Scenes from a May Farm Wedding

The sun is shining and we have finished setting up another Farm Wedding in Hopewell so we had to share a few of the unique elements that both we and the bridal family created! Below is a pretty close up of Bride Brittany's Bridal Bouquets (say that 10 times fast). Created using cut succulent plants, cream stock, lavender spray roses, queen anne's lace, purple waxflower and a very pale lavender hydrangea.  The driveway leading to the farm is long so we placed hanging mason jars of flowers lining  ~ these even have a light in the bottom to glow as guests leave in the evening!   The family really got creative and hung a few ladders from the garage ceiling with lanterns! This must have looked amazing when the light came down!  Here's something fun! The farm ordered a few bales of hay that were 4 feet tall and we created huge letters made from fresh moss in honor of the bride and groom! After the wedding , the hay will feed to horses!  Once inside under the tent

Fresh Spring Wedding Bouquet

Natural and rustic is the theme of this bouquet for our Bride Alaina for her wedding at the Lambertville Inn. Locally grown lilacs, fever few daisies, succulents, blue thistle, silvery brunia and lime green buplerium make for a very textured, fresh picked bouquet.  Formal satin ribbon would not have gone with this bouquet so the stems were wrapped in a natural twine keeping with the sophisticated rustic theme of the bouquet.  Love the mini succulents we added to the bouquet, don't you?

Winery Wedding

How fun to have a wedding in a Winery.... In New Jersey no less. Yes, we grow grapes and make wine in New Jersey and what a wonderful spot for a wedding in May. The perfect location, the perfect couple and the perfect weather! Here's a quick and fun video. Spring Peony, Hydrangeas, Wheatgrass, Burlap, Twine and Curly Willow all take center state in this Elegant but Rustic Wedding.

Rustic Centerpiece Idea

 Looking for centerpiece ideas with a rustic flair? How about this idea from last weekends wedding at an elegant winery? The bride provided to us these cool boxes and we lined them with burlap to cover the mason jars that housed the loose and airy wildflowers that filled the boxes. Affordable and quite large, these floral arrangements took advantage of seasonal flowers and really looked full and lush.  The Escort Card table display used river pebbles and wheat grass with wine corks as the escort card holders.  Wine boxes held the grasses for a little more visual appeal and once the table was fully dressed with branched arrangements and floating candle holders, it truly was a show piece that greeted Rebecca and Patrick guests to the Vineyard. No two centerpieces matched which allowed us to use some expensive flowers like the Dutch Astilbe and Hydrangeas in this piece along with the more modestly priced Margarite daises and thistle.

Katie's Wedding at Holly Hedge

 It rained and it rained but that did not stop our team from creating a pretty setting at the Holly Hedge Barn for Katie and Derrick's Wedding this weekend. Two large Eugenia Topiary frame the fire place perfectly. This photo is deceiving as the were over 6 feet tall! Now that's a large fireplace. The flowers up in the nook really soften the feel of all the stone and add a pop of her peach and pink floral tones to the room.  The tables were decorated with a burlap square and a mixture of drinking bottles, both provided by the bride. We add some pops of color with fresh Flowers such as spray roses, snapdragons, waxflowers, Queen Ann's lace, solidago and hypericum berries.  Each table was named after an animal. A sweet touch and added to the home down country farm, rustic feel. Nothing to matchie, match here. Keeping the guest guessing at every turn. :o)  The escort cards were each nestled inside a "wheel" of wheat grass lined with burlap ribbon. The K &
