Craving A Natural Beauty
From Timeless Moments: The bride's romantic and elegantly understated wedding dress didn't only illustrate the essence of who she is, but gracefully set the tone for the entire day. I wanted everything to resemble natural beauty, nothing too complicated for this genuine couple.
There were a few guidelines given, and among the simple requests, to use the bride & groom's favorite color as much as possible. Green was everywhere. The entire property was covered with lush greenery; not to mention, the bridesmaids' dresses, the groom's tie, table linens, the moss lined ring bearer box, and the enchanting flower crowns.
Fresh Flowers & Perfect Paper
The florals were another great love. It was a goal to cover as many details as possible in the beautiful floral combination that the wedding invitation inspired and the extremely talented florist brought to life.
When we went to go look at all the flowers at the shop the day before the wedding, I jumped for joy! The flowers, shop, arrangements and florist were everything I was hoping for. I knew she was the perfect choice.
