A Bold & Brilliant Backyard Wedding

Bridget is the sister of one of my favorite past brides, Molly. So of course I was very excited when Bridget, Molly and their mom, Mary, asked me to do Bridget’s backyard summer wedding. The ladies trusted that I would make the backyard decor look awesome, and they asked me for my opinion on all things decor–which I love! :) We ended up with the perfect summer palette of navy, hot pink and yellow and brought it into all of the flowers and decor. From the lanterns in the tent to the linens on the tables–everything was perfect! I also used a large variety of fun flowers to give the feel that the flowers could have been picked right out of the garden! I loved being a part of another Meade wedding! I love these redheaded ladies! :)

    This scene is just so fabulous — I can smell the flowers (and the pig roasting…!) The colors; different flower arrangements… and those colors…so vibrant and bright… just like those Meade babes! Beautiful job! Bridget and Patrick had a picture-perfect day! Congratulations to you both— and Brig – see that, you survived your mother through all this! Bravo!
