Little Chapel in the Woods

Aug 12, 2009

Leah chose a palette of Tea Rose and Espresso for her 7F Lodge wedding. I love this venue! The blend of Texas rustic and European charm was the brainchild of Carol Frierson-Conlee, who happens to be one of the most creative and encouraging people I’ve ever met.




Green hydrangeas, ‘Charming Unique’ roses, Berzillia berries, ‘Vendela’ roses and ‘Swan Lake’ mini callas decorated the front of the chapel.






Groomsmen wore boutonnières of fiddleheads and bear grass wrapped in ‘Tea Rose’ double-faced satin Midori ribbon.












Cones of hydrangeas, roses and berries lined the aisle.






The bridesmaids carried hand-tied bouquets of ‘Charming Unique’ roses, fiddle heads (aka fern curls or monkey tails) and bear grass loops. We covered the buttons on the handle in Tea Rose to match the detailing on the dresses.



We had a few extra tables set up to use for overflow and needed an economical centerpiece for these tables. We came up with the idea, above, to use a candle set in coffee beans (since the color palette included Espresso) surrounded by moss. We added a band of the Tea Rose ribbon. I was surprised when so many brides began requesting this centerpiece for other weddings. You just never know what will appeal to people…and sometimes it’s the simplest things.
