A Garden-Party Wedding with Lavish Florals at Laurel Hall

Grace and Adler held their mid-summer, garden-party wedding at Laurel Hall in Carmel, Indiana. The venue dates back to 1910 and still features century-old art, chandeliers, and structures. It is a personal favorite of mine, due to the charm at every turn and floors full of history.

The couples’ florals were one of a kind, quite literally, as florist Bluebell House Flowers grows the blooms in her garden. The bride explained that the main flower in her bouquet, a Cosmo, was selected because Bluebell’s designer felt it “encapsulated Grace’s personality in floral form.”

What really tied together the garden-party aesthetic was the floral runners livening each side of their aisle-way. At the end of the aisle was a lush floral display surrounding their communion table. Imagine walking down a meadow of florals to marry the love of your life!

Grace’s bridesmaids were all encouraged to select a dress that fell within the mauve or blush palette of all different styles. Her maid of honor is pictured in a floral tiered midi dress. The bride’s Jenny Yoo crepe gown was chosen at Blue House Bridal Boutique. The men opted for a classic approach to their attire, wearing black suites and bowties. 

The couple’s invitation suite tied into the rich historic vision as each paper good was created with a letterpress. In addition to the stationery, Grace and Adler wrote personalized letters to each of their guests. 

Love was truly in the air through the entire celebration, and contagiously translates in their wedding imagery.
