sorry for the blog silence!! our 2011 has been super busy so far- full of rehearsal dinners and weddings that we simply cannot wait to share with you all!
we'll start by catching you up on a wedding we did last november with kate murphy. she is so talented and has a great eye, and her photos really convey the emotion and love at this sweet fall wedding at belle meade plantation.
the plantation was looking amazing in its full fall regalia:
anne and nate, the happy couple- aren't they adorable?!? and anne's bridal bouquet with a variety of flowers including hydrangeas, berries and scabiosa pods:
the ring bearer carried this pillow made of moss:
the programs were printed on a chocolate brown damask paper and hung on the back of the chairs for the ceremony with a loop of brown satin ribbon:
ceremony was held in the stables! we softened the doors with a bit of draping and wrought iron chandelier arrangements. love that space!
anne and her mom loved fall touches like these cinderella pumpkins that we glazed:
and lots of wheat in the center arrangement for the buffet
instead of a typical guest book, we printed "hankies" on paper with this vintage floral motif and guests each signed one:
the food was an assortment of mexican dishes (anne & nate's favorite kind of food)...so we decided to forego a traditional wedding cake and do anne's favorite tres leches cake ("three milks" in spanish). we did a cake table of four tres leches cakes on vintage glass cake stands. and we are here to tell you that it was delicious!!
and ribbon streamers were twirled by guests as the bride and groom made their exit at the end of the night.
