Brittany & John

            Brittany and John's late May wedding day dawned blustery and cold. Fortunately, by late afternoon it had warmed up a bit for the ceremony, but it was quite nippy that morning when Brandon and I arrived to start setting up and creating the installations. This rustic barn at Crystal View Farms in Falling Waters was the chosen backdrop for their big day.

 

            If you squint at the photo of the barn doors in the courtyard you can see the baby's breath bedecked arbor under which they said their vows. That was a fun one. Very sad I didn't get a better photo. Then there was the installation I created behind the sweetheart table. Situated at the forefront of the dance floor the couple could sit here for a few moments of peace and quiet and observe all their happy guests. The walnut sweetheart table was custom built by my husband, Brandon, especially for Brittany and John. They now have this piece in their home and it's something that will withstand the test of time and be able to be passed on down to the next generation as a precious memento from their wedding day. I love family treasures like that, don't you?

            Color selection for Brittany revolved around a classic palette of white, green, and blush. I used one of my favorite blushy white wedding roses, the White O'Hara, for its numerous petals and sweet scent. In addition to the White O'Hara, there was also stock, astilbe, nigella, veronica, dusty miller, several types of eucalyptus, ranunculus, hydrangeas, larkspur, snapdragons, lisianthus, astrantia, and for a bit of color, waxflower and Cappuccino roses. If you look closely at the boutonnieres, you might even see some wee, still-green blueberries.
