one of our facebook fans posted a link to this gorgeous bohemian and french inspired wedding and i wanted to share some of the photos! i’ve never been the type of girl that’s into weddings or has any desire to have one (unless it involves bare feet, the beach and tribal tattoos) but i will say i find weddings to be beautiful and am always inspired by the tiny little details that people incorporate. for instance, i love the little french touches in this wedding!
the bride, an artist, painted the image for the wedding invites and had them printed as fine art prints, with the details on the back, so that people could keep and frame them if they wanted to.
they set up an antique french dresser with a stack of vintage postcards that people could write notes on and leave in a drawer for the couple.
there was a coffee bar at the reception, and tea boxes were used as centerpieces for the tables.
dried flowers and lavender were used as well for centerpieces, inspired by french country homes.
Nothing is more beautiful than a ceremony that comes from the heart. A couple I know, Adam Smith and Halligan Norris got married back last year in Brooklet, Savannah at a renovated barn. I was blown away by the creativeness and the beauty of their special day.
The theme was, Southern Country Fair/Vintage Circus, it evolved from Halli’s love of vintage circus treasures and a theme that has been a huge inpsirtation towards her personal artwork.
They wanted people to feel like they were in a country fair, so every little detail with help from loved ones was considered and brought to life with the communal help from loved ones. Popcorn machines, a kissing booth and a food menu that consisted of mini hot dogs, french fries, kabobs, mini hamburgers, potato salad, and cotton candy!
When asked about her wedding dress Halli states “I knew I would never find the dress I wanted in a store, but I did know my good girl friend Chelsea Cook’s designs were just what I was in the market for. I wanted to look like the girl on top of the elephant at the circus. That’s basically all the instruction I gave her and of course she made the perfect little number for me.”
This wedding always makes me smile!
The photos were shot by Josh Goleman, and Adam and Halli are an extemely creative couple. Click on their names to visit their websites.
one more really cool fact about the wedding i posted about yesterday? the invitations contained wildflower seeds! the paper can be planted, leaving guests with a patch of wildflowers to serve as a beautiful reminder of the occasion. such an amazing idea.
check out the website where they ordered the invites here.
one of our fp girls got married on saturday! the wedding took place at her brother and sister in-law’s farm in christiana, pa. there were no wedding planners- everything was put together by the bride and groom and their friends and family. the bride looked stunning in a white free people dress (from the cover of our february catalog) and sparrow ankle boots!
half of the guests set up camp and stayed the night under the stars – there was a live bluegrass band, a huge campfire and lots of smores. a string band from asheville, north carolina, called “chompin at the bit” played the cocktail hour, followed by a surprise appearance by “the family band,” comprised of the bride’s family, who played one of the newlyweds’ most favorite songs- “home” by edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros.
sounds perfect :)
toby’s at the wedding! wearing his best tie :)
congrats to the bride and groom! thanks for sharing your lovely photos :)
