Allison’s chic & unique wedding

Another friend got married! Allison & Tyler tied the knot at the Veridian in downtown Springfield on Saturday, June 22.

The details…

Venue: Veridian Events, for both ceremony & reception

Dress: Norman’s Bridal, downtown Springfield (chocolate brown taffeta bridesmaids dresses were from Norman’s, too! — loved them)

Cake: Celebrations by Sonja (traditional white cake with fresh strawberry filling)

DJ: Traveling Tunes (I think)

Photographer: Climer (which is the same photographer I had, love Amanda & Lance)

Catering: Simply Delicious (my favorite! Allison and Tyler had originally booked Whisler’s burgers, but Whisler’s backed out just 3 weeks before the wedding, eek! We feasted on Sliders, potato salad, pasta salad, and barbeque sundaes.)

Drinks: guests chose between pink lemonade or root bear in bottles, raspberry tea, or the cash bar. The signature cocktail was the blushing bride: vodka, peach schnapps, coconut rum, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, orange juice. I had a couple of those and a “couple” glasses of white zin.

Fun stuff: A candy bar with M&Ms, Twizzlers, Gummy Bears, Jelly Beans, Pixi Sticks, Bubble Gum, etc. The kids hit the bar HARD. There was not a single bear left.

Wedding Coordinator: Megan (from the Veridian) and Whitney. Whitney rocked! Since the ceremony and reception were both upstairs, Whitney and the “transition team” had to transform the space while the guests were having cocktail hour downstairs and the wedding party took photos.

Rehearsal dinner: Nonna’s Italian Restaurant, conveniently located across the street. The greek pasta is to-die-for.

 

It was a blast! Chelsea and I took photos throughout the rehearsal and decorating/getting ready on Saturday. We’re planning to make a photo book on Shutterfly to surprise Allison, but Chelsea has the files. So, when I have those, I’ll post a few more pics!
