Kerith & Charles’ Wedding at The Old Lantern

Kerith and Charles were wed on Saturday at The Old Lantern in Charlotte, VT.  Kerith is one of those brides who took DIY to another level when she carved her guests’ names into river rocks to serve as place cards and even took a wood-burning class in order to make her own table numbers!  She simply did not mess around when it came to the personal touches.  We added a single stem of either freesia, lisianthus, dianthus, hypericum berries, scabiosa or agronis to each place setting which proudly displayed menus printed on balsa wood (guess who made them!…yep, the bride!) tucked in the napkins.  They were simply too cute.  Great work on the details and congratulations to you both!!!

The bride’s bouquet included green cymbidium orchids, white roses, green mini-hydrangea, purple lisianthus, dark burgundy dahlias, scabiosa, white nigella, freesia, purple tulips  and agronis accents.  The stems were tied with a band of purple silk dupioni ribbon.

The maid of honor and bridesmaids’ bouquets included hydrangea, dahlias, roses, tulips, lisianthus, green dianthus, nigella, hypericum berries and scabiosa with agronis.

Here are those rocks I told you about…

A sap bucket full of blooms helps to frame the ceremony on the porch!

And here are the menus the bride printed herself!!!

This was one of the nicest wedding quilt “guest books” I have seen so far.  By the way, how cute are the little cow creamers as favors?  I think they are adorable!  The Vermont Teddy Bear bride & groom were appropriately saving their seats for the reception!

    Kerith just informed me that the menus were actually printed on maple veneer!
