We're back! So, we took a little time off for a bit there! Things were too busy with weddings, weddings, and more weddings and then before we knew it, it was the holidays! But now we're through with that (and we've almost got all of the evergreen pitch off of our fingers) and we're ready to start looking ahead to our 2012 weddings! So we thought we'd start by looking back wistfully at some of our favorites from 2011!
This was one of our faves because of the personal touches. I love it when the couple's personality comes through in the decor. For this couple, the groom was a musician and the bride wanted a very natural and organic feel. I think those elements came together beautifully.
The bouquets featured succulents, scabiosa seedheads, roses, ranunculus, hydrangea, stock peach roses, and lady's mantle. (Loved the fuzzy succulents in this one!)
The bouts were ranunculus, succulents, astrantia and dusty miller detailed with hand cut leaves created from sheet music!
The ceremony was kept simple and natural-using bright green ferns as contemporary altar arrangements that then doubled as centerpieces at the reception! (It's always great when we can get a double usage out of arrangements!)
The pews were decorated with cones made from birch bark. They were filled with coordinating hydrangea, lady's mantle, astrantia and seeded euc. (We loved these! I just love the look of cones on the pews! We've done them from beautifully patterned papers and fabric too-they can add so much texture and richness to a simple combination of flowers.)
On to the reception...
Which was held at the Warch Center on the Lawrence University Campus. An amazingly beautiful space.
The ferns from the ceremony doubling as centerpieces.
The other low style of centerpieces...a footed glass bowl filled with hydrangea, goatsbeard, lady's mantle and of course, more succulents!
Okay, so we didn't have to much to do with this (except for the flowers on top), but I do love a picture of pretty little cupcakes all in a row! (Or rings!)
And last, but not least, this is my favorite pic from the wedding. These are the centerpieces all lined up in the design room waiting to go out on delivery. Something about the lighting and the colors in this pic makes me fall in love with it every time I see it!
