Consider your venue.
Tall and elaborate centerpieces look great in a hotel ballroom, but would completely overwhelm a wine cellar. Before you decide on any floral arrangements, make sure to consider the size and layout of your venue first.

Use images to communicate more than specifics.
It’s tempting to just point to a pretty picture and ask a florist to recreate the image. But you will probably…

And, that combination is just the ticket for my kind of wedding.

Happy Tuesday! Here is a little flashback to an awesome autumn wedding we featured several months ago by Jenna Walker Photography!
It wasn’t too long ago that we featured a mountain wedding, but when Lauren and Tony’s wedding by Jenna Walker Photography came across my desk I knew that I had to share it. Whereas Katie and Nick’s wedding was all about classic detailing, Lauren and Tony’s has a sense of rustic elegance that perfectly fits the wide-open spaces of their venue. (Full editorial disclosure: An owner of Devil’s Thumb Ranch is an investor in mywedding.com).
