On January 2nd, we are still in the holiday spirit. Our goal for this wedding was to bring touches of holiday without it feeling too much like Christmas. As usual, the design begins with the bridal bouquet. It is, most likely, the most photographed flower arrangement at a wedding–probably in your life! This bouquet was created with red roses and spray roses, hypericum berries, burgundy safari sunset, the largest green antique hydrangea we have ever seen, seeded eucalyptus, tree fern, and for a winter feel–magnolia and cedar.
Some brides choose to have smaller versions of their bouquet for their bridesmaids. Here, we used the same greenery for a coordinated but different look.
Boutonnieres and corsages pull the red flowers and berries together with the greenery. The gold accent color was carried through in the ribbon.
The ceremony was held at the Vanderburgh County Courthouse. The groom is an architect and wanted to be married in a building with architectural significance. This venue certainly fits that criteria!
A small ceremony with family and close friends was held in the court room. Swags decorate the posts leading to the ceremony area and the first two pews. Just a small touch was needed for such a beautiful room.
The reception was held at the Granary in New Harmony–one of our favorite venues in the area.
Swags matching those at the ceremony adorned the columns at the entry.
Guests entered the main level to a fun escort card activity and an arrangement at the corner of the table. We always suggest an arrangement at the entry. It is a great way to set the tone for your style and colors.
A small arrangement at the bar during cocktail hour is another great touch.
We are happy to leave greenery and flowers for the caterer, as we did here.
The bride and groom had placed family wedding photos on the stairway leading up the stairs. We added cedar, magnolia, hypericum berries, pine cones, and pomegranates to the vignette.
Vintage winter elegance!
Tables were filled with vintage items collected by the bride as well as greenery, berries, pine cones, pomegranates, bud vases with roses, and candles.
Each table was unique.
The head table was set in an L-shaped arrangement with items decorating the ends.
A sweetheart table for the bride and groom sat at the center of the head table.
Window sills were also decorated with photos, greenery, pine cones, pomegranates, and bud vases with roses.
Congratulations Kaitlin and Darren!
