Suzie & Drew | Wedding at Rutgers Art Rudolph Sun & Shade Garden
It is difficult to put into words how special Suzie and Drew are to us. So special that it has taken us almost six months to write about their wedding. Suzie was a regular customer turned bride, and, ultimately the most treasured part, friend. As a result, there was a great amount of anticipation leading up to this wedding. Tears may have been shed while constructing Suzie’s incredible bouquet. Happy tears, of course.
The wedding consisted of natural, textured, fragrant, and elegant elements.
The luscious array of bridal and bridesmaid bouquets:
Of all of the bridal bouquets we have ever made, Suzie’s bouquet has gone down in our history books as the favorite. Peonies, astilbe, nigella, stock, and lady’s mantle made this bouquet what it was. It was lush, understated, elegant, and beautiful. In short, it was Suzie.
We were given free reign over all of the boutonnieres. This resulted in a continuation of Suzie’s textured and natural theme. Nigella, craspedia, astrantia, and dusty miller are what made this boutonniere tick.
To create a chuppah, we draped dupioni silk within the gazebo. We decorated the chuppah with flowers and greens to accompany the soft and rustic feel of Rutgers Art Rudolph Sun & Shade Garden.
The celebrations continued over at the Rutgers Alumni Pavilion. We decided to maintain the natural, woodsy element of the wedding by using Manzanita branches and moss to display the seating assignments.
Suzie and Drew had the adorable idea of transforming light bulbs into bud vases to adorn the walls in the women’s bathroom.
Suzie and drew opted for long tables to create a family-style setting for the reception. We filled varying vases with an array of spring flowers in soft pinks, purples, peach, and yellow. Also on the table were potted maidenhair ferns in birch containers to provide an additional visual interest. A fresh sprig of lavender was tucked into each guests’ napkin. Suzie is a big lover of strawberries and had the great idea to place berry baskets amongst the centerpieces, coupled with homemade jams in mason jars! Finally!! A centerpiece spread that is good enough to eat!
