Deep purples and rich golds set an elegant color palette for this beautiful wedding held at the gorgeous Gassaway Mansion. Darling DIY projects abound and with so many cute details there is sure to be something that will brighten up anyone’s day.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at a 1920’s era mansion, The Gassaway Mansion, with the feel like you were walking back in time. Filled with the exuberance and prosperity of the roaring 20’s, The Gassaway Mansion is the perfect facility for your wedding and reception. A grand mahogany staircase, Waterford Crystal chandeliers, Italian tile, and walls covered in mahogany and cherry woodwork; We feel this stone castle-like would impress even Cinderella.
From AJ Dunlap:
The decor was all designed by the bride and brought to life by the owners of the venue. Most of it was even hand made by the bride and her family. She designed the invitations and programs herself, and even be-dazzled her shoes tiny gem by tiny gem. It was spectacular. Everything was gold, from the curtains hung for the ceremony, to the invitations, chairs, aisle runner, even the draping in the reception, it was all a breathtaking palette of gold. Her aunts hand-stitched the petals onto the ombre aisle runner.
“Come as you are, stay as long as you can, love is the key to our seating plan.” Is love the key to your seating plan? If so feel free to steal the super cute idea below!
Their cake was a stunning 6 layer masterpiece, and in lieu of a traditional champagne toast, they did root beer floats. For favors they gave out succulents in a bottle that waited for the guests at their seats. Each place setting had individual china patterns. The head table was a 15 foot masterpiece, laced with gold, chandeliers, and lace.
