Lorah and Brandon’s Spring wedding was the epitome of the season. Bright green dresses, fresh blooms and a visit with the friendly cows in the neighboring field. It was a celebration of a young family becoming one and a night of fun had by all. Despite the threat of rain, the weather held off and it was a lovely Spring day!

One thing about us, there are no hidden costs. We like for our couples to know exactly how much they will be spending when they tour with us. Lorah, had gone to sign a contract with another venue and when she did, they told her about all the extra costs. Her final balance was going to be way out of her budget, so she had to start her venue search all over again. On suggestion of her fiancé Brandon, who runs the farm next to our property, Lorah came to tour with us and I am so glad she did.
Weather is the biggest factor when planning an outside wedding. The Monday of Brandon and Lorah’s wedding week it was calling for an 80% chance of rain. By Wednesday, Lorah and her dad made the call to rent a tent to have the ceremony under. Lorah was set on an outside ceremony, even under the tent, is was still beautiful. She wanted to use our mantle and had purchased a pretty spring garland for me to put across it. Holly, the florist, lined the aisle with shepherd hooks with mason jars filled with lavender.
The ceremony was officiated by Mr. Gregory, a long time friend of Brandon’s family. One of the sweetest men I have worked with. Any ceremony is more special when friends and family play major roles.
At our thirty day meeting, Lorah came in not knowing what she wanted for centerpieces but knew she wanted my help. She ended up booking my second package through Oh Happy Day to help her with all the decor and setup. In 30 days, with the help of her florist, we had Lorah’s wedding decor planned out. Lorah was so easy going about the details and her favorite response was “it will just come together.”
Thankfully I had plenty of decor items to use from our pieces at the venue. I used a collection of our milk glass, gold vases, other single stem vases and votives on all of the rectangle tables. On the round tables I used our lanterns, with a single stem vase and a votive. No two tables were alike. I used baby’s breath, spider mums and stems of fern to fill the vases. Lorah had also bought stems of look-a-like lavender that I used in some of the gold vases. It was the perfect Spring wedding.
