When one of Ivory & Beau's friends gets married... you know it's going to be unique and one of a kind, and all around awesome. Not only did Rachel get her gown from us, but we also did flowers, planning, and graphic design for the signs. And it was a dream come true!! This wedding was so unique, and filled with so many special touches! It was truly them as a couple all around. Rachel and Jonny are huge Harry Potter fans, and we loved all of their Harry Potter touches. Rachel wore custom Tom's with a hand-drawn Marauder's Map. Their cake topper was a Stag and a Doe, with the words "Always".
Rachel loves cats. Like really loves cats. So when it came to kitty cat details, they were everywhere! One of our favorites is the blue kitty Rachel had our seamstress sew into her gown, made from one of her dad's shirts. The best touch of something blue we have seen! For their photobooth they had kitty cat masks as props, which guests loved! Her table numbers were cat's, stuck into the terrariums we made (which of course had gold cat's in them as well)! For each table, Nicole made one of a kind prints, featuring their favorite quotes with cat and succulent details.
The flowers were a mix of soft feminine garden roses, with natural wild flowers, wax flowers, daisy's, and of course some great succulents. Rachel wore a baby's breath flower crown with some larger blooms on the side, and instead of bouquets, each bridesmaid wore a flower crown made of baby's breath, which was such a fun change! Each girl got to choose their own navy dress, which really showed off each girls personality. We could honestly go on and on and on about this wedding.. but we will let the pictures by Rach Loves Troy do the talking.
Rachel's gown was perfect for her. When she came into the shop we had an idea what gowns she would love, but wanted her to try everything on! After trying out half the store (no, really. At least half the store) she kept going back to Vivian Sage by Rebecca Schoneveld. Once we added the Dahlia lace top, it was the one! So while the bride wore a soft blush, her groom wore a navy suit jacket with mint accents (we love his sock and shoe choice!) Jonny had one of our favorite groom outfits we have seen. And we love the groomsmen matching mint bowties with cotton bouts!
Pineola Farms is such an amazing venue, one of the most beautiful plantations we have done a wedding at! It features 12 acres of pecan trees, multiple guest houses, and a stunning indoor reception area with wood beams and lights. Guests loved exploring the gardens, and taking in the gorgeous scenery. With such a beautiful venue, we kept decor to a minimum. Each table had a terrarium with a kitty cat table number, and a print with one of Rachel + Jonny's favorite quotes. The guest book were arrow heads, and the favors were mason jars that guests drank out of through the night.
