Real Wedding: Holly and Jordan

Today’s wedding is bright, fun, and filled with elegance! The details are completely fabulous and the bride and her planners did an excellent job of blending the fresh outdoors with glamour and style. And I am a total fan of using fruit, like these green apples! The photos by Stephanie Baker make everything just that more fabulous!

Holly, the bride, shares some details:
There is nothing in the world that can surpass the beauty of the outdoors. So when it came to planning our dream wedding, we knew that we wanted our ceremony and reception to take place in a natural setting. We had an elegant, yet simple ceremony held in a grass cove; other than the simplicity of rose petals, we used the natural setting as our décor. Our reception tents were centered around a one hundred year old oak tree, which truly made a remarkable impact.

To create a fun and modern atmosphere that reflected our personalities, we chose earth tone colors with gold and silver metallics. Instead of traditional centerpieces, we used glass cylinders filled with orchid stocks and apples. We had lounges for guests to rest their feet after dancing under the stars, and our guests were treated with a candy bar filled with our favorite sweets.

The best advice I can offer to other brides is to hire a wedding planner! I truly had no idea how many details go into planning a wedding. We had so many ideas, but weren’t sure how to tie everything together. We had an incredible wedding planner who took our ideas, made them more fabulous than we thought possible, and created an amazing atmosphere that truly exceeded our expectations.
