Rustic French ~ A Nature Museum Wedding

by Natalie

As I sit here listening to Edith Piaf (writing inspiration galore) I am bursting with excitement to bring you the magnifique details of our wedding this past Saturday.  One part French, one part rustic, 2 parts  nature-inspired, and two sprinkles of sweet, this wedding was packed with lovey goodness.

I wish I could bottle scents in a blog post because these bouquets were straight from the heavens above, exuding pure and intoxicating garden rose, light and relaxing lavender, and spicy-sweet stock.

The bridesmaids carried more colorful bouquets tied with textural twine in un petit bow.

From the groom’s ivory dahlia and lavender boutonniere to the groomsmen and usher golden craspedia, spray rose, and fern boutonnieres, each lapel of the bridal party was dotted by a dash of charm.

Guests were greeted by a tall birch wrapped vase holding hydrangea, craspedia, and hanging votives and they were directed to the evening’s events by our adorable hand-painted sign post.

Guests flocked to their little bird place cards hanging from our lovely birch pole display.

Dinner tables were topped by sweet collections of summer blooms in two varying designs, using a mason jar and candle collection and alternating tables of lantern lit, birch boxed gardens.

Our hand-painted table numbers were tied on to mason jars and tucked into the mossy, ferny foliage, perfectly complimenting the natural décor without distracting from the centerpieces.

We followed suit with the sweetest sweet heart table ever, going straight to heart city with their table number and coordinating bride and groom signs.  I had a total blast painting these cute little accents.

I like to think everyone there could feel all the love we put into the flowers and décor which we created with extra-special TLC for this ultra-personalized wedding.

We had such a great time, as always,  working with Mary at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and want to especially thank the fun-loving Kelly from Clementine Custom Events for asking us to be a part of this enchanted evening.

We wish these two lovebirds butterfly kisses for years to come!
