summer lovin’…what a gorgeous wedding that took place this August at the Heartwood Retreat Center in Trego, Wisconsin.  Laura Mullen Event Design made sure that Jenny & Jeff’s organic garden wedding with a slightly modern twist was perfect in every way!
Jenny’s bouquet was a combination of orange poppies & ranunculus, yellow dahlias & craspedia, scabiosa pods, white poppies, and the ever darling white andromeda, blue vibernum berry with hints of green hanging amaranthus to create fun movement in her bouquet.
the paper below really was the inspiration for the day’s color scheme…oranges, blues, greens with a sweet pair of blue birds perched on a branch.  invites, programs, and the flower cones which decorated the outdoor aisle were created using this paper!  and twine was wrapped around the invitations as well as the bridesmaid bouquets.

flower cones hanging from shepherd hooks adorned with orange ribbon and bouquets of soft bunny tails.

the flower cones were repurposed after the ceremony, hung from the rustic mantel and accompanied by a fragrant custom fifteen foot garland of bayleaf, orange mountain ash berry &  fresh rosemary!

and, how cute is this shot of the young guest capturing this moment?!

love the shoes!

and the darling cake by Jessica’s Cakes in Minneapolis…complete with a pair of blue birds.

fabric runners were designed to match the summer floral print for the day.  centerpieces included a trio of rustic barn wood boxes designed with dahlias, scented geranium, yellow tansy & blue vibernum berry.

tall outdoor arrangements were created in pewter trumpet vases…with green antique hydrangea, green hanging amaranthus, orange & yellow dahlias, lovely orange mountain ash berry, birch branches…and cat tails.  a special request from the bride & groom to compliment the natural surroundings.

 

congratulations Jenny & Jeff!!
