Taylor & Joseph

Hi Guys!

This past weekend we got to do one of our favorite couples weddings!! Taylor and Joseph got married in the evening time at the Grand Island Mansion. We have done plenty of evening weddings at the mansion, however, they are normally in the summer when it is still light outside during the ceremony. Taking the time of year into consideration, we suggested uplighting on the ceremony site area. The couple also chose to get married on the column side of the mansion, not the typical garden side. This side, if you have ever been to the mansion you know that this side is far more dramatic and grandiose. It looked absolutely amazing!

Taylor and Joseph also wanted to embrace the time of year, they chose rich jewel tones for their florals to go with the bridesmaids’ dresses (they were all different rich shades of eggplant, mango, poppy red, and a more truer purple). They also had a bevy of pumpkins lining the aisle to add to the seasonal charm!

Here are some of the photos I snapped, I hope you enjoy them and can be inspired for your big day.

xo,

The aftermath of working with fall branches. Let me just say even with the appropriate tools, cutting through a branch is quite the work out. I think I pulled something… OUCH!

Hello from inside the kitchen! Branches get banned from the design room, they tangle into everything.

These Alhambra roses were exquisite! The bright poppy hue was to die for and even the leaves were so perfect, the most dark espresso shade. Awesome variegated carnations and bouncy little bits of clover make an awesome combination. Taylor wanted to incorporate vintage broaches into each bouquet as well. This adds a touch of shine and a sentimental keepsake.

Barbados spray roses, soft pink garden roses, and our newest favorite… Romantic Antik make an awesome bunch! We wanted to keep the fall feel by incorporating fall leaves into each bouquet as well as a touch of Japanese lanterns.
