Romantic relationships generally require a gritty dedication, moments of creative imagination, and patient nurturing to flourish and produce the “Wow, those two are really in love,” effect.
Given the same attention, flower gardens respond with their own intricate little “wow” beauty. It is entirely fitting, then, that Molly and Wynn said “I do” in a garden setting with a beautiful lake in the background in the glorious backyard of the parents of the groom, misted with a light rain. Of course, there were other elements like the lake backed by mountains, the pool decked in Chinese lanterns, the Carribbean inspired colors…but I’m getting ahead of myself. Captured below by the incredibly talented Frances Photography.
Garden roses and ranunculas breathe romance into any bouquet. When featured in bright playful hues and combined with sprigs of fresh mint, they lend an unexpected hint of the tropics (where Wynn proposed to Molly in the blue waters of the Bahamas). We worked with Statice Floral to customize this combination.
It started with a 5th grade crush…and then officially progressed to dating in high school…and just kept growing through the college years apart. Hats off to these two for the gritty dedication, creative imagination, and patient nurturing that brought them to this day!
Guests were welcomed at the gorgeous home of Wynn’s parents where their cars were valet parked as they followed a lantern-lined stone walkway past the aqua pool to white chairs facing a garden embankment. Molly and Wynn exchanged vows at the top of this embankment, lakeside, with a mountain backdrop. And while surrounding areas were getting high winds and heavy rain, the light mist here just added a fresh coolness to the July air.
Building a reception space from the ground up takes some time. When you factor in the tent set-up, the carpet installation, draping the entire ceiling and walls, adding uplights, hand-tying the chivari chair cushions, and hanging greenery-ensconced chandeliers, this set-up took all of three days and eight vendor companies. Totally worth the elegant garden-inspired effect.
As guests were enjoying a poolside cocktail hour, one wall of the tent was removed to reveal a mountain view for guests as they entered and enjoyed dinner.
Creative presentation, customized menu planning, & delicious flavor made Footer’s Catering the top choice for this tasteful event.
Artfully adorned by Shamane’s Bake Shoppe, the wedding cake was a vibrant masterpiece.
And here it is, that “Wow, those two are really in love,” effect. Congratulations, Molly and Wynn!
