Summer Lovin…

Summer is one of our favorite seasons for weddings; who doesn’t love the colors, flowers, and especially the weather? We’ve hand-selected our favorite trends for you to bring a little sunshine and summer into your nuptials! Take a look below at some ideas for how to bring this trend to life at your wedding.

BRUNCH! Who doesn’t love breakfast snacks at a wedding? Morning weddings have become more popular with the brunch food trend emerging as enticing for millennials (and most of the time they are cheaper!). Include a donut spread or a pancake bar to let your guests get the hands on feeling of creating their own meal.

Rosé Cocktails

Real Wedding Wednesday: Jim & Liz

Every week we will now be featuring one of our amazing Dandelion Patch couples and their Real Wedding! We are so excited to start off our Real Wedding feature with Liz and Jim. 

Planning: Atrendy Wedding | Photographer: Elizabeth Fogarty | Venue: Woodend Sanctuary | Catering: Corcoran Caterers | Flowers: Toulies en Fleur

The invitation suite that we designed for Liz and Jim was creative and simple, and matched their venue and theme perfectly! This gorgeous picture highlights everything we loved about the suite! Congrats to Liz and Jim.

Elizabeth and James - Elizabeth Fogarty

 Their Woodend Sanctuary wedding had some absolutely beautiful details, and we loved the soft and simple color palette. 



Their venue was so beautiful, that it only needed minimal (and oh so pretty) decor to let the natural beauty shine through! 11218872_505812369566864_7067033848411636979_n

We can’t stop staring at all of the gorgeous flowers in this wedding! The added greenery makes the blooms even more beautiful than they already are.



Congratulations to Liz and Jim!


We love seeing our Patch Couples happily married, and can never get enough of their gorgeous pictures.
