Fall is officially my favorite season. And with new rings that showed up under Christmas trees, I am thinking that there are a lot of you that are going to start planning perfect Fall affairs...full of cozy details and a warm, intimate style. So when I spotted this Jonathan Canlas wedding, it was a total no brainer. I got the full wedding in my inbox last night and it's already up on SMP now. That's kind of what happens when I fall in love with a wedding like this. Plus, it was held in Sundance which seems like a little piece of heaven, it had GORGEOUS flowers that had that fresh from the garden style and the bride and groom seem to be madly in love. Kind of a win, win all around.
We tried to bring the outdoors inside the Rehearsal Hall for a rustic, woodsy look, which we accomplished by using natural materials, live herbs, trees, & leaves, and by making many of the decorations and details by hand. I made the invitations and programs, Joel and I made the CD favors, and my amazing aunt was the florist and handcrafted all of the table designs (boxes with herbs & flowers, wooden sconces and twig wreaths filled with flowers and moss, leaf and bark-wrapped candles, etc). We hired Kellie from Artisan Bloom to design & implement the perimeter of the Rehearsal Hall and to bring in the barn & carriage lanterns hung at various heights with candles inside. My mother & I worked together to come up with a vision of how we wanted it to look, and then she surprised us by taking that vision further than we could have imagined--walking into that spectacular room after the ceremony, with all the candlelight, illuminated trees, herbs, and all of our loved ones was one of the most amazing moments of the day.
I loved how the details made each table different and how they really gave the sense of the outdoors being brought in. The lanterns were beautiful, as was everything down to the herbs in the napkins! Kellie made this amazing monogram out of bound willows for the stone fireplace...We also loved the fire pits and benches outside, and of course the photo booth (which my my mom surprised us with).
