Fast forward a few years to their wedding in Fayetteville, Arkansas. One of the stand-out elements of the day was Juliet's vintage dress, given to her by her mother and grandmother for the ceremony.

Wedding Decor and Details Details

The wedding reception was held in White River Landing. Their wedding donned a sweet pastel color palette contrasted with a bright pop of yellow. Lemons were a staple piece in the reception design as they accented dining tables and exuded a cheerful ambiance. The sea of candlelight throughout added a romantic element, especially when the sun went down.

Rose of Sharon Floral Design Studio took advantage of all the lightweight summer blooms in season and mixed them in with classic garden roses. Pastel candy-colored zinnias were sprinkled throughout the reception in milky white bud vases. All the floral menagerie paired perfectly with amber-colored vintage drinking glasses against beige tablecloths for a clean and crisp look. Juliet describes her day as follows, " It was like being on the Italian coast at an Italian garden party."
