Shannon K. Wendt-Heath
A boho wedding in terracotta with vintage touches at Castle Farms
Jamie was one of my brides that absolutely knew how she wanted her wedding to Greg to look. Right from the beginning we were exchanging sketches which was SO much fun! Yes, there is a lot of new technology available to wedding pros but sometimes a sketch is better! We also involved my favorite floral artist Syd from Upsy-Daisy. Her sketches made mine look like chicken scratch. Here were a few she presented to the couple to capture everything from the ceremony archway at Castle Farms, to the sweetHEART, and head and accessory tables such as the cake table.
Jamie also wanted the guest tables divided into thirds as far as centerpieces and tablescapes went: one-third was to have a floral/greenery centerpiece in a gorgeous gold compote with our gold votives, one-third had one of our vintage-style gold lanterns with mixed floral/greenery and one-third had a mix of our vintage gold candlesticks. Of course, everything was cohesive with the sweetHEART and head table having a mix of all of these. And to top it all off? The sweetheart and head table also had several of our tall gold candelabras! What a statement these make!
One of the beautiful boho elements that Jamie requested was our handmade organic cotton gauze runners in terracotta. One long piece covered the sweetheart and head tables and each guest table also had one as well. The tables all had a mix of ivory, black and terracotta taper candles. Gorgeously romantic!
Helping to plan weddings with our destination couples often involves a lot of contact, with many details to iron out. We want to ensure that each wedding looks exactly as our couples envision. And occasionally, we become quite close to them, because it isn't always just about wedding design.
With that being said, Jamie and Greg wrote me one of the most touching reviews that I have ever received! Tears...
"I can't even begin to describe how amazing Shannon is as a person and as a decorator. With planning a wedding without my mother (passed away when I was young), I was terrified to go into this process. Shannon was so kind and walked me through every step. When I say every step, I mean... every step... We exchanged hundreds of emails over a 10 month period and never once did I feel like I was annoying her. She was extremely responsive, gave great advice and always made me feel confident about my wedding. I want to add, I lived 10 hours away in a different state and still felt comfortable with Shannon decorating my wedding. Her expertise and professionalism can't be beat! For any brides who are thinking about using Shannon, I can say one thing.... DO IT! I promise you won't be disappointed. Something that is noteworthy. I wanted to see my wedding before the day of, and asked Shannon if I could meet up with her to see the process. She was busy the day before and couldn't make this happen. But just a few hours after I asked, she made it work!! :) Lastly, I cried the day before my wedding as I got to meet Shannon ( a complete stranger), but the moment I saw her, it felt like I had known her forever. Ladies and gents, that's the best way I can describe this amazing person. You will walk away with a new friend and the best wedding you could ever ask for!!! We love you Shannon and Heart Wedding Design (formerly Heart Wedding Decor)!!"
Thank you, Jamie and Greg. I cannot wait to see the two of you the next time you are in northern Michigan.
