Jacqueline & Daniel's Rustic Wedding

Rustic weddings are always so much fun for me to work on and Jacqueline and Dan's wedding was no exception. Jacqueline chose a soft pastel color palette of pink, light green, and white which was perfect for this July summer wedding. Jacqueline's bouquet was made up of soft colors and lots of texture including Asian lilies, lisianthus, waxflower, mini-hydrangea, and white freesia. It was not only beautiful, but had a wonderful scent as well.  Daniel wore a boutonniere of freesia.

We wanted to use more rustic looking flowers for the bridesmaids' bouquet so I used daisies, alstromeria, and hypericum berries. Daisies were worn on the groomsmen's lapels.

The couple used the venue's birch arch to which we added touches of Baby's Breath.

Since the ceremony was moved under the tent, the cocktail hour was moved inside. I used the mix of bottles and flowers at several places on the bar instead of on hi-tops.

A large arrangement of white, pink, and green flowers sat on the placecard table.  I love the tall green vase that I found!

Keeping in mind that rustic means not having "matchy matchy" centerpieces, Jacqueline decided to use four different types of arrangements spread throughout the dining area. Since I collect a lot of unique rustic type containers, Jacqueline had lots to choose from and bought out several types of my containers. First we used wooden "Garden" baskets filled with a mix of flowers.

The second type of centerpieces consisted of my rental rustic lanterns, a shape matching glass vase of flowers, and votive candles.

Jacqueline supplied the old books on which to seat our third type of centerpiece. These consisted of replica vintage metal measuring cups with votive candles.

Finally, Jacqueline chose to use my green metal double garden buckets on the remaining guest tables. These buckets could be used over and over again after the flowers are no longer fresh.

I think this wedding had so many interesting aspects to it and lots of wonderful rustic details. I don't have a photo, but we used jelly jars of flowers on the sweetheart table, too. What a pretty, pretty rustic gardeny wedding with lots to look at and savor. Thank you to Jacqueline and Daniel for allowing me to be a part of it. I thoroughly enjoyed working on your wedding. Congratulations!
