As the founder of Pinklily, a glam clothing and shoe storage solution business, we expected Sascha Griffin’s wedding to be nothing short of fabulous – and we weren’t disappointed!
Sascha met her hubby, Scott when he was painting her parents’ property and it was after many years of dating they decided to tie the knot. This was Sascha and Scott’s second wedding, so their brief was to have each of their daughters involved and make sure everyone had fun!
The couple chose to tie the knot at a church that they both drive past every day, so that every time they saw it, they could reminisce on their big day. Living in an old Fire Station in Petersham, they found an hall right behind the church that they knew would be the perfect blank canvass for their dream reception – old school glamour meets New York Piano bar.
Sascha and Scott engaged Gregory Atkin Creative to conceptualise and style this space into the couple’s dream theme. “Gregory appreciated my attention to detail, saved us a lot of money and was so professional and easy to work with. His ‘can do’ attitude made our dream wedding a reality”, says Sascha.
When guests first entered the doors to the reception venue, they were greeted by a long row of waiters, offering them a drink. Gregory and Sascha devised a wedding logo featuring a double ‘S’, representing their initials. This logo served as their motif and was duplicated throughout the wedding on monogrammed cushions, serviettes, the waiter’s aprons and a custom-made mirror which was hung above the church entry. Guests enjoyed delicious canapés and dinner by Katering, cake made by Mattraville cakes.
Crystal-ware and cutlery decked the tables and the floral centerpieces featured Sascha’s late mother‘s favorite flower, Gardenias. The couple chose to have a live singer, perform A Thousand Years when Sascha walked down the aisle.
The bride’s glamorous, silver dress was purchased online from a New York pageant dress provider and Sascha splurged on a pair of Jimmy Choos to wear on her big day. The bridesmaids were the couple’s two daughters and both of them wore Tiffany blue dresses.
