Alix and Hamilton’s dreamy garden party wedding sang against the backdrop of rolling hills, gorgeous trees and a tranquil river. The couple wanted to create a visually striking fall celebration that captured the essence of springtime, from the invitation to the end of the night.
With a formal and fun garden party in mind, Kingston Downs’ picturesque landscape was the perfect venue fit. From the beginning, the couple had their hearts set on getting married in front of the grand oak tree at Kingston Downs, with dusty blue, blush, and white florals crawling up the tree.
While their wedding took place in the fall, the inspiration and colors strayed from typical autumnal visions. Alix initially envisioned a palette of pretty pinks and oranges for their wedding, but as her personal style embraced the grandmillennial trend, she decided to infuse blues and greens into the mix. The result? A beautifully balanced and vibrant color scheme that perfectly complements the natural beauty of the surroundings.
With a venue already blessed with picturesque scenery, the couple focused on enhancing the natural beauty around them. The choice of textured blue linens for guest tables, paired with contrasting pink florals, created a captivating visual impact. The wooden head table featured delicate blue linen napkins, adding a touch of sophistication to the celebration.
Alix’s do-it-yourself approach to signage, including invitations, displayed her commitment to cohesiveness and celebrated her artful eye. She crafted personalized signage that seamlessly integrated into the overall aesthetic.
Besides just looking oh-so-pretty, the wedding was full of sentimental touches. The flower girl dresses, handmade by Hamilton’s grandmother for his mother’s wedding, became an unexpected link between generations. Once at the altar, Hamilton’s father officiated the ceremony itself. One other unexpected but sweet touch came with the presence of ladybugs. Ladybugs, considered a symbol of good luck, became a whimsical part of the day. A swarm of these charming creatures joined the couple during photos, and instead of shooing them away, Alix and Hamilton embraced the companionship, feeling the positive energy and good fortune they brought to their wedding day.
Alix and Hamilton’s grandmillennial garden wedding was a testament to the beauty of embracing change, cherishing family traditions and finding unexpected joy in the little moments. Their celebration not only captured their love but also showcased the power of thoughtful details and personal touches.
