Mandy + Drew

We have had so many incredible weddings this season, that I simply can't pick a favorite.  This one is definitely one of my top three.  Clients this year have given us so much freedom, and we have had more fun than ever coming up with new ideas.  When Drew and Mandy sat down with me to brainstorm, I knew just what to propose, but I was not sure if they would go for it.  They met in the courthouse, working on criminal cases.  Drew works for the prosecution and Mandy for the defense.  I thought the combo was so great and suggested a clue-themed reception.  They jumped at the idea (thank goodness for people who can think outside the box).  This is one of the favorites of everyone here at Salt Harbor!  The couple was just adorable and their guests had a blast with the theme! 

Brent and Amanda of Millie Holloman Photographytook the photographs.  They are such an amazing husband/wife team, and their different perspectives make their collective images to unique! 

How amazing is the striped tie?!   

   

 

  

  

 

 Ribbon wands were definately huge this season.

  

  

  One crazy bridal party-- so much fun!

    

  Escort cards were evidence tags.  We painted an old door yellow and hung the evidence tags from nails. 

   

  Guests were invited to share their "clues to a good marriage!" 

    

 

 

 

We styled each table according to the Clue room.  There were more tables than actual board game rooms, so we had to add a few. The team at MHP put together these great collages! 

 

The Billiard Room and Carriage House...

 The Den and Library...

   

The Hall and the Conservatory...

The Ballroom and the Atrium...

   

 

 The Kitchen...  

 

 

 

The Parlor and the Dressing Room...

  

 

 The Wine Cellar...  

  

 

 The Pantry and the Dining Room...

 

The Observatory and the Study...   

 

 

I wanted to work these little pencils in somewhere, so on the back of each menu, we printed a clue word search.   

 

 

 

  Mandy and Drew love ice cream and when I asked them their favorite ice cream place, they said Cournel Custards!  We were so excited that it went to well with our Clue idea!  

 

  

 

We styled the photobooth too, creating a mini Clue set.  Guest had so much fun acting out their own murder mysteries.  And the ring bearer was just precious!

  

     

 

 A Pedicab departure! 

  

  Thanks so much Mandy and Drew for embracing the Clue idea and trusting us so much!
