Desiree & Joe, August 15, 2015 The Estate at Moraine Farm
Deisree and Joe were married at the beautiful Estate at Moraine Farm, which is a lovely, simple backdrop for any celebration. Desiree came to me with a color palette, blush and antique blue, and the idea that she wanted her wedding day to have a rustic but elegant feeling. From there, she really trusted me to bring that vision to life and I think it came together beautifully!
My favorite part of Desiree and Joe’s wedding day was definitely the ceremony. We used my custom birch arch, which fit her theme perfectly. I draped it with burlap, which, mixed with the colorful but elegant florals I installed on the arch was a gorgeous backdrop for their vows.
The bouquets were a soft and elegant mix of blue and blush which accented the simple blush bridesmaid dresses just perfectly. I used David Austin garden roses, berries, delphinium, spray roses, hydrangeas and my favorite, dusty miller.
I love the way the blue and blush tones looked together. With some color plaettes I really have to choose the right tones of flowers to make the vision come to life - this is one of those cases. The additions of the berries and dusty miller toned down the bright blue hydrangea in a really nice way. Some of the blush roses were mixed in with more taupe tones which gives the overall effect of a more muted palette, which was just perfect with the burlap and the natural setting of the Estate.
For the rest of the decor and on the tabletops, we used more burlap touches, but mixed them with mercury glass vases and ball jars and sequined runners on the table, which was a nice mix of rustic and glam, just as Desiree imagined!
