Vintage Inspiration in the Crossroads...

Sunday, January 24, 2010



Yes, I know what you're thinking. This wedding is REALLY as cute as can be, and it just doesn't get much better than this for me! Adorable bridesmaids, really great vintage style, and one of my FAVE bridal gowns to date. Kylie and Matt's wedding took place at the Arts Incubator in KC's Crossroads District... what an amazing, inspiring location!




Although I didn't do ALL the flowers for this event (the bride's talented mother did all the reception decor!), I worked on the personal flowers and some ceremony decor. The bridal bouquet included champagne-toned sahara roses, peachy-beige hypericum berries, ivory hydrangea, fragrant gardenias, lisianthus, and touches of silvery dusty miller. It was the perfect accessory to the vintage-inspired lace of the bride's gown.



Below, the groom's boutonniere was also a lot of fun to make.... I included vintage buttons (from my mom's massive collection!), champagne spray roses, and seeded eucalyptus berries.






Above, is that not the sweetest cake? Although I didn't do the flowers for this cake, I had to include this image because it was just so completely perfect! The color, the icing pattern, the vintage buttons and brooch... and OH! the tree stump. :) The image below is the "altar" set-up for the ceremony. The bride's family built the table and provided the lanterns, candles, cross, etc... I just provided the finishing touches of lovely blooms. This was SO romantic, and fit the space completely.




The bridesmaids carried candles accented with tiny rings of flowers and berries, vs. a traditional bouquet. Really charming, and they added the perfect romantic glow to the space, along with the whimsical white lights hung all over the ceiling.
