words from the vendor

Inspired by the European style of Sand Rock Farm Bed & Breakfast, our photo shoot was full of classical beauty and vintage charm. A stunning white-washed table, provided by Classic Party Rentals, was the centerpiece of this elegant affair. The tabletop was adorned with mercury glass pedestal bowls overflowing with cayenne, peach, and creamy white Garden Roses, Lilac, Scabiosa, and potted Rosemary topiaries.

Tapered candles in gorgeous mercury glass holders, provided by Warmth Company, added height and drama to the tablescape. A placid blue napkin peeked out from the cream china, adding an unexpected hint of color in the otherwise neutral place settings. Finally, the rustic stone walls of the reception space were softened with ivory lace curtains, pulled to the sides with satin blue ribbons.

Waldo Press crafted beautiful letterpress invitations and paper goods with elegant fonts, thoughtfully embellished with hand-drawn botanicals. Pure Bliss Baking Co created a stunning textured, three-tiered cake, displayed on a silver embossed cake stand and artfully adorned with Garden Roses, Ranunculus and greenery.

The young bride was the embodiment of femininity and casual elegance in a vintage-inspired lace gown by WattersTrudys Brides hand selected the satin beaded belt, beautifully tying in our floral motif and a perfect embellishment for the delicate lace bodice. The bride’s hair, styled by Kelly Jones Hair & Makeup, was curled in loose tendrils, with delicate braids adding a touch of bohemian beauty. She held a romantic, garden-style bouquet, finished with vintage lace and sky blue satin ribbon. The groom was dashing in a sand colored suit and blue tie, complimenting the ribbons of the bridal bouquet.
