A Dusty Blue and Sage Green Beachside Wedding at The Boathouse on Lake Charlevoix

And later? We also added little pops of cream and blush used in unique ways.


It all started when the groom's mom reached out to us because as Alexa, the bride, put it to us: "I don't have an eye for design..."


When most of my couples come to me, they have an idea of color palette and perhaps the feel they are going for, but their biggest struggle is how to pull everything together. And I assured them that is my job.

Alexa and Michael wanted a romantic garden party. One that starred lots of lush floral and greenery, set up on our modern gold stands. Sydney from @upsy-daisy knocked the arrangements out of the park! The sweetheart and guest tables each had our handmade cotton gauze runners and linen napkins with everything set atop our soft cream tablecloths.


The couple also wanted a lot of hanging elements, such as glass globe terrariums and our dusty blue lanterns. We hung them from a tree at the venue and a couple of the globes on our over-the-table gold rod that was on the sweetheart table. Also adding a pop of whimsy were our capiz shell votive candle holders in white, blush, dusty blue and sage green. For Alexa, these elements were a must!



And as someone with a pretty fair hand with paints, we handmade place cards for the guests with a hand-mixed sage green watercolor paint and gold embossing on cream cards.

While the bride may have claimed she had no eye for design, the elements that she wanted were more than beautiful, they went together splendidly, and as her guests mentioned many times throughout the day, "... it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to".


And as I told Alexa and Michael (and Michael's mom), this was a TEAM effort. The "A-Team".
