Teresa and Shane are a warm, funny couple – giving them a palette that was as unique and inviting as they are was a fun task!
A full-greenery aisle adds an element of organic drama to any aisle, and can bring some bohemian beauty to a traditional space.
Tips for making the bridesmaids’ attire and bouquet to the bride cohesive: if a darker color, incorporate those hues into the bridal bouquet, and let lighter shades of the focal color tie the bridesmaids bouquet back to the bride!
Not allowed to drop petals at your church? Petite bouquets for the floral girls are an adorable option!
(p.s. these flower girls and I made their bouquets together! It was the best.)
On a budget? Reuse *everything* from the ceremony. This big piece was actually for the base of the altar, and doubled beautifully at the foot of the sweetheart table!
A little green vining on the borders makes a huge difference in turning up the elegance volume of this tent!
A little greenery on every element brings a room together without feeling over-decorated.
For the floral enthusiast, here are the ingredients for the bridal bouquet!
quicksand roses, apricot lisianthus, white tibet roses, burgundy scabiosa, tinted solidago, gunny and willow eucalyptus, gravellia, cotinus, & orange ranunculus.
And I will post this picture until the day I die… because this is the most sincere shared glance I’ve ever seen in a wedding gallery and *oy vey* have I seen a ton. Captured by the infinitely talented Marie.
