Milk Glass Inspired Wedding

white and gray wedding ideas

Before Elaina found a venue or dress, she found the inspiration for her wedding décor. While shopping at a yard sale in her hometown of Richfield, Ohio, Elaina purchased a collection of vintage hobnail milk glass. After that, Elaina and Alex were committed to an rustic but elegant style for their wedding, featuring pure white milk glass centerpieces and accents. Both Elaina and Alex’s families rallied around this concept, combing estate sales and antique stores to find the perfect pedestals and vases for their wedding décor.

Do you love it as much as we do? A neutral color pallet combined with a rustic venue and modern styling insures that you will need to see every last detail that the full gallery has to offer. This beautiful day was captured by Aster & Olive Photography.

Hand Assembled Flower Arrangements

Elaina knew she wanted her flowers and greenery to complement, not compete with, the timeless style of the vintage milk glass. After considering and rejecting more colorful options, she decided that deep green boxwood would be the base of her floral arrangements, accented with pure white roses, freesia, and hypericum berries. To give the arrangements and bouquets a touch of deco-glamour, she added branches of metallic gold ruscus. All of the wedding flowers were purchased in bulk and arranged, with the help of family, in the days leading up to Elaina and Alex’s wedding.

Family Collaboration

Elaina’s parents made the wreaths and candle sconces for the ceremony, cut and arranged yards of burlap, and hung countless gold and silver paper lanterns from the barn rafters at the beautiful Brookside Farms in Louisville, Ohio. Using vintage picture frames her mom had whitewashed and prepped with chalkboard paint, Elaina made the wedding signage including an interactive “guest book.”

Fall Wedding

From Jessy Pesce :
Jessie & Steve’s autumn wedding was surrounded by blue skies & bright red leaves. The ceremony took place underneath the sunshine, with only a gentle breeze & on site at the Georgina Pioneer Village. They shared their first kiss as newly weds underneath a gazebo that was decorated with pumpkins, hay & autumn coloured flowers.

Take a Moment to Appreciate Your Work

From the Bride:
I wish I had stopped before the ceremony to take in all the decorations and taken a moment to notice all people that were sitting there in support of us. I had to wait for the photos to see what our ceremony looked like because I forgot to take a moment to notice the little things. So my advice to brides: Stop, step back, and take in the moment you’ve worked so hard to create.

Olive orchard venue

Our couples’ story starts here…The olive trees were our starting point, a standard to the Portuguese landscape and to the golden olive oil that enriches our traditional dishes, coveted all around the world. Choosing an Autumn setting, right as the harvest season was starting, provided us olive trees filled with black olives. Their elegant touch was the olive on top of the cake!

Olive wedding ideas

For all of you olive lovers here’s a few cute ideas for how to incorporate them into your wedding in classy and beautiful ways. 1. Use olive leaf branches with your flowers, they can be incorporated into anything from your bouquet (like the one above) to your centerpieces, and even to garnish your cake! 2. Think olive themed wedding favors. There are so many great ways to do it including olive tree saplings, a jar of your favorite olives (maybe a mix of the bride and grooms favorite?), or vials of olive oil, they can even have different flavors! 3. Repeat olive leaf motifs throughout your stationery and signage to pull everything together. 4. Stock up the bar with olives and party the night away!
