allison + stu lake house wedding

Remember the inspiration board I shared here?  Allison and Stu wanted their day to be unique, relaxed and most importantly… a lot of fun!  A lake house clubhouse served as the gorgeous backdrop for their family and friends to gather and celebrate their love.  Allison wanted the wedding decor to fit with the natural setting, but we wanted to add a whimsical touch.  We used birch wood vases, burlap, a family collection of jars and organic flower arrangements designed by Artisan Flowers to dress the tables.  But we couldn’t stop there… Allison and I, with the help of a few friends, made a bunch of paper pinwheels to stick in the flower arrangements and wood directional signs.  Her bridesmaids all wore different yellow dresses and carried DIY baby’s breath bouquets.  Another special touch was that Allison and her dad made their entrance to the ceremony by boat!  And if you want even more proof that this couple had a blast at their wedding… check out the pictures where they ended the evening IN the swimming pool, wedding dress and all!  Thanks so much to Wedding Chicks for featuring this wedding here!

    I really liked this wedding. It looked very relaxing. The venue, decorations (pinwheels are a really unique idea), and flowers are all very pretty! Great job!
