The Flowers: When it came to floral, Brittany wanted a

loose, organic composition of flowers to enhance the rustic and natural feel of the wedding. She had the main flowers (bridal bouquet, bridesmaid, flower crown and boutonnières) done by the talented Susan’s Flowers & Gifts, and the rest were handmade the day of the wedding by my girlfriends. They focused on green, white and yellow floral with pops of deep purple. All accentuated with Aspen leaves. The Bride’s bouquet had Italian ruscus, seeded eucalyptus, aspen leaves, Queen Anne’s lace, white snap dragons, dahlias, scabiosa pods, yellow freesia and deep purple lisanthus. Her flower crown was crafted with Italian ruscus embellished with clusters of yellow dahlias, white scabiosa and yellow freesia! The boys boutonnières were composed of fresh lavender, scabiosa pods and aspen leaves. “The calligraphy art I wove into the details of the wedding. I learned calligraphy because I became intrigued with the art form about a year before the wedding. I tried to incorporate it in all details of the wedding – the guests names on the antique window, the handmade chalkboard signs, programs, invitations, table cards and signage. It really brought a personal element to the day, because everyone knew how hard I was working to learn the art form!”
