Vintage Garden Wedding


 Let me start by saying that Kari a/k/a bride is absolutely AMAZING!  Not only is she gorgeous but she is one of the kindest most genuine people you will ever meet.  I loved working with her because she understood the value of tiny details which made the creative process so much FUN!

During our consultation Kari shared her vision for a beautiful vintage garden wedding complete with lush peony, specialty linens and antique napkins, personal touches and a perfectly dressed table.  She even provided some of the great decor accents that were used with the centerpieces.  Pieces from our sterling silver collection were used to pull the entire look together.  


Rather than start with the table details I just had to share the amazing couple first!  

The dress was a beautiful Nicole Miller gown that looked as if it was designed specifically for Kari-simply stunning!



     





















Seriously didn't I tell you she was gorgeous and look at those eyes!  Julie Strating our local make-up celebrity did a gorgeous job accentuating Kari's already flawless features.





Everyone loves a man who isn't afraid to show his softer side.  David wore a khaki suit with a crisp white shirt and a stylish green pin striped tie.  Not only did he look dapper he was our comedic relief that day.  



 Sweet vintage handkerchiefs were used to wrap the stems for her bridesmaid bouquets.  Just another fabulous find by the bride. 


Kari spent hours surfing the web and antique stores for the perfect vintage brooch, it matched beautifully with her necklace.
























Couldn't resist sharing just a few more bouquet shots showcasing the brooch and white ostrich feathers.  I hope feathers stay in style for a long time because I'm absolutely in love with them.  You?  


 I'm so in love with the color of the bridesmaid dresses!  It was a cross between kiwi and kelly green, super cute!!!!  I'll have to ask Kari and get back to all of you on the actual color.  Seriously how fresh, flirty and fun!


Thanks to Jen of JK Photography we have this amazing collection of images to share with you.  I love how beautifully she brought out the vintage feel of this wedding through her photography.  I would also like extend a big "way to go" to Syd Design who helped create the lovely paper products.  And to the Pinnacle Center for being so accommodating in allowing us to get in early just so we could ensure the linens were pressed and dressed to perfection.

OMG Jen! Thank you for the wonderful blog feature - it is so nice to relive the day once again. David and I are so thankful for the hardwork that was put into our special day by you and the MDF staff. It wouldn't have been as stunning as it was without you. The vision was came to life for us that day - so thank you! And I hope feathers stay around forever because they were amazing - a perfect touch to my bouquet (that I am absolutely in love with:) ) First class all the way is the service that you provide. We are so honored that we had MDF for our special day and that we now know some amazing talented individuals. And what A Godsend Erin was to us. She helped us out in so many ways -she made the day a breeze!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts -
David & Kari Rawles
