The Sanctuary Wedding – Annabelle & Chris
One of the most unique aspects of the day was Chris and Annabelle had a private dinner during cocktail hour. They dined at a table decorated like a sweetheart table with flowers and champagne with a low lit ambience - an amazing idea! They were able to enjoy one another just the two of them and reminisce on the day and prepare for the night ahead just the two of them! They actually got to eat their dinner and then they were able to go and mingle with everyone that came to see and celebrate their day!
Annabelle and Chris chose to have their reception at her brother in law's backyard home because they wanted something more intimate and outside. Their wedding colours were gold and navy blue, the colours were perfect for an autumn wedding and they loved how they contrasted. Annabelle wanted the florals to stand out with red because she loves red! The florals had a mixture of colours, white, red, blush and champagne so everything meshed and flowed well together. Some of the details were the writing on the mirrors and signs - inspired by images seen on Instagram. Also, the party favours were done by Ruze Cakehouse and since they married on Veterans Day, they decided on American Flags on Arizona State sugar cookies.
Chris and Annabelle love to go to music festivals so they tried to put that vibe out with music and glow sticks as part of their evening reception. The light sticks that were a huge hit and even had their names and date of their wedding date for everyone to take home! Such a cool party favour for their guests! Everyone got really into it and they literally danced until the end of the night.
