Stephanie + Ryan

 

“I fell in LOVE with Stephanie and Ryan (and Michelle and Tom Brown, Stephanie’s parents) from word “GO”, says Maya Boettcher.” They wanted a wedding that was classic with a bit of a modern edge, and Maya couldn’t wait to deliver!

One of the amazing things about Stephanie and Ryan is not only do they have incredible taste, they fully trusted in Maya and other vendors to make their day special, which makes vendors jobs that much easier.

It all started with wedding invitations that were custom letter pressed with gold foil on matte grey extra heavy 220lb cotton stock. Creating an upscale, elegant, yet modern take on invitations.

Guests were invited into the ceremony space and greeted with a glass of champagne. A square shaped ceremony arch filled with lush greens, hundreds of stems of white orchids and roses was the show stopper in the clean industrial ceremony space. Acrylic signage and clean lines gave the event a modern edge but the lush floral kept it classic.

Stephanie’s simple understated gown was a knockout that completed the modern elegant vibe next to Ryan’s classic tux. She carried garden roses and orchids in an asymmetric shape down the aisle, while her bridesmaids simple orchids stems.

Together, after saying their “I do’s” Ryan and Stephanie made their getaway from the ceremony in a Jaguar convertible, which was amazing to say the least. Not to mention, it made for killer photographs.

The reception was in the classic renovated Tea Room, where the special ceremony arch made its way and became a backdrop for photos. Raw gray linens, white hemstitched napkins atop a gold rimmed charger, gold flatware, acrylic table numbers and various sized asymmetrical centerpieces gave the look of modern city elegance in a historic venue.

The wedding cake was covered in edible gold leaf and dripped in white orchids, making it almost too pretty to eat.

The 12 piece band kept the dance floor packed, before ending the night with late night snacks and an espresso bar, which was much needed after a long night of dancing.
