Erica and David's Blush Vineyard Wedding

I’ve been very fortunate over the years to meet some incredible people. And one of my favorite parts of being a wedding florist is that I enjoy working with my brides!

I love getting to hear the details of their wedding. Not many people can handle hearing the specific details of the kind of linen you’re ordering for your wedding but I DO love to hear about those things! A Tuscany linen rented from La Tavola in 134” round in ice blue with coordinating chiavari chair pads? I’m 100% tracking with you and couldn’t be happier to see the color swatch! It’s not for everyone but it’s definitely for me.

Along with getting to hear all the details I genuinely become invested in your wedding and how every aspect of your vision becomes a reality. And with that, I often times get new friends! I love hearing from my brides. Even yesterday I received a random email from one of my bride’s from 3 years ago just checking in and seeing how things were going. Gosh, I love that and it makes me love my job even more-if possible!

Erica is one of those special people that has the sweetest spirit and kindest heart. I’ve been fortunate enough to keep tabs on her over the years and I even got to work with her on a styled shoot in Charleston! I love seeing her life updates on instagram.

Erica and David had a beautiful wedding at Veritas Vineyard in Charlottesville, VA on a sunny Summer evening. It was a scorcher but that didn’t stop anything from being less than perfection.

Check out that draping on the ceiling. She had farmhouse tables and a sweet color palette of soft neutrals. It was elegant, tasteful, classic and a lovely celebration of two special people. I’m so thankful I got to be a part of it and I still get to cheer them on! Enjoy the photos by Sam Stroud Photography.

Preppy Pastel Vineyard Wedding

Nothing aggravates me more than something that's completely unrealistic.  Which is why I don't trust most eyebrow pencils, robot vacuum cleaners, and dare I say, some wedding magazine shoots. 

I get that sometimes, photo shoots sole purpose is to be inspirational.  We all need to keep thinking forward and away from the mason jar but too much unrealistic can leave me feeling like what I'm going to have will never be good enough- and that's not cool.

So, today, I'm sharing another one of Petal's real life weddings.  Erica and David's wedding was magical, with all the gathered sheer drapery, rolling hills of glistening grape vines, and flowers EVERY WHERE to show you:

  1.  that real life is beautiful
  2.  something realistic and obtainable and not a fancy limitless budget photo shoot
  3.  you don't need to own land with oil on it to be able to afford it

It was put together by a beautiful bride who knows how to pick some of my favorite vendors.  Kim Newton- Wedding planner
