Made of breezy cotton, the bridesmaids’ robes—a gift from the bride—were as practical as they were pretty on the sultry wedding day. In a triumph of kismet coordination, they also matched bold floral tablecloths that stole the show during cocktail hour. “My mom and I found the linens first, so perhaps subconsciously I was thinking about them while searching for robes,” says Andra.

Andra liked the idea of marrying in a church but recognized the logistical benefits of hosting both ceremony and reception at one place, so Stacey fashioned an alfresco chapel of sorts using pews from Snyder Events.

Vibrantly patterned linens and boldly hued florals took over the cocktail hour. “Remembering those tablecloths make me and my mom smile to this day,” says Andra of BBJ Linen’s “Blumen Shantung.”
