Erin and Josh shared a magical wedding day at Cafe Brauer on June 18, 2011. The venue was truly enchanting as the ceremony took place within the zoo (both Erin and Josh are animal lovers). The couple exchanged their vows right next to the Flamingos, which we recently learned symbolize beauty, balance, and grace. Like flamingos, Erin and Josh also embody those admirable characteristics, as all of us on the MDE team have agreed that the two were a real pleasure to work with.
During the outdoor ceremony, Erin and Josh lit a custom initialed unity candle and displayed a framed Katubah for their friends and family to view. The two flower girls, neices of the Groom, Ava and Gretta, were just precious as they draped the aisle with beautiful petals provided by Meetinghouse Companies.
Erin had a lovely earthy romantic style, which were depicted in her choices to use a beautiful sage green, saffron yellow and terra cotta orange as thematic coloring. The couple personalized all of their wedding accessories with these three colors and a special touch. Their escort cards, monogrammed glass candy jars with delicious chocolates doubled as wedding favors. Also, their cakes, by TipsyCake, were individually sized for each guest to enjoy.
Best wishes Erin & Josh!!!
