A Garden Variety Vintage Wedding

Monday, October 25, 2010

Here's another charmer of a summertime wedding! This was vintage, garden-inspired goodness at it's best. Gabrianna was a JOY to work with... completely creative and full of inspired ideas! We had so much fun talking about these flowers. Sit back, relax and enjoy these images {via John Deprisco} of a really stunning, personal event!

These bouquets were composed of all kinds of summertime goodies! We used tons of dahlias, marigolds, zinnias, delphinium, hot pink hydrangea, and even fragrant garden roses. Accents of vivid green geranium leaves and soft silvery dusty miller completed the garden look!

The bride's bouquet was wrapped with vintage lace (from her mother and grandmother's gowns) that was also used in the design of her gown. How beautiful is she in this dress (custom designed for her by a local dress designer, Janay A Handmade) Isn't this the most charming, romantic dress? Just lovely! Also, huge props to CaraSue Hall for the bride's beautiful hair and make-up!

Here's her lovely little cake table display! They made those cake platters, aren't they gorgeous? Completely fitting with the theme, and I love the tiny little bird toppers (these were part of her grandparents' wedding in the 40's!).

These centerpieces were so amazing! The bride collected countless amounts of vintage white milk glass. The effect was amazing: effortless, whimsical, and personal! Check out these centerpieces, and the huge variety of mismatched vintage linens on the tables, as well! The reception took place at Californo's in Westport... another KC classic with gorgeous exposed brick and a variety of spaces to add interest to your event.

Gabrianna, I can't thank you enough! It's brides like you that make me love my work! I am so thrilled for you, congratulations! :)
