The floral design inspiration for this intimate cabin wedding came from our mutual love for the natural beauty of the Ozark Mountains. Both Ashleigh, the bride, and myself, are Arkansas natives. We adore the biodiversity of our state and how untouched her National Forests remain. While partnering with Ashleigh, we envisioned a ceremony that highlighted Arkansas seasonal blooms. It just so happened that her favorite tree is a Dogwood and her selected wedding date fell perfectly for when they were to bloom.
The foraged Dogwood blooms and native vines became the highlight for her ceremony arch and garland. In addition, locally grown flowers from Northwest Arkansas farmers were the focal point of her bridal and bridesmaid bouquets. For the final touch, the bouquets were wrapped in plant dyed silk ribbon. Guest tables were adorned with vases of a myriad of recycled glass with different shapes and textures.
What I truly loved about how this wedding came together is the beautiful blend between the ceremony atmosphere into the forest backdrop. It was a gracious nod to Mother Earth and her natural beauty. The humble details created a relaxed atmosphere that catered to an intimate celebration with close family and friends.
