From the photographer, Caroline Ghetes: When Andrew signed one of his very first emails to me with “I hope this finds you, Alin, and the children smiling more than frowning and enjoying our gift of life as much as possible!”, I knew I liked him. After 10 months of emails, we met for the very first time on the wedding morning. I was greeted with one of those hugs where you don’t want to let go it was so cuddly. In my personal life, I love to surround myself with people who are creative and can laugh about anything. Andrew is a ridiculously talented photographer in Charleston. But the best part about him is his ability to light up a room with his smile and his witty banter and jokes. Then there’s Ashley, owner of yesUmay cookie shop and Cose Belle in Charleston. This girl can bake AND dress! She’s a beautiful, creative fashionista. She likes to jump. A lot. And she likes to laugh. A LOT. And what was real endearing was watching her laugh at everything that came out of Andrew’s mouth. Some people get tired of their spouse’s same jokes over and over again, but not Ashley. She just lets Andrew be Andrew, and loves him for it. Throughout the day, I would catch Andrew just looking at Ashley, without her knowing. And I could see how much he truly loved her. And he never failed to tell her he loved her that day. Over and over again. The best part of the entire day for Alin & I was when, during the ceremony, Ashley was all choked up on her words, and Andrew stopped everything, turned her around to face her family and friends, hugged her from behind and reminded her of everyone who was there. That they were all there because they loved her and cared. Being around Andrew & Ashley’s friends and family that day made me realize how much these two were, in fact, loved. Their friends were loyal to them. In fact, most all of their wedding day vendors were their friends!

Snowberries Floral Arrangements

Wedding Design

Today Honey of a Thousand Flowers is introducing us the cutest little addition to our library of Bridal Blooms: snowberries! They look as whimsical as their name, and versatile like a LBD of florals. We’d love to see them starring in a gorgeous bouquet of muted hues, or in a colorful cheery arrangement! I’ll leave you with the expert, Sarah Winward:

From Sarah Winward: Contradictory to their name, snowberries are not usually available in the winter. Snowberries are available August-November, and are occasionally found in the spring too. They have clusters of berries spaced all along their thin woody stems. The berries are fairly soft and can be crushed if they fall off of the stem. When they do they pop the sound is somewhat like a cranberry. Fortunately the flesh of the berries is white so you don’t have to worry as much about them staining dresses or tablecloths as you do with dark colored berries.

I think snowberries can very easily be mixed into any style flowers. I love their foggy white color with greens alone. They are a fun textural element to add to bigger, focal flowers as accents. They can be rustic, modern, or simple sweet depending on the colors and flowers you mix them with.

Utah Wedding Beneath the Trees

DIY Weddings

This Utah wedding is chock-full of handmade details so sweet they’ll tug at your heart strings. The day was perfectly captured by photographer Jessica Janae, and sent by the gorgeous bride herself, Ashton. To celebrate her hubby’s Japanese heritage, they folded hundreds of paper cranes, which hung from a willow tree – making for the perfect ceremony backdrop.


Utah Wedding Beneath the Trees

From the bride: I always dreamed of having a simple late summer wedding. After seeing Forrest Gump when I was seven years old, I always wanted a wedding like Forrest and Jenny’s. Simple, yet beautiful. I wanted a very homemade, cozy, relaxed vibe at the wedding. We decided to fold 500 paper cranes to include my husband’s Japanese heritage in the celebration. We strung and attached them to an old curtain rod and hung them in the big willow tree we were married under. It was so special to have that symbol of love in front of us while we were saying our vows.

For the reception we laid a bunch of quilts out underneath the trees and put games out for the kids to play. I wanted a really informal wedding so I thought a sort of picnic themed reception would be perfect. We had sandwiches, sun chips, veggies and hummus, fresh fruit, and fruit tarts. We also served old fashioned coke and root beer. I wanted a lot of little cakes instead of one big cake.

For the favors we took two tulip bulbs and wrapped them in burlap and tied them with a string. I loved the fact that our guests could be reminded of our special day every spring. We did the flowers ourselves. My family and friends arranged them in old wine and whiskey bottles as the center pieces. I made my bouquet the morning of the wedding with flowers from my mom’s backyard.
