This incredible, sweet, blush, vineyard wedding will take your breath away over and over again. Michelle Cross Photography captured every moment and every ray of light just as it was to create this beautiful collection of memories.
When I first met Katie in a local coffee shop, I was immediately drawn to her honest soul, sweet personality, and adorable style. After talking through her wish list, style preferences and budget, we created a dreamy inspiration board rich with foliage & precious blush blooms, gushing with elegant style. This is the result!
Katie's bridesmaids carried hand tied bouquets of cafe au lait dahilas, white lisianthus, blush spray roses, Juliet garden roses, peach stock (gosh i love that sweet smell) veronica, queen anne's lace, seeded eucalyptus and olive greens. If I had to pick an element that inspired me most in my designs, it would most definitely be texture. I love how all of the pieces come together to compliment each other and create something even more beautiful.
Katie was all about the details. She put so much heart and thought into every piece of her wedding day. Check out this amazing box of sentimental gifts for her handsome groom.
Zenith Vineyard is one of my absolute favorite local venues. The ballroom, staircase and lawn are beautiful enough, but then you add the backdrop of the vineyard and surrounding hills, and not much else can beat it. I love the beauty of these green grapes surrounding such lovely ladies.
First looks get me every time. I love the mixture of nerves, anticipation, tenderness and joy.
Katie's bridal bouquet boasted an incredible assortment of cream, peach and blush garden roses, with textural touches of spray roses, clematis vine, eucalyptus seeds, scabiosa blossoms and queen anne's lace.
We kept the boutonnières classy and simple, with a double bloom combination of blush ranunculus and spray roses, eucalyptus and olive greens.
Flower crowns were such a hit this season, and these girls rocked this olive brach design.
Pinterest for the win! Ever since I first saw this flower box concept a few years ago, I longed to use this inspiration. When I saw it pinned to Katie's wedding board I knew it was the right event! We flanked the beautiful staircase with these crates at the bottom, & the wine barrel designs at the top. Flowers everywhere . . . this was so, my kind of party!
It was a warm summer day, and the light was shining on this lovely wedding ceremony.
With a backdrop like this, we had to bring the natural beauty into the ballroom. During cocktail hour we repurposed Katie and Scott's arbor garlands, flower spray and chair swags into a lovely mantle piece above the fireplace. It was a perfect compliment to the 24+ ft garland that extended down the head table.
English styled garden centerpieces and rosemary plating details adorned each table, tiny succulent planters exclaiming "let love GROW" were given to each guest, and this epic cake design by Sara at Country Cake Shop was complimented with a drawer full of blooms!
Congratulations Katie & Scott! May your sweet love continue to grow indeed!
