Let me just start out by saying that Allison is one of my favorite brides ever!! For starters, we seem to be the same person. She reached out to me 3 days after getting engaged, so she’s a planner (like me). The style of her wedding is exactly how I would want my wedding to be if I had a do-over, she listens to hip-hop and is obsessed with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Needless to say, our phone consultations always seemed to get a little off topic and last longer than an hour.
Anyways, working with her and Jacob was a blast and I can’t wait to tell you about the entire process!
Jacob and Allison met through mutual friends while attending NYU. They hung out with big groups a lot, but never really got together because they were both with other people. Well, at a mutual friends graduation party they found out they were both single, and were finally able to start dating. They never stopped, and Jacob moved back to Allison’s hometown in Missouri after their third anniversary. With frequent visits to New York, and knowing how much it meant to their relationship, Jacob planned an epic proposal back at the same house they met so many years ago. (Keep in mind, new college students lived there, that he didn’t know, and he had to get in touch with them). Allison was very reluctant to go back to the house and talk to strangers, but to her surprise when she walked in, their core group of friends + immediate family were standing in the living room. She turned to look at Jacob and started crying as he was down on one knee asking her to spend the rest of their lives together.
Allison found us on Pinterest and was interested in ordering one of our already made dusty blue designs. After talking with her on our initial phone consultation, I talked her into letting me design her something completely new. (If you’ve been following along long enough, you know I like to get my hands dirty and create way more than tweak a little bit of a design I’ve already done – it’s just more fun).
She has told me she was incorporating about 4 different shades of blue. But didn’t want it to be over the top blue, she never imagined her wedding colors would be blue, blue and well, more blue. But there we were, creating something for her very blue wedding. Everything turned out perfectly! We kept the same style for the RSVPs + the invitations and had the focus be on the floral design. I love the way they turned out. What about you? Would you do multiple shades of one color for your wedding palette?
