Nectar & Root

backyard calais wedding

I love when the ceremony is a main point of decoration for couples. It implies a focus on the romance and the vows; the fundamentals of what each marriage is born from. When Rachael came to me with images of the Old West Church in Calais, we were so excited to create an overhead installation for her. Spanish moss, olive branches, eucalyptus, amaranth, garden roses and dahlias hung from the rafters. Sweet local blooms such as zinnias made an appearance in her sherbert inspired bouquet, and all the details came together beautifully for this September celebration. Rachael opted to DIY her own centerpieces, which worked seamlessly with the rest of our designs. Together it was an amazing collaboration!  Rachael's Dress: Leanne Marshall | Jordan's Suit: Michael Kehoe | Rings: Starling | Catering: Jimmy Kennedy | Dessert: Birchgrove Baking | Hair: Jessica Murphy | Makeup: Elizabeth England | Photography: Jennifer Marcuson Sweet Nothings
