Pieris Japonica + Art Nouveau Ideas

Flower Guide

Honey of a Thousand Flowers is showcasing pieris japonica, which may be my favorite flower! Its soft shape in subdued hues compliment nearly any bouquet, and its dreamy and romantic look left us swooning over an Art Nouveau inspired wedding in blush pink, aqua and gold. Thank you Heather Nan for the lovely images!

From Sarah: Pieris have my heart. The blooms resemble that of lily of the valley, they are small bell shapes. They are romantic, yet structured and geometric-a perfect balance if you ask me. I imagine them in the hair or arms of a maiden in a Mucha paintings. They would look gorgeous in a glamorous art deco or Art Nouveau inspired wedding. They are gorgeous in both bouquets and centerpieces because the blooms cascade down from the main stem. Often times they have a pink tint on the bloom.

They are in season in the spring, February-April and also in September-October.

I imagine them being used in a Art Deco or Art Nouveau inspired wedding. It would be a glamorous affair held in a building who’s architecture was inspired by the Deco movement. A color palette incorporating mostly neutrals with gold, copper, and olive for accents. Silk dresses and headbands for the bridesmaids and, a jeweled flapper inspired dress for the bride. Structured and geometric designs for the invitations and maybe cake decoration would be a great juxtaposition to the flowing dresses and cascading Pieris flowers.

DIY Howell, Michigan Wedding

Vintage Weddings

I am always giddy to see what Abdi of Three Photographers has in store for us each time I hear from him. To curb my excitement, let’s get straight to the point. Christina and Mike’s farm wedding was a vegan fete filled with delicious handmade touches. And if you had any doubts about brides wearing glasses, Christina’s stylish look may very well convince you how gorgeous they look!

From Christina: Choosing the venue was a natural choice – Mike’s sister’s family lives on the beautiful farm and we knew right away it would be the perfect setting for both the ceremony and the reception. They live out in the country in Howell, Michigan. The only thing we had to rent was the tent (the barn was too small for the number of guests we had, though we did use it for the bar/hangout area) and tables/chairs.

Given the setting and our own aesthetic sense, we had a vintage-rustic wedding in mind to fit the mood of the horses, chickens, barns and fields of goldenrod that were our backdrop. We wanted to make sure the feel of our wedding was joyous and celebratory; we wanted every one of our guests to have fun.

We had a rustic countryside look to the wedding, with vintage personal touches like woodland-creature salt & pepper shakers, a tandem bike and hand-painted signs. The color palette was a mason-jar blue, goldenrod yellow and burlap brown. Most every detail of the wedding was DIY; we handmade the invites, bouquets, boutonnieres, signs, bunting, programs, cake-topper… almost everything!

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Think of the things that you and your bride/groom love and go from there – and don’t let anyone tell you what you’re “supposed” to do and not do! People want to see the you in your wedding. You won’t regret a thing if you stay true to yourself. Also, buy a short dress – hemming is a racket.

Wedding Songs:

The wedding party came down the aisle to an instrumental (and very pretty) “Vitamin C” by Can. My entrance song was Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie”, and the recessional was “Alone Again Or” by Love (also instrumental). Our first dance was “I Was Made to Love Her” by Stevie Wonder (chosen by my fiancee).
