Coelle & Chris are Married!

I finally got around to organizing my photos. I simply CANNOT believe there are so many real weddings that I never blogged here. Let’s do something to rectify that, ok?

Chris & Coelle were marred over three years ago, but their wedding was one of my absolute favorites of the 2012 wedding season. I’m going to share it with you this evening! With fabulous photos by Andrea Paradowski Photography it’s no surprise this wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!

Chris & Coelle were married in the fall but I loved that they decided to do bright shades of orange and yellow instead of a more traditional fall palette. This was our first time doing a wedding at O’Brien BarnΒ and it’s truly a lovely venue. I love a rustic Wisconsin barn wedding!

I love bouts and corsages – they are like tiny little pieces of art. Bright ranunculus pop against the gray neutrals.

Chris and Coelle put so much effort into the little details. A dessert table adorned with a homemade bunting? An apple basket full of programs? So cute!

A huge congrats to Chris and Coelle, and a big thank you to Andrea Paradowski for sharing such lovely photos with us.

Succulent Love

May 19, 2013

Wedding season is upon us. I couldn’t be happier that succulents are still one of this seasons favorites. I think they’re so gorgeous. Hailey’s bridesmaids bouquet above is a glorious example (photo by Kate Romenesko Photography). They are the perfect addition to a rustic wedding day. Are they a bit pricey? Yes. A little extra work with all the wiring? Yes. Worth every penny? YOU BET! Succulents add such a great texture and color to floral arrangements. And as a tiny accent in boutonnieres? So very sweet!

The handmade ring below features tiny succulents glued on an aged brass band. This ring was created as part of a succulent flower bar for a happy hour party! We provided all the supplies and helped guests make their own succulent ring to take home. It was a smashing success.
