Shawna was the perfect Wonder Woman to Domenic's Superman! We had a blast designing this wedding for the two of them. Shawna did not want her guests to have any idea of what they were walking into. We designed a ceremony perfect for the setting with vintage touches using a color palette of yellows, greys, and navys. The ceremony was set within the trees with the focal point being the vintage mantle and furniture from Maggpie Rentals. We had memory seats reserved for the family members that were in their hearts and present in spirit. There was even a guest that was highly allergic to bug spray so Shawna decided to make her own organic bug spray in case anyone needed some. This is the type of person the bride was- just so caring! At the end of the ceremony, of course, the bride and groom could not leave without taking a selfie with the crowd.
Guests then walked up to the cocktail hour in the barn. There were outdoor games- inflatable bowling, life size jenga, corn holing and fun adult drinks (Dell Lemonade a grooms favorite from Rhode Island).
After cocktails the guests arrived in the reception area where they all immediately expressed, "OMG this is so Shawna and Dom!" Both of them work in education; Domenic is a principle in Las Vegas and Shawna was the Director of Leadership at The Network of Excellent Schools, so to say the Superhero Theme surprised the guests, not at all! For their entrance they busted through navy bricks and everyone went wild. The wedding was kid free, however, in order to include the kids in some way their nieces and nephews did a photo shoot with superhero costumes on for the table numbers. The napkins on the table were in the shape of bows that were closed off by a slap bracelet that read, "Oh snap we said, I do!". There was a charging station for everyones cell phones,a photo booth with tons of super hero props, hashtag vinyls on the bathroom mirrors, and a batman gobo light above the dance floor. As you looked out of the floor to ceiling windows, into the green field, you saw Marquee letters that spelled out LOVE.
Shawna + Dom- you were so much fun to work with... thank you for showing us your inner superman and wonder woman! XOXO
