Samantha and Travis were married at The Venue at the Grove in Phoenix, Ariz.. on September 21. The couple met through a mutual friend at an intramural flag football game in graduate school. After a year of dating, Travis proposed to her on a cliff overlooking the ocean during a surprise trip to Mexico. How romantic! Samantha wore a sweetheart ruched mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with diamond necklace, earrings, and bracelet, while her bridesmaids wore fit ‘n’ flare lace dresses. “During the ceremony, we chose to do a foot washing as our ‘unity activity,'” she said. “This was particularly meaningful to us as it represented our commitment to loving and serving one another in the way that we believe that Jesus loves us.” Guests enjoyed lawn games during cocktail hour, and the brick oven pizza that they could eat until their stomachs were full. Tables were decorated with bowls of peaches, gold glitter votives, and books. The dessert bar was filled with his and her favorites — Dippin’ Dots and chocolate glazed donuts.

DIY Wednesday: Peaches ‘n Cream Floral Centerpiece
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself, Flowers

By: Chelsea Fuss

This sweet floral centerpiece is a great way to incorporate seasonal produce into your wedding!

Flower Recipe + Supplies:

2 Peaches

2 Large Bearded Irises

3 Stems of Chervil or Queen Anne’s Lace

1 Stem of Phlox

2 Stems of Dusty Miller

3 Peonies (2 budded and one in bloom)

3 Stems of Alchemilla

White Ceramic Bowl

If you want to adjust the recipe for other flowers: use one large focal flower, 7 stems of filler flowers, 2 pieces of fruit, 2 secondary flowers and 3 stems of greenery.


Step One. Remove leaves from the lower half of the stems.  Trim the stems short and set the excess aside.  

Step Two. Take two extra stems that you have from trimming the flowers short. Poke them into the peaches and place them aside.

Step Three. Fill your bowl with water and add the two irises and some alchemilla, phlox, and dusty miller. Arrange them together in your hand so they are all the same height, trimming if necessary.  Place them in one side the bowl, bunched together, making sure the blossoms rest on the edge of the bowl.

Step Four. Add the large peony and the peaches.

Step Five. Fill in with the chervil, greens, and filler flowers.

Step Six. Keep in a cool place until ready for use. Check the water periodically.

A Sweet Southern Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

I received these photos from Paper Antler Photography (formerly Jonathan Hoffner Photography) and I just adored Michelle and Barrett’s sweet Southern style.  The wedding was set in Birmingham, Alabama, where the couple said their vows in the church, then headed to a beautiful mansion with a wrap-around porch for the party!  The decor was classic- very Martha- featuring a pink, peach, and navy color palette.  Thanks to Paper Antler for sending these over!
