Sabrina and Alex - A Lavender and Mint Garden Wedding

Sabrina and Alex's intimate garden wedding was all about family! Their parents and siblings were all smiles that day, and their daughter was simply the most adorable flowergirl imaginable! What's truly amazing is that they were able to pull off a beautiful wedding filled with charm and detail for only $15,000! By stocking their own bar, DIYing their own stationery, and sourcing their own centerpiece materials and decor, they were really able to stretch their budget! Because the bride favored colors of purple and green, we created a Lavender and Mint theme that translated throughout the wedding. Sprigs of lavender accented the boutonnieres, guests enjoyed lavender lemonade with mint tea, and the bride and groom were showered with lavender buds tossed from poem paper cones following the ceremony. The flowergirl could not have been cuter in her floral crown carrying a sign that read "Daddy, here comes Mommy" and although she had stage freight during the rehearsal, she was all smiles down the aisle on the wedding day. A rustic garden wheelbarrow was filled with bottled beers and sodas during cocktail hour, and guests' seating arrangements were handwritten on a chalkboard-style framed seating chart. The centerpieces were simple and perfect for a DIY-minded bride with a modest budget; some tables featured silver lanterns and flower-filled mason jars repurposed from the ceremony aisle, while others featured clusters of assorted bud vases in silver trays, or pedestal candles amidst a scattering of rose petals. The cupcakes display also reflected the wedding theme, with flavors like Honey Lavender and Chocolate Mint among other favorites.

                This stunning bridal bouquet consisted of hydrangea, roses, freesia, dusty miller and lisianthus.  

                                             How adorable is this flower girl and her sign and floral crown?

      The aisle was lined with garden hooks and suspended mason jars filled with limonium and crysanthemums.

                  Tables dressed in silver linens with lavender napkins were surrounded by purple uplighting.

        Some tables featured centerpieces of silver lanterns with julep cups of flowers and chalk table numbers.

                                  The couple enjoyed the waterfront views of the Davis Islands Garden Club.

            The maid of honor wore a lilac gown & gentlemen wore charcoal suits with purple vests & bowties.

                                              Boutonnieres included roses, waxflowers, and soft greenery.

               Pages of a vintage poem book made perfect cones for the lavender toss following the ceremony.

                           The chalkboard-style seating chart stylishly directed guests to their reception tables.

                        The couple ceremoniously cut a small cake and served assorted cupcakes for dessert.
