Fall Couples Shower

This weekend I had the pleasure of helping my wonderful neighbor with a Fall outdoors theme couples wedding shower.  The groom is an avid duck hunter, so in order to make him and the other guys feel comfortable, I included ducks into the design of the event starting with the invitation and carried throughout in small details. It was easy to incorporate the ducks into our design scheme of outdoors, fall colors and pumpkins.

Sweet Southern Wedding

What a sweet wedding!  This was a favorite project of mine, from the rustic burlap, lace and mason jars to the contemporary silver trees and vases, I loved every detail.  I worked with the bride to bring her vision of a "sweet, southern" backyard wedding with personal touches and a mix of casual and contemporary to life.  We went with a color scheme of silver, chartruese, tan and white.  I designed all of the florals to have a casual, just picked from the garden feel.  They were very budget friendly and helped in making the feeling of the event come to life.  We served a specialty drink, "The Real McCoy" during a short cocktail hour before the ceremony.  (The newlyweds last name is "McCoy") ;)

Dinner was served under a wooden arbor draped with vintage lace panels.  The buffet was draped in burlap for a casual feel, and food was served in silver and wood pieces for a mix of the elegant and casual.  I created a sweets bar out of a vintage cabinet.  Southern pies were served as well as three unique mini cakes and red velvet cupcakes.  For the drink station I used another vintage painted piece and we served drinks out of diy embellished mason jars.  What southern wedding would be complete without lemonade and sweet tea?

Derick and Lauren are a beautiful couple, inside and out.  I had a wonderful time collaborating with Lauren and her mother-in-law Carla on this special day.  I wish the happy couple a lifetime of happiness!
