Olivia and David’s Simple Earthy Wedding
I am happy to share with you Olivia and David’s Simple Earthy Wedding that took place at the Hilltop Wedding Center.
Our stunning bride carried a natural hand tied bouquet with individually placed white and ivory blooms that stood out against a variety of grey toned greenery and tucks of gold. The bouquet was designed in a loose and natural style with a slight oblong shape using ivory playa blanca roses, white lisianthus, white sweet peas, white astilbe, white ranunculus, olive, cinerea, silver dollar and gunni eucalyptus. Gold plumosa and pampas grass were added to accent the bouquet and the handle was wrapped with a beautiful ivory satin ribbon.
Bridesmaids carried natural hand tied bouquets, designed to perfectly match the bride’s bouquet yet still stand out against their gold or green dresses. Similar to the brides, their bouquets were designed in a loose and natural oblong style. In their hair they wore a small and delicate halo designed with a mix of eucalyptus and olive greenery with tucks of white spray roses and astilbe throughout. At their side, the adorable flower girl also wore a small and delicate halo style tie-back floral crown designed with the same flowers.
In addition to the radiant women the gentlemen looked equally as dashing. Firstly, the groom wore a small cluster of greenery, accented by a white ranunculus, a spray rose bloom, tucks of white astilbe and a touch of gold plumosa. The stem was wrapped with ivory to match the stem wrap on the bride’s bouquet. His groomsmen and ring bearer wore a small cluster of greenery, accented by a single small white spray rose bloom. The stem was also wrapped with ivory to match the stem wrap on the groom’s boutonniere.
Surrounded by the beauty of the Hilltop picturesque scenery, the ceremony boasted many floral focal points. The first eye catchers were the stunning arrangements of fresh greenery and blooms that were placed on the wine barrels provided by the venue. The arrangements full and natural bases were designed using salal, seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus greenery. Atop this, a variety of matching blooms in blush and white with touches of gold.
Next, at the end of the aisles, whitewashed wooden boxes were filled with an upright design of grasses, greenery, and florals matching those used throughout the wedding.
Stealing the show was the Hilltop archway, which was adorned with two impressive arrangements of fresh greenery and blooms that sat asymmetrically at the corner and side of the archway. Pampas grass, salal, silver dollar and cinerea eucalyptus and italian ruscus were used for the base then a variety of blooms in white and blush with tucks of gold were placed amongst the greenery.
Following the romantic ceremony, the reception’s showstoppers were the two chandeliers hung from the center of the Hilltop Tent. They were decorated with a stunning mix of fresh eucalyptus and italian ruscus greenery filled to overflowing, then accented with light and airy white blooms.
Making their second appearance, the archway arrangements from the ceremony were placed along the top of the Hilltop archway that sat behind the head table. Also making a return appearance were the aisle markers that now sat in front of the head table adding to the simple earthy décor.
Guest tables were decorated with fresh greenery garlands designed with silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus and italian ruscus. Tucked in amongst the greenery were pampas grass stems, white roses and spray rose blooms to add a floral element. Detail was added to the place settings using a single piece of italian ruscus greenery that was tied with ribbon and placed atop each napkin.
Bunches of loose eucalyptus greenery were used throughout the reception area to add to the simple earthy theme as well as add a wonderful fresh and minty scent throughout.
