Greenery Filled Wedding Ideas

Personally, I’ve been so thrilled to see the recent reemergence of the fern. It’s always a bit of a “jackpot” moment when we come across something that’s low-cost and yet high-impact, and the fern absolutely fits that bill. Arina B Photography set to work styling some wedding inspiration filled to the brim with greenery and focusing on the wonders of nature – and we have to say it’s pretty much perfection.

From the photographer and stylist, Arina B Photography: Before there were any buildings, churches and venues, there was always never ending forests – forest became my inspiration for this styled shoot. When surrounded by so much greenery and nature not much decorating is needed — simplicity is the beauty. Moss and green plants for centerpiece came from local gardening store. All the glass items were collected over time from vintage stores. When planning a vintage wedding it’s always a great idea to start shopping early and attend garage sales and vintage markets often – this will save brides tons of money.

My bride wore summer dress from local store called Melrose in OC, I love how simple and relaxing it looked, I really think brides do need to look into the dresses that are not falling off or making them feeling uncomfortable. As a photographer I constantly get to deal with brides fixing their dresses during very pretty moments that could have been a beautiful photo. I really liked to think about our environment, there is why everything in this shoot was environment friendly materials – from recyclable wedding invites to string around bride’s bouquet. So even if something was left behind after the shoot it will do no harm to the nature. Save the planet for future generations.”

Glen Venue Wedding

Photos By: Flora + Fauna

Wedding portraits in an abandoned greenhouse – be still, my beating heart. After their portraits, Becky and Jose made their way to their ceremony site under the trees, where they exchanged vows before dancing the night away with friends and family. Flora + Fauna was on hand to document every moment, each detail prettier than the next!

From the bride, Becky: Our vision was for our wedding to be a reflection of who we are. We wanted our wedding to be a comfortable and welcoming experience for all our guest. We envisioned a romantic wedding outside in the fresh air on a beautiful piece of property surrounded by our family and close friends. We were married on the property of The Glen Venue at the Linwood House. It was a beautiful house that dates back to the late 1800s, sitting on a huge piece of property with blooming camellias and an orange grove full of fruit. We were married under a row of gorgeous magnolia trees with white fabric swaying in the trees, while standing on a hand woven rug that Jose’s parents had purchased many years ago while in Turkey. We asked one of our closest friends to officiate our nuptials which made the ceremony feel very intimate and special for us.

The flowers were one of the most important décor elements for me. I wanted free flowing and natural arrangements with dark burgundy, purples of all shades with accents of white and pink. The day before the wedding my dear friend and I went to a local farm (Down to Earth) to pick up the Zinnias that were used. The loropetalum came from my yard and the rest were from a wholesale florist in town. I splurged on flowers like garden and spray roses and saved money by using the loropetalum and other greenery like Silver Dollar Eucalyptus and Plumosa Fern.

We wanted to be involved in every little detail, hand crafted by us, our family and our friends. Everything at our wedding was DIY which made it so special and heartfelt. The six months leading to the wedding I hunted for containers for the flower arrangements and flatware to be used for our guest. The place settings at our sweetheart table were all things I had collected over the years. I refinished furniture that was used as our cake table and beverage bar. Jose and his brother built the bar out of pallets and reclaimed wood. Jose and I designed our invitations and paper goods. My mom crocheted all the hanging jars throughout the venue and made the shawl I wore. My close friends played a huge role in the setup of the day and making sure everything was beautiful. From the flowers to the day of coordinating, without them our wedding would not have been what we had envisioned. Our cakes and catering were even done by our friend’s parents. It was definitely a family affair! I worked closely with friends and family setting up the venue to the very moment I had to stop and get ready for the big day. I turned over the rest of my décor duties and trusted everything would turn out as beautiful as I imagined which it did. When Jose and I walked out of the house as they pronounced us husband and wife it was so much to take in, we are very grateful to everyone that helped and made our wedding dream come true.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My biggest piece of advice I would give any couple planning their wedding would be to enjoy the process. We were engaged for only 6 short months but those months leading to our big day were magical and so much fun. Our family and friends put together some really fun gatherings for us. There was so much excitement it the air and although there were some big decision still to be made, we tried our best to take full advantage of it. So as hard as it may be at times try to go with the flow and soak in every little moment.

From the bride, Carolyn: Our ceremony was outdoors, and the reception was in the barn all at Santa Margarita Ranch. We wanted a relaxed, casual atmosphere, and most importantly, for everyone to have fun. We were going for a rustic chic theme, but with lots of color! We had corals, yellows, greens, pinks, lavender, and orange all involved.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Have fun, and don’t sweat the small stuff. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help! Our wedding party jumped at the chance to help anywhere they could, and both of our mom’s were super supportive. Each mom was able to put their special touch into the decorations-my mom sewed pillow covers for our hay bale couches, and my mother-in-law made sure everyone stayed cool in the hot weather by provided parasols and battery powered fans.
