a colonial fairytale
From B. Jones Photography: We put together the color palette in the range of cream, periwinkle, French blue, Tiffany blue, and moss, agate green. Our design concept focuses heavily on vintage, antique items, layers of fabrics, and accessorize with gold. Thus, we name our theme Colonial Fairytale. The advantage of choosing Vibrant Firs as a wedding venue is that it is very versatile. Couples can design their weddings more rustic, boho, or elegant and Vibrant Firs would be perfect in any of these settings. It also provides plenty of indoor space inside the barn in case the weather changes.
Waterfront reception on the dock
While putting together the reception table, we made the floral centerpieces smaller to showcase and blend into the gorgeous nature surrounding. We also fan out the flatwares a bit to make the place setting less formal and homier. We layered two different type of lighter fabrics on top of the deep blue velvet tablecloth and to make them jump out visually, the reception chairs are also clothed in Parchment Linette. At this point, we simply added more textures with taper candles and votives. Our favorite part of the table is definitely the spools of ribbons that double as place cards and add a really personalized, special finishing touches.
Gorgeous watercolor cakeJan Kim Grumbles created a two-tier wedding cake featuring a smooth color block design with a blue watercolor top-tier and a center cascade of pure, hand-piped buttercream flowers inspired by the lake setting. Every aspect of the cake focuses on the simplicity of a traditional wedding cake while also capturing the unique detail and placements present in the buttercream flowers.
