Chris and Delaine’s Old World Wedding

49140969502_f8b14f7618_oDelaine and Chris were absolutely not looking for love when they met in a local bar back in 2016, but love certainly found them. Both being single parents, Chris of 3 kids and Delaine of 4, they knew they had to be smart and take things slow. They wanted to make sure they were serious about each other before introducing their children. It has now been over two years since they joined families, and they haven’t looked back.

The couple said their “I dos” in front of a lavish, floral moongate that took our team hours to bring to life – BUT SO WORTH IT! They had asked us to create a stunning, old-world ceremony in the Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse, so we lined the aisle with clusters of floating candles in various shades of plum and lilac colored water, making for a gorgeous candle-lit glow of color! We sat them on wood boxes with floral and greenery tucked in and around them.

They said they wanted their wedding to be an “epic” affair. And our team delivered!

Guests were treated to a cocktail hour game of “Name That Movie” as soundtrack music was played from some of their favorite films and TV series such as Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones and Gladiator. The guests with the most right answers got to choose from a selection wine as their prize.  

 

For their decor we brought in regal candelabras, aged metals, and beautiful fresh flowers. A decadent feast table of fruits and cheeses were laid out for guests to enjoy before the main dinner. For their cake table we used a large antique box instead of a traditional cake stand and displayed silk gathered fabric, rustic fruits, antique silver goblets, dripping candelabras and cupcakes.

Their head table was graced by our wood tabletop arch and covered in lush floral and greenery plus a romantic touch we added – gold delicate sconces.

Everyone danced and ate like kings surrounded by candlelight within the magnificent walls of the Old Courthouse.
