Fall Boho Chic Wedding Inspiration

When Lauren invited us to join in this fall boho chic photo shoot, we only hesitated because we already had two weddings booked for that weekend.  However it sounded so fun, we knew we had to do it and we are glad we did.  This girl’s got talent ~ Lauren F.otography!!

Lauren asked for a bridal bouquet & floral hair crown, groom’s bout, two table centerpieces and a mixed green garland.  Her colors were burgundy, mustard yellow and a touch of blue.

What Did This Bride Enjoy Most In Planning Her Central Illinois Wedding?

Jared and Molly  –  March 12, 2016

  When we asked Molly what she enjoyed most about wedding planning, she said it was planning for decorating the reception which was held at The Walton Center in Fairbury.  She enjoyed browsing Pinterest and getting ideas, so when we met together to talk about wedding flowers, she and her mom already had many ideas for decorating.  Her vision was for a rustic, country theme and even though it was hard to narrow down her many ideas, she said it was so fun.  They rented our vintage doors to use as a back drop (see photo below.)

Jared proposed to Molly on Christmas.  As Molly opened up the last of her gifts, Jared pulled out a box and as he tossed it to her said “Here – I think this is what you want!”  Molly explains that Jared is a very shy guy and is not much for words, so of course she just laughed and said “YES!!”

For her wedding bouquet, Molly chose blue and white flowers to coordinate with the bridesmaid’s navy dresses.  Her mom surprised her by bringing us lace from her wedding dress to wrap around the handle of her bouquet.  Molly also personalized her bouquet in memory of her uncle by placing his initial on the bouquet handle.

The least enjoyable part of wedding planning for this couple was watching the $$$ add up and realizing they had to cut back their guest list.  It made it stressful worrying about causing hurt feelings and was just not a fun part of the planning!!

For the cupcake table they rented our wooden crates to display the cupcakes.  The cake table backdrop was made from wooden pallets in keeping with the rustic theme.  Molly’s mom hung an old wooden ladder over the head-table.  Hanging from the ladder were jars filled with string lights.

  Molly chose our white birch boxes filled with white and blue flowers for half of the reception table arrangements.

The other half of the tables had our cylinder vase sets with submerged blooms and floating candles which Molly and her mom added twine and burlap/lace ribbon to and placed them on wood slabs.

Jared and Molly’s first dance was to “When you say nothing at all” by Alison Krauss.  Molly offers this advice on planning your wedding.  Don’t stress!!  It’s easy to say now and at the time I did stress, but now looking back I see that the most important things were having family friends with us to celebrate.  We had some things that we could have let interfere with the happiness of the day such as a funeral at the church leaving only two hours for us to decorate before guests started coming and me rear-ending someone with my car on rehearsal night.  I could have let it ruin my day, but I didn’t…why?…Because I still married my best friend at the end of the day!  Enjoy every minute because it goes so fast.

When the day came, everything we had both dreamed of came true!  We had our family and friends with us, the flowers were perfect, the decorations were perfect, I was in a dress that suited my style, the girls and guys all looked great!!
