Woodland Gem Wedding

Jenna Engebritson (Bride) McCall, ID
We exchanged vows on September 4, 2016 in the gorgeous Idaho woods. With our families and closest friends, we celebrated our next adventure. Our incredible wedding party and families helped us create every detail of the ceremony space and reception area. From the wood rounds, to the gorgeous signs, to the wooden bow ties; this was a DIY all hands-on wedding. With this generosity, our wedding day exceeded our vision; it was beyond incredible! Keeping the woodland scenery in mind, the vision for the flower arrangements was to look organic with a nod to gem tones and whimsy. I wanted height with stock, playfulness like ranunculus and astrantia, and nostalgic touches like dahlias and spray roses. ... Since we rented an AirBnB to host our wedding, we arrived several days earlier to set up. The flowers arrived as scheduled and my MOH, mom, and family friend greeted the boxes armed with shears, gloves, an abundant amount of 5-gallon buckets, and some libations. We were ready! We then stored the buckets in the utility room where was cool and dark for the flowers to hydrate. Each day we checked in and replenished the water and arranged the flower to have more room as they bloomed. Saturday morning truckloads of friends and family arrived to help create the bouquets and centerpieces. The vision was for as many bouquets to be used around the space as possible. These bouquets came in handy for building the ceremony arch, the staircase of flowers, and other reception areas. Even my 10-year-old nephew caught the flower bug and was arranging centerpieces. The wedding day felt like magic. Our first kiss as husband and wife was in the rain that came through at the end of the ceremony. Then the storm passed, the dance floor became full, and the rest of the night turned into our “Meyer ever after.” Show more

These were INSANELY beautiful! I wanted the woodsy look to carry on from the outline forest into the tented space and these did just the trick. These looked beautiful in the table centerpieces and bridal arrangements.

Roses made for a classic staple to the eclectic flowers. The peachy pink tones looked incredible against the garland on the ceremony arch and in the centerpieces.

You really can't go wrong with eucalyptus. Not only does it have a light aroma, they are easy to work with and versatile with whatever look.

Feverfew was the perfect addition to create a woodsy wildflower look. They are easy to work with and their whimsy appeal made a fun touch to the arrangements.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres

I wasn't always clear on what I wanted to do for my floral arrangements, but from the start of planning knew that I wanted to have ranunculus in them. Quirky, romantic, and overall lovely! These were used in just about everything. The true gem tones looked perfect against the greens and other colors.

Dusty Miller Lacy Leaf Greenery ( 10 bunches, 100 Stems )

Used for: Centerpieces

These greens were used in the wooden box centerpieces and added a beautiful softness against the wood grain!

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Boutonnieres

I wanted unstructured draping greenery and this did the trick. I loved the true green color against the colors of the flower.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres

I am a huge fan of thistle! BUT My now-husband was worried about them when he saw them alone in their processing buckets. But once they were tucked in with the flowers he was wow'd at how much they make a statement.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

Lisianthus is gorgeous and a great alternative to a spray rose. The rosette blooms were incredible -silver/lavender colorings were the perfect juxtaposition to the oranges and plums.
