Rager-Pappel Wedding: July 30, 2011

Since Matt from Matt Emrich Photography provided us with all of these beautiful pictures from the Rager-Pappel wedding I decided to make it its own post! Chelsea and Jim are such a fun couple and Matt did an amazing job of capturing their personalities and spirit on their wedding day!

Chelsea worked her entire wedding around the polka dot theme she fell in love with. We used black/white polka dot ribbon for the stem wrap for all of the bouquets as well as the corsages & mini gerb boutonnieres.  Her invitations featured hot pink gerbera daisies and we carried those throughout the entire wedding decoration.

The bridal bouquet was made of white Polar Star roses, Stargazer Lilies, and 3 shades of gerbera daisies. Chelsea wanted it “huge”…so we made it big. The bridesmaids carried bouquets made of different shades of pink gerbera daisies.

Here is Jim with his pink mini gerb boutonniere. I added black beaded wire to tie in with the polka dot theme. (The guys even wore hot pink shoe laces and the bridesmaids had polka dot shoe laces!!) Even the 2 dogs had flower collars!

Originally Chelsea planned on DIY reception centerpieces but the wind proved to be a bit of a challenge so I added the 3 tones of pink gerbera daisies to the clear rectangular vases with clear stones. These were put on mirrored tiles which enlarges the look of the centerpiece. The head table also held tiered vases with pink gerbs.

Another last minute addition was a few stems of flowers on the gazebo where the ceremony took place. It added a bit of color to the all-white gazebo.

We placed tall glass cylinders in the reception with pink and white arrangements that “floated” on top.
