Jane & Rahul’s Langham Wedding

Happy Friday! It’s been ages since our last blog post, but we have some lovely 2016 weddings to share!

Jane and Rahul chose a beautiful and elegant wedding venue, the ballroom at the Langham Hotel. But they wanted to fill their wedding with unique, “moody”, and “romantic” elements that fit with their fun and quirky personalities. Jane wanted the florals to look as if they were straight from a Dutch still-life painting. So no ordinary bouquet would do… Vale of Enna created this fabulous cascading bouquet with the most stunning King Protea!

Their beautiful letterpressed invitations from Magnificent Milestones were black with rose gold foil ink, and a romantic floral envelope liner in a slate gray envelope.

This escort card table definitely fit the Dutch still-life feel!!

Amy & Bradford’s Rookery Wedding – Part 1

Woweee, we are finally getting close to wrapping up our 2015 wedding season (2 more weddings!), and it’s time to share some of the beautiful weddings we helped create this year! The first couple we sent down the aisle was Amy & Bradford at one of our favorite venues, The Rookery! Amy envisioned a romantic, elegant wedding with some garden-y touches, and I think we achieved just that! And just take a look at these gorgeous images from photographer, This Is Feeling. They absolutely take my breath away…
