Emmerson Creek Barn Wedding

Posted on August 26th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Chelsey and John were married at Emmerson Creek Barn this past summer.  The barn and tent were filled with lots of color, a bit of rustic charm and plenty of vintage touches.

The bridesmaid’s pastel bouquets popped off their coral lace dresses perfectly while Chelsea’s bouquet of coral charm peonies, peach garden roses, blush lisianthus, ivory dahlias, and lots of other textures complimented her bridal gown wonderfully.

Chelsea worked with a vintage rentals company to select her reception vessels which consisted of silver trays, a trio of milk glass vases, crystal vessels, and polished silver teapots.  The texture of the silver teapots was captivating and created that perfectly aged aesthetic on the tables!  We filled them all with a colorful palette of wildflower blooms which really popped in the tent.  Lidia & Rueben of Codrean Photography were there to capture every detail perfectly.

Their floral palate consisted of the most beautiful pastel & romantic blooms that early summer has to offer.  We used lush & fluffy white & pink peonies, peach garden roses, lisianthus, as well as accents of white veronica & white tweedia.  Accented with gorgeous silk ribbon from Frou Frou Chic, along with the lush fluffy blooms, Mackalah’s bouquet was by far one of my absolute favorites.

As I watched the two stand under the hanging lights of the barn and exchange vows, I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmingly blessed.  I’ve known Mackalah growing up pretty much all my life, and it was such an honor to create a bouquet that she would walk down the aisle with to start her new … Read More »
