Garden Party Bridal Shower

I wanted to design something very feminine with vivid colors for Caitlin’s bridal shower. A garden party seemed to be a perfect fit. The inspiration for the whole party started with the quote: Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” The invitation set the tone with a watercolor floral border, a honeycomb patterned envelope liner, and a bright pink envelope and Tricia Egan of VIOLET FLORAL DESIGN combined a cheerful mixture of peach, ivory and pink Peonies, blush Garden Roses, Lilac and Clematis to create a fun pastel garden-fresh palette.

A special detail, the adorable floral wristlets that greeted each guest with a Ranunculus bloom attached to the most beautiful pink ribbon. The splendid pink striped bar provided the perfect spot to gather and sip champagne. For a sweet treat, guests nibbled on colorful macaroon favors. The scrumptious waffle bar was the perfect choice for this brunch party (and what fun to include Pop Tarts in the buffet! Guests also loved the “Pin the Lips on Ryan Gosling” game! And the bride won! It turned out to be the perfect spring party that the bride wanted.

The whole party was captured on film by the talented CONNIE DAI.

Alex & Greg’s wedding is being featured in stunning Spring 2014 issue of Aisle Style Magazine! Their wedding was extra special to me because I work with Alex a lot at weddings. Alex does the most amazing hair for weddings and even did my own wedding hair. So it meant a lot when she asked me to help plan her wedding.

Getting Ready Inspiration

While the ceremony and reception is often the focus of a bride’s planning, let this shoot serve as inspiration for another very special part of the day…the “getting ready”.  There is so much excitement and anticipation during this part of the day. Here is some ideas to make it even more special.

Molly & Jeff’s Wedding featured on Green Wedding Shoes

I’ve been dying to share this wedding! I apologize now for the picture overload, but these photos from EP love are amazing and Molly & Jeff’s was was such a joy to be a part of; they were so open minded and just a joy to be around. So I am so excited to see it featured on Green Wedding Shoes today, click HERE to see the feature!

Most importantly, their wedding truly turned out to be a reflection of who they are as a couple. The Lyons Farmette was the perfect backdrop for the laid back celebration complete with baby goats, chickens, gardens, and a darling renovated airstream. The bold and happy color palette really set the tone for this fun and vibrant wedding. And of course, Molly looked just ethereal in her gorgeous Tara LaTour gown from Anna Be. Of course we can’t forget the gorgeous flowers! A Florae incorporated a vast variety of flowers, such as peonies, blushing bride, ranunculus, scabiosa, sweet peas, and cafe au lait dahlias all keeping within the color palette for a lush and full look.

If you are considering doing a first look, but still not sure let these photos help convince you!  From the bride: “My absolute favorite part about the day was our first look. It was so special to have those few sweet moments together to embrace, breathe, and truly feel the magnitude of what we were about to do. It’s easy to get caught up in the little details, but in the end my favorite memories are of the feelings that were evoked by being surrounded by the people that we love the most.

First look from the 2nd shooter’s view..sigh!

The stationery was designed and calligraphed by Sally Balt of la Happy. Sally created these invitations using her whimsical custom calligraphy and vintage farm motifs, all in shades of mint green and brown. Kraft envelopes with an arrow design liner, mad lib response card,  and vintage postage made them just darling.

The ceremony was simple and sweet. The bride’s aunt was their officiant.   A Florae hung simple bud vases from the venue’s tree. It was the perfect backdrop.

The reception was playful with a touch of modern. Some of the other notable details included a dessert station set atop a whiskey barrel table, handmade striped napkins, and the bride’s grandmother’s vintage egg cup collection in the tablescape. Oh and we can’t forget about the delicious food from EAT!

From the bride: “One of the most special things about our wedding was that my dad made all the beer. In the several months leading up to the wedding, he spent every spare second tending to his home-brewed creations and making sure his recipes would please our guests. He even named each of the nine types of beer after something special in Jeff and my relationship, like Belle Duvel (our dog’s name) and Smoke Machine Porter (Jeff’s proposal involved a faulty smoke machine). Although his recycled bottles weren’t very beautiful, our guests were incredibly impressed by his hard work and the how delicious they all were.”

 Last but not least the couples getaway car, a vintage 1972 VW bus (thanks Hippe Limo)

Congrats Molly & Jeff! Thanks again for letting us share in your joyous day!
