Ask The Experts: Fantastic Flower Tips For Your Wedding
When it comes to weddings, the flowers have to be one of my favourite aspects....
What a wonderful wedding I have for you today! This fun filled retro loving wedding is filled with the most wonderful 70s inspired details, as well as warm earthy tones that matched the autumnal time of year perfectly. Maddie and Conor were married on 8th October 2022 in Mt. Airy, Maryland. They were lucky enough to hold the wedding at Maddie’s family farm, which meant the day was even more special to them. They added their own retro boho twist with the decorations adding DIY touches here and there and really going to town with their 70s theme. I love this wedding, I love the romantic outdoor ceremony, coupled with the fun element of the reception. Big thanks to Bellwether Events for the submission.
Maddie walked into a bar one night while Conor was serving drinks in D.C. The two had originally met in high school and reconnected that evening over dinner. They soon moved to Richmond, Virginia, together. While on a trip together in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Conor tricked Maddie into dressing up to go out for the night. He proposed in front of all their friends, and they immediately changed back into their pyjamas to party into the wee hours of the morning.
Inspired by the countryside and rolling hills of Maddie’s family farm, this couple’s wedding perfectly embraced earthy and eclectic details with a light seventies flair. The duo snapped first-look photos as they privately read their vows in a garden of wildflowers. Maddie wore a minimalist A-line gown paired with an array of gold and diamond jewellery. Most notably, she was adorned with an angelic headband and white snakeskin boots. Conor wore a forest green tweed suit and bolo tie. A simple ceremony was held on the lawn, utilizing a wooden bridge, decorated with rustic florals, as an altar. Their autumnal colour palette of rusty oranges and mustard yellows made its way throughout the reception. Burnt orange décor, amber glassware, velvet tablecloths and sofas, and natural wooden elements greeted guests in their custom lounge areas. Signage included 70’s inspired fonts and mod designs on their seating chart, table numbers, and welcome signs. The couple also created a DIY colour-blocked photo backdrop near the bar for guests to take their own polaroid’s. The final touch, a rich, berry-coloured cake, was garnished with figs and orange slices in a flourish of autumnal delight.
