Rustic Wedding Beauty

Last weekend we went to a friend's wedding at Hurd Orchards.  It was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever seen in my life. 

The bride and groom work in the advertising industry so their attention to detail was impeccable.  Their wedding made the guests feel relaxed and cared for.  They provided shuttles for the hour ride from Buffalo, NY to the orchard and they were greeted with glasses of iced tea with fresh peach slices, a dash of cinnamon, and paper straws.  They had signs greeting the guests, signs directing the guests around the property, lawn games, and the entire wedding decor was filled beautiful late summer/ early autumn colors.  I'm so in awe!  The food was farm to table and the owners barter with local farms to provide items on the menu that they couldn't provide.  I had the honor of designing the bride and bridesmaid headpieces.  The bride had the perfect balance of glamor and rustic style for an orchard wedding.  Many of the guests said the wedding felt like a movie star's wedding and I couldn't agree more! 

I worked on a custom design for her consisting of three fabric flowers made from tulle and silk, layers of yellow and white fabric, with white pearls stitched in the center.  For her bridesmaid I made three white flowers that coordinated with the bride's headpiece, but they were smaller in size and place throughout the bridesmaid hair.  They both looked fabulous. 

It brings me such joy to see two wonderful people coming together with loving friends and family.  It was a day filled with happy tears.  Congratulations!!!!

They made their own beer and bottled it for all of their guests!

The decor reminded me of the Terrain or Anthropologie

Such an adorable couple!  You can feel the love in this picture!
