Intimate Wedding at the Elizabeth Gamble Gardens

Wedding season is in full swing and as we continually produce dreamy weddings for our couple, it's always such a treat to get photos back of weddings that we've worked on earlier this year.  I love this wedding that we're about to share with you, it was an intimate wedding for 48 guests that was inspired by English Gardens in the countryside.  X and T wanted to create a really intimate feel for their day that was tailored and polished, full of blushes and cremes accented by lace, golds and whimsy.  If you follow our work, you'd know that that is our exact aesthetic!  This is the inspiration board that we created for them:

English Countryside Wedding Inspiration

This wedding was truly a labor of love for us because we not only did full event planning, full design and custom stationery for this couple, we also did all of the floral design!  Special thanks to the incredibly talented Hannah Suh Photography for the photos, enjoy this intimate wedding celebration featured below!

The bride loved peonies and how perfect was it that the wedding was in May, which is prime peony season!

For the ceremony, we created a simple design to accent the already beautiful grounds of the Elizabeth Gamble Gardens.  Our team hand painted the ceremony sign and we did a simple and clean, draped ceremony front for the altar and had flower bunches with long ribbons lining the aisle.

For cocktail hour, guests were invited to find their names on a beautiful display of cards with lace accents hanging above a bed of soft and fluffy flowers.

The reception was held indoors and in true #cegwedding fashion, we gave them room a facelift with some drape to create a clean, blank palette to feature the reception design that was created for them.  We had two long dining tables with white vineyard chairs and velvet damask linens in white accented with blush pink chiffon runners for the table.  We adorned each table with lush, blush and creme blooms and accented each place setting with Gold Rimmed Chargers, Gold rimmed glassware and gold flatware.  The bride and groom loves Paris Baguette so we incorporated mini strawberry tarts with each guest's name on mini flags as place cards.  We created a lace inspired menu to accent the table settings and had candles galore to really give it a romantic and intimate vibe.  The result?  The dreamiest of settings.

Thank you again to X and T for entrusting us with planning your day and for letting us craft your English Countryside Garden inspired wedding!
