This was one of the most special weddings I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved in. They say the devil is in the details, but it was the details of this wedding that really made it unique. Every detail was carefully thought out and executed to showcase the couples’ desire to have a cozy and personal event with those closest to them.
Aimee and Jon really wanted to pull of an elegant and organic vibe for their wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at outside at Alms Park. They chose to not tent the dining or dancing areas and while a risky move, it really paid off… it felt like a romantic candlelight dinner under the stars!
Speaking of candles, we incorporated over 300 votives and hurricanes to light the perimeter of the space (big thanks to Julie with Cincy Event Planning
for contributing to the candle collection and helping with all the setup!). As for escort cards, the couple found an old photo of each of their 85 guests and incorporated them into the individual cards. I can’t wait to see the pro shots to be able to give proper accolades for how fantastic and special every detail was! (Aimee and Jon chose the always FAB Tine Hofmann
as their photographer and I have no doubt that she captured to the love and effort in all the touches Aimee and Jon put together.)
The cake was a gift from the groom’s sister… it was seriously the cutest and prettiest cake I’ve ever seen! Very “Style Me Pretty
The centerpieces were a collection of vases with submerged greens and foliages with floating candles, river rocks, mood moss and succulents. The greens included Aspidistra Leaves, Spiral Eucalyptus, China Berries, Camelia Leaves, Bear Grass and Berzilia Berries. The table numbers were bronze house numbers and really fit the vibe so much better than a traditional tent card or paper table number.
For the bouquets, the theme was tiny flowers. Aimee gave me only a few criteria… nothing traditional – no roses, calla lilies, etc. – and small textural elements. Her favorite flower is Queen Anne’s Lace and incorporated that motif in the invitations and other stationery items. For the bridesmaids’ bouquets, I incorporated the Queen Anne’s Lace with Waxflower and Bouvardia and tied them with a champagne dupioni silk ribbon. The boutonnieres were a collection of berzilia berries, snow berries and seeded eucalyptus tied with velvet ribbon.
As for the bridal bouquet, it was all delicate and decadent blossoms. Her bouquet included a whopping 12 different types of flowers to achieve the textural look she wanted. Flowers include White and Green Ranunculus, White Cabbage Roses, White Sweet Peas, White and Green Helleborus, Phlox, Bouvardia, Star of Bethlehem, Scabiosa, Astilbe and Lily of the Valley. The handle was wrapped in vintage lace from her mother’s veil and champagne dupioni silk. A framed picture of her father (from etsy
) was hung with a piece of vintage blue satin ribbon. See what I mean about the attention to detail?!
Aimee and Jon, thank you so much for the chance to be involved in such a special day. I wish you both all the happiness you can handle and many, many years of blessings, joy and abundance.
