A Bohemian Affair at the Rodale Institute
With tools like social media and Pinterest (on top of the endless bridal magazines and websites), many of our clients become so overwhelmed with the selection of color schemes and themes that it's hard for them to narrow down their style. We often find ourselves sorting through layers of options to discover what will truly fit them best to make their wedding day one that fully represents them.
With art director bride, Kaitlyn, there was no need to guide through the design process. This was a woman who knew what she wanted, and there was no mistaking her gorgeous bohemian bridal style. This was our first event at the Rodale Institute, and we're thrilled it was for an event that was made of such a high quality team of vendors.
With Love and Embers Photography hit it out of the park with these images. If you scroll through their website, you'll see that they take their work outside of just weddings and events, and truly capture the daily life and activity of humanity, with a few stunning travel landscapes thrown in just to really make your jaw drop. Reading their "About Me" section leaves you with an understanding that their work goes beyond their talent and is truly is the passion of their souls. We are thankful that our work has lead us to cross paths, and look forward to working with them again.
Kaitlyn's bouquet was a stunner, even by our standards. Larger-than-life peonies and poppies were the obvious focal points, but their delicate petals keep them from being overwhelming. Mixed greenery created lushness, while berries and astilbe added an interesting draping effect. Of course, it can't be a bohemian wedding without cascading ribbons!
The Rodale Institute is actually an experimental farm. It was founded on the motivation to be the "epicenter of the organic movement." Their agricultural roots had us interested, and then beautiful portraits like this in their greenhouse had us head-over-heels in love for this unique venue selection.
Kaitlyn found her wedding dress at BHLDN, and we are blown away by the intricate details of the fabric. It seems that every time we look again, we find something new and intriguing on this gown. Her tasseled locks and flawless make-up were perfected by Onlo Beauty. For our part, we gave Adrian bout of white and mint colored bout to go with his floral (!!) tie.
The couple said their vows under an arch of their own creation, which we decorated with a corner piece of draping vines, peonies and ranunculus.
A lot of the couple's floral selections revolved around the request for potted plants and herbs, which was very fitting given their surroundings. Delicate glass bud vases were filled with more colorful blooms to dress up the occasion as well. Fox and Finch Vintage Rentals really brought the reception space to life with the help and guidance of the wedding planners, Rabbit Rabbit Crew.
Our heart filled congratulations to the happy couple! XOXO
