Stephanie and Frank - Vintage Lace and Love at Manor House

If I was still teaching I would have to give Stephanie an A+ on the details she worked on for her wedding. She herself wrapped lace around all of her vases so nicely! Every vase she wrapped was done so tightly that they looked like they were decoupaged on! She did a terrific job! As you can see by the pictures, Stephanie's color palette was white, pale green,  and soft pink which lent itself to using lace for a beautiful vintage feel.

Stephanie's bouquet was made up of pink peonies, white waxflower, and dusty miller. I wrapped the stems in white satin ribbon with an overlay of lace. Frank wore a white lisianthus boutonniere.

Bridesmaids carried bouquets similar to Stephinie's but with white football mums (in lieu of the more expensive peonies) combined with pink lisianthus and dusty miller. They were wrapped similar to Stephanie's bouquet. Pink lisianthus boutonnieres were worn by the groomsmen.

It was very windy outside that day so I wasn't able to set up the ceremony flowers because I was there early. I sat an arrangement of pink and white flowers in an old white ceramic pitcher - pictured above - that I rent out on an old table provided by Stephanie. This was to be part of a grouping with a mason jar of flowers and a mason jar candle sitting on a lacy table cloth.  Stephanie also provided her own Shepherd's hooks and hanging mason jars which I filled with Baby's Breath to go down the aisle.  If she hasn't already done so, these are for sale.  If you're interested, please contact me.

Greeting guests on the entry table was a grouping of programs, photos, and a small flower arrangement on top of an old candlestick that I spray painted silver.

A trio of vintage inspired vases sat next to the birdcage that Stephanie used to collect her envelopes.

Mantles in the old farmhouse were decorated with more framed photos and small vintage vases of flowers.

Half of the guest table centerpieces were glass cylinders wrapped by Stephanie and filled with hydrangea, lisianthus, dusty miller, and asters.

On the rest of the guest tables I used two vintage inspired vases of flowers combined with a glass candle cylinder wrapped in lace by Stephanie. Every one of these tables used slightly different vases.

Only the childrens'  table was different from the others.  Stephanie added her own magic to this one.

Again I used three small vases of flowers on the Mr. & Mrs. sweetheart table to complete the vintage theme.

I really enjoyed working with Stephanie on her wedding. She worked hard and it showed in every little item she provided for her special day.  I wish this family many happy and wonderful years together.  Congratulations!
