Candace and Matthew had a gorgeous wedding at Stevenson Ridge this May! It was also featured on Southern Weddings this week! I absolutely adored Candace! She knew she liked fluffy, soft, peach, white and pale pink florals – but she was very trusting that I’d understand her style of the wedding and translate her inspiration images into something beautiful! Thank you for trusting me Candace!
Thankfully May is prime peony season! I love when brides love the seasonal blooms for their wedding month! It makes for gorgeous fluffy flowers! Her bouquet had Peach ‘Juliet’ Garden Roses, Faith Roses, and Pink Sarah Peonies – wrapped in a piece from her grandmother’s wedding gown.SO FLUFFY!!! I just love a fluffy bouquet! Doesn’t it just make your heart happy?! :)To bring in the rustic vibe for the guys, the groom and groomsmen wore succulent boutonnieres (with seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus wrapped in bind wire)Simple bouquets of babies breath and burlap down the aisle to fit the country-rustic vibe
….I just loved the design chosen for the pergola! Candace found an image on Pinterest of jewels intertwined with the florals, and I thought this would be super fun to have the glamour vibe brought in this way to contrast with the country-rustic look! Coral Charm and Pink Sarah Peonies, Faith and Osiana Roses, White Hydrangeas and silver dollar eucalytpus. I always recommend the bride provide some sheer curtain panels and a rod for hanging on any structure — it looks gorgeous and softens the space!Er.mah.gersh. There are no words for this overload of cuteness!!
Candace had this adorable vintage cart that we made a sweet little garland for to jazz up this little princess’ entry ride!Married!!I just loved her centerpieces!! Soft, fluffy, pretty :)You can’t see it fully here, but she had these adorable bird toppers she got on Etsy that said ‘I do’ and ‘Me too’ :D
Congratulations you two!! :D
