A Greenhouse Wedding

As springtime arrives, we put together an inspirational story for a greenhouse wedding picnic. What could be lovelier than celebrating with a few close family and friends, surrounded by orange blossoms and gorgeous greens? It's a perfect idea for those who love the outdoors but are unsure of the forecast for their springtime nuptials. With a glass roof overhead, you can enjoy the great outdoors, regardless of the weather.

 

 

 

 

 

The details: The bride wore a simple tea-length gown made from cotton piqué and just for the picnic, she added a playful gingham linen pinafore (both from Elizabeth Dye). Wellies kept her feet dry! She carried a wild bouquet of narcissus, forget-me-nots, grape hyacinth and snowdrops. The groom wore khakis and a white shirt with a floral tie (from Fieldguided) and a straw boater hat. 

 

 

 

 

A simple greenhouse filled with maidenhair ferns, lily of the valley, orange blossoms, and myrtle set the scene. We simply added a cafe table and chairs, a few wild arrangements of springtime blossoms, and a spread of easy seasonal bites. 

 

 

 

 

We made cucumber sandwiches with goat cheese on homemade rosemary sea salt baguettes. A salad of fresh peas and fennel was combined with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. French bottles were filled with basil-infused lemonade! The recipes were simple but seasonally appropriate and they also matched the color scheme!

 

 

 

 

For favors, we created seed packets filled with forget-me-not seeds and designed with the bride and groom's name. The delicate illustrations on the favors coordinate with the hand-drawn invitations (from Nisee Made). 

We hope this sweet springtime celebration will inspire your own projects and decorations!
