A crew of bridesmaids decked out in airy rose colored dresses and well-worn cowboy boots helped the bride tie on her crystal embellished belt. A single garden rose tucked behind her ear secured a messy bun hairstyle and completed Daphne’s relaxed bridal look. They said their vows outdoors beneath a wrought iron archway, the perfect warm weather setting!

Daphne’s attendants were able to express their unique personalities and styles by customizing the necklines of their gowns. The collection ended up including one-shoulder, strapless, spaghetti straps, and even a ruffled option! The bridal bouquet featured a cluster of stunning white roses surrounded by tiny waxflowers (which make a lovely unexpected alternative to baby’s breath), while simple sprays of waxflower tied with burlap were held by the bridesmaids.

Hay bales, cheerful potted plants, and quaint hand-painted signs directed guests to the reception tent.  While guests wandered over to the their tables, the bride and groom took a few moments to enjoy the gorgeous scenery and snap portraits on a small bridge. The cake table was decked out with mason jars and an organic hydrangea arrangement, tying in flawlessly with the country theme. Scalloped buttercream frosting and a live-edge wood stand complemented their wire cake topper shaped to form the word ‘Love’.

Framed chalkboards displayed seating arrangements and clean white linens kept the reception space feeling fresh.  As the hours went by, their loved ones hit the dance floor beneath a canopy of lanterns. Guests continued to celebrate after the sun went down, partying the night away!
