One of the most incredible things to me about Jennifer and Mark’s wedding, is the way that all of the details perfectly complemented the naturally beautiful wedding. Says Jennifer of her wedding planner, Rebecca Reategui, “She’s a genius at middle-of-nowhere events!”
To make sure guests were comfortable, the couple offered blankets to keep warm, lavender insect repellent to keep any bugs away, and flip-flops to save feet from high heels.
Ornate frames and a pale blue trim dress up the escort card display board.
Jennifer’s father is from Louisiana, so mint juleps were an appropriate signature cocktail.
Apples and apple branches from the property made their way into lush centerpieces, as did peach and white garden roses, passion vine, andromeda flowers, acorns, pears and dusty miller. Calligraphed place cards were tied to the back of chairs, each one marked with either a cow, chicken or radish, corresponding to their entree choice. Tables were covered with pale blue paisley linens from La Tavola, and set with scallop-edged dinner plates.
The bride’s mother baked small chocolate layer cakes that Ariella Chezar decorated with oak leaves, acorns and roses. Flowers were arranged in a variety of silver vessels.
