GREY ‘N’ YELLOW, GREY ‘N’ YELLOW… WEDDING :) | By Antonia Christianson Events

You– I mean y–you know I have to do this, right?  You know I have to do this…

“Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Grey and yellow, Grey and yellow
Grey and yellow, Grey and yellow
Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Grey and yellow, Grey and yellow
Grey and yellow, Grey and yellow”

Here’s what I can’t believe; I can’t believe I didn’t do that sooner in an earlier grey and yellow wedding!  That’s what I can’t believe.  You probably can’t believe that all of the above is actually something you just read on a wedding blog.  So here, let me explain.

I just spent daaaaays holed up nice and tight inside of my mindspace in order to crap out that Guinness Book of World Records-length Bachelor Ep 4 recap; seriously it’s something I spent an embarrassing-to-my-family amount of time doing.  So aside from the more common side effects, such as fatigue, mindlessness and regret, it, too, seems that an unusual and certainly potent sense of masochism has befallen me.  What does this mean?  It means I felt the need to delicately stuff this beautiful wedding into and around your faces on this lovely Friday evening and see whacha think.  I dunno… I just — for some reason I feel like speeding up the amount of time it takes between right now and the time when I’m going to need carpal tunnel surgery.  Why not right?  YOU WANNA SEE PRETTY STUFF – I’M HERE TO DO IT.  F**k my knuckles!  Is what I say.  And then you say: “it’s not about your knuckles with carpal tunnel.”  And then I reach down into your pants, grab the seam of your underwear and scream, “are you questioning me?” but in a very I’m-not-F-Wording-around-with-you, and I’m wearing my serious face as I do it.  And then you stop talking and you never, ever question me ever again.

Hahahahaha, that’s if I was Ben from The Bachelor, that’s how I’d do it.  But I’m not Ben, I’m Alison!  And Alison shakes faces.


I don’t really know what just happened up there.  Can we just sort of– I’m going to request that we leave that back there, and that we all sign a blood pact never to bring it up again.  New beginnings.  I think I’ll also take this opportunity to promise you that I’m not smoking whatever Demi Moore was smoking when her helpers called the rudest 911 operators ever in the history of the world regarding her apparent highly unsuccessful attempt at getting high.  Really, I promise, cross my heart.  I was born this way.  As Lady Gaga sa–Actually, hey……………

wanna just get to the pictures?  Yeah let’s just get to the pictures.

Thank you, Antonia Christianson Events, for bringing to us such lovely inspiration to take us into the weekend!

Here’s the rundown from Antonia, the mad design skillz behind Antonia Christianson Events:

Rachel and Nick are a great example that a little hard work, a clear vision and a budget conscious mind makes for a fabulous wedding. Nick and Rachel are attorneys that reside in Florida but were raised in Ohio and Virginia respectively. Throughout the planning process this great couple worked hard to make sure that their event was memorable, family oriented and a definite great time. Rachel envisioned a classy outdoor southern bbq as her wedding reception theme; she wanted her wedding to encompass her home town a bit different than the grooms family was used to in Ohio. They picked the Mariners Museum in Newport News, Virginia as the backdrop to their reception and a relaxed crisp white, summer yellow and gray color scheme to bring her vibe to light.

The menu, entertainment and small details were the icing on the cake. They offered fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and other hometown favorites to their guests along for dinner. The pops of yellow linens, barber stripe straws and a lemonade stand were last minute additions that we feel truly brought this event together. There were details that screamed Rachel and Nick throughout the reception including law books as centerpieces, a band made up of childhood friends and plenty of barefoot dancing under the stars.

It isn’t every day that you see clients laughing as much as these two do, but it was an honor to watch their joy as they became husband and wife. It was a definite favorite for our team and look forward to watching as their family grows.

Love it, Antonia.  Oh, I did wanna say one more thing….

Wheeeeeeee!  :)

Pretty, yes?  Ok SO, tell me, are you a fan of yellow and grey?  What’s YOUR top color scheme/what are you planning to run with for your wedding, if you’re planning?

Also, what do you think of that lovely table decor?  I adore cute and simple. :)

xoxo!  - Alison

    Oh, darling. I’m so sad to see what the Bach recaps are doing to you. I know I’m the last person you’d expect this from, but I care more for you than I do for the recaps, and if you need to stop before Honey and Bambs have to take up “North” for a “rest cure”, well then I think should stop.

    And look at weddings like THIS. Those shoes are like the opposite of Bachelor recaps, in that they’re happy.

    I absolutely adore gray and yellow weddings and I wish they were all that way!! No, I take that back. That would be boring. However, I’ll take as many as I can get. Such a beautiful combo.

    Hi- I’m in a wedding in September and would love to wear these shoes as a bridesmaid. Would you be willing to sell them to me? If so, what size are you?
