Wedding-day weather Overcast and drizzly Number of guests 150 Wedding budget $30,000, but they were having too much fun to stick to it Wedding theme A Marie Antoinette–like wonderland with spider accents How they made the day their own She wore four frocks throughout the celebration, and there were complementary accessories for him. The bride handmade all of the boutonnières and bouquets; the former included skull cameos, the latter, a lipstick mirror and perfume bottle for freshening up. Dessert French macaroons in salted caramel, pistachio, coconut, and banana crème; petits fours; a lemon meringue tart; and a raspberry pistachio cake Reception cocktail The Fayette 87: a French 75 with a personalized twist, the perfect combination of her favorite (bubbles) and his (gin) Guest favors Mini baroque frames declared their guests’ titles and the land (table) they were to preside over, and there were stemless flutes filled with champagne candy Alone time They snuck away throughout the night for outfit changes, which gave them time to share special moments and soak up the experience Three words to describe the day Fancy, magical, curtsylicious Honeymoon Le Blanc, a spa resort in Cancún, Mexico
