Our Wedding Details

Our two year anniversary is a little over two weeks away and each Thursday I've been sharing a little more about our wedding.  If you're just now tuning in, you can find my first two posts here and here!

Last week, I promised that I would share the details from our wedding.  It's posts like these, that I wish I had some photos shop skills...but alas, you'll have to bear with me!  :)

We got married in South Lake Tahoe at Edgewood Golf Course...on the lake!  It's beautiful, rustic and very open to the lake.  I found a spread in a magazine that was "rustic-organic-chic" and I knew that I wanted our wedding to include all three elements, plus a dash of elegance.  


We used willow branches for the center pieces with hanging crystal and candles.  


Lots of succulents were used throughout the day...in the centerpieces, on the cake, at the place settings...I just love them!





We also used navy blue to tie the lake in.



 Our escort cards were pretty traditional, but we included photos of loved ones that weren't able to be there with us and one of my grandparents on their wedding day, 61 years ago!


For my bouquet...I really wanted to avoid traditional flowers...so we pulled in peonies, gardenia, garden roses {there is a difference!}, and freesia.  I loved how natural and organic it looked...not too formal!


For favors, we did mini chocolate cupcakes, which was a nice transition from our lemon buttercream wedding cake.


Next week...I'll showcase my bridal details and some couple shots...here's a sneak peak:


Until then...Happy Thursday!

  21. So so pretty! Our one year anniversary is the 6th (eeps, time flies!) and I must say there are a lot of comparisons to be made between our weddings! Ours was rustic chic as well and we used lots of curly willow and trees and herbs everywhere. I loved every last bit of it too. Hooray for weddings!

  49. This is so cute! Your wedding reminds me of a friend's bridal in Perth. The service was great, and everything seemed so surreal. How I wish I will have a wedding like that in the future. Cheers!

  50. Your blue dress... I love its simplicity! I've seen a similar dress from the Kardashian Kollection in Australia, but it's red. I'm not a big fan of red dresses, to be honest. I like something as blue as yours. Best wishes!
