How simply stunning are the florals by Modern Day Design? Garden roses, ranunculus, berries, oh my… I particularly love the elegant water bottles (no ugly water pitchers here) and the chair treatment with olive branches is quite simply perfect.
I love the simple arrangement of ranunculus, mint and berries (mint is one of my favorite greens to use in flowers, it smells sooo good). And can we talk about the flatware? Obsessed. Its the bride’s grandmother’s silver, gorgeous no?
Since the couple wanted more of a dinner party feel, a record player played music, while guests feasted and ate homemade desserts (the groom’s brother made the macarons).
At the end of the night, the couple set some sky lanterns (basically a mini hot air balloon) up and away… What a stunning way to end the night…
From the bride, Tamara:
My theme for the wedding was to have an intimate family dinner reception. I loved the idea of adding vintage finds as well as using memento’s of our grandparents (who are no longer with us)! With the wedding being in late summer- we chose to use flowers and a color palette that could reflect that change in season.

I’m so in love with this adorable pink and aqua wedding photographed by Beaux Arts Photographie.
For the ceremony, the bride made a backdrop of floaty pink and aqua fabric, that swayed in the breeze…
The bride’s bouquet was made up of garden roses, peonies and hydranga. For a keepsake of the day, a clock engraved with the couple’s wedding day was carried by the groom.
Brass bells were hung on aqua board for guests to ring after the couple’s kiss.
Pink and gold tea cups make a pretty vignette and aqua striped wine bottles are given as bridesmaid’s gifts…
The bridesmaids wore flowly pink chiffon dresses with greek sandals, hitting the perfect relaxed garden vibe…
Seating cards on lines of twine and elegant calligraphy is used for signs…
Pink dahlias, delicious flatbread, champagne, and a gorgeous pink cake all make for a relaxed and beautiful wedding reception…

For the reception, La Tavola’s sequin New York linens added some serious glamour to the tables. The bride and groom sat at Town & Country’s fun domed Montecito love seat.
For table decor, a mix of birdcages filled with moss and candles, alternated with clusters of lanterns and tons of flowers. For the table numbers, wood plaques were painted a coppery gold and a custom decal was applied.
Tucked into the flowers little birdies perched (the bride loved birds).
Around the menu a sequin belly band added even more sparkle.
For the cake, we used the groom’s parent’s cake topped. It was such an adorable heirloom touch.
And then for the groom’s cake, his favorite guitar was recreated.
Special thanks to all the vendors who helped create this fabulous event!

For this wedding I incorporated the bride’s favorite colors and the play her sister used to read her as a child, A Midummer Night’s Dream.
For her bouquet, I used Magnolia leaves (from her home state of Missippippi), ranunculus, peonies, lavender, lilac, hudranga, and a touch of lily of the valley.
Pink ranunculus with lavender and geranium were pined on the groomsmen.
The twin flower girls carried copper buckets filled with lavender rose petals and gardenias in their hair.
For the pre-ceremony welcome drinks, I found this cool wrought iron piece that looks like a gothic window. I love the chippy paint and the color!
The ceremony aisle was lined with rose petals and sherperd’s hooks filled with flowers. I loved the Versaille chairs we used, such a nice change from the usual chivari chair.
For the ceremony arbor, I used magnolia leaves, lilac, hydranga and lavendar roses. I wanted to make the lilac drip down similar to wisteria which was another of the bride’s favorite things.
Up next.. the reception!

I had so much fun doing this Americana themed Fourth of July Wedding. I used loads of red gingham ribbon for decor, along with pops of blue, white and yellow. It was such a cheery palette and perfect for a summer wedding.
For Alisa’s bouquet she knew she wanted red, but she also wanted daisys for sure. So I mixed peonies, dahlias, daisys and blue thistle for her all american look. Around the base, I wrapped her grandmother’s locket.
For the bridesmaids bouquets, I used buttons Alisa made from left over fabric from her table linens/quilting squares.
When I met with her she brought a bunch and wasn’t certain how to incorporate them, so I suggested using them on the bouquets/bouts and seating cards.
For the groomsmen I made boutonnieres that were all slightly different from each other. This one is nigella wrapped in burlap with a light blue button. Next up the ceremony and more details… Photos by the darling Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie.
