Kelly was an O.T.C. bride. Which means that she was a client that was “open to creativity.” When we get a client like this, we interview them to figure out what their style is. Work within their budget to create a trend-setting look that they will love. We then approach their wedding design more like a photo shoot than a typical wedding. O.T.C. clients don’t know exactly what they are going to get, so there is a trust factor involved. But O.T.C clients always get more than what they pay for, because when we do jobs like this, the creativity abounds.
We knew that Kelly liked vintage things. You name it she liked it. Vintage bottles, and vintage books were all up her alley. She got married at Holman Ranch, which is a perfect backdrop to this style of wedding. Surrounded by rolling country hills, Holman Ranch is a great example of where wedding design is going these days. Old barn like structures situated in the middle of nature.
For this wedding we also played with glass terrariums as we created little worlds of flowers encapsulated by glass. Incorporating antiques, such as scales for the centerpieces and rustic wooden boxes that were used as risers in the place card table gave this wedding another dimension of design. Doing weddings like this takes time to collect all the right design elements, ensuring that the look is cohesive throughout the whole event.
This wedding was eclectic but it flowed together nicely. It’s one of those weddings that look easier then they are. Tinkering with each vignette and adding labels to old bottles proved time consuming, but in the end it paid off. We put together a look that I believe will inspire many brides and grooms to come.
