Dynamite and Pearls Wedding

pink and burlap wedding invites by Pitbulls & Posies

What is your first thought when you hear the word dynamite? We bet it’s not pink lace and pearls, but for Tracy and Taylor (a.k.a T&T) they wanted to soften their nickname while still playing it up at their dynamite and pearls wedding in Southern California. This gorgeous event masterfully mixed hard and soft throughout the day by putting frilly pocket squares in the groomsman’s jackets and by wrapping lace and ribbons around confetti popper escort cards shaped like dynamite. We promise this wedding will blow you away!

This blast of a wedding was designed and coordinated by Beau & Arrow Events. Be sure to check out the full gallery here to see all of the amazing details captured beautifully by Swoon by Katie.

From Beau & Arrow Events:
Right from the get go, Tracy and Taylor made it clear to us that they wanted their day and all of the details to reflect the both of them and their love for each other. The first challenge was incorporating the couple’s nickname T&T (dynamite), while still achieving the soft and romantic aesthetic Tracy envisioned for her big day.

From the Bride:
We did not have a videographer, and looking back I so wish we had a video to capture our special day. The pictures are great, but having a video that captures the actual ceremony, our vows, and the speeches from our family & friends would have been priceless to have. We originally cut it out from the budget due to costs, but looking back, it would have been totally worth it. Get a videographer!

From Beau & Arrow Events:
To take T&T’s day to the next level, Amber from Pitbulls & Posies created popping dynamite escort cards that shot out confetti and displayed the number of the table they were seated at. Guests had a blast popping their dynamite.  

For the centerpieces we stained wooden boxes to look like old dynamite crates and had their nickname calligraphed on the side by Wendy Ware Designer. Modern Bouquet‘s arrangements overflowed from the boxes and were the perfect soft touch.

From Beau & Arrow Events:
The tables were pretty in pink and lace, as well as the backdrop for the sweets tables. Although nothing was sweeter than the couple themselves, Sweet & Saucy did a tasty job making the yummiest and prettiest desserts!

From the Bride:
Also, I wish we had done a choreographed “fun” first dance. We are a really fun, silly couple and I think something of that nature would have been more “us”. Our grand entrance was to the song “TNT Dynamite” which was very appropriate, but I think a fun choreographed first dance would have been more in line with our personalities.

  12. Sometimes the only thing that is insured is the vehicle and
    it is not even on a COMMERCIAL POLICY. Once you have your short list of
    companies you should visit their office and see how they run
    their own office. Specialists have good liability insurance just in case
    anything happens.
