Brittany+Hachem had a gorgeous beach wedding in September, and I’m so glad we could be a part of their special day! The bride and groom are both designers with a clean and modern style, and their wedding definitely reflected that. The reception took place on the beach with natural wood chairs and a bamboo chuppah adorned with white paper lanterns. The reception was held at the Veranda at the Whitcomb overlooking Lake Michigan, where tables were covered in gray linens, accented by a trio of white vases of hydrangea, snapdragons and a small potted succulents. White paper lanterns were strung across the dance floor for some beautiful ambient lighting.

One of my favorite things about this wedding, were all of the small details that were spread throughout the wedding. Each table was named after a dance along with a graphic of the dance steps, escort cards were arranged in white antique frames, a candy buffet was arranged with all homemade baked good, a beautiful wooden book was screen printed with the couples monogram to use as a guest book, and above all—every item was personalized with the couples very unique monogram which was the silhouette of a dancing boy and girl (you can see it in the framed bar menu and the guest book cover, both pictured above!)
