Family Style Wedding by Spruce Floral
August 21, 2009
New England
DIY Inspired

If there is one vendor that I worked with during my entire wedding planning process that I fell madly in love with, it was my unbelievably talented florist, Sarah Miles (now Matteson) of Spruce Floral.

I remember telling Sarah that if my wedding was a room in my house, it would have an old wingback sofa recovered in some great vintage fabric , accessorized with graphic pillows to update the look. She responded by saying that if her wedding was a room in a house, it would have an old, beat up steel table with a fabulous crystal chandelier hanging above. I knew I was in good hands.

So, when Sarah sent me pictures from her own recent wedding, I knew that I was in for a treat. It was a complete and total DIY affair, with flowers that are so beautiful you just might fall out of your chair, and perfect touches that could put any other wedding to shame. Needless to say, I am so SO excited to share this beautiful day with you.

From Sarah...

Tyler and I didn’t even consider getting married anywhere other than the history-filled ages-old lake house belonging to his family on Lake Caspian in Vermont. The space is rustic and tattered and warm, and we embraced that when deciding what direction to go in for mood, food and décor. We decided on an evening of cocktails, dancing and small plates.

So much more on the way!
