It was a perfect summertime wedding for Katherine and Barron. Festivities began at the Omni la Mansion, where the family and the wedding party gathered to get ready for the big day. Kirsten Wilhelm Photography captured the pure excitement of the day with the historic Omni de la Mansion as the backdrop. The bride and groom were married at their church, and afterwards a grand party at The Witte Museum was led by The Grooves Band. It was a midsummer’s night dream wedding.

Once you have set your date and established a guest list, you may consider sending save the date cards. Save the date cards are an excellent way to formally announcing your engagement, while politely allowing your friends and family to mark their calendars. They are also especially helpful if you are planning a destination wedding, or if your nuptials are being held over a holiday.
Like many aspects of wedding planning, save the date cards also require specific etiquette protocol:
Save the date cards may be mailed up to one year, or more, in advance of your wedding, however they do not replace a formal invitation, and should mention that a wedding invitation will follow.
Every guest who receives a save the date card should also receive a formal invitation. For instance, you must not invite a guest and later choose to not invite them. So, when sending save the dates, one must be certain of their guest list.
Save the date cards should be simple. All that is required are your names, wedding date, and the city.
Save the date cards come in many forms. They may coordinate with your formal invitations; there are also many fun designs that show your personality. In our modern era, save the dates can even be emailed with links attached to a couple’s wedding website.

The backdrop at the Marquardt Ranch provided the fairytale, whimsical scenery that Amanda had always envisioned for her big day.

What bride doesn’t want romantic tables at her wedding? Well, nothing says romance better than lace. Place long lace table cloths over your reception tables, while allowing the hem to drape the floor or ground, for an unforgettable vintage look.
