Kristen and Kevin’s wedding was a gorgeous occasion that was infused with a casual feel, but a sophisticated style. The lovely pair was married on October 10, 2015 at Verulam Farm. The location complemented and enhanced the theme of Southern elegance with a rustic charm. The wedding was planned by Verulam’s very talented Kennon Ibbeken and photographed by the exceptional William Walker Photography.
Kristen was the epitome of bridal elegance. She wore a champagne colored gown, and carried a unique and romantic bouquet of succulents, white freesia, ranunculus, hydrangea, and white garden roses. Seeded eucalyptus, rosemary, silver brunia berries, and privet berries added texture and volume. The bouquet was tied together with a cream satin ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls. The bride added a personal touch to her ensemble with colorful cowboy boots.
The ceremony was held in the field of Verulam, facing the mountains, with the backdrop of the main house. Our birch arch was used for the altar. Organically arranged magnolia leaf, hydrangea, and roses cascaded from the arch and framed the altar. Clear jars of blue, white, and green florals dangled from shepherd’s hooks along the aisle. The highlights of the ceremony were the adorable flower girls, wearing white dresses and cowboy boots. Of course, the pure happiness on the bride and groom’s faces could not be matched.
The Cider Barn on the property housed the reception. The florals were loose and elegant, with a “from the garden” feel. Birch and wood accents, along with lanterns and mason jars, completed the decor. The head table, a vintage farm table, was framed by a garland of greenery. Two low, rustic iron troughs were filled with moss and placed on the table. Votives were nestled in the moss running down the length of the trough, adding a romantic feel. Small floral arrangements in mixed, delicate, and vintage vases were placed on each table. The reception was catered by A Pimento, and the delicious cake was created by Cakes by Rachel.
It was an honor to be a part of this stunning wedding. We are so overwhelmed by the beautiful setting, design, and people. Congratulations to Kristen and Kevin!
