When a bride says she's been collecting glass bottles for months and wants an un-fussy, look filled with flowers that could have just been picked from a garden, you know her wedding is going to turn into a low-key party that is a good time for everyone! Based on the photos I've seen on Facebook from Michelle & Justin's wedding this past Friday evening, I know that everyone had a great time celebrating on their wedding day.
Michelle is amazing. I've met her a few times at different events, parties & weddings. I believe I even danced with her at her new brother-in-law's wedding (another LML couple, Jen & Seth!) this past fall. Of the few times we've been at the same functions together, she has always been so sweet. When she had inquired about wedding flowers earlier this year, I was so happy. Michelle & Justin, I am so happy that you chose LML to help with your wedding centerpieces.
Michelle & Justin exchanged vows on a beautiful sunshine-filled day. The ceremony took place in Lewes, DE at Canal Front Park. Their reception followed immediately afterwards and was held at Irish Eyes Pub & Restaurant. The banquet room upstairs at Irish Eyes has a spectacular view that overlooks Canal Front Park, a large marina and the canal leading to the bay and ocean. It was the perfect location for an ocean-loving girl and her waterman to get married.
The banquet room at Irish Eyes was filled with round tables set in ivory linens. Each table was centered around a miscellaneous grouping of colorful, eclectic bottles filled with a few stems of flowers and greenery. On a trip to Lewes a fews weeks ago, I made a mental note that the town's gardens were filled with purple allium plants and large bushes of pink spray roses. Those two flowers made an appearance on each table as an effort to unite the outside gardens with Michelle & Justin's wedding centerpieces. Pale pink peonies, coral sweet peas, red anemones, yellow solidago & white daisies filled the rest of the bottles.
Kelly's KupKakes of DE prepared and displayed a delicious selection of cupcakes. A small sweetheart cake was placed on top of a wooden crab cage to add to the nautical feel. Small flower arrangements surrounded the cupcakes.
Michelle made her own bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets and after seeing photos of this stunning bride, I was happy to know that she chose to include some of the same flowers and colors in her bouquet as I had chosen for her centerpieces.
Wishing you two the best of times in Mexico and a lifetime of happiness! See you again soon, Mr. & Mrs. Hetherington!
