S&K Wedding Pt. I

Yay, Shinie and Kevin are married!

Not only did I get to celebrate alongside the two of them as a bridesmaid, I also had the opportunity to help design the wedding (and pick reception music - so fun!). Though I've helped at a lot of other weddings, this is the first time I have been involved in all of the design planning, decision-making, and execution.

A couple of thoughts after the jump:

  • Nothing came as a surprise - this either means I did a pretty good job at thinking things through, or it means I'm not easily fazed... or maybe it means both. =)
  • I felt like I took on a second full-time job and have no regrets about it. I was afraid that by the time the wedding came around, I would end up hating event design. On the contrary, I felt exhilarated, happy, and pleased.
  • I am glad I decided to get everything done a week in advance. I was able to rest and relax the week leading up to the wedding.
  • I have never seen a groom so involved in wedding planning and designing as I saw Kevin was. Shinie was 'stuck' in Michigan in her first year of residency, so Kevin and I were left to see things through. As much as he insisted that he wasn't very creative, I witnessed Kevin making a lot of stuff - he needs to give himself A LOT more credit.
  • I need to hire people to help cut stuff. I have never cut so much stuff in such a short period of time.

1. Candy/Cookie Table - Kathy and I teamed up once again to give Shinie a beautiful candy and cookie bar. We met up a couple weeks before the wedding to decide on a setup and to figure out what needed to be done. Our awesome friend Kim helped setup the table the day of. This is definitely one of my favorite tables that I have worked on.

2. Candy Bar Wrappers - I designed a few candy bar wrappers for our milk chocolate bars.

3. Candy Jar Favors - Jars were provided by Kevin and Shinie so guests could pack up some candy for the road. The labels were designed using Powerpoint (I'm still not very Photoshop/Illustrator savvy) and printed on white sticky sheets.

4. Escort Cards - We decided to keep things simple. Name on front, table number on back. The color of the card indicated each guests' dish: cream was sea bass, brown was beef, pink was vegetarian, striped was kid's.

5. Flip Cam Pouch - Kevin wanted to have a video booth where guests could leave short messages for him and Shinie. He planned to borrow my Flip Cam, which was a gift from my company. I didn't really want to make a pouch for it but ended up making one at the last minute. My company logo is printed on the front of the camera, and I felt it would have been ugly in a wedding setting.

There are a few more things that I need to find photos of: wedding programs, menus, and table numbers. I am hoping the professional photographers took photos of them.
