Sarah & Mac - NASCAR? Yes, NASCAR!

The groom wore red high top sneakers! That should tell you what a fun couple Sarah and Mac are. Their wedding took place at the lovely Duportail House in Chesterbrook. Sarah and her mom were great to work with and very involved in the personalized details of the wedding. Sarah chose a basic color palette of white, blue, and green with a blast of color from her NASCAR additions.

Sarah carried a bouquet of beautiful white peonies and wore a white gardenia in her hair. She looked gorgeous! Mac's boutonniere was made up of stephanotis.

Sarah's bridesmaid carried a bouquet of mixed colored flowers with grass loops. The groomsmen wore boutonnieres of white spray roses.

Since Sarah and Mac are huge NASCAR fans, we decided to add a bit of whimsy to the cocktail hour. Sarah wrapped vases with nylon roping in the colors of their favorite drivers. I added checkered ribbon - that her mom found - and gerber daisies to each vase. Sarah provided the race cars for another fun touch to the cocktail tables.

I also added automotive funnels - with sprouting spider mums, to the hors d'oeuvres table.

One nice touch that Sara included was a vase full of blue, white, and green carnations. Guests filled out tags with well wishes and then hung them from the stems of the carnations.

There are several mantles at Duportail House. On one I put cut glass vases to hold bouquets. On the other, where there was already an assortment of antique glass and pottery, I added a variety of small vases with assorted flowers.
On the table where Sarah and Mac sat, I filled a crystal bowl belonging to Sarah's mom with blue hydrangea and green hypericum berries.

I filled my white wire baskets with moss and an array of flowers including Love in the Mist, Bells of Ireland, alstromeria, and hypericum berries. These arrangements were placed on the guest tables and popped nicely against the blue tablecloths. I wish the two of you all the best!
