Real Wedding: Megan & Austin

by ::

Megan and Austin were married in true military fashion at The Citizen Hotel – with fabulous post-nuptials on the 7th Floor Terrace! Being a member of the United States Air Force, Austin and all his groomsmen wore their military dress for the ceremony and celebration. Sticking true to tradition, Megan & Austin exited their ceremony through a Saber Arch! It was truly a sight to see.

At KWE, we loved helping Megan and Austin design their Rustic Glam wedding! Megan truly loved the mixed metallic look, a popular design, and we were on board to bring this vision to life! The color palette was filled with neutral colors with jute accents and chic pops of metallic! Each detail for this special day was so unique, from the customized “1st Lt. Bartlett and Mrs. Bartlett” Luxecut signs on the couple’s chairs to the luxurious touch of Lily of the Valley in the bridal bouquet (a nod to the bride’s sorority sisters). Megan walked down the aisle in a beautiful Vera Wang layered gown, accessorized with Kate Spade glittery shoes! She truly looked like a princess on her big day. Everything from the venue, the floral arrangements, the traditional military aspect, and more all contributed to a successful and elegant day for this lovely couple! Congratulations Megan and Austin – we were so honored to be apart of your celebration and we wish you so much happiness & love in your marriage!

Real Wedding: Anna & Carly

by :: ,

An Alchemy Exclusive!  Anna and Carly tied the knot at the beautiful Citizen’s Hotel! It was only a matter of time before this couple met – they both taught and coached at the same school! Their love story came into the next chapter when Carly proposed 3 years later, on Christmas! After the distracting gifts came, the ring was enclosed in a fuji film box with a big red bow! What a spectacular Christmas!

In three words, this wedding was elegant, classic, and beautiful. The couple decided to make it a black tie affair, and their color palette of black, white, and gold accented their theme perfectly. Anna shared her special moment of walking down the aisle with both her father and stepfather, and she looked absolutely gorgeous doing it! Floral arrangements stood tall on crystal candelabras, giving the room an extra touch of elegance – definitely one of our favorite touches.

For this wedding, our team performed a “flip” of the room, meaning we transformed the ceremony site into the reception site. In a little under an hour and with an amazing team, the reception was geared up and ready to go! Also, so many little, special touches were added to this wedding. SweetCakes by Rebecca provided gold glitter cake pops, complete with escort cards, which tasted just as fabulous as they looked! When it came time for toasts, the groom had his own special message up his sleeve. He decided to read a letter he had written after the first night he met Anna. The Cliff Notes version includes a message of Carly being so excited to have met such a beautiful girl and how he knew he would marry her one day. It was so romantic and many people were in tears! This wedding was so much fun to be apart of and we were so thankful to have been included! Anna and Carly, we wish you many years of love and happiness in your marriage! Congratulations!
