Real Wedding Wednesday: The Greenbrier, Wedding of Succulents and Pearl

Sarah and Ted’s wedding at The Greenbrier in West Virginia was replete with swirls of desaturated greens and blues that paired exquisitely with the outdoors atmosphere of the venue. Our gorgeous bridesmaids all swathed in gowns of pale pearl supported their bride both in spirit and through aesthetics. Classic bouquets of greenery and white were embellished with red beaded berries and fresh succulents, bringing in just the right amount of visual vibrancy while retaining an overall revitalizing and organic quality. Thanks to the talents of Hope Taylor Photography, we get glimpses of how truly joyous this special day was for all in attendance!



The subtle visual effects of the event were graced by warm sun rays, but none of this would have been in the first place without prior preparation from our trusty team of vendors! Thanks to all who contributed to the success of Sarah and Ted’s wedding day! We definitely look forward to working together again in the future!
