New York garden inspired wedding: Brie + Jimmy

February 15, 2013
hand picked nigella, lavender, lamb's ear, queen ann'es lace, peonies/dahlias, and cornflower.

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.

One of the most heartfelt DIY projects was done by Brie’s mom. She made all the table runners – one side was burlap and the other side was a burlap colored cotton with dark green vines and an occasional white flower with their names and date embroidered.
