This wedding?  It’s everything.  It’s laid back, yet elegant, cozy, yet completely sophisticated and charms in ways that only a nature-inspired affair can do.  From the drop-dead gorgeous florals from Greenlion Design to the beautiful images from Ruth Eileen Photography to the amazing Mount Hope Farm venue. Take a gander at all of the pretty here.

From the Bride…When Luke proposed in the Spring of 2013, I had little idea of what type of wedding I wanted; the dress, the theme, if we’d serve cake. I was really starting from scratch, but don’t let the decisions overwhelm you (or your fiance). The wedding planning process is a great time to learn about each other, how to compromise, and how to work together as a family– which is the real heart of the matter. For us, centering our wedding around a common interest of ours, a love of nature, made decision making much simpler and the day itself felt like a dream. We kept the color palette loose, and my bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses. With the ceremony outside, we mainly focussed on florals for decoration, and Kim from Greenlion was amazing. She incorporated local wildflowers and in-season vegetables in the arrangements to echo our celebration of nature. Plantation catering did a great job with the menu, serving local, simple, yet delicious dishes like oysters on the half-shell and vegetable ratatouille. We topped things off with our favorite beers and in-season fruit pies. It all felt amazing, and most importantly like us.

From Kim of Greenlion Design… Michelle and Luke’s vision for their florals was clear: farm feel, loose garden style blooms and local in-season blooms (our favorite type). We incorporated local dahlias, clematis, zinnias, annabelle hydrangea, privot, oak tree leaves, asters, privet, euonymus, porcelain berry vine, snapdragons, and we even used local vegetables to hold the table numbers.

Rhode Island Pink Tented Wedding

Any bride who gives her wedding a big ol’ dose of pink is a bride after my own heart. And from the florals by Orchid ‘N Blooms to the bridesmaids’ dresses in the prettiest shade, there’s no shortage of pink moments to make me stop and swoon. The always fabulous Emily Delamater snapped of gallery of lovely images, and they’re all waiting right this way.

From Emily Delamater… Karen knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding, clean bright and classic with pink and gold details. As most of Hoong’s family was coming from Malaysia for the wedding, it was a perfect opportunity for the couple to introduce his family to New England and the Blithewold Mansion made for an idilic backdrop. The sprawling grounds and gardens were in full bloom surrounding them during the ceremony in the sunken garden.

Karen also used vintage books and international letter boxes to decorate accent tables. The flowers included a gorgeous mix of lambs ear, garden and David Austin Roses, pink and white Peonies, Astilbe and also air plants. I loved that was also a playful sense to the day with signature lemonades and large pink and white balloons decorated with gold and white streamers. It was a gorgeous and intimate event and such a treat to photograph.

From The Bride… I was married on August 31, 2013 at the beautiful and historic Linden Place in Bristol Rhode Island. My photographer was above and beyond amazing. What makes my wedding special? Perhaps dancing the jitter bug with my 91 year old Nonnie or walking down the aisle on a cloudy day as the harpist played “Here Comes The Sun” and the clouds broke a little and the sun began to shine through.  Or maybe it was hearing my husband’s personal vows, or maybe it was the surprise boat ride we took. It definitely had something to do with my sparkler send off! So many things made my wedding unforgettable but knowing all of our friends and family were there was the best part.
