Princess & Benjamin - Real Wedding

This intimate wedding fit for a Princess took place at The Club at Carlton Woods. Photo credits to Jonathan Ivy Photography.
Outdoor ceremony was set up on the back lawn at the Nicklaus Clubhouse. The aisle started at the base of the stairs, flanked on each side by two tall white arrangements raised on pedestals leading down to our garden arch which was decorated with greenery and babies breath.
The bride carried a petite Princess Kate style bouquet of ranunculas, orchids, miniature garden roses and babies breath.
The reception was in the elegant Carlton Room which was draped in white fabric for a clean, elegant, ethereal look. Greenery garland surrounded the table which included white hydrangea, roses and babies breath. Crystal and candlelight were in abundance with gold accents in the chargers, place card holders and plates.
The three tier buttercream cake by Lisa at Kiss the Cook Cakes, was decorated with ranunculas, orchids, miniature garden roses and babies breath around the base.

Elizabeth & Ryan - Real Wedding

Elizabeth and Ryan tied the knot at the beautiful Big Sky Barn venue in Montgomery.
We have the thank our friend Melanie Hall, Melonhead Photography for the gorgeous photos.
Elizabeth's handtied bouquet in shades of pink and ivory had hydrangea, roses and miniature garden roses. Ryan's boutonniere composed of a pink rose, ivory miniature garden rose, silver brunia and mixed greenery.
The ceremony took place in The Big Sky Barn chapel where we placed two arrangements of hydrangea, roses and greenery on either side of the cross which were later moved to the fireplace mantle following the ceremony.
Bridal party photos were taken both inside and out, showing off the various areas at the Big Sky Barn! What a fun photo inside the chapel!!
Reception took place inside the beautiful barn where tables were decorated with a variety of different lanterns that we added floral accents to, along with wooden boxes that the bride provided filled with bridal flowers.
We decorated the three tier cake with groupings of pink, blush and ivory roses and greenery accents.
Lastly, a couple of gorgeous shots of the newly married couple. Congratulations Elizabeth and Ryan!

Hannah & Evan - Real Wedding

What a fun couple! Hannah and Evan didn't let a little rain spoil their day!! Love the vibrant colors Hannah chose for her flowers -  the fuschia & coral just popped against the blush and green shades. The combination of Juliette garden roses, Italian ranuculas, dahlias, stock, succulents and hypericum berries created this stunning bouquet. Evan looked dapper with his gold bow tie - his boutonniere, a coral rose and mini succulent.
The bridesmaid's were so cute in their knee length gold dress and joined the bride along with two houseparty dressed in fuchsia and two sweet flowergirls, outside for a few photos under clear umbrellas.
Hannah and Evan really wanted an outdoor wedding on the back lawn at The Club at Carlton Woods, but the weather just didn't cooperate and the ceremony was moved indoors. The aisle was decorated with our gold lanterns with floral accent and bouquet of flowers on alternating chairs.
The lanterns were then moved through to the reception and used on half the tables with floral centerpieces in gold mercury glass cubes on the other half.
We placed a garland of mixed greenery and bridal flowers across the fireplace mantle behind the sweetheart table. The gorgeous gold and cream cake by Cakes by Gina was accented with garden roses, ranunculas, miniature garden roses and hypericum berries.
