First off, the venue….gorgeous, gorgeous landscaped grounds with beautiful flowers, a water feature, and an indoor area for the reception that also could be opened up to the outside on warm days.
The wedding ceremony was held outside under this lovely circular pergola that had hanging baskets and flower containers all around.
When you enter the interior of the facility, in addition to a guest book, the bride and groom had a pretty table set up with this greeting and some bubbles to be used after the ceremony when the couple walked down the aisle.
The wedding colors were a minty teal and grey, so the napkins and place mat were grey, and the bride brought in the teal color with pretty candles.
In the picture below, Robert, the groom, is on the left, and the handsome couple are my brother Matthew and sister-in-law Sherry. Sherry, the mother-of-the-bride, wore a beautiful full-length dark teal gown with gems or rhinestones on the sheer portion along her neckline. Doesn't she look gorgeous?
Each bucket had a black heart on the outside and was filled with different dirt from each location.
After the ceremony, there was a cocktail hour as the bride and groom took a few wedding pictures. My husband and I decided to start searching for that frog again, (what can I say…we love little critters!) and I snapped this picture of him: If your wondering where I am in all these photographs, I decided to save those photos for a 'What to Wear to a Garden Wedding Fashion Post', which will be posted later this week.
