The bride stuns in a rose-covered, lace ball gown with sweetheart neckline (Allure Bridals, Style C549, Bliss Bridal) and cathedral-length veil (Bliss Bridal).
The groom is eye-catching in an ivory fitted coat, anchored by classic black pants and accessories (Ike Evening by Ike Behar, Francia’s Formal Affair).
The groom’s boutonniere (Wildflower Floral Designs) is a simple beaut.
White gold is the metal of choice for the couple’s rings. The bride’s engagement ring features a center emerald cut diamond, while her band has alternating round brilliant and baguette diamonds (Zundel’s Jewelry). The groom’s band has a masculine hammered finish (Zundel’s Jewelry).
Modern letterpress invitations set the tone for the celebration, featuring velum embossed with gold leaves (Soirée Signatures).
The gazebo at The Fairhope Inn, decorated with swaths of fabric and copious greenery and flowers, including cherry blossoms (Wildflowers by Design), is a swoon-worthy place to say “I do.” Spoil guests with comfortable gold Chameleon chairs with blush-colored cushions (SOHO Events & Rentals).
Jars of snapdragons, rose-filled centerpieces, candles and pops gold (Wildflower Floral Designs) complete the lush tablescape.
Place settings of gold-toned utensils, Bella Vita Nest Coupe and Vitraluxe plates, gold-trimmed chargers, vintage-inspired glassware and monogrammed napkins (SOHO Events & Rentals) are almost too pretty to use.
The bride isn’t the only one blushing! This blush-colored couch (SOHO Events & Rentals) is a fabulous place for guests — and the wedding party — to kick back and relax. The bridesmaid is pretty in pink in a simple and classic chiffon A-line gown (Bill Levkoff, Bliss Bridal).
Blush gold geometric earrings are the only statement piece the bridesmaid needs (SWAY).
Soft shades of pink and white ranunculus, David Austin roses and spirea spill forth from bouquets bundled with silk ribbons (Wildflower Floral Designs). Sprigs of greenery provide that just-picked-from-the-garden look.
A three-tier, buttercream frosted cake (Pollman’s Bake Shop) decorated with cascading snapdragon and ranunculus blooms (Wildflowers Floral Design) is a beautifully delicious way to end a meal.
