Alexa and Kevin were looking forward to becoming husband and wife last spring. But unfortunately, the worldwide pandemic did not allow for large gatherings in public spaces. All the planning, all the excitement, and all the festivities came to a screeching halt. Sadly, their special day was postponed. However, this couple took the lemons they were dealt and they made lemonade. They made the decision to get married in the family’s home with those nearest and dearest in the summer.
White, ivory, and plum tones turned out to be the ideal color palette for the outdoor nuptials. The bride carried a French hand-wrapped bouquet of roses and miniature calla lilies while her bridesmaids received classic gathered bunches of hydrangea, roses, mini calla lilies, and tulips. The backyard pond made a scenic backdrop for the ceremony. A two-post stained wood archway with white organza swag and a lush hedge of florals which included white hydrangea, ivory roses, purple stock, purple lisianthus, purple tulips, and Picasso miniature calla lilies with plenty accents of greenery framed the twosome perfectly.
The family’s beloved wooden swing was decorated with coordinating details and a faux boxwood greenery wall hid the tool shed. Varying height cylinders showcased submerged floral centerpieces across the dining table and petite arrangements were placed at each setting. The lawn area was set with soft lavender LED lighting which enhanced the sunset, and bistro lighting was suspended along the length of the tent to create a romantic ambiance. Finding the sweetness in every sour moment will always make life zestful.
