Heaven is a place on Earth for a bride on her wedding day

When floating into a glowing room full of dimly lit candles and soft pinkish purple lights accented with glistening silver decor, one would assume that this space was something that could be only found in a dream, however for this lucky bride, Natalie Yannotti, it was transformed into a reality thanks to Trends to Traditions’ sister company, Wedding Design North. Focusing on all of the visual elements of the wedding and reception, WDN assisted Natalie with making her important day come to life as she envisioned a heavenly romance theme to compliment her dream come true, which was the moment when Natalie knew she was going to spend the rest of her life with Jason Tyler.

This beautiful couple married at First Baptist Church in Oakland on August 25th where the entire ceremony and reception were filled with an aura of pure love. What distinguished this wedding besides the fact that it was planned by Wedding Design North, was Natalie’s enthusiasm put into preparing an unforgettable day; right off the bat she knew what she wanted her wedding to be like, which resulted in being utterly divine. With a color scheme of satiny ivory, silver, deep eggplant and pink, the reception room was transformed into heaven on earth. Candlelight and rose petals were scattered everywhere. The twinkle of velvety lights that brushed the edges of the sweetheart table. The sweet arrangement of blush roses, lilies and hydrangeas that served as centerpieces. Everything in essence tied together so nicely!

These newlyweds were not only blessed to have found each other, but also the opportunity to make their wedding day so spectacular! The passionate theme and every inch of the event were vividly divine!
