Whimsical Garden Wedding Inspiration

There are some weddings where the inspiration must be crafted and created and other weddings where the inspiration was just meant to be.  Danette and Steve's Spring wedding was one of those where when we saw Danette's dress, we knew what direction the wedding would take, almost instantly.  A Cajun girl at heart, we pulled together sage and moss green and lavender and plum shades of purple throughout.  This not only created a lush garden feel but also pulled together the several of the colors that represent her Louisiana roots.  The intricate and delicate flowers on her dress became the focus of the inspiration~a touch of garden with a hint of whimsy.   With Steve's roots in Scotch/Irish, the moss and rocks that made a statement throughout the design were a homage to his heritage.  Pops of Louisiana's state wildflower, the iris, could be found throughout and what better way to bring in the whimsy than the use of the fiddlehead fern?  It's masculine enough for boutonnieres, yet soft enough to incorporate in bouquets.

Before we unveil the moments captured of this gorgeous real wedding, we wanted to present the inspiration board that guided us on our design quest throughout preparation.  Inspiration for every wedding is absolutely necessary.  Each wedding we design is incredibly hands on, and not only do we want the overall presentation to have that 'wow' factor- but we want each couples Big Day to tell a story, their story, and more importantly, a story like no other.
