April 2017 Wedding Wednesday: Karley & Tayler {Part 1}

Karley & Tayler were married on a bright November day at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth, Minnesota. Karley used to work at our shop & we couldn't have been more excited for her wedding. With Karley's artistic style & Tayler's love for the outdoors, we knew this wedding would be one for the books! From the ladies wearing hair crowns paired with cozy sweaters over their gorgeous dresses, the ax groomsmen gifts & Karley's epic hair straight out of the Little Mermaid {hair goals} -- we are still in awe of the love & magic of that day. So many personal elements were incorporated into this wedding including letterpress invitations made by the bride {who happens to be a kick-ass graphic designer--she also designed our logo--thanks, doll}. There wasn't a dry eye during the ceremony--trust us, we were there.

We had an absolute blast selecting the perfect blooms for our girl. We met numerous times discussing all of the details & came up with just the look. Dusky smokebush, lush peonies, ranunculus, scabiosa, a variety of eucalyptus, rose-hips, dusty miller, hanging amaranthus, fall foliage, & heavy on the roses {in honor of the bride's middle name} made up the bride's stunning bouquet. The bridesmaid bouquets consisted of copious amounts of greenery {including a staff favorite: carolina sapphire} coordinating with the free-form & organic styling of the bride's bouquet.

Featured Wedding: June 2015

The shores of Lake Superior at Lutsen Resort were the perfect backdrop for Matt and Lacy's October vows. Every detail, from the chandeliers to the fur coats, enhanced the woodsy and rustic feeling of their special day. The bouquets, bouts, and centerpieces consisted of pheasant feathers, blackberry, privet berry, assorted ferns, lush black & cafe au lait dahlias, and gilded succulents. Bella Vita beautifully captured the couple as they started a new chapter. Check out more of the gorgeous details below!

This gorgeous & crazy-in-love pair made the most inspirational models. It was also the perfect way to celebrate the passage of the same-sex marriage amendment in Minnesota, which we are all about here at Saffron & Grey! BONUS - There was also a yurt, beer, & the couple’s stunningly beautiful canine, Monet.
