Joanna and Alex's wedding at The Morris Arboretum seemed almost secretive. The pure whites and pretty blush tones of Joanna's floral selections stood out beautifully against the dramatic forest-green backdrop that surrounded the couples ceremony and reception spaces. The Morris Arboretum is filled with amazing photo opportunities around every corner, with lush, wild landscaping and historic stone walls - Love Me Do Photography took full advantage and used their skills to beautifully capture the couples romantic setting.

Gahhhhh, obsessed with this! Can't think of any other way to describe this bouquet but 'elegantly wild.' Eucalyptus, dusty miller, dahlias, honeysuckle and roses were tied together with long cascading ribbons for this look.
Joanna's bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her own bouquet, and were each tied off with long ribbon tails. We love the gown selections, those hues are gorgeous!
Alex and his groomsmen wore bouts of spray roses and seeded eucalyptus, with a fun velvet ribbon wrap leaving the stems exposed for a more natural look.
We kept the ceremony decor to a minimum - not too much needed with a backdrop like that! Huge garlands of eucalyptus were strung along shepherds hooks for a more dressed up aisle. We also added garland to her Welcome Sign and the railings at the altar.
A cozy tented space off of the main building was made even more intimate with hundreds of candles scattered throughout garlands. We placed rose heads throughout the garlands to dress them up a bit, and Joanna's provided table numbers brough the whole look together.
We loved this cake - and cake topper! Placed on our wood stump cake stand, we surrounded the table with votive candles and placed some dahlia and waxflower on the different tiers.
Congratulations, Joanna and Alex! Thank you so much for having us be a part of your big day!
