Every year, I fall head over heels for the details I meticulously design and create for my clients. From lush floral designs to delicately crafted confections, I love dreaming up every last detail and crafting them to perfection with my amazing creative partners. To us and to our lovely couples, the details matter because they create the perfect ambiance and guest experience. Why make ugly when you can make pretty?
First up in my recap from my 2015 soirees is this over the top, crazy gorgeous floral design from In Bloom. This piece was the perfect focal point as guests pulled up the long, winding drive way to the home of my clients (that also doubled as the wedding and reception location). I cannot wait to show you more details from Caroline and Chris’s wedding day!
One of my favorite parts of the LPW design experience is working with my amazing in-house graphic designer on personalized paper details. We wanted something classic but fun for Kristin and Ray and this natural white paper paired with a lavender monogram and patterned liner did the trick. It was the perfect precursor to a day full of beautiful blooms (like this Amy Lynne Originals bouquet) and timeless linens.
It is no secret that I am a sucker for some beautiful blooms. So when Just Priceless walked in with this beauty on Katie and Doug‘s wedding day, I’m pretty sure I squealed with excitement. The peonies, the veronica, the eucalyptus, the vines .. talk about heart eyes.
I absolutely loved dreaming up this chuppah design with Olivia for her wedding to Scott. Her dad and brother crafted the handmade chuppah while her mother sewed these beautiful sheer swiss dot drapes. The peony and elaeagnus tie backs by Farmer’s Wife pulled the whole vision together underneath the giant ceremony oak tree at Summerfield Farms. I am on pins and needles waiting to share this beauty of a day!
How often in your life do you get to enjoy a multi-course meal with a proper place setting, hand calligraphed place cards, lush centerpieces, and luxurious linen napkins? Most likely, the answer is not that often so what a treat for your guests to experience that on your wedding day! Megan and Elliott treated their guests to the ultimate dining experience under twinkling chandeliers before enjoying this delicious textured cake design with fresh blooms.
While I am a spring time, blush and bashful loving gal, I also adore fall events and the beautiful warm color palette they come with. We focused on clean, classic, and natural details for Sarah and Cedric’s event design and the way their head table came together shows that perfectly. The natural foliage, the crisp textured linen, and the pops of metallic were all so beautiful!! More to come from this sweet day soon!
Cream colored naked cakes and crisp apple strudels … these are a few of my favorite things. The dessert display we created with Sweet Josephine’s for Kathryn and Shawn was definitely a favorite. I am a firm believe you can never go wrong with assorted desserts with a beautiful cake at the center. That along with vintage touches, hand calligraphed pie tags, and fresh blooms really took this delectable display to the next level. I will have more to share from this vintage farm soiree soon! (P.S. Bonus points for anyone who appreciated my corny Sound of Music reference.)
One of my favorite details to love on is the grand exit of the bride and groom. We designed a classically beautiful day for Anna and Jack so what could be more fitting for their send off that traditional bird seed? I tucked the seed into translucent bags so the guests knew what they were tossing and added these sweet For the Love Birds tags. So much more to come from A+J’s elegant Winston-Salem wedding soon!
