Mary and I spent last week down at the shore with our family (yes, we even vacation together!) and while the break was amazing, I am glad to be back! It is always nice to have that time to relax....we both came into the office this morning completely refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the wedding season. I am excited to blog about this wedding....not only because Melissa was one of my favorite brides, but also because the flowers are so pretty! Melissa, and her adorable husband, participated in our Rock the Dress photo shoot that we did last summer and lately I have been stalking her facebook checking out the pictures of their gorgeous new baby girl. We always love working at Running Deer and will actually be headed there this Saturday for Julianne's pretty pink wedding.
Melissa's favorite flowers are daisies so we, of course, made sure we incorporated them into her bouquet. We also used yellow dahlias, lavender stock, and silver brunia berries. A vintage lavender hanky that belonged to her grandmother was tied around the stems.
I love this shot of the flowers in the center of the ballroom floor!
How cute are these bridesmaids! I loved the varying shades of purple dresses and the one floral printed dress is so cute! They carried bouquets of lavender stock, lavender dahlias, yellow mums, and silver brunia berries.
We added lavender rhinestone pins to the daisies in Melissa's bouquet for that perfect touch of shimmer.
I loved this yellow bout against the grey tux.
Interesting story about their ceremony. Everything was set up outside and ready to go...the sun was shining and the weather was gorgeous. Suddenly a thunderstorm blew in and the amazing staff at Running Deer quickly moved everything inside. Here are the shepherds hooks with hanging vases of purple hydrangea lining the aisle - outside.
And here they are moved inside! Just goes to show that either way, inside or out, your wedding ceremony will be beautiful!
I am in love with these cute little lavender votive cups. We lined these along the front of the head table...with a few daisies to accent. These votives are available for rent (we have lots of colored votive options).
A single daisy was tucked into each napkin.
The centerpieces were a trio of square vases accented with lavender ribbon and a yellow daisy. The vases held lavender stock, dahlias, and hydrangea.
Check out these cute purple bud vases! Also available for rent.
The Sweet Life Bakery did an amazing job with the cake. I love the pop of yellow against the white!
Thanks Melissa for sharing all of these amazing pictures with us. You were a gorgeous bride and we loved working with you! Congrats on your new baby girl!
