Yellow flowers at Loose Mansion

Monday, January 28, 2013

Yellow... I love it so much. I have yellow accents throughout my house and even my front door is painted the perfect shade of yellow! It's one of my favorite colors and I love when brides choose it for their flowers! 

Taylor's wedding was filled with personal touches and lots (and lots!) of beautiful flowers. Her bridesmaids wore navy blue gowns and the yellow flowers just popped! Check out her gorgeous bouquet, filled with patience garden roses, freesia, snow berries, hydrangea, craspedia, lisianthus, stock, ranunculus and more:

 Below, our lovely bride, and the detail shot of her horseshoe (good luck!) pin-

 Love this shot of her sweet flower girls and their "wands"- one of her girls refused to wear shoes and this image is even cuter for that reason! Love.

Here are some of the ceremony and reception details. Loose Mansion has so many beautiful areas to decorate- they have lots of gorgeous pieces for their brides to take advantage of, and the mantles are my favorite! We used sunshiney-yellow, super fragrant sliced lemons- the smell was just divine.

 The bride's mom also collected tons of vintage milk glass- such a cute effect! 

 The bride and groom are doctoral candidates, studying in Africa. Obviously it's such a meaningful place for them, and they brought this detail in with these carved animals that the bride brought home from her travels.

Above, the amazing marriage certificate that is such a lovely keepsake! From the bride: "This picture is of the Quaker marriage certificate that all of our guests signed.  We had it made for us by Steven and Sharon Schwartz at Barry's family is Quaker, so we decided to borrow this tradition and use the certificate in place of a guestbook. The certificate has sunflowers to represent my Kansas roots, Celtic knots to represent Barry's home country, and berries and hydrangea since these were in my bouquet. We now have the certificate framed and hanging on our living room wall."
