Happy Wedding Wednesday beautiful people! I can’t wait to share this beauty of a rustic wedding with you all! We will dabble in a little country, add a little elegance, and keep it simply gorgeous! A stunning fall wedding for Katie and Jeff at Silver Lake Country Club will set the tone.
When I first met Katie and her mom, we actually had to cut it short and reschedule, since the Blackhawks were in the finals! Luckily we were all understanding fans, and it was the funniest, shortest meeting ever! When we did have the chance to finally gather all of the concepts, I was over the MOON with this wedding!
Katie’s only requirement for her bouquet was for it to be “fluffy”, so of course I made it so! She carried a stunner of cafe au lait dahlias, ruffled lisianthus, the palest pink astilbe, and layered ranunculus enhanced with a touch of greenery. I fall in love with her bouquet every time I see it! The finishing touch was incorporating the veil from her mother’s wedding. I just LOVE details like that.
Since the bridesmaids were wearing stunning sangria-like dresses, and Katie LOVES sunflowers, we were able to showcase the simple beauty of “chocolate” sunflowers, and enhanced with wheat and textures of astilbe and solidago.
For the reception centerpieces, we took Katie’s country concept and rocked it out! Fun fact, this family is related to the Ball family! As in Ball mason jars!! Obviously we had to incorporate those sweet jars into the design. We used two different styles showcasing a variety of elements through the reception space. Guest tables utilized lanterns, placed off center, with small birch branches intersecting around the design. We filled a mason jar with baby’s breath, chamomile, wheat, burgundy solidago, and burgundy dahlias. We also had birch logs surrounded by similar mason jars filled with chocolate sunflowers and other seasonal blooms.
Thank you to Katie and Jeff for having us “floralize” your beautiful day. It truly is an honor to have worked with such an amazing couple. Wishing you a million years of happiness!
