words from the vendor

From Your Cloud Parade:
20 years ago this wouldn’t not have been done, but things have changed for the current bride. Having your wedding in 2014 or 2015 gives you the freedom to be creative, show your personalities, and get crafty. So be bold and don’t feel like you have to purchase every element.

Marc and Lissie’s flowers where designed by Art with Nature who took the traditional “mixing of sands” and added that to the jars to push the color palates brighter. Their Cake was the final touch to tie in the entire wedding theme. Sweet and Saucy did an excellent job of picking a color that would “pop” when guests entered the room. Most of the small decor elements and attire, like the wedding dress, head pieces, and jewelry was purchased on the Your Cloud Parade wedding Marketplace where they can browse the site by “colors, styles, or themes.”
