Currently, I am helping a bride plan her August wedding. She is a spicy little red-head who loves picnics and hanging out in parks – fully covered in sunscreen, of course!
Wanting to incorporate this love for the “manicured outdoors”, she and her fiance have decided on a Park Themed wedding.
Problem: The Wedding is in August. In Georgia – also known as HotLanta for a reason.
Solution: Bring the Outdoors in. The ceremony will take place at Kimball Hall and the reception will be held in a huge auditorium-like church.
The Plan: Rent some large potted trees to place around the perimeter of the room. We’ll be bringing in a “park backdrop” to create a focal point, lots of outdoor cafe string lights, and individual picnic baskets filled with deliciousness . Voila! A park!
One of my favorite details of the wedding will be our interpretation of the “Candy Jar Bar”. In true outdoorsy fashion we will be presenting the guests with a “Make-your-own Trail Mix Bar” during the cocktail hour. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!!
I will be sure to post after the wedding, but for now, may your interest be piqued by their engagement photo:
