Do you want to get married at home but are not sure how to design the perfect wedding decor for the garden? Follow the example of Carlee + Scott and be inspired by nature! C works as a florist and wanted her day to reflect on her passions, the couple’s adventures, and eclectic sense of style. With the help of the planner, The Greatest Adventure Weddings, they created a color palette of earthy fall colors and warm sunset colors. A first glimpse of the lake, a wooded ceremony, and an outdoor tent reception revealed dried flowers and a mix of vintage carpets, woven baskets, and wooden materials. Although it wasn’t her Plan A, C says it was still perfection:
Our original guest list consisted of 200 people, and the final list included immediate family, the bridal party, and our friends. In retrospect, we both admit that an intimate wedding was right for us all along. As we continue to move through the pandemic, I hope our wedding GWS followers can be a great example of what a small intimate wedding can look and feel like. With fewer guests, you can spend more budget on details, spend more time with all of your loved ones, and focus on the little things that really matter.

The first look
C was absolutely radiant on the wedding day. We love her soft makeup and the ruffled updo by Angie Evans.
And this DRESS! C absolutely rocked this dress by Willowby by Watters from A and Be Bridal Shop. The color, fabric, and those glitters are all perfect!
S wore the perfect blue shade of Generation Tux. We love this nod to the accent color palette!
Gold Nike tennis shoes… do we need to say more ?!
Our favorite memories of that day were; Our canoe trip during our first sight, dancing together and our sparkler & bubble send off.
Just worship the energy between these two!
Backyard wedding decor inspo
You would expect a florist bride to have fabulous flowers for her wedding, and C and her team at Rusted Vase Floral Co. did not disappoint !!
In terms of details, I knew I wanted our wedding to reflect not only us as a couple but also my brand as a florist. Our sunset color palette (with a touch of blue) combined with our personal touch and decor made our wedding feel elegant while reflecting our eclectic style. Mismatched carpets, specialty furniture rentals, and hanging baskets (many collected on our trips) all helped make our wedding feel welcoming and detailed at the same time.
Aren’t these ribbons beautiful? This is where you can mix it up and find more creative and meaningful ideas for ceremonies!
Viet Dinh with Rain & Pines led the ceremony and as far as we can tell there were lots of giggles and sweet moments.
As a seller, the most common questions I have been asked are “Do you make your own flowers?” and “How did you choose your suppliers?” The first question: “Do you make your own flowers?” was a bit more difficult, my answer was always the same, “yes and no”. It was very important to me that our flowers felt like me, and I couldn’t imagine not holding a few things in my hands, but I’m not totally crazy so I didn’t do a day building it. My incredible team did some design work ahead of our day and also ran the styling and setup day of.
