Getting to know people through the the whole wedding planning process is my favorite thing. You learn their likes and dislikes and really drill down to their core style pretty quickly. I had always known of Carol Anne, but didn't get to officially get to know her until it came time to do her wedding. She was sweet and stylish, preppy and classic but still had a touch of rustic in her incredibly beautiful self. She loved and knew flowers well, as she use to work in a flower shop, so she cared a lot about colors and textures and the blooms themselves. The beginning of June is a jackpot for flowers- lush coral peonies, coral and peach garden roses, snap dragons (her fave!) yellow lisianthus, corally ranunculus, and bay leaf were perfectly ripe for her wedding. She really wanted to use her family's silver vessels for the centerpieces and to mix things up we added in blue and white porcelain vases. I LOVED this mix of containers- it was so unique and full of personality!
The wedding was at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Anchorage, Ky. This church has always had a bit of a hold on me. First off, it's in Anchorage, and no matter how snooty the neighborhood is, I still adore it. Second, the church and the surrounding property is just so pretty. The building itself is old stone and and the inside is just as old world feeling. Wedding receptions are held in the horse ring next to the church (insert heart eyes emoji!)
