Ok kids- if you could have seen Whitney's dress you would be smitten just as I am! It was gorgeous! It had a very vintage, golden screen elegance to it, and looked like it could have belonged to her Grandmother but it was brand new. I wish I had a picture of it but I doubt a photo would do it justice.
Whitney has to be the most easy-going, laid-back bride ever! She had a playful design style- she wanted a country chic meets casual vintage elegance. Sounds impossible but not really. The one thing that she requested was to have feathers in the flowers because she had bird themed accessories to add to her outdoor afternoon reception. Her color palette was Burgundy, Tiffany Blue, and Chocolate Brown. I regret to say that her specific feather request could not be brought to fruition- I searched for weeks and could not find one source in Utah or the US that had bleached peacock feathers, and I couldn't bear to spend $40 on a dozen feathers and another $20 to have them shipped here. She didn't mind though and the alternative that I offered worked out well. As I said, she was incredibly easy-going!

I had so much fun putting together this buffet piece.

Thank you Whitney for letting me help with your flowers! The day was gorgeous, you were beautiful, and you and Brian are just too cute together! He's more smitten with you than I am with your dress, and that's pretty darn smitten. Congratulations to the two of you!
