Real Wedding: Alisa + Tim, Part One


I had so much fun doing this Americana themed Fourth of July Wedding. I used loads of red gingham ribbon for decor, along with pops of blue, white and yellow. It was such a cheery palette and perfect for a summer wedding.


For Alisa’s bouquet she knew she wanted red, but she also wanted daisys for sure. So I mixed peonies, dahlias, daisys and blue thistle for her all american look. Around the base, I wrapped her grandmother’s locket.


For the bridesmaids bouquets, I used buttons Alisa made from left over fabric from her table linens/quilting squares.


When I met with her she brought a bunch and wasn’t certain how to incorporate them, so I suggested using them on the bouquets/bouts and seating cards.


For the groomsmen I made boutonnieres that were all slightly different from each other. This one is nigella wrapped in burlap with a light blue button. Next up the ceremony and more details… Photos by the darling Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie.
