Annie and Rick had such a unique and thoughtful wedding in Carthage, Missouri on a warm June afternoon. The temps were slightly cooler than usual for their outdoor nuptials, and the flowers were on point. Vibrant summer reds and oranges with wild foliage was the name of the game for this couple’s gorgeous day.
The wedding and reception took place at Civil War Ranch, so named for the Civil War battles that took place very near to there. The ranch itself is over 100 years old, and was restored by the owners to host weddings and gatherings in various locations and vignettes throughout their property. A wonderful location for a woodsy wedding in Southwest, Missouri.
The ceremony site featured a huge, old tree as the main focus which made for such a picturesque ceremony location. The couple wanted a large floral installation incorporating the tree to further highlight the beauty of the outdoor venue, so we created a climbing vine-like piece with a playful shape and summer flowers throughout. The movement of the installation mimicking the tree’s form made for a beautiful backdrop.
Arrangements with coordinating wedding blooms lined the aisles for a magical space to tie the knot. A bit of summer, mixed with textural elements, and a slight tropical vibe to create a unique aesthetic true to Annie and Rick.
After the ceremony, guests gathered on the outdoor patio for an intimate meal at a single family-style table with bistro lights twinkling above them. An earthy garland lined the center of the tables with dancing blooms in amber bud vases peppered throughout. The perfect summer ambiance for a special night with family and friends.
