When we sat down with Maria to plan her spring wedding, we instantly knew, this would be a unique wedding. Maybe it was the vintage teacups she pulled out of her bag and asked us to work with, or maybe it was the tiny garden gnome statues she asked to be worked into the décor. After assessing her unique and inspiring personal touches, our next thought was this wedding was leaning toward an “anthropology” feel and we were so excited to go down a new path. We pitched a couple new décor options to Maria and luckily she saw where we wanted to go and immediately jumped on! Now our centerpiece logs have now become a hug favorite, but this was their debut moment, and I must admit, I love it when they are so earthy and bohemian with pops of color. The signature floral in the logs was purple kale nestled in between blue thistle, lotus pods, verigated pittosporum, and moon lagoon eucalyptus. We also loved pulling in the birdcages, also their first use, for a fresh spring feel. We filled the birdcages with vintage teacups, from the bride’s grandmother, which were overflowing with purple lisianthus, queen anne’s lace, white wax flower, seeded eucalyptus, and ranunculus in white, pink, orange and yellow. To tie in the look, we placed floral on the top of the birdcage and surrounded it with wood votive candles, milk and mercury glass, and tufts of reindeer moss. It was warm, it was unique; it was perfect anthropology.

Shannon’s wedding was hands down, one of the most beautiful weddings we have ever had the privilege of assisting on. The combination of romantic blush toned floral in the hobnail milk glass, mason jar, and mercury glass centerpieces, and our most favorite accent, the wooden signs lining the bride’s walk to her groom; which perfectly punctuated 1 Corinthians 13, “Love is patient and kind”, this couple really captured an intimate, romantic, and an entirely accurate meaning to pledging your commitment to someone. While every guest felt included, the stirring feeling of almost secretly watching this happy couple exchange vows, words, and love, so truthfully and devotedly was radiated throughout their ceremony. The white hobnail and clear Mason jar containers, filled with blush roses, pink stock, white hypericum berry, dusty miller, and baby’s breath, alternated each other and the wooden scripture signs as they were nestled into lush rose petals in various shades of pink. The bride added our “arbor floral” package to have three floral blocks to help finish framing her ceremony. The final touch was a cross with floral, purchased through her florist. For the reception, signs she had made were hung on our striking rock fireplace, while their head table was placed just in front. It was a magical wedding and one we think fondly of for many years.
