Melissa & Chad
Q & A with the Bride
What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
We had a clear vision for our day – romantic elegance, and I knew that I wanted very soft neutral colors. DeLille Cellars in Redmond, Washington was perfect for our vision and it was just the right size for our small guest count of 58.
Which details from your wedding were your favorites?
Driftwood Arbor – In March, Chad and I drove out to Oak Harbor, WA and we spent the day collecting driftwood on the beach. We constructed our wedding arbor out of the driftwood that we collected and we had our florist decorate it with flowers on our wedding day. As an added personal touch, we carved our initials and our wedding date in a heart onto our arbor.
Moss Letters – I love the look of Moss Letters and so I created my own for our wedding day and we hung them on the barn on our wedding day.
Bride and groom signs – I created signs for the back of our chairs that said Bride and Groom.
Welcome boxes for our out of town guests – We have quite a few guests coming in from out of town. I wanted to do something for them to welcome them when they arrived so I created welcome boxes and arranged to have them placed in each guests hotel room before they arrived. In each welcome box there was a map and some information of the city, along with some goodies and a mini first aid kit just in case.
Chalkboard Sign – I bought a frame from the craft store and spray painted it ivory and then glued in a chalkboard I found at the hardware store. I then created a sign outlining the day’s events for our guests. It also acted as a directional sign, so that our guests could find their way around.
