October 8th was an absolutely glorious day for a wedding. I know that Megan and Justin were probably very happy with the weather, but I am sure that they were even more excited that it was THEIR Wedding Day!!!
You start months in advance... choosing the date, the venue, the caterer, the cake, and of course the flowers, just to name a few. And then before you know it, your wedding day is here, and that day will change you forever!
It was great to meet with Megan and her Mom, Nancy, and discuss flowers and color palettes and such. Megan admitted that she did not know a lot about flowers, but was delighted with the way the colors and textures blended and complimented the plum color of the bridesmaids' dresses.
And I love this color palette too! The rich jewel tones of wines and grapes and purples play off the soft pastels of lavender and ivory and lilac.
Here are some of the centerpiece designs- narrow vases wrapped in soft green satin ribbon embellished with a purple button and filled with purple and lilac stock and ivory Majolica spray roses.
Carolyn Graf, a friend of the family's, baked and decorated this beautiful wedding cake. Buttercream frosting is a definite YUM!
Now the newly married couple is off on a wonderful honeymoon. Praying God's blessing for you, Megan and Justin!
