It’s time to start sharing some of our beautiful weddings from 2019, and I thought I’d start with a favorite from the fall. Kristina and Jordan had a vision for a classic, garden-inspired wedding at the brand new Magnolia Hill Farm in Centerburg, Ohio. The owners of Magnolia Hill farm are Ashley and Coty Henry of Henry Photography, who also did the gorgeous photography work for Kirstina and Jordan.
We were lucky to design for four couples at Magnolia Hill in 2019, and have many more on the books in 2020. This beautiful backdrop is the perfect canvas for whatever you might dream up to enhance its simple beauty. Kristina and Jordan chose to borrow from the surrounding landscape, and we worked together to design a floral palette that was a perfect compliment to their summer-into-fall wedding date.
We used beautiful local ‘Cafe au Lait’ dahlias and ‘Honey Dijon’ and ‘Distant Drums’ garden roses as our focal flowers. Accented with brown lisianthus, beautiful cream butterfly ranunculus, foraged greenery and pretty whimsical touches from sea oats and gomphrena.
We kept the ceremony simple, using gray antique balusters I picked off of Etsy with wild urns, the branches judiciously cut straight from the tree line at the venue. The farmhouse chairs and shiplap touches at the venue were all that this sweet and simple ceremony needed.
I was excited about Kristina’s choice to incorporate a light blue into her wedding design. We used a gorgeous french blue hue from The Lesser Bear for bouquet ribbons, which was a unique compliment to the mauve bridesmaid dresses. It was unexpected and that’s probably what I loved the most.
Kate from the Lesser Bear also created some custom runners for the reception, providing just the right amount of contrast with the centerpiece florals. A selection of tables we kept quite simple, with taper candles and small bud vases. I love this look for a reception table. It’s understated, beautiful, and does an excellent job breaking up the monotony that can be prevalent when each and every table looks the same…
The rose colored linen napkins at the head table were a beautiful touch, also courtesy of The Lesser Bear. Each place setting had a gorgeous herbal lollipop and gold flatware to warm up the tables.
An inspiring affair for a lovely and kind couple. Just the kind of wedding I love.
