O&E Tie the Knot!

Posted on: Monday, September 27, 2010

One of my best friends was married over the summer. I posted earlier on her engagement photos, here. Her wedding was absolutely stunning and she deserves ALL of the credit! A fashion maven herself, with a background in interior design, she designed and executed each element of the event. I am still in awe of her attention to detail and flawless taste. Many of the images below were captured by her amazing photographer, William Tangorra.

Venue-The Brides Childhood Home:
The incredible sail cloth tent.
Above I stole a quick moment with the bride.
Can you believe our bridesmaid dresses!? They can be worn over 20 different ways and are so comfy cozy! Totally classic yet glam.

The Decor:
Signs welcoming guests were hand painted by the bride.

"O" had a lovebirds theme that was subtle and elegant. The theme of birds influenced the decor and created consistency without being overwhelming.
Place cards held in a tray filled with birdseed. Note the tiny feathers on the cards.
Welcome table designed by "O" with a large vintage birdcage to hold written notes from guests giving advice for the lovebirds.

Each table was decorated with vintage and sentimental items.
"O" finally seeing her vision come to life.

Each table card had a different portrait that "O" purchased on ebay from a 1963 Audubon winter bird series.
Floral arrangements with peonies were held in large mercury glass vases.

Feathers were also incorporated in the brides bouquet and the grooms boutonniere.


Ginny hen feathers were purchased at the local farmers market.

Time to kick of our shoes (adorned with EmeresonMade blooms) and have some fun!
"O" changed into her late night party dress which matched the bridesmaids but was a fun and flirty red. Perfect for dancing the night away.

The evening ended with sparklers.
Don't you wish this lady was for hire? So incredibly talented!

All my best to the lovely couple, O&E!
Thanks for including me in your special day.
xoxo

Your friend was absolutely gorgeous! As were those BM dresses! So versatile, and could definitely be worn again!

I love all the little details that they added, like the books and bird cage. And those Emerson Made blooms are perfect! What a lovely touch.

Happy Tuesday, doll!

xoxo,
Julie

Such a gorgeous wedding! Pretty amazing that she did so much of it herself - she truly has a fantastic eye.

I'm a huge fan of the sail cloth tent. And her dress truly matched the lovely decor.

Also, you make such a chic bridesmaid! I love those dresses.

Thanks for sharing!
