May 28, 2011 - Mandy and Jon's Wedding

Country Chic by the Lake!  This ultra feminine girl had a clear vision for her wedding to sweet Jon.  We were so privileged to play a small role in making the day special for these two families.  Mandy started with a really cool tan and white swirl fabric and added in turquoise accents.  The soft pink, coral, yellow and light blue flowers were used to make all of their decorations really pop.  The family spent almost a year collecting vintage jars and bottles - many of which were turquoise!  So cool.

I was so excited to get my hands on this light pink Astillbe for Mandy's bouquet -- it has been scarce this spring.  We combined Dahlias, Peonies, spray roses, Solidago, Billy Buttons and pink Hypericum berries with the Astillbe to create a lacy bouquet for Mandy.

Her attendants wore a dark latte brown dress and carried smaller versions of her bouquet.

Mandy brought an old vintage dresser and used it to welcome guests at the entrance to the garden.  We filled her "LOVE" mugs with soft flowers.

Wedding programs were held in wire plant baskets picked up by the mother of the bride -- soft flowers and ribbon finished the easy elegant look.

The ceremony was held in the Garden at Wolf Lakes.  A rustic wine barrel was used to hold communion for the ceremony.  Vintage turquoise jars were filled with soft flowers and hung down the isle.

Love was in the air and so were our bird houses!  We attached bright flowers and turquoise ribbons to these fun vintage looking bird cages and hung them under the pergola.

The ceremony area was filled with wire plant stands with lush florals and lots of bottles filled with romantic garden flowers.  Each table had a table number painted to wooden hearts and attached with twine.

The head table held "Mr. and Mrs." signs along with a wooden "Love"...a perfect place for the new couple to share their first meal as Mr. and Mrs. Jon Kottman!

Over the wedding party we hung large monogram letters created and designed by the bride!  So cute...
