Katie and James celebrate their Elms Mansion Reception

December 23, 2014

Weddings

 

 

 

We asked Katie what inspired her Wedding Day and Elms Mansion Reception:

For our reception, I wanted a subtle Old Hollywood feel with plenty of sparkle.  I thought that the speak easy vibe would pair nicely with all those men in their Navy dress whites.  In addition to gold accents throughout the decor, we also have the sparkle of the twinkle lights outside at the Elms Mansion.  It completes the feeling of being under the stars at a warm and elegant outdoor soiree.  

What inspired your cake and your Groom’s cake? 

Our wedding day includes some military traditions to pay tribute to our families’ and friends’ past and present service.    James was a Navy EOD Platoon Commander and served two tours in Iraq, so I wanted to honor him and his buddies as much as possible.   We are lucky enough to have handsome men in uniform escorting our guests down the aisle and a sword arch after the ceremony.  We will be reading the EOD prayer during the ceremony, and I planned a special surprise groom’s cake made to look like the coin from the mobile unit for his second tour in Iraq.
