In our next post, we’ll highlight some details from their wedding.
Royal Wedding, The Bouquet
I love Kate’s bouquet for many reasons. I love that you can actually she her waist and the bouquet is small enough that it is the accent rather than the focal point. I am not a fan of a massive bouquet where you cannot even see the dress…or the bride. I attended a wedding once where the bride looked topless. Why? She carried the bouquet far too high (let your arms rest on your hip bones) but also it was too large for her size 0 frame.
- Lily-of-the-valley – Return of happiness
- Sweet William – Gallantry
- Hyacinth – Constancy of love
- Ivy: Fidelity; marriage; wedded love; friendship; affection
- Myrtle: the emblem of marriage; love
Kristen + Scott: The Details
As mentioned earlier this week, Kristen and Scott were recently featured in Brides Magazine. My first post highlighted Kristen and Scott’s ceremony. My last post showed their reception photos.
The flowers in Kristen’s jewelry were complemented by her beautiful Oscar de la Renta shoes.
I love all things paper, and I definitely appreciate a cohesive stationery suite. Here are their programs.
The bridal bouquet incorporated hydrangeas and orchids.
They used a book from the Art Institute as a guest book. It was fun for out of town guests to flip through the colorful pages about Chicago.
Their modern centerpieces included moss, orchids, carnations and succulents. Here is the arrangement on the head table.
These books from the Art Institute doubled as favors and escort cards. I did the calligraphy on the belly bands, which matched the invitations.
Decor included letters from Anthropologie and framed family photos.
This was such a fun wedding. Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day!
