I knew I wanted to work with Stephanie from our initial consultation. Her ideas were so unique, fun, and well-coordinated. I love a themed event, so this one was right up our alley.
We incorporated her subtle bird theme into her floral arrangements by using twisted curly willow in all her arrangements. For her bridesmaid bouquets, we twisted “nests” of curly willow and used interesting, textural florals with highly saturated greens to “pop” against the neutral dresses. And it worked.
We also collaborated on her centerpieces and I love how they turned out. Stephanie designed large sqaures of patterned fabric that set the stage for a unique mix of cracked pot arrangements, apothecary jars, bells jars, mercury glass votives, and a block-font table number sat on. Each centerpiece was a different variation of this mix. Bell jars held nests with robin’s eggs and moss.
Audrey Hannah Photo photographed the wedding and did a stellar job as usual. I adore her work, but always appreciate her ability to pose the perfect shot and capture details beautifully. Check out her blog post on the same wedding here.

The Bridal Bouquet was a rounded, hand-tied bouquet of white ranunculus with a twisted curly willow wreath and star of Bethlehem border.
Bridesmaid Bouquets were hand-tied bouquets of twisted curly willow wreaths, green hydrangea, green roses, scabiosa pods, white scabiosa flowers, green hypericum berries, white veronica, green cymbidium orchids, and green hanging amaranthus. We hand-tied their bouquets in strips of patterned fabrics.
The Groomsmen Boutonnieres were made of the eye of a peacock feather, twisted curly willow pieces, and green cymbidium orchids.
The Groom’s Boutonniere was made of white ranunculus, star of bethlehem, and twisted curly willow pieces to match the bridal bouquet.
For Stephanie’s Aisle, we used an eclectic mix of mismatched bird cages and a mixture of large and tall cracked Anthropologie pot arrangements. I loved how it turned out. Best of all, we were able to re-purpose all the arrangements after the ceremony to be centerpieces.
Best response to a Groom seeing his Bride…EVER!
Escort Cards were lined up on a vintage door with ribbon clotheslines running across.
