I am so excited to share last weekend’s wedding with you all today!  You can see from my pre-planning post, we were going toward levels of berry mixed together with tons of silvery green eucalyptus for a woodsy, whimsical look.  It was the perfect mix of moody and bright hues for an August wedding.  There was an earthiness to color palette even through we included a lot of purple and pink.  The wedding and reception were held at an old train station which has since been repurposed as an event space.

Not only did we do the traditional bouquets and table arrangements, but we also constructed two thirty foot garlands for the altar area, which we then moved to the tuscan style head table for the reception.  All of the photos were done by Brad Young. Keep on reading for more and more photos of the event!

A small little garland gave guests a hint of what was to come when they stepped foot inside of the station.

We mixed together low, color-filled arrangements in gold vases with tall topiaries made of baby’s breath.  The eucalyptus carried on in the topiaries and even in the glittery Mr & Mrs signs that adorned the back of the bride and groom’s chairs.

Doesn’t that cake look divine!  I held to my Whole30 and didn’t have a taste although I still marveled at the gorgeousness!

I love how the garland worked both in the ceremony and in the reception.  One of my favorite things to do for weddings is repurpose ceremony florals for the reception.

Guess what?  I had so much fun making the garland, I want to make more for the holidays (maybe even as early as Thanksgiving)!  I’ll do a tutorial for you all soon!

 

p.s. Did you see that the Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back?!  I have a make-at-home recipe (and free printable) that you’ll love, so pop back in tomorrow for the scoop!
