Good morning, everyone. I have attended a playful woodsy wedding as bridesmaid last weekend. It is hold in a backyard, filled with fresh hydrangeas, colorful paper cranes, and a whole lot of personality. I would be love to share my bridesmaid dress with you as and you know I love it when someone else finds her inspiration from me. You can see every last detail right here in the gallery.
Emilia enlisted the help of her amazing family and put special DIY touches in creating all the details that came together in such a strong way. The wedding was held at her grandparent’s house as the house and its surrounding had meant so much to her and she had fond memories of spending her childhood there. The ceremony took place in an open area off from the long tree-lined driveway and was decorated with hanging parasols. The twin flower girl’s skirts were made from an old prom dress from the maid of honor, and the groom’s nephew was wheeled down the aisle in a personalized radio flyer wagon.
Emilia and Nicholas had an amazing spread of cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. The cupcakes were featured on multiple glass and chandelier platters with purple tulle behind. The favors were personalized tote bag featuring a print of a hydrangea along with a quote from Ghandi, which was also on their wedding programs.
Emilia is the bride. I actually knew her from high school when we were paired up together for a school assignment, and was honored that she selected me as her bridesmaid 10 years later. From the day we met up over a year before the wedding date she had everything very neatly organized in a binder with color swatches, photos and blog posts. Purple and hydrangeas were the inspiration for the day and the detail were set around that theme. Hope you can enjoy the wedding photos like me.
