W.E. Love // All the details

Mark Maser and Paul Ledwon exchanged marriage vows on July 26, 2013 at the beautiful Brandeis Mansion, which Mark and his family own.

The couple invited 16 guests for a dinner following their vows. Dustin Moorehead of Creating Atmosphere, designed the masterpiece dining table spreads with a beautiful display of exotic flowers and baby’s breath.

Each guest was welcomed to his or her seat with a flower corsage or boutonniere as a favor. Disposable cameras were also at each place setting.

Nathan Newhouse and several staff from Attitude on Food prepared a six course meal of a tomato and smoked Gouda soup shooter, a salad of seasonal mixed greens, chilled cantaloupe and peach soup, Atlantic salmon, braised Cabernet beef short ribs and Pavlova, a light meringue-based dessert.

Mark and Paul then had a reception for 150 guests on September 15 with an elegant Edwardian garden party theme.


NOTE: The Brandeis Mansion, which expresses a beautiful Downton Abbey feel with crystal chandeliers, silver serving pieces, ornate china and period furniture, is available for private parties, small weddings and receptions and rehearsal dinners.

When Traditional and Rustic Meet

You wouldn’t typically think mixing traditional New England blues with rustic elements would work…but it did for this Oceanside wedding! The sheer amount of flowers that lined the tables of this tented reception were simply spectacular. The details were spot on, from “wishing stones”, to mason jars, to a mossy green place card table. The collision of customary and earthy elements somehow flawlessly came together to create this amazing wedding.

Venues // Willow Creek Glass Chapel

WillowCreek1 I guess we have a rustic, country chic wedding theme going on this week so far! WE found these images of the Willow Creek Glass Chapel. My oh my do they have a spacious set-up! After recently doing some remodeling and updating, this might be a new venue option to check out. They of course have the Chapel, but then they also have a barn banquet hall to rent out (with gorgeous new hardwood floors from what we can see!).

Couples would have to apply for a marriage license in Iowa.


Also something to note, they are having an open house on September 15th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Subtle changes to switch things up for the reception

So maybe you’re thinking that you want to change up your look between the ceremony and the reception but you don’t want to spend the extra time and money looking for and buying a whole different dress. Well, here’s an idea for you.

Pick out a piece of statement jewelry — maybe something that follows your color palette and will add a little pop to your after ceremony style. ReceptionJewelry

The three necklaces and turquoise earrings on the left can be found at Von Maur and the two necklaces on the right can be found at Hello Holiday.

What if a necklace or different earrings doesn’t fit your look? Try a dress that can be layered with lace or a tulle skirt like this dress from Blush Bridal Boutique.

Venues // NEW outdoor space

River’s Edge Park in Council Bluffs opens this weekend (starting off with a two-week event, Loessfest). If you’re looking for a modern, yet very green, natural look, this would make a great outdoor wedding venue. The park is spacious enough to hold any number of guests and provides perfect photo opportunities on the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge and Omaha’s riverfront.
