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.

    This wedding looks absolutely lovely! I long for my wedding to be like this! Just the little details, like the cocktails, which I know takes a lot of organisation, and the lovely flowers and lanterns. So beautiful!

    Wraps and lavender-scented insect repellent? I wish I could have been a guest at this wedding! I am making note for my own outdoor wedding to provide guests with sweet-smelling stuff to keep the bugs away.

    I love this wedding…the flowers are amazing! And I love the use of the acorns and oak leaves – especially since they’re all over my yard right now! Maybe I’ll make myself a lovely arrangement to brighten the fall days, hee hee!
