Ok, back to today’s featured affair. If you thought that the ceremony was gorgeous…wait until you see the reception that this lovely couple threw!

The event was PURE romance and the photographs only help us to see the absolute, unabashed beauty of the day. If there is one lesson from today’s wedding, it’s this…layer, layer, then layer some more. The bride used this gorgeous garden inspiration as her starting point, then continued to bring in different textures and mismatched layers to create a sense of effortless elegance.

I have absolutely no idea if this bride spent $10,000 or $100,000 on this wedding…everything looks expensive and yet still captures that handmade charm that we love so much on SMP. The look is so organic, using fresh from the garden greenery and simple, inexpensive accents like river rocks, moss and even little pieces of unexpected fruit! This is one of those weddings that I will forever love for it’s personality and intimate styling.

More on the way!
