It’s no secret we love hearing what inspired the brides we feature on Ruffled when planning their wedding, and we couldn’t hide a squeal of happiness when we heard Stephanie’s inspiration for her big day was “Edwardian.” Picture moody color tones, dramatic floral arrangements, and a vintage inspired feast Kings would envy. Thank you to Tree of Life Films & Photography and Carr’s Florist & Gifts for your work on this beautiful day!
From the bride, Stephanie: We chose the location because we enjoy hiking in VT, and we wanted a place where our friends and family could escape for a weekend and spend real quality time together. The word that kept coming to mind when I was imagining the day was “Edwardian.” I wanted the florals to be moody, wild, and romantic. I kept picturing a sort of vintage market feast, so I decorated with figs, dripping grapes, berries, single roses and all of the vintage brass candlesticks, chalices & cut glass we’d collected. Also, I knew I wanted to wear the gloves my grandmother had handmade, and they seemed to fit with the theme.
DIY projects for the day included: 1. Escort magnets with photos of our guests. 2. MANY trips to flea markets collecting vintage brass candlesticks, chalices and cut glass. 3. We cut ivy from our backyard to use as garland for all the tables. 4. My very talented friend Molly does hand-lettering and created an exquisite mirror sign for our ceremony that we now have hanging in our dining room.
