Ryan and Lauren got married on a very hot August day... 106 degrees to be exact. BUT the heat didn't seem to phase anyone. All vendors were hard at work to get everything set up, the girls were busy getting ready in the bridal suite, periodically stepping out to see the set up progress... while we were bouncing from one shady spot to another to keep these flowers as fresh as possible. (Ok, maybe not literally bouncing, but it was a true art to fit numerous buckets of floral in small area of shade).
Heat was also no match for this rustic, romantic wedding vision. Garlands for days with all the elegant blooms. and the perfect amount of wood accents... this one was a beauty.
Lauren's bouquet was made up of allllllll the gorgeous blooms including blush garden roses, ivory roses, dinner plate dahlias, burgundy dahlias, and blush and white spray roses. Throw all that together with some silver dollar, seeded, and parvafolia eucalyptus... result below! :)
This reclaimed wood wall made for a great contrast against the soft color pallette of her bouquet. We are LOVING the decor upgrades happening at the farm!!!
The bridesmaids bouquets were a scaled back version of the bride's. They included ivory roses, blush/beige roses, blush spray roses, white carnations, and all the same eucalyptus.
Speaking of bridesmaids, I knew one of them! Meet Anne... Anne is a boss babe, who started her own catering company out of high school. She was not only a bridesmaid in Lauren's wedding, but her company (Anne Taylor Catering) catered as well! Crazy! So fun seeing her!
For the boys... We combined three spray roses with baby's breath and parvafolia eucalyptus and wrapped them in twine. Love the elegance with a touch of rustic!
Baby's breath and parvafolia made the cutest little bout for the ringbearer!
The man of the hour wore the burgundy boutonniere to match the pop of burgundy in the bride's bouquet, while the groomsmen wore the white ones.
Can't forget about corsages for the moms...
...and a flower crown for the flower girl! Was made to match the ringbearers boutonniere ;)
The look of satisfaction after delivering bouquets to the girls...
He's just the sweetest! :)
Lauren had a unique idea of having an arch mark the entrance to the ceremony. No argument here on her choice of floral and greens to add some romance!
This piece is mainly comprised of silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus, BUT there are small pops of floral including some dinner plate dahlias, ivory roses, burgundy carnations, and blush and white spray roses.
With an arch marking the entrance... Lauren requested two flower pots to mark the altar. She also loved the idea of having a cross off centered with a garland draped on it so it wouldn't get lost in the "woodsiness" of the tree. We'll just pretend that's a word ;)
Bold but romantic right?!
These babies included all the same flowers we used throughout the entire wedding. Love us some free flowing flower pots!
For the best combination of rustic and romance yet, Ryan and Lauren's reception included a mixture of farm and round tables... 27 of them to be exact! Both included the same floral and greens for centerpieces, but each had a slight variation in look.
The round tables had a lantern with a eucalyptus wreath around it. Burgundy carnations, blush and white spray roses, and limonium were placed throughout the wreath to add some color.
The farm tables had a garland down the center with the same types of flowers placed throughout.
I don't think we've ever felt as accomplished after a wedding as we did after this one... Biggest wedding of the year completed, and we are so happy with the results.
Huge congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Yoshida! Blessed to be a part of their special day!
Until next time!
