When you have your wedding at A New Leaf, you are required to use them for the floral decor. This was a positive for me as I love the flowers at A New Leaf, when Dan gets me flowers this is where he goes, and because they are working on site there is no delivery cost and a bit of flexibility with using the pieces they have on hand for decor. One of the challenges however is that you don't see a mock up and only talk to them about a month or so before your wedding... I could say that I wasn't nervous about how the flowers would turn out but that would be a lie. I could say that I don't care about floral decor but that would be a lie too... you can't grow up in my house without a love of flowers and gardening.
I was thrilled with the floral decor. It really fit the "from the garden" look I described to the florist. Birch became a common thread throughout; we had birch branches at the ceremony, birch vase wrappers, and birch poles... I loved the mossy accents, the bud vases surrounding the centerpieces, and the overall gardeny effect...
For additional touches, we reused the whirlyball roses from the ceremony for the highboys and used strings of bud vases...
Up next I will post the final pieces of our reception, including the summer garden party menu and our "mini trash the dress" photos.
