I met Nikole in January at the Palace Bridal Show. During our initial consultation Nikole mentioned the most fabulous items – succulents, craspedia, scabiosa, dusty miller and tweedia all came up in our first conversation. Talk about music to my ears! It was just the kind of wedding I had been looking to do – soft and natural with lots of interesting botanical details.
Nikole’s bouquet was bursting with texture. It had dark blue and light blue delphinium, blue scabiosa, tweedia, pale blue hydrangea, pieris, tuberose, Cream Prophyta roses, seeded eucalyptus, silver tree, wormwood, and succulents. Whew, that’s a dozen different items!
The bridesmaids bouquets were sweet and simple with craspedia, Creamy Eden spray roses, cream prophyta roses, light yellow freesia and a hint of tweedia.
At this point in time, you may notice Nikole and Eric’s subtle maize and blue color scheme. The bride and groom both graduated from University of Michigan.
The sweet wrist corsages for the mothers had Creamy Eden spray roses, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus
Nikole and Eric share a laugh during the ceremony. I believe that the Reverend was questioning their decision to hold the ceremony on game day! I just take it as proof that Nikole and Eric are very serious about this union! The ceremony was held at the Commerce United Methodist Church.
As you may imagine, I attend a lot of weddings every year. One of my favorite details from their ceremony was the trumpeter that preformed along with the organist. It was such a thoughtful addition to the ceremony, and it was the first time I had experienced it. It felt so Princess Di – just magical!
Isn’t Nikole just stunning?! A few post ceremony shots and it’s off to the Finnish Cultural Center to celebrate! If you’re looking to book this venue, be sure to get ahold of Laura, the caterer. She is super accommodating and incredibly helpful!
The centerpieces were so fun to make! I imagined them as little woodland gardens, complete with moss and succulent florets.
Congratulations Nikole and Eric!
