We’ve never had a couple quite like this! When we first met with Eric & Mandee, we knew this would be a fun occasion. The dynamic duo had a small ceremony in Savannah, Georgia and then planned to have a “Party With The Newlyweds” the following weekend at The Knoxville Zoo. No detail was overlooked in this interactive celebration incorporating the couple’s homemade wine, mad libs, “do not disturb” door signs, a cigar bar, a custom “McTini” cocktail with recipe card, diamond & airplane streamers, a “Test Flight” station to fly airplanes before the couple’s send off, and a memorial table for their loved ones who could not be there. Eric is an artist himself, so you know he was very involved in the smallest of details, including the creation of an “E&M” wedding logo! Our stress levels were high the week leading up to this event. We wanted to deliver more than this couple ever expected and we made sure the right shade of Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year – Tangerine Tango was felt throughout the room by custom ordering the exact paint color for the cake backdrop, the exact paper color for the streamers, and laboring over the perfect floral palette to match! Bradford Catered Events was also on board to create the perfect menu for these self-labeled “foodies” and Ogle Entertainment & Light Design lit up the tent and stage for the lively band Taboo! It was such a joy to get to work with everyone involved and it was especially great to work with Adrienne Lampe Photography for the first time. We struggled to narrow down her photos to share with you today (we started with 163!) but you can view more from this event (including the amazing menu details) on the couple’s blog, on Bradford Catered Events’ blog, and on our Facebook page!
