Mackenzie’s wedding was scheduled with me more than a year in advance and by the time the big day came, I was basically friends with all her family members! She was so genuine and lovely and her day was filled with special touches including their awesome welcome sign and the pieces of her mother’s wedding dress tied around her bouquet. I ordered velvet burgundy ribbon from Ukraine to compliment her bridesmaids’ dresses and painstakingly put together an arbor with protea and garden roses. This was a labor of love and it turned out just the way they had dreamed.
The ceremony space didn’t need a lot of decor to make it beautiful, Trinity Tree Farm is awesome like that! The couple rented some wine barrels and I added some greenery and flowers to make the lanterns pop.
Mackenzie’s bridesmaids wore deep burgundy and I used raw satin to tie their hand-gathered bouquets.
I used greenery-only bouts for the guys and a blush garden rose for the groom. Who doesn’t love a groomsman who can play expert air guitar?!
Mackenzie’s bouquet was one of my all time favorites, the composition and shape came out exactly like I had hoped on the first try! I often shape bouquets in a mirror so that I can make sure the florals and foliage fall exactly the way they should.
I did a dessert table heart wreath for a wedding at Trinity earlier in the season and now it’s one of my favorites to do! Look at the adorable painted mason jar accents! The bride’s grandmother painted them for her.
The table centerpieces were gathered roses, dahlias and eucalyptus- this is an excellent way to maximize your decor budget and simple is often the best route!
This was one of my favorite sweetheart table arrangements, it ended up coming out with just the right balance of locally sourced ferns and deep colored roses.
Congrats again to the amazing couple! All photos by Samantha MacFarlen
