A Metallic Affair At the Pinery At The Hill

Casavant Wedding

Casavant Wedding

Bride: Julie Okey

Groom: Andrew Casavant

Married: 1/13/18

We loved getting to see our linens in use at the Casavant’s wedding. The Pinery at the Hill was the perfect location for their romantic wedding, filled with sweet details and just a touch of a Great Gatsby decor. Our metallic linens made the feather centerpieces at the reception pop, and complimented the colors of the bridal party’s dresses and bouquets beautifully. Julie and Andrew chose our metallic orchid and silver to cover their tables, which when added with the dark wood and chandeliers of the venue and the decor, gave the event a more dramatic and glamorous tone. Scroll down to see all the photos of their beautiful day!

6 Tips To Help You Create Your Seating Arrangements


6 Tips To Help You Create Your Seating Arrangements

Seating assignments can be one of the biggest headaches of wedding planning. The RSVPs have finally come in, which means the wedding is getting close, and you have limited time to create the chart. It can be a daunting task, especially when you have guests who don’t get along or don’t know each other. To make it a little easier on you, make sure you have a system that makes it easy to move guests around (so post it notes or on online program, not just you scribbling with a pen), and that you follow these tips!


Number One

If you are having a buffet, you don’t need assigned seats! You can totally get away with open seating (if that’s your style)!


Number Two

If you are having a plated meal, you MUST assign guests to a seat. There should be either an seating chart or a table of escort cards near the entrance of the reception. This is in addition to the place cards at the guests seat, telling them which seat at the table is their’s. The catering staff will need to have the seating chart sent to them in advance, with notes on which guest will be served which meal and any food allergies.


Number Three

On the PLACE CARD, there should be some symbol that illustrates which meal the guest has selected. In case the cards get mixed up in placement (or let’s be honest, a guest moves themselves to a different seat), the guest will still be served the correct meal.


Number Four

A Place Card is the one that is at the place setting. An Escort Card is the one they pick up at the entry, telling them which table to find.


Number Five

Escort Cards or Seating Charts should be arranged by ALPHABET, NOT TABLE NUMBER. None of your guests know what table number they will be sitting at until they find their name! It will create a huge line and back up the entire reception.


Number Six

If you have a large guest list, your seating chart or escort card display should be accessible during the cocktail hour (after the ceremony). This will give your guests something to do during that time, other than drink. It will also help the transition to their dinner tables run smoothly and quickly.



Get beautiful linens for your tables! (We had to say it!) Wow your guests and make them want to have a seat!

When you visualize your dream wedding reception, Pinterest-worthy table settings probably come to mind.  Linens play a major part in achieving dreamy tablescapes and bringing your wedding vision to life, and it’s important to keep a few things in mind when choosing which types of linens to use.

Make a statement

When decorating your wedding reception, think of the tables as the base for your entire look. Tables take up most of the space in the room, which means linens are the first thing guests will notice when arriving. Don’t be afraid to be bold or make a statement with your table settings! No matter your personal style or the color scheme of your wedding, there’s a linen out there that’s fit for your occasion.

Maybe you want minimal table settings, which means selecting a linen that can speak for itself. Or, maybe you’re looking for a solid base as a linen so you can decorate the table with big centerpieces and fun accessories. Either way, you’ll need a tablecloth that ties the whole look together. Whether it’s a pop of color or a fun material, using a less-than-standard linen for your reception tables will create a focal point and create a cohesive look for the whole room.

Don’t forget about accessories

While the first thing people will notice is the tablecloth, there are plenty of other ways to incorporate linen. Chair covers, napkins, overlays -- they’re all key to completing the look.

A beautiful wedding is in the details (along with a host of other things, like the people and the memories made, of course) and linen accessories are the perfect touch of elegance your reception needs to create the reception look you’ve visualized.

Ask for help

There are so many choices to make when planning a wedding. After landing on major decisions like the date, the dress and the venue, it’s easy to get stuck on details like linens. That’s where your linen company comes in. Think of working with a linen company as having a teammate; your designer is here to help! Let your designer know what the rest of your table settings will look like and don’t be afraid to ask for their opinion or ideas. Everyone you work with to help plan your wedding wants to ensure that you’re getting the special day you’ve always dreamed of, and linen companies are more than happy to be a part of that!

Plan ahead

After you’ve found the perfect linens for your wedding, it’s time to make arrangements for the big day. Work with your designer to ensure you’re both on the same page about logistics and details. Discuss the number and size of the tables you’ll have, including additional tables for food or cake, as well as any extra details. It’s especially important to provide updates should anything change and you need more linens or different sizes. Planning details and logistics ensures the entire process is seamless and that you can check one more thing off of your list.  



St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder, CO // Real Wedding // Dani & Nick



Boulder, Colorado


Congratulations to Dani and Nick!

Jewell Event Design helped coordinate their quintessential wedding at St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder, Colorado.  It was a very special day shared with all their closest family and friends! 

Even with the picturesque mountains in the background, your eye was drawn to the stunning bride as she met her groom at the end of the aisle.  As the ongoing guests watched the beautiful couple exchange their vows, it was a moment that will forever make them one!

As the ceremony proceeded into the ballroom, it was a jaw-dropping moment!  No detail was left untouched, and that especially goes for the linens!  The power of tablecloths, napkins, or runners should not be undermined when it comes to the overall look of your day.  The newlyweds lavish style and elegance flowed through their choices.  Soirée Linen provided a classic, pristine look of ivory shantung silk tablecloths with white pocket-folded shantung napkins.  Design Works' floral arrangements laid perfectly amongst the linens.  The room was filled with the most beautiful floral aromas. 

A five-star rating to the servers, chef and kitchen staff for the evening.  The formal dining was magnificent. And for dessert, Intricate Icings provided a delicious 4-tier white icing cake that made everyones mouth water.

The moment was captured by Beth Photography and All Digital Studios Videography.  The evening was a hit with a live band, Soul School, and guitarist, Omar Villanueva.  The couple shared an intimate first dance together as the adoration poured from each others eyes.  DTP events DJ helped draw the guests onto the dance floor for the ultimate finish to a perfect day! 

This is just the start to a wonderful life together!  To many more happily ever afters to the new Mr. & Mrs.!
