Nina and Tom tied the knot at the picturesque Round Barn Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont.  Two days before the official start of autumn, the rolling countryside was still lush and green and the the pastoral landscape reminiscent of a Monet painting, waterlily pond and all. Nina and Tom were such a delight to work with.  Their collective down-to-earth spirit and enthusiasm was contagious.  Nina is an artist on many levels and I was excited when she told me she would be handcrafting her own pottery vessels for the centerpieces.  I was in awe the day a huge box arrived on my doorstep from California and I discovered the most beautiful containers of all shapes and sizes in gorgeous warm earth tones.  We took the earthy foundation presented by the natural environment, Nina's pottery, and the warm wood tones of the historic barn and layered on saturated colors in shades of wine, fuchsia, magenta, and coral.  Locally sourced dahlias, celosia, and amaranthus stole the show!  Textural foliage, golden craspedia, ornamental cabbages, plump grasses, and pheasant feathers added to the lush natural vibe.  Foliage wreaths hanging from the barn beams, combined with a handcrafted paper heart chandelier brought attention to the dance floor.  The best part of the day?  The smiles and laughter!  Nina and Tom are happily farming in California these days.  Check out Hooker Creek Farm. {photos courtesy of DreamLove Wedding Photography}

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chayah & Mike's wedding has a special place in our Creative Muse heart.  I'm not sure it could ever truly be repeated.  Mike is an environmentalist and Chayah a therapist and yoga instructor.  Their style - eclectic & natural.  An intimate gathering of friends and family at the Lareau Farm Inn in Waitsfield {home of American Flatbread} was nothing short of Mad River Valley paradise!  The day was chilly, but the sun shone brightly.  Guests were hands-on and a troop was ready to help us set up when we arrived.  The bride sunned herself casually while eating Chinese takeout on the porch while the groom sat at the dining room table writing his vows while their dog looked on.  The DIY details were carefully planned and the event could have sprung from the pages of an Anthropologie catalog.  Handcrafted birds, mismatched vintage plates, and teacups, antique bottles, handcrafted paper, it all worked in perfect harmony in a palette of deep fall colors.  We choose locally sourced dahlias, zinnias, sunflowers, safflower, celosia, bittersweet, ornamental grasses, leaves, guinea hen feathers, and amaranthus to accentuate their eclectic style in fresh flowers.  The result...a cozy affair full of folk-art warmth on every level! {photos courtesy of DreamLove Wedding Photography}

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chris and Carrie were married on a perfect September afternoon at the lovely West Monitor Barn.  The bride had a very clear sense of her vision and worked on some amazing DIY details that made the day uniquely their own.  Her blushy palette of pinks, creams, and beige had to find a careful balance of rustic elegance with a little vintage flair.  We chose roses, dahlias, lisianthus, stock, and ranunculus as her focal flowers and accented with scabiosa pods, Star of Bethlehem, and calcynia.  The result...PERFECTION! {Photos by Stina Booth, Studio SB}  Here's what Carrie had to say on a February day looking back -

 

 

"It's cold and snowing, but this just transported me back to the day.  I remember so clearly how floored I was when I saw our flowers for the first time - they were more beautiful than I ever imagined! You were such a pleasure to work with...professional, organized, personable, and such a talented artist!"
