This bride was a high school drama teacher.  I loved that she was not afraid to do something different. I loved, loved, loved the blush shade of her dress. She looked just stunning it in. I also loved that she was willing to take a chance with her bouquet to add willow coming out of her bouquet = drama!

What beautiful weather for this outdoor wedding at Springhouse Gardens. Just look at that sky. We believe it was because they buried a bottle of bourbon onsite the week prior (old wives tale) but we say it worked!

Closeer up to see the detail of pails of baby’s breath on the aisles, in front of the gazebo.

Notice the added details of drapes, rustic verse sign, and the lowered chandelier in the background.

The mother of a bride wanted a cross present, so we incorporated it into a rustic design. The couple did their salt ceremony from this bourbon barrel table.

The ceremony in progress. The wedding party looks great!

Ready just before guests arrive…The wood table is the wedding party table. The ceremony chairs serve double-duty at this wedding and are moved while guests enjoy cocktail hour, prior to the reception.

All the centerpiece flowers were prepped on site, and remained in the shade until temperatures cooled down, on the open-air reception lawn.

Favors included guests own glass for the evening. In true teacher style, use your chalk to put your name on it.

Vintage door frame held guest table assignments.

Cake stays in the shade for summer, outdoor weddings…and is delivered at the last possible moment.

Vintage doors created a perfect backdrop for the photo booth in the garden. Use your #hashtag!

This bride took a big chance planning an open air wedding. But she had a vision and was confident. It paid off in huge style. Simply gorgeous!
