There is nothing that says “classic” like a little navy and white, and those were the beautiful colors chosen by bride Saffold for her May 23 wedding to Brian. As a catering and event manager for one of the most well-known catering companies in the South, I knew this bride would have every detail covered, but she was effortlessly relaxed and a true joy to work with!
The white hydrangea bouquets she chose were oh-so-Southern, and provided an elegant accent to the bridesmaids’ navy dresses. The navy and white straws took the color combo all the way to the bar, where they were placed in the happy couple’s signature drink, the “yellow hammer.” Also at the bar, Sweetwater 420 beer was offered to guests as a personal touch and nod to the special place where Saffold and Brian met – the Sweetwater 420 Festival in Atlanta. In fact, it’s even where Brian proposed…while on the Ferris wheel. How sweet is that?
After taking top-secret dance lessons, the bride and groom surprised their parents with a choreographed first dance to Van Morrison’s “Sweet Thing,” which was a big hit. Departing on a golf cart, the bride and groom were showered with bubbles and well wishes as they left to begin their new life as husband and wife.
