Unique Wedding Ideas: KG Designs Puts the Cake on a Swing!

When Andy Hopper of KG Designs met with bride-to-be Christina several months ago, he immediately knew that her imagination and personality were going to be lots of fun thoughout the planning process.  Soon after their initial bridal consultation commenced, Christina said she wanted a feel of “rich elegance” but it was important that her big day be “very unique.”  Then Christina asked for something that’s never been requested of our team before… She told Andy that she’d love to have her wedding cake on a swing… YES, a swing! First focusing on Christina’s “rich elegance” request, Andy suggested lots of deep purples, bright raspberry and other shades of violet to create a rich monochromatic palette. Making sure the look was both unique and romantic, the team used three gorgeous varieties of orchids (Dendrobuim, Cymbidiums and Vanda) as well as Garden Roses, Hypercium Berry, Hydrangea, and Tulips throughout the elegant wedding design. The vibrant purple florals paired with rich cream and taupe linens meshed perfectly with Design Productions romantic purple lighting effects and made this wedding’s overall look truly spectacular. But the real WOW factor was introduced with Christina’s request that her cake be up on a swing. While it proved to be quite challenging to create, it was the key component and true “pièce de résistance” in the elegant décor. Upon entering the reception area, guests – and even the KG Designs team themselves – were amazed by this incredibly gorgeous swing. Definitely one of the most beautiful weddings KG Designs has created in 2012, we are so thankful for the amazing Anita Kanellis of AK Brides for introducing us to Christina. If you’ve got big dreams for a magical wedding, you can’t go wrong by asking Anita for her assistance. We’re also extremely appreciative of the super-talented Frank Carnaggio for providing us with these stunning photographs. You’re truly one of the very best, Frank! Other wedding pros who made Christina and her groom Phillip’s big day so very perfect in every way were: Ross Bridge Weddings, Birmingham Bridal Carriages, Lighting by Design Productions, Videography by Main Street Productions, Joyce’s Formals Salon, and of course, Wedding Cakes by Jan O’Donnell.

Unique Weding Ideas: “Rustic Chic” Design Utilizes Lots of Gorgeous Raw Cotton

Unique Weding Ideas: “Rustic Chic” Design Utilizes Lots of Gorgeous Raw Cotton

When wedding planner Kerri Kelley of Kerri Kelley Weddings introduced the KG Designs team to the gorgeous Southern Belle, Katie, we immediately knew her wedding was gonna be something special.  Katie explained that she and her groom, Eric, wanted their B&A Warehouse wedding to have a specific “Rustic Chic” look and feel and she definitely wanted to integrate lots of raw cotton into her florals.  Her bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, centerpieces, you name it… Beleive it or not, her mom actually hand-picked all the cotton used in the design at a friend’s farm in New Market, AL.  From there, Andy Hopper and his team of floral artisans at KG Designs took over over in creating a beautiful Southern fairytale wedding. But the gorgeous wedding design didn’t stop at just raw cotton.  Other flowers utilized in the bouquets and decor were: stunning black and white anemones as well as bright yellow crespedia. Another big element to Katie’s dream design was romantic candlelight. She wanted the event to “feel like a candlelit barn party in the heart of the city.” To complete the “Rustic Chic” barn party look, the KG Designs team hung several large wrought iron chandeliers and utilized mason jars – both suspended from above and placed on table tops – along with numerous black candelabras and hundreds of romantic white candles all across the vast warehouse space. It truly was a gorgeous event – captured fabulously by our super-talented friends at Little Acorn Photography. We truly can’t thank them enough for the incredible images you see here. To see even more gorgeous “Rustic Chic” images from Katie and Eric’s big day, please visit our facebook gallery HERE.    ...
