Our 2012 wedding season is off to a later-than-usual start since I took a few months off to adjust to our new life with our son, John, but we kicked it off on June 30th at The Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms for Lauren and Steve’s wedding. The style was both eclectic and vintage inspired with a gardeny feeling to keep in step with the season and beautiful location.
The bride carried a bouquet of white peonies, dahlias, roses, hydrangea, lisianthus and scabiosa with accents of ornamental kale, trachellium, fresh mint and ranunculus.
Here’s another shot of the bride’s bouquet. I adore this color combination.
Kale is paired with roses, hydrangea, freesia and scabiosa for her attendants’ bouquets.
You can’t forget a little clutch bouquet for mom!
Boutonnieres that were not too flowery include scabiosa, trachellium, seeded eucalyptus and myrtle..
It was a truly stunning day for an outdoor wedding.
Centerpieces in wooden boxes were filled with dahlias, roses, hydrangea, kale, poppy pods, scabiosa, trachellium, eucalyptus and eryngium.
Eclectic vintage-style bottles also adorned the tables.
Place cards were displayed on old shutters in the elevator room.
Congratulations to Lauren and Steve who travelled from the other side of Lake Champlain for their destination wedding! I hope you and your guests (some who travelled all the way from South Africa to share in the festivities!) had the best day. You certainly chose a quintessential Vermont setting and a paired it with perfect weather.
