Real Wedding: Kelly and Christopher, IV
February 2, 2009

We feature so many gorgeous weddings on Style Me Pretty. From chic and modern to elegant and traditional, each wedding seems to really have a personality of its own. And to be honest, that is exactly why I love today's real wedding...the ridiculously lovely couple, the incredibly warm decor and the hugely personal details that the pair infused into literally every corner. It's simply delicious.

From the bride, Kelly...

Herbs were important to me because they are simple, natural and each have a beautiful meaning.  We used herbs including lavender, sage and thyme for the table settings and wedding party flowers.  I wanted it to have a natural and fresh summer feeling.  The colors I chose were also organic to the setting.  I used lavender, sage and adobe to match the earth and the inn.  We pinned the place cards to oranges at each table setting as I am originally from Florida and wanted to pay homage to the Sunshine State. Our caterer and cake-maker used organic ingredients in the food and cake and for gift bags we gave local products, Mexican wedding cookies and New Mexico tin Corazon ornaments in canvas reusable bags.

We projected a homemade montage of our favorite film scenes on one of the adobe walls, throughout the reception.  I loved looking up periodically throughout the night and seeing flashes of our favorite movie moments.

I have a few more amazing details to come, so stay tuned!
