November 18th was not a particularly warm day in Evansville but I would describe this wedding that way. Peach accents and yellow foliage warmed our color palette, candles glowed in the evening, and the heaters in the tented reception made the evening very comfortable. But the mood was the warmest part of the event. When delivering flowers to the church, the pace was not hurried and rushed, as it sometimes is. The family, wedding party, and other vendors were all so friendly and easy to work with. When we went back at the end of the night, the guests were also kind and everyone seemed to be having a genuinely wonderful time. It was a perfect way to end our season. Thank you Carrie and Gonzolo for choosing us to be a small part of your day.
Now the details! The wedding ceremony was held at Neu Chapel with a reception at Mesker Park Zoo.
I’m predicting that peach will become one of the most popular colors for weddings in the next few years. These peach toned carnations were gorgeous and I loved how the pastel color contrasted with the rich purple stock. The white lisianthus tied into the white used other places in the reception. The bridesmaids wore navy and I was able to forage navy privet berries along with yellowed autumn foliage to tie the look together along with other accent flowers and foliages.
These boutonnieres may be my favorite that we have made! I love using berries and the mini pine cones worked perfectly. Pinecones were also used on the tables and cake at the reception. They were a perfect accent for a mid-November wedding as we were transitioning from fall to winter.
Decor at Neu Chapel was minimal. The church has such a simply beautiful look that there isn’t a need to over-do the decor. We created two altar arrangements that were then re-purposed at the reception and swags on every fourth pew.
The reception was at Mesker Park Zoo. It was a cold and windy day but the tent was warm and festive!
Tables were labeled with animal names which is such a fun touch for a reception at the zoo!
Tables were lined with greenery, small arrangements, pine cones, and candles that glowed when the evening began.
Congratulations Carrie and Gonzolo! We wish you all the best!
