Wedding of the Week: Double-Meant to be Together

No, you don't need to get your eyes checked, but you are seeing double-- a double wedding that is! As the end of June approaches, we were reminded of a wedding that we did four years ago that was twice the fun! Nicholas and Erich and Gaylen and Ginna are two sets of identical twins that fell in love with eachother and had the ultimate double wedding in 2007. I guess when you have shared your whole lives together, your Big Day wouldn't be any different!

Here we have the happy couples. Gaylen wanted a yellow wedding and Ginna wanted a hot pink wedding. The compromised by having two ceremonies in their respective shades.

Double-Meant to be Together! Gaylen and Ginna's father called Hayley immediately after dreaming up this creative "Double-Meant to be Together" idea for save-the-dates. It was such a different idea we were immediately up to the task!

The ultimate Wedding folder invitation. The outer envelopes we 9x12" large to enclose it all. The invitations for the wedding were done in yellow and hot pink.

Each guest received not one, but two invitations in the folder, and then a shared map and response card!

Gaylen's invitations, programs, and napkins were yellow.

And Ginna's set were hot pink!

The floral arrangement at the welcome table combined beautiful hot pink and yellow flowers, along with their Bridal Portrait that literally looked like a mirror-image.

Each bride participated in the other's wedding. They even had all of the same bridesmaids and groomsmen!

The two wedding ceremonies were separated with a cocktail hour so the wedding party could change colors, and flower arrnagements were swapped out on the aisle and altar as well.

Here are the bridesmaids for Ginna's wedding in their hot pink!

The reception at was divided down the middle with yellow on one side...

...and hot pink on the other side, of course!

The double "S" monogrammed cups and napkins added a nice touch.

Even two cakes were cut at the wedding.

I'm sure they were double delicious!

The beautiful Brides at the Sweetheart table, set for four!

Perhaps because it was truly "Double the Fun", this was one of our favorite weddings at HH Design House, and we're glad we got to share it all these years later! Happy anniversary, Ginna & Erich and Gaylen & Nicholas! Don't forget to post your comments on our blog, check out our website, and "like" us on facebook! We hope your week is doubly wonderful!

T.G.I.Fabulous--OPI Texas Collection

Thank goodness it's Friday but more importantly, T.G.I.Fabulous! We are crazy about the OPI Spring/Summer 2011 nail lacquer collection for two reasons: 1. The colors are amazing 2. It's all about Texas, y'all! We certainly are proud of our state and heritage. Now we can show our Texas spirit on our finger tips and two steppin' toes. The line features six jewel toned colors: Don't Mess with OPI, Suzi Loves Cowboys, San Tan-tonio, Austin-tacious Turquoise, It's Totally Fort Worth It!, and I Vant to be A-Lone Star. There also six sorbet-like colors: Do You Think I'm Tex-y?, Houston We Have a Purple, Too Hot Pink to Hold'em, Y'all Come Back Now, Ya Here?, Big Hair...Big Nails. Shown below is our favorite shade in the Texas line called Guy Meets Gal-veston--but we may be a little biased. Tell us which color is your favorite with a comment!

The OPI website is also fabulous! The "Try on This Color" tab allows you to see which OPI color will look best on you. It's fun, interactive way to see all that OPI has to offer.

Wedding of the Week: Across the Pond in Pink

We are starting something new and exciting on the HH Design House blog. Each week, we will feature a wedding (or party) that we've worked on in a post. We hope you will check back weekly to see our featured events!

With all of the excitement about the Royal Wedding, we were reminded of a wedding we did from across the pond. Claire and Adam were married in England in 2009. Hot pink and white were the colors selected by the bride. The couple used invitations, programs, place cards, and other paper goods the Bride custom designed with Hayley.

The Beautiful Couple "signing the registry."

Claire and Adam are using the programs designed by HH Design House.

The groomsmen's ties had the wedding date embroidered on the tag of their ties. How cute!

Even the guests got in to the spirit of the color scheme, including this one who rocked a hot pink hat! Why can't we bring this fashion to the states?

The placecards for the reception were placed on a board.

Instead of using numbers for table identifiers, the couple used names of the mountains they have climbed together on cards tied to the centerpieces.

Here are the bride and groom standing in a meadow in the beautiful English countryside.

The elegant place settings featured menu cards designed by Hayley.

Dancing was a must at the reception. The bride and groom provided flip flops for the guests' tired feet, so they won't ever miss a beat.

What a beautiful and charming wedding!

We hope you liked what you saw from our "Wedding of the Week" post. There are many more to come! Please visit our website for more wedding ideas. Don't forget to "like" us on Facebook and suggest us to your friends.
