A Day of Beauty

Although I don’t do wedding planning anymore, I helped out a friend who was getting very stressed out with her wedding plans. She was at the point of just letting her vendors make the final decisions due to being overwhelmed.

Her day turned out beautifully, but I think the moment I loved the most was seeing how emotional her father was. And my favorite design feature was my suggestion to do a floral chandelier hanging above them as they exchanged vows, rather than ceremony floral arrangements.

The day was captured by Matt Lien Photography.

Bride and mother of the bride were equally stunning.

The bride had a very specific idea of what the look of her wedding she wanted, but had a hard time designing it, so we were worked with Summer Harsh Botanical Artistry and Ultimate Events to give her the exact look she dreamed of.

On Solid Ground Rentals on New Grounds

On Solid Ground Rentals moved their studio and storage to the cutest new space.  We went their Warehouse Warming Party and everything was so stinkin’ cute!  (of course, one shouldn’t expect anything less!)

OSG Furniture Grouping

There is a cute outdoor space overlooking a garden that Sarah set some furniture groupings, as well as the very yummy Dessert Table.

OSG Dessert Table

Studio Fleurette did the flowers and I was obsessed with them.  Gorgeous colors and perfectly designed into the containers.

Of course, no party is complete without beverages and the signature drinks were very yummy, served in jelly/jam jars.  Mix up the jelly and blueberries set at the bottom of the jar and you had a ridiculously delicious summer cocktail.

Brilliant Birch

Of course being from a rural area where birch covered our wooded land, these birch straws just struck my fancy.

These straws with a birch design on them are perfect for rustic and/or northwoods events and at $8.95 for a pack of 144 from CB2, this detail is brilliant without breaking the bank!  Oh, and not to mention they are very environmentally friendly!
