Airy, open, inviting and warm, The Cordelle is a venue that feels like home as soon as you walk in the doors. You want to throw a party and invite all your closest friends and family. These sentiments inspired us to create a story for a bride who embodies these characteristics, someone who is warm, open, and finds the joy in the people around her.
Everything she does, she does with care. She spends hours dip-dying squares of muslin, imagining precious friends and family laughing and sharing a glass of sangria. A hand-lettered invitation suite is thoughtfully sent. She includes a note about the history of the venue, a little insight into her inspiration. She is the ever-caring host, who knows that handmade touch communicates her gratitude for her guests.
My friend Melissa Broadwell and I had a great time putting these flowers together. We used sage (which smells so good), pink protea, one peony, chocolate cosmos, scabiosa, ranunculus, agonis, astrantia, sweetpea and oregano for the uniquely bouquet. The lovely Jessie Early hand-lettered everything for me. Hair and makeup was done by the talented Amanda Gros. And all of it was captured so beautifully by Austin Gros. The centerpiece was featured in BRIDES magazine last month and you can see more here on Wedding Chicks!
