
Christie’s bunch was put together by Shotgun Floral Studio and bound together with sparkly ribbon. The wild arrangement included peach and yellow garden roses, dahlias, scabiosa, and king protea.
Small clusters of gomphrena and spray roses adorned the menswear.
The Ceremony Decor
Ceremony proceedings were outlined on fans, which also kept attendees cool during the summer afternoon. A thank-you note to all of their guests was written on the backs.
After walking down the aisle with her father to “I Can’t Wait” by Runner Runner, Greg’s uncle led them through their hand-written vows. They then placed these promises in a locked box to be opened and reread on every anniversary.
A large chart helped guests easily find their table assignments.
Drink offerings were listed and displayed in a wooden frame that had been dipped in white paint.
The frames holding the table numbers received a simple paint treatment.
Bright fringe and garlands were draped along the outside of the tables to add colorful flair.
The Table Settings
Menu cards, slipped into folded napkins made from mix-and-match fabrics, were topped with peaches picked at a local farm.
“When I Said I Do” by Clint Black had been Christie’s dream wedding song ever since junior high. It played as the newlyweds hit the dance floor.
Greg’s second cousins watched the bride and groom share the special moment.
The refreshing summer fruit that garnished each plate also served as favors. Buckets of them were set out next to a sign that read, “You’re a peach, take one home!”
