Alfond Inn: Behind the scenes with Amanda and Keith

 

Hi there! Chalk Shop Kim here. I wanted to share a few of my snapshots from set-up and styling this beautiful wedding at the ever-lovely The Alfond Inn in Winter Park.

Amanda and Keith work in the film industry: he is in lighting and she is in makeup. Since they were on the road for a good deal of the planning, the couple counted on me to be creative with the guidance of Kristi from Tickled Pink Brides. The goal was to infuse the night with movie references but in a modern, glamorous way using mixed metals.

The outdoor ceremony snack was delicious popcorn from our local favorite, Kernel Encore.

I loved how the display of table assignments came out! Our small mirror board was titled “Gaynor Studios now screening…,” and the table scape foreshadowed the fun of the night to come. Each table was a movie title that either the couple had worked on or was significant to them.

The couple chose the Big Board with the open air photo booth to entertain guests after dinner, during dancing.  The photo concierge from Our Photo Booth Rocks are super fun to work with. (More info on the options they offer, here.)

We customized the glasses and board for the couple’s attachment to Batman and movies. The groom provided the sayings that we used on each side.   As I always say with the Big Board, just look at the smiles and you know it is a great way to entertain your guests!

Guests walked away with an oversized 4 X 6 photo (or three, depending how much time they spend posing)!  The couple is provided a zip drive of all the images.

To conclude the evening, a candy bar was set up for guests as they exited. It was marked by a board that reflected the vintage insignia for Warner Bros with Amanda and Keith’s initials. “It’s a Wrap!”
