Good morning SMP-er’s, we have another gorgeous day lined up for you. We’re kicking off our Sunday morning with this playful woodsy wedding. Sent to us by Natalie Thomas this lovely backyard affair was filled with fresh hydrangeas, colorful paper cranes, and a whole lot of personality… and you know we love it when a bride finds her inspiration from SMP. You can see every last detail right here in the gallery.
Emilia is a huge “Style Me Pretty” fan and was really inspired by the post she check each day! I actually knew her from high school when we were paired up together for a school assignment, and was honored that she selected me as her photographer 10 years later. From the day we met up over a year before the wedding date she had everything very neatly organized in a binder with color swatches, photos and blog posts. Purple and hydrangeas were the inspiration for the day and the detail were set around that theme.
Emilia enlisted the help of her amazing family and put special DIY touches in creating all the details that came together in such a strong way. The wedding was held at her grandparent’s house as the house and its surrounding had meant so much to her and she had fond memories of spending her childhood there. The ceremony took place in an open area off from the long tree-lined driveway and was decorated with hanging parasols. The twin flower girl’s skirts were made from an old prom dress from the maid of honor, and the groom’s nephew was wheeled down the aisle in a personalized radio flyer wagon.
Emilia and Nicholas had an amazing spread of cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. The cupcakes were featured on multiple glass and chandelier platters with purple tulle behind. The favors were personalized tote bag featuring a print of a hydrangea along with a quote from Ghandi, which was also on their wedding programs.
