Erin and Keith’s rustic and homespun wedding at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club was filled with touches of their personalities and love. From incorporating their love of breweries into their growler centerpieces to posing with the entire Harry Potter series, we just love when couples choose such personal details.
This sweet couple met playing soccer when they were six years old. Their next meeting came in junior high when he reluctantly went to a school dance and she slow danced with him as a favor to a friend (that ended up being a groomsmen!) They didn’t really date and realize they were the perfect match though until post high school graduation. Erin and Keith LOVE to joke around and play pranks, which even played into their proposal in Mexico. They had just purchased a house and a pricey vacation so she had no expectation of a proposal on that trip, but he got down on one knee and pulled out a black velvet box…which contained his high school class ring! He later proposed with the real ring, but they had such a laugh about it. They have two dogs they adopted together and love to try new restaurants and donut bakeries. Now that the wedding is over they can’t wait to continue traveling and exploring the world together.
Erin carried a lush and hand-tied bouquet of gathered wildflowers composed of chamomile, cosmos, delphinium, lisianthus, snapdragons, thistle, veronica, and eucalyptus with florals that favored blue, white, and grey. We sourced her beautiful blooms from Michigan and I’m still having wildflower dreams about those cosmos! Her bridesmaids, wearing navy floor-length dresses, carries similar clutch bouquets wrapped in soft gold silk ribbon and the added touch of navy viburnum berries. Keith’s boutonniere complemented both the bridal bouquet and his navy tuxedo.
Cog Hill Golf & Country Club needs very little assistance for an outdoor ceremony, but we enhanced the provided trellis with a soft draping of natural fabric and a lush asymmetrical design of coordinating wedding blooms.
For each of the guest tables, Erin provided wood slabs, gilded bottles, and growlers that we filled with organic designs composed of baby’s breath, thistle, lisianthus buds, and eucalyptus varieties.
Thank you to Erin and Keith 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!
