I am primarily a photographer but for this wedding I provided event coordination and floral services. I of course brought my camera along to show you the elements of the vintage travel themed wedding that was held at the Historic McFarland House in downtown Fort Worth. The amazing cakes and “adam bombs” were provided by Stir Crazy Baked Goods. Catering and servers were provided by All In Good Taste Catering.
For the Bride’s bouquet she wanted a more organic arrangement in all white. I chose star of Bethlehem, stock, freesia, queen anne’s lace and green coffee berries. This made for an amazingly fragrant bouquet! The stems were wrapped in the sleeve of the mother of the bride’s wedding dress. I made her do the actual cutting. I was not about to be the one to cut up someone else’s wedding dress!
To set the scene for the outdoor reception we set up cocktail tables and seating area with travel trunks used as coffee tables. On each table we placed a cluster of different sized and shaped vases and bottles filled with wildflower stems. These included sunflowers, pink wax flower, yellow sollidago, purple larkspur, explosion grass, coffee berries, queen anne’s lace & pink bullets.
The bride’s cake was coconut chocolate chip cake, coconut butter cream frosting topped with chocolate ganache. Spiced chai latte cake and “adam bombs” for the groom completed the dessert table.
The heavy hors d’oeuvres included goat cheese & apple canapes, marinated basil & mozzarella skewers, Italian meats & cheeses and baba ghannoush with pita chips.
To send the couple off at the end of the night the guests carried lanterns to light the pathway and waved handkerchiefs that read “Bon Voyage!”
