AFD Real Weddings | Angela & Henry 10.8.2017

I am often at the most peace when I can see nature; Any kind, really, trees, running water, a bright sunlit sky- and yesterday’s wedding views at Riverside Receptions did not disappoint. Situated just over the Fox River in downfown St. Charles, is a beautiful old brick building that can house two weddings at once, each with a private feel, and both with a stunning river view. Sadly, due to the beautiful sunshine and my poor photography skills, no photos of that view will be seen here. But if you find yourself in St. Charles, go take a peek at the site. It is truly beautiful! 

 

Speaking of beautiful, how awesome is this textured bouquet Angela chose? I really enjoyed pulling together this palette of dusty-sage greens and blues mixed with bright pops of purple and balanced out champagnes and whites. Flower types used were: snapdragons, veronica, Lacey dusty miller, ‘Sahara’ / ‘Grey Knight’ / ‘Cava’ / ‘Earl Grey’ roses, brezillia berries, Italian discus, seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus, stock, ‘pollux’ echeveria, and wax flower. I finished the bouquet with flared stems wrapped in a beautiful double-face ivory satin.

Angela and Henry said their vows to each other in the quaint courtyard just outside of their reception space. It was truly a beautiful day!

But my favorite part of my day was spending it with my mom- she came along (graciously, I might add..) to help me! Thanks, mom!
