Carissa and Todd's wedding was a true collaboration. When I showed up to our first consult Carissa's mom, Dana, had already collected all the vases for the tables. Talk about prepared! Their event was taking place at the newly remodeled Elms Hotel, in Excelsior Springs. A beautiful historic spot, with an outdoor space for the ceremony. Unfortunately it was rainy and humid on the first day of September, but we made due in the ballroom with a beautiful ceremony (all the decor for the ceremony was created by Dana). We were really happy with how everything turned out, and Carissa and Todd loved it, which was the most important part (and Dana as well).
A big thank you to Dana and Carissa for collaborating with us on this lovely event, and to Morgan at Cornerstone Photography for the images.
Carissa carried a classic, romantic bouquet full of ivory dahlias, ranunculus, and garden roses.
Instead of traditional pin corsages we made brooches out of fresh flowers and incorporated vintage rhinestone jewelry for a bit of sparkle. Bouts were textural with ranunculus, scabiosa pods, and berries.
The bridesmaids wore beautiful poppy orange dresses and had bouquets with garden roses, dahlias, and ranunculus.
Half of the tables had vases provided by Dana were filled with twig balls for a touch of brown, along with fluffy white hydrangeas, beautiful orange roses, and touches of pink, and accents of sparkling crystal.
The other half of the tables had pomanders in orange, peach, and ivory. We wanted a sort of ombre effect.
Such a lovely day, we were happy to be a part of it!
