Who doesn’t love small town charm? Who says a barn wedding should be rustic? We set out to bring a big dose of elegance to this small town beauty, The Wheeler House. The home itself is a Southern bride’s dream with it’s porch, complete with a swing, shutters and even guest cottages and arbor surrounded with stately trees. The barn is breathtaking with its dramatic chandelier, stone fireplace and billowing draping. Some brides can only envision a certain style because they can’t think “outside the barn”, but with a dose of sparkle, exquisite blooms and some dreamy details this setting was ethereal.
Some of our favorite details of the day include the bridal bouquet that included romantic peonies, tulips, lisianthus, antique hydrangea, Silver Brunia, orchids and layers of dimensional greens tied with silk ribbons. This sweet groom strolled across the porch to present her with her bouquet. They even took the time to enjoy the rocking chairs and swing, and even an intimate walk through the woods. The blooms from her “floral signature” were translated into her table designs with mixed metals and shimmering glass in the vessels. One way to bring height in the room is a simple gathering of blooms of the day in a towering cloche. The bride and groom were seated at Miss Milly’s farm table that was framed by the spilling garden softening the fireplace. Soft seating was also included for the couple for a bit of contrast in the room, as well as comfortable way to enjoy the toasts.
Let them eat cake! and all your other favorite desserts. Dessert tables are such a great way to bring a bit more of the couple’s personality into the celebration. Who can pick just one? Love when they have a great piece of furniture to be showcased on. Other architectural pieces, such as an iron gate anchored the seating assignments. An incredible entrance was created for the bride with some amazing doors dripping in lush blooms and trailing greens. www.HollandDazeWeddings.com
