Weddings at Running Deer Golf Club are always a treat for us. Located just 15 minutes away, it is one of the most popular venues that comes through our shop, making it somewhat of a comfort zone. This gives us some confidence in flexing our creativity, and we love how each event that takes place here takes on a whole new twist based on the style and preferences of our client. Stephanie and Tom were a great fit for this wedding filled with beautiful pastel tones and flowing greens.
Tina Elizabeth Photography sent us these beautiful images capturing the glow found in both the bride and the decor - even though this wedding took place in September, it's giving us amazing spring vibes!
Tom joined the ranks for "Grooms Who Make Us Swoon" by ordering a special surprise arrangement for Stephanie - is there anything sweeter than a romantic gesture from your groom on your wedding day? Look at her smile!
Ohhhh my gosh. Stephanie's bouquet was gorgeous. There was such an eclectic mix of greenery to fit her "Enchanted Forest" theme, creating a flowing, natural shape. Huge white roses and pink garden roses gave just the right amount of color to make this arrangement truly something special.
Stephanie's bridesmaids carried green and white bouquets made with ferns, waxflower and white roses. Their soft mint gowns really complemented the color scheme and style for a soft, romantic look.
We kept Tom's bout simple and sweet, with a white ranunculus wrapped in twine.
Stephanie's request for "Enchanted Forest-inspired" decor meant lots and lots (and lots) of vines. We wove layers and layers of smilax around the pergola at Running Deer's ceremony space, covering the entire front of the structure. Pink and white roses added hints of color and made the greens look even more lush. We also threaded more vines around our stakes for aisle pieces, topped with arrangements of hydrangea and blush dahlias to match the color scheme.
We loved the finished look for this ceremony - talk about a wow factor!
We moved Tom's surprise arrangement to the placecard table as a nice accent piece for guests to admire. Rose heads, moss and fairy lights helped dress up Stephanie's placecard wooden place card holders and give a rustic, natural feel.
Stephanie provided these white lanterns, table numbers and glass jar candle holders for the tables. We added moss and rose heads to create the effect that they were spilling out of the lanterns, and touches of vines and waxflower helped really fill the space for a pretty centerpiece style.
What a pretty cake table! Of course we added vines to each tier of the cake, the perfect nod to the forest theme. A group of blush and white roses served as a cake topper, matching the toss bouquet. A wooden stump and personalized sign finished the look.
Congratulations, Stephanie and Tom!
