Joy and Sean had the perfect setting for their wedding this past Saturday. The fall air was cool and crisp and the changing leaves on the trees next to the lake at the New Harmony Inn framed their ceremony spot. Their flower palette of burgundies, oranges, and yellows echoed the seasonal accents around us.
The father of the bride built the ceremony backdrop. The wood he used had the perfect amount of rustic charm. I added two sprays of flowers to lend a little bit of formality and bring their colors into the ceremony space.
The bride carried a colorful fall bouquet featuring textural protea and kangaroo paw flowers, as well as seasonal dahlias, solidago, and locally sourced dried flowers.
Bridesmaids had a choice between floral crowns or hair combs. Both crowns and combs lend a boho feel, especially when they can be mixed and matched.
Of course there were boutonnieres and corsages, too!
The reception was held in the New Harmony Conference Center.
The blank slate with windows looking out over the area was a great backdrop for simple table decor.
Wood log slices, also made by the father of the bride, were added to all tables. Flowers placed in small, vintage bottles were added to some of the tables along with greenery and candles.
Other tables just had greenery and candles with the log slices. The couple added small bags with handmade soap to each setting, as well. An elegant but rustic theme with most definitely felt.
Sometimes, simple is all that is needed. This fit perfectly in the serene room with the simplicity of the white tablecloths and chair covers.
Congratulations, Joy and Sean! Thank you for letting me play a small part in your wedding. I wish you both the best!
