Tina became obsessed with the idea of a barn wedding the first time she ran across photos of the Dana-Powers House. We’re huge fans of the wedding venue ourselves. It’s one of those love at first sight kind of places. Luckily Tina was blessed with inheriting her mother’s creativity because the invitations, menus, programs, table numbers, signs, favor boxes and decor she designed are matching of their gorgeous venue, and most excellent photography by Birds of a Feather.
Brie found it a little difficult to focus on one theme so she kept looking for words or moments to be inspired by. She knew she wanted the wedding to be an elegant and timeless event, knew she liked the color purple, and that she wanted it to look a little vintage and have a relaxed, natural vibe to it. So she drew inspiration from Outstanding in the Field, an event they’ve had dinner at several times. They wanted the reception to be a huge dinner party for all of their friends that just happened to be after a wedding ceremony.
The florist, Fox Fodder Farm used nigella, lavender, lamb’s ear, queen ann’es lace, peonies/dahlias, and some cornflower in Brie’s bridal bouquet. She wanted a bouquet that looked like she had just walked through a field of flowers and picked a few to carry down the aisle.
Hello lovers! Happy Valentine’s Day. Before you all get dolled up for tonight’s festivities take a peek at Susie + Jared’s totally red, totally fun San Diego wedding. There’s a bit of everything in their wedding – succulent centerpieces, a paper heart-covered aisle, a dessert table with pies for days, and bridesmaids dressed in red. So perfect for today!
Geronimo balloons, metallic gourds, pheasant feathers and fondant hearts were all at home amidst Alissa + Mark’s elegant and memorable affair at the Weisman Art Museum. It houses a great collection of modern art, overlooks the Mississippi River bank and was the perfect wedding venue that represented unique aspects of who these two lovebirds are. And if the architecture of their venue isn’t pretty enough, check out Alissa’s wedding dress!
Weddings like Liz + Josh’s make us smile. They’re so bright & cheery, filled with pretty DIY details and it’s so easy to see how their wedding was truly a labor of love. From the garlands to the gold glitter disco ball, the tabletop centerpieces to the corn hold game and signage. It was the perfect bohemian, outdoor, relaxed and intimate celebration they were going for. And what better place to gather than their close friend’s home. Both the ceremony and reception took place in the backyard, under the stars and harvest moon.
My dress was such a heartfelt venture custom made by Miss Tashina. I was able to use bits and pieces from both my grandmother’s and my mom’s wedding dresses. Being as though neither my Grandmother nor my Dad are with us any longer.. It meant the world to me to know they were there with me in spirit.
