Kentucky florist, SDSU Jackrabbits with gold accents

The most genuine and charismatic couple! Lydia and Paddy thought of everything when it came to their wedding. The love and appreciation they have for their family and friends was clear! The day started with a beautiful ceremony at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Brookings, South Dakota where they had two close family friends officiate. Followed by the reception at the Swiftel Center where bistro lights hung throughout the entire space and added a romantic ambiance to the space. Guests kept busy during social hour with corn hole games and a photo backdrop!


They wanted to share their mutual love for South Dakota State University into their special day! Hitch Studio enhanced the centerpieces with gold jackrabbits to represent SDSU’s mascot. The couple also had SDSU’s ice cream (home of the original Cookies & Cream!), accompanied with homemade caramel and hot fudge sauce served as their dessert.


A Kentucky based florist, (hometown to the bride!), filled each table with delicate fresh florals, bringing elegance and beauty and filling the room with a fresh aroma! Danielle created intricate bouquets and boutonnieres for the bridal party, added greenery on the pews for the ceremony, enhanced the grand seating chart with florals, designed cascading pillars at the entrance, crafted a garland on the head table, embellished the photo booth with greenery and the list goes on! She did not disappoint, and the long trip was well worth it!


The couple put a lot of thought into their head table style and opted for a large kings table for the wedding party of twenty-five! Being surrounded by their closest friends and family was important to them and they enjoyed dinner at a full table. The florist created a stunning garland to fill the entire length of the table and Hitch Studio incorporated jackrabbits and gold accents.


Individual favors for each guest; including a golf ball and tee with a personalized thank you note inside.

Hand painted acrylic signs! How creative are these?!

Customized table numbers, with photos of the bride & groom at similar ages. What a fun way to incorporate childhood photos!  

Each guest found their name card at their table which was personalized with a wax stamp.

Personalized coloring books, crayons and treats for the little ones.

Ending the night was thoughtful and unique with a pom-pom exit with their closest friends and family!

I was blessed to get to know Lydia and Paddy throughout the planning process. Your love will continue to overflow onto those around you. Thank you for choosing Hitch as your wedding planner and decorator!
