I have the prettiest little wedding for you this morning. I guess that it's not so much a wedding, as the couple eloped in London prior to the party, but rather a celebration of marriage with their nearest and dearest. And although it's an outdoor affair, nearly all of the ideas and inspirations could easily be translated into an indoor reception...from the fabulous Spring color palette, to the Martha inspired dessert bar and the absolutely adorable details. Photographed by Dia Rao Photography, this is one of the sweetest weddings I've ever seen!
The couple, Bree and Nick, eloped in London's Covenant Garden a little while back. But both missed the idea of celebrating their new marriage with their family and friends. Regretting not having a celebration, they decided to throw a wedding party for all to attend. The Groom's parents and close relatives came from Europe to attend a ceremony and reception that they planned at unique historical villa near their home. Most of the details were completed by the couple's family, including the adorable Cookie Bar with homemade family favorites. As well as the handmade Limoncello favors and Love Matches.
The florist behind the absolutely perfect centerpieces and detailing was Anne Mendenhall. Her work is this perfect combination of fresh from the garden and yet tailored at the same time. I love the use of lemons throughout, such a fun and yet inexpensive way to bring a bit of whimsy to the day. Super, super cute.
Actually everything about this wedding was darling. The cookie bar, filled with family recipes and treats that the bride has always enjoyed, the limoncello favors, the lemons as seating cards, the perfect flowers, the glowing bride...everything is completely gorgeous! Oh and the color palette of pinks, yellows and greens...PERFECTION.
Thank you so very much to Dia Rao for sending us today's affair. Dia was a guest at the Lisa Vorce planned affair that we all fell in love with a while back and has been smitten with SMP ever since. We feel the same way about her.
More coming up!
