Real Wedding | Intimate Lakeside Ceremony

Fay + Dan are celebrating their two week anniversary, and we couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter in their lives! They flew all the way from the UK {along with 8 of their closest friends and family members} to tie the knot at Cypress Grove, and today we’re reminiscing over their sweet details – Fay’s gorgeous, cascading pink peony bouquet {one of our fav flowers, btw} and the handmade cake toppers {the couple loves cuddly bunnies and has a few of their own back home}.

Shopping Guide {The Bridal Edition}

Planning a wedding is quite stressful – trust us, we know girl. Though coordinating the ceremony and reception may be the most important area of focus, shopping for the bride’s gown is undoubtedly the most exciting part! Many of our brides come to us bearing timeline questions, such as: “When should I purchase my veil and accessories?” Well, we’re here to break it all down for you:

10-12 months remaining
If you’re anything like us, your Pinterest boards are full of gown inspiration. Bring photos to your stylist at your shopping appointment so that everyone is on the same page in order to find the dream dress. If at all possible, we’d suggest limiting your entourage to two or three people. Bridal gowns are essentially custom-made, so you need to allow designers time to create and ship to you,

6-8 months remaining
Shop for your undergarments, veil, shoes, jewelry, and any other accessories. Your bridal salon very well may give you options and suggestions when you purchase your dress. It’s crucial to have these items before your first fitting! This way your seamstress can alter the dress appropriately around your accessories.

6-8 weeks remaining
Your dress should have arrived by this point, so it’s time to have the first fitting! Your undergarments are shoes will determine how your gown is altered to fit you perfectly. Once the initial adjustments are made, you may need to go in for a second fitting for smaller tweaks.

1-2 weeks remaining
Have your final fitting and pick up your dress. You may want to bring all your accessories {veil, jewelry, etc.} to see the complete look.

Real Wedding | Vintage Backyard Wedding

There’s just something about a backyard wedding that’s so special and unique. It also helps when your backyard looks like this one did with its beautiful spacious yard scattered with trees, perfectly aged wooden fence, big porch, and we can’t forget the pigs! {If you’re looking to add some real character to your wedding, pigs will definitely get the job done}.

Working with Amanda + Andrew was such a fun process. From the beginning, the bride knew what she wanted and we set out to make that dream a reality! She had her heart set on a rustic wedding and when we asked her what her color palette was, she responded with “burlap and lace.”

For the guest tables, we used our Farm Tables paired with our mismatched chairs. The {Guest} Who’s Here Vignette showcased our Tiger Wood secretary desk, Antoinette. We styled the space with a stack of vintage luggage, our antique typewriter and books. The cake was displayed on our sweet Victorian buffet, Victoria. With a little help from our small ladder Tucker, we displayed our mismatched dessert plates on and around the cake table. We just had to add in some lace and burlap with our custom fringe banner draped across the dresser.
