A misnomer that needs to be abolished, is that a country wedding can only be done one way. The beauty to today's utterly dreamy bohemian wedding is that it is all about elevating a country affair. Inspired by a romantic bohemian wedding with whimsical influences, a team of Pacific Northwest wedding pros set off to create a wedding of polish and sophistication. Dairyland serves as the perfect backdrop, a locale injecting just the right rustic flavor with the platform for elevated style. Utilizing a wide range of materials and textures, the team created experiences throughout the property with the keystone piece being an incredibly cool triangle backdrop. No bohemian wedding would be complete without a world of dripping greens, something From the Ground Up Floral delivered in spades from the asymetrical swag detailing in the ceremony decor to the gorgeous hand-tied bouquet. This styled shoot is a sweet love song to how a setting is just a setting, you can make it all be exactly what you want it to be.
As I write this post, the irony isnt lost on me. When Texas wedding photographer Angela King Photo sent this dreamy styled shoot my way some months ago, I pleaded to let me hold it back with the intention of featuring it right as spring was truly coming to life. Meanwhile, here in the northeast anyway, we're on our 5/6th snow in a month.... its April, people, April. So instead, I now share this with you tied up in wanderlust for a warmer, sweeter time, living vicariously through Angela's images. I'm a sucker for flowers, this a known fact, and easily one of the key pieces that drew me to this Texas wedding. A bevvy of blooms dance through each vignette, be it the drippy garland for portraits, the petite bridal floral crown, or the lush multiple piece tablescape. A floral roll call if you will of amaranthus, blue cornflower, peach stock, and succulents, form the garland of the beautiful site for a ceremony and couple’s portraits. The bride’s bouquet is a mix of jasmine vine, silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus, blue delphinium...
Fantasy weddings can be a truly magical thing. In the wrong hands, a bit of a cacophony to the eyes at times. In the right hands, a beautiful source of inspiration. This styled Wonderland wedding is everything right about pulling from a storybook world. Taking a cue from simple details like colors & decor, the skilled wedding pros created an elevated take to the Wonderland wedding. Set at Wonderland In The Woods, wedding photographer Sabrina Hall Photography, captured each little detail that makes this a true beauty, all starting with an incredible dreamy blue wedding dress from Blanc de Blanc! By focusing on just one aspect of the story, the team pulled together a thoughtful tablescape of tea cups, bell jar installations, and blue glassware from Borrow Rentals that was all kinds of perfection. Florist Nikki’s Perfect Petal Designs, inspired by Alice's garden surroundings, created gorgeous floral arrangements that had structure yet featured loose tendrils giving a slightly reclaimed by nature feel. The end result is a take on a Wonderland wedding that is refined & elegant yet wonderfully magical!

Fun fact, my daughter was born in Sleepy Hollow New York! This fun little relationship has reignited my excitment for Halloween, specifically the jovial lighthearted side to the holiday. My husband and I agreed that each year we would show her the passion and delightful spirit that surrounds Halloween. Hosting a Halloween dinner party falls perfectly inline with that! Molly Mckinley Designs teamed up with the amazing Rustic White Photography at the The Foundry at Puritan Mill to create a vibrant Halloween dinner party that plays on the chic whimsical side of things. The result is a colorful tablescape dotted with big bold blooms, shapely gourds, towering black candles and an elegant modern place setting. Food is another wonderful opportunity to not just create a epicurean experience that delights, but to add gorgeous scenery to any event like the scrumptious Butternut Squash Hummus.
