I love this time of year. That Indian Summer time of year. I am relishing any moment to soak in the sun because I know these days will soon be shortened.
Fall weddings are fun and gorgeous and full of rich color and texture. But I’m not quite ready to let go of Summer weddings where colorful peonies, dahlias and roses are a plenty!
Janina is a make up artist for Dana Bartone and company. She did the make up for one of our brides last season and told me she was getting married in Mystic. So naturally, we met and discussed her flowers.
I just adored this couple! Janina and Chad have been together for quite some time and I loved hearing their story. Of course, Janina and I have the wedding world in common but Chad is actually the pretty well known underground rapper Apathy. Check out his FB page here. We had a blast talking about the hip hop scene and his influences.
When we met, she had all sorts of beautiful inspiration images as references. I loved the direction it was going.
The bouquets were so colorful, full of texture and some of our favorite Summer flowers! Peonies, garden roses, anemones, dahlias, astilbe were all the focal flowers. Janina carried a softer version with anemones popping out against the blush and ivory. Her maid’s carried bright pink garden roses, peach garden roses, pink peonies and dahlias with streamers of peach, nude and hot pink ribbons. Adore!
Centerpieces were leaflined cylinder vases with mounds of the same flowers along with hydrangeas and dusty miller.
By the way, can you believe Janina did her own make up and some of the gals too? She is stunning already but she looked absolutely gorgeous on wedding day!
Andrew Henderson captured this couple so perfectly. Thank you for sharing Andrew!
Thank you Janina and Chad for sharing your day with us. Loved getting to know you and wishing you so much love.
