Sparkle in the Rain: Becky & Brent’s silver and gray Iowa City Wedding

I pay attention to the weather forecast on the weekends.  Just so I can hope for a beautiful day for the couples I design for.  The day Becky picked up all her wedding day items, it was a gorgeous fall day.  But Mother Nature had other plans and brought rain on their big day.

But if it rains, dance in the rain.

And this couple did just that.

Becky knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding invitations.  And as we sat and talked about the beautiful ideas she had, I could tell she was on a mission.  A mission for a wedding day her father promised her.  Her father passed away only a few months before this time.  She told me that he promised her that she would have an amazing wedding day.  He was going to make sure of it.

Dance in the rain.

And as we put the pocket wedding invitations together, complete with a silver glitter belly band and silver glitter envelope liners, I knew we were on the right path.  And when a bride knows the current wedding trends I’ve been drooling over on Instagram, it’s even better.  Becky allowed me to create custom hexagonal marble tile place cards, with each guests name and meal choice.  Top it off with marble tile table numbers, which were stunning on each table.

And of course the other wedding day items such as programs, seating chart, custom signs, white print acrylic guest book sign…I can’t even begin to imagine her guests’ reactions when they walked into the reception. I mean, I think Becky and Brent were blown away as well.

Her dad’s promise: kept.  The wedding was a day of their dreams and even though the rain maybe could have stayed away, they danced. And that’s the beginning of a beautiful life together.

Thanks to Lisa Lytton Photography for the wonderful photos and to Diamond Label Films for a wedding video they won’t soon forget.

Congrats you guys.  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
