Jim & Stephanie

It was a beautiful day celebrating love and Fall.
Pumpkins (I know!) down the aisle.

A sweet rustic arch where the couple said I do.  (Its at a ranch...there were horses in all of the pastures just to greet everyone and give their blessing on the ceremony.)

Lime green for the bridesmaids.

Dark purple calla lily, hydrangea and Dahlia for the bride.  (With a wee bit of baby's breath- because the bride loves it.)

The groom and his fellas all got peppers and dahlia, rosemary and lavender in their boutonnieres. 
The mothers and other family members all had hydrangea and bittersweet and little spray roses in their personal flowers.

The head table. 


Pumpkins and moss and bittersweet.  (And brown craft paper runners which I thought was a nod to the caterers- who were barbecuing! The smell almost killed Jamie....) 

Since we were on a ranch (which has a working chicken coop, a bee colony, herb and vegetable gardens in addition to all of the horses) I thought it was only appropriate to include herbs and vegetables into all of the arrangements, and in some some of the personal flowers.   (There is purple broccoli and basil below. Artichokes and kale in pictures above. Also grapes and plums and mint and rosemary and lavender get the idea.) 

Half of the arrangements are in pumpkins, the other half are in wooden berry baskets.

It was a good day.  A really good day. It was made even better when the people who own the property let us use their all-terrain vehicles to move everything around.  (That is Jay in the back holding together the massive arch, surrounded by a bounty of pumpkins.  We relocated them to the reception space to be a part of a photo-booth background.  I cannot even imagine having to carry that thing. Or lugging pumpkins.  It was awesome.  Awesome.)

Congratulations Jim & Steph!  Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this bountiful day.  (I couldn't resist...okay?)


  1. Yowza, just gorgeous!!! Love the veggies, herbs, peppers all mixed together with the flowers. Perfect autumn colors and touches. Question- are brides starting to like baby's breath again? Wondering if we need to plant it again. Went out of favorite for a couple of years. Your thoughts?

    1. Awwww, thank you! Baby's breath really seems to be "on trend" lately. I wouldn't use it unless requested. The BB for this wedding was really the fluffiest, nicest I have ever seen. I have 2 weddings for next year that have requested it. Arg! How is that for vague! :)
