A Wedding Full of Whimsy

Rachel and Tom really love the Wes Anderson film Moonrise Kingdom and were drawing their color inspiration from the hues often seen throughout the movie: mustard yellow, light pink, and a little pop of orange and navy for fun!

Moonrise Kingdom Inspired Bouquet

They wanted the wedding to have a relaxed, outdoor feel and envisioned wildflowers all over the place. The bouquets were heavy on the greenery to evoke the natural feel Rachel desired with pops of ranunculus, poppies, and hellebores. There was also a little bit of linderas thrown in (the brown leafy plant), to give the bouquets a unique element and to give a nod to the outdoorsy-ness of Moonrise Kingdom.

Do It Yourself Reception Decor

For the reception, Rachel curated all the bottles, vases, and vintage books used in the centerpieces. Rachel’s father made the tin candle holders and her grandmother made the lace overlays for the napkins. Rachel also DIY'ed the flag table numbers and the lantern wedding favors.
