A Happy Handmade Wedding
in Lime Green & Yellow
♥ ♥ ♥
Reflecting all that they love and hold dear, Megan and Drew’s wedding day was inspired by the joyful yellow and lime green colour combination. Desiring a beautiful view of one of their favorite cities, they chose to exchange their vows and celebrate their wedding day at Oakland Zoo’s Snow Building, California in September.
Equally striking when combined with pink, as seen in our Lime Green and Fuchsia Pink Wedding Theme feature, enjoy the yellow and lime-green themed details captured by Orange Blossom Photography that made up their special day.
Lime Green & Yellow Wedding Look
For their wedding look, Megan had several special details! For her “Something New”, she wore a stunning Ann Taylor lace wedding gown. For her “Something Blue”, she painted her toes and ring fingernail a beautiful blue. She wore a bracelet for her “Something Borrowed”. Lastly, a necklace given to her mother by her father when they were dating was her “Something Old”.

Lime Green & Yellow Wedding Ceremony
Megan and Drew held an unusual and special wedding ceremony that was meaningful to them both. As part of the ceremony, all guests were asked to stand and greet one another. During the greeting, a beautiful song sang by a friend could be heard in the background. Once the ceremony resumed, the brides mother gave a speech and reading, before the couple exchanged vows.

Handed out to their wedding guests at the outdoor wedding ceremony, their wedding programs also included a thank you section and listed the bridal party and close family members of the couple.

Lime Green & Yellow Wedding Reception
The lime green and yellow themed reception was a bright and beautiful sight to behold! Special attention was paid to every detail.
(Above) For the table centre pieces, live lime trees and various green and yellow flowering plants and potted herbs were used. Their wedding guests were encouraged to take these potted plant decor home as one of their wedding favors.
(Left and Below) For their wedding guest book, a basket was displayed on a table alongside framed old photographs of Megan, Drew and their loved ones. Guests were asked to write in their guest book or to sign a card and pop it into the basket.

Lime Green & Yellow Wedding Ice Cream Bar
Following the first dance, the newlyweds took the party outside where they took their first bites of ice cream from the gourmet ice cream stand set up by Ici Ice cream. Instead of a wedding cake, handmade ice-cream cones topped with unique flavors enticed their wedding guests throughout the event.
