Our sweet couple met while working as managers for Trader Joe’s, so we played up their story with a nod to love in a grocery store amongst the setting of an apple orchard in Julian. Blush, coral, and peach florals from Sweet Marie Designs set the tone with touches of red and hunter green. The couple was surrounded by ladders filled with blooms and apples ripe from the picking as they read their vows. Of course we couldn’t resist having as many apple-related items as possible, including a caramel apple martini specialty drink and mini Dutch apple pies in place of a traditional cake for guest favors and dessert. Then we incorporated the Trader Joe’s theme with paper bag invitations from Peanut Press and a sample bar of our own including caramel apples, mini pies, and the store’s famous Cookie Butter. Our escort display read “Check Out Here” and featured apple pie filling cans with each guest’s name and seating assignment. We encouraged guests to take “a walk down the aisle” to find their table numbers among the stacks of cans. Guests were favored with mini cutting boards that also doubled as place cards, and larger boards served as their table numbers. We wish Jen and Jim a delicious marriage and a life of appley-ever-after! Head on over to Green Wedding Shoes for more on their wedding 🙂
