Magnolia wedding inspiration
Brita Olsen & Rachel Mercier created the concept for this elegant forage & guild shoot using golden birch leaves, cedar with mini pinecones, red brunia, magnolia leaves, white amaryllis, and gold spray-painted seeded eucalyptus for a gilded touch. The tablescape was kept simple but looking full with long and low centerpieces perfect for a long table seating scheme.
Nearly Newlywed, a Brooklyn based online shop selling pre-owned wedding gowns, provided this gorgeous lace wedding gown. They paired the dress with a hair crown made of gold spray-painted eucalyptus, and a complimentary wedding bouquet that’s just stunning.
Here’s what you need to get this pretty wedding bouquet:
* 10-12 large magnolia leaves with longer stems. (You can trim up the leave at the bottom along the stem to create more stem if needed)
* 5 white/cream peonies
* 5 stems of red brunia
* 7 stems of gold spray-painted, seeded eucalyptus
* 5-7 stems of cedar or other evergreen
After adding a simple linen runner, Brita dipped into her vintage collection and decorated the table with tarnished silver and antique trophies. Simple Magnolia leaves wrapped with striped ribbon punctuate the setting or could function as place cards. Details like birch wood votives and lace printed napkins look rustic yet cosmopolitan.
