They’re called Figgie Shoes and we love them. These custom, hand-painted shoes are the artwork of Deborah Thomson, who started Figgie Shoes almost by accident when she painted some shoes for friends! Each pair is completely customized to tell the couple’s personal love story.
We love this form of wearable art and think our Marquee brides would also adore these one-of-a-kind fashion statements! Learn more at the Figgie Shoes website.
Browsing Pinterest on Halloween turned up some rather, um, interesting results… Most of the wedding-related items were a little over the top, but then we came across this beautiful color palette and Halloween wedding inspiration board. Originally designed by One Fab Day, an online wedding magazine based in Ireland, this mood board was even titled perfectly: “Spookishly Chic”. We love the black, grey and peach palette, as well as the elements of fun like Spooky Sweets!
Our new blog series featuring our preferred vendors continues with Azalea Floral Design! As she mentions below, Christine and her team of designers take floral design to a new artistic level by creating “works of living art”. The pictures below speak for themselves. We always look forward to seeing her latest creations for our Marquee weddings and events!
Azalea Floral Design uses the freshest and most beautiful seasonal flowers and foliages to create works of living art. We often incorporate fruits, vegetables, grasses, unique flowers and other unconventional materials to create designs that evoke nature. In late summer and fall we often use locally grown, farm-fresh flowers, berries and branches. Each arrangement’s design is individually conceived to reflect our client’s personality and tastes while also taking into account the aesthetics of its setting. We love getting to know our clients and creating a beautiful experience for them and their guests through our work.
Wedding dishes, a spin on the classic ring bearer pillow, can be and integral part of your wedding ceremony and then a keepsake for years to come. As they become more popular we are seeing not only your standard “To Have and to Hold” style dishes, but also custom dishes with your own phrase or wedding date. Below are some favorites we found on Etsy!
We are lucky to work with phenomenal vendors here at Marquee Events all the time. We have decided to highlight each them with a new series on our blog, which is kicking off with Eric Foley Photography! To anyone who follows our blog, you’re sure to have heard of them. They’ve shot countless times here and the results are always beautiful. So, get to know Eric and his team a little better:
Eric Foley Photography is a team of photographers inspired by love, emotion, family and down right having fun! The motivation to be successful in our photography business comes from my beautiful wife Erin, our kids Keegan and Aislinn, two crazy Hungarian Vizslas and our indoor cat who went rogue to follow his dreams of outdoor freedom, August West. Family values are at the core of what we do and why we do it. Our goal photographing weddings is to create timeless images that become instant family heirlooms for our brides and grooms. We consider our style a fusion of Art, Fashion, Photojournalism and timeless romance. We love photographing people who appreciate photography and share these same values with us.
Roller Derby Girl Jennifer and her husband Matt brought great style and attention to detail to their Marquee wedding. The bold colors, peacock feather accents and vintage details made this evening stand out. Bride Jennifer, with a little help from Etsy and her computer, made all of the printed materials which added to the vintage flair. (We especially loved the Mad Libs!) She made the favors, too — Onyx Moonshine. It was a fun, energetic celebration here at Marquee Events!
With today’s digital photography we no longer have to decide ahead of time between color or black & white film. Now we can have it all. So, with the endless possibilities, what’s your favorite style for wedding photos — the ever-classic Black & White or the true representation of color? We love both photos by April Smith Photography below and honestly can’t choose between them!
