A simply elegant gown for a simply elegant bride.
A country girl at heart, Stacy chose a barn venue for part of the day's celebration.
The church was an important part of the day, the pastor, Stacy's father, is the pastor at the Atascadero Bible Church. Stacey grew up at this church, helping her dad with his sermons when she was just a little girl
The groom, Stephen, had recently become a firefighter, so the logs were a way to bring his passion to the ceremony. It's a big church sanctuary.
Log aisle markers were an economical way to decorate and we brought in flowers and candles to soften the aisle decorations
They came up with an unusual and totally cool way to involve their large wedding party. Each attendant carried a vase of water with flowers down the aisle (men had a mason jar with water-no flowers) that they emptied into a larger vase on the side of the altar. The girls kept their flowers and then the bride and groom combined thier individual vases into one during the ceremony. Sort of a extended unity candle idea but with water, and a great one I might add. Here they are at the ceremony, you can see the mix and match vintage grey and purple dressses that the attendants were able to personalize themselves, and wear again.
I love those bright warm tones with a splash of white to crisp up the design. A good mix of texture and some informal and elegant blooms where mixed for a fun but not too casual design. Lisianthus, safflower, feverfew, dahlia and aranda orchids.
and now for the party!
Burlap and log slices brought in that rustic charm, while the mercury containers brought in some elegance.
Thank you for sharing your day with us, we enjoyed serving you... Happy New Life Together!
