Buffy and Dave - A Naturalistic Love Nest Wedding

Lovebirds Buffy and Dave’s intimate wedding was full of romantic, rustic details. The newlyweds exchanges nuptials at The Lange Farm accompanied only by their two children. Light tones of misty pink, ivory, and gold were reflected throughout the flowers and linens. The couple chose a “Naturalistic Love Nest” style, tying in vintage furnishings and décor, glowing candles, and lovebird accents like feathers, nests, and metal birdcages. After the newlyweds sealed their vows with a kiss (with an adorable look of awe from their daughter and amusing grimace from their son), they shared a special first dance under the canopy of Oak trees. Delicate miniature bird nests tucked into branches created the seating chart, and the reclaimed wood dining table was lavishly decorated with a Spanish moss runner, pedestal bird cages, terrariums of flora, and an abundance of candles. Place settings of layered chargers and vintage china were topped with organza napkins in metal finch napkin rings.  The new family enjoyed a light meal of delicious hors d’oeuvres, and the children filled printed kraft bags at the trail mix bar before partaking in the dessert display – a vintage hutch featuring butterscotch-nest topped cupcakes displayed in teacups and vintage china stands, and a wedding cake adorned with a suspended birdcage ornament topper.

    Mismatched wood chairs accented with organza sashes lined the ceremony aisle leading to the great oak tree.

                                             The bride's son carried a miniature bird nest displaying the rings.

                  The groom's daughter, and flowergirl, held the bouquet while watching the ceremony in awe.

       The bride wore a lace gown with keyhole back and carried a bouquet accented with bird nests and feathers.

     The bride's photography business captured the event, and were invited to join the couple for their reception meal.  Gold birds perched in nests on manzanita branches were inscribed with names and table assignments.

             The table featured layered place settings, an abundance of candlelight, and whimsical bird accents.

                  Even the hors d'oeuvres reflected the lovebird motif, with noodle nests and quail egg crostini.

             The gold-painted cake and nest-topped cupcakes were displayed on floral china atop a rustic hutch.

                 The trail mix bar (a favorite snack of the bride) featured nuts, pretzels, dried fruit, and popcorn.

                                                    The beautiful new family celebrates after their ceremony!
