Ryan and I knew that we wanted to get married only a few weeks into dating. We had been best friends before falling for each other and once we knew that we shared those feelings, nothing could hold us back. When planning our wedding, our love was always the most important factor in the day. We tried to design a day that featured our love front and center - something that would be natural, beautiful, and almost magical. Without all of the frills and tradition that can sometimes be associated with weddings, we knew that our love would shine through. Our gorgeous venue offered a natural landscape with lots of greenery and our floral design was based on that. I chose burgundy carnations because I felt they would be nicely representative of our deep passion, and I thought blush lilies would be a whimsical complement. The rest of the greenery and filler we ordered gave a natural, rustic, and almost wild look to our floral design which I think couldn't be more beautiful. We created a bridal bouquet, three bridesmaid bouquets, a sweetheart table centerpiece bouquet, small centerpieces from eucalyptus green bunches, flower girl petals, florals for our cake, and used leftover flowers to place in a fountain in the reception space.
