Love & Lavender – Burney Wedding – 051317

AED Couple: Rebecca & Jacob Burney

Married On: May 13, 2017

Ceremony & Reception Venue: Della Terra Mountain Chateau

What We’ll Never Forget:

>Rebecca & Jacob hired AED for full-service wedding planning and we had so much fun working with them and their families to plan the most perfect wedding day!

>Rebecca & Jacob live in Maryland so when they came into town a few months before their wedding we packed the weekend full of fun tastings, mock up appointments and meetings with their amazing vendors.

>The look of their wedding was stunning. The varieties of purples and golds fit perfectly with the venue and the floral arrangements from Newberry Brothers brought the whole look together.

>The couple had so many fun celebrations during their ceremony, including the Groom walking down the aisle to the Superman theme song, a sand ceremony with a live performance by a friend, an African jumping of the broom tradition, and a bubble send-off into a decorated golf cart!

>Both Rebecca & Jacob surprised each other with gifts! Rebecca gave Jacob socks, superman cufflinks, and an adorable surprise video that matched his engagement video, by Kelsey Luciano Productions, for him to watch. Jacob gave Rebecca a stunning bracelet. So much love.

>They gave their guests beautiful lavender soap favors, as well as adorable hangover kits that included a small Gatorade bottle, Tums, Advil, and pretzels – what fun ideas!

>Rebecca & Jacob were so sweet to mention Ansley Event Design in their toast! They are such a fun-loving couple and you could see examples of this throughout the whole day, especially during their first dance – all smiles!

Ready to Pop – Katie’s Baby Shower – 11.30.13

Event : Baby Shower
Theme : Ready to Pop

Guests of Honor : Katie and her growing belly (baby Graham)
Event Date : November 30th, 2013
Hosts : Sarah Ansley (from Ansley Event Design) & Katie’s Mother – Maryann
Location : Hidden River Club House in Parker, CO

What We’ll Never Forget :
>Katie is my sister-in-law, so it was an honor to throw a baby shower for her and my soon-to-be nephew, Graham.
>I gave Katie a whole list of themes to choose from and she chose ‘Ready to Pop’.
>We used a bunch of balloons, buttons, themed-food, soda ‘pop’, etc. to carry out the chosen theme.
>It was so fun using AED’s wedding decorations to create a stylish, unique baby shower.
>We used an old window frame and shutters to display baby pictures of both Jeff (dad-to-be) and Katie – showing just how cute Baby Graham is going to be.
>We had onesies custom-dyed to match the events’ colors and we hung them from the fireplace mantel.
>Guests were asked to paint a letter block so that Graham would have a whole set of ABC blocks to help decorate his nursery.
>We played a game called ‘Guess the Baby’ and asked guests to bring a baby picture of themselves. Each guest then had to decide which baby was which guest.
>We also played a game where we broke the guests into 4 teams. Each team had to pop their set of balloons, get the letter out of the balloon and spell a word. It was hilarious watching them all try to pop their balloons the fastest.
>Each guest went home with a ‘pop’corn favor, including a shower pouf, bubble bath, a small bottle of champagne, a scented candle and more.

Thank you to Ali & Garrett Wedding Photography for taking these amazing pictures and capturing the memory of the day for forever.

knew exactly where to go for the celebration.

shower-Desktop-0013As guests arrived, we asked them to take a ‘selfie’ and write a note to Graham. We would then later assemble a scrapbook full of the pictures and notes for
Graham to enjoy.

shower-Desktop-0004Each guest wrote their name on a mason jar to use for the day as their drinking glass.

shower-Desktop-0014One of my favorite decorations – a balloon wall!

shower-Desktop-0023Food was displayed on 2 of our vintage tables in trunks and on pedestal plates. Katie’s Mother-in-Law (my Mom) made a fabric wall to cover the opening from the kitchen into the event space. We made individual letters to spell out ‘Let’s Eat ‘Til We Pop’ for the vintage window frame behind the food. And, we used ‘pop’ themed food, such as popcorn, lollipops, gum balls and more.
