{Malcolm and Chelsie}

Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill
Harrodsburg, KY

Now that the craziness of Wedding season has slowed down for us, I have started to really digest all the Weddings we accomplished this year.  I truly love how each was so different and unique.  The one I am sharing today, Malcolm and Chelsie was so much and I really appreciated both the bride and grooms' talent in design.  Both are designers professionally, and their wonderful photographer, Magnus, from Glint Studios, whom I love, has also worked in the interior design field for years.  Also, I came from years of practicing professional architectural design, so all four of us SERIOUSLY had a hay day with this event.  Chelsie provided me with an inspiration photo and I ran with it. With a natural and whimsical, yet clean and colorful wildflower look I went nuts ordering an in-depth palette of zinnias, ranunculus', dahlias wax flowers, gomphrena, solidago, babys breath, grains, grasses, ferns, etc, the list could go on.  Also, we both collected antique bottles over a period of months to pull off the look for the tablescapes.  I think in the end we had close to 200 antique bottles!

All the bouquets were small, but full of life.  They looked like someone had simply plucked them from the field.  I adored how all the bouquets and bouteneires were all different.

The setting at Shaker Village was stunning, especially the ceremony site.  So simple, yet tremendously elegant.  Rustic benches, burlap, an oriental rug for the bride and groom to stand on and small colorful clusters of flowers in ball jars hung on shepards hooks down the aisle.

Enjoy the pictures.  Congrats again Malcolm and Chelsie....you are a WONDERFUL couple and I wish you did not live all the way on the West coast!!

Till next time....seek great design.
