Be Colorful: The groom’s blue leather brogues coordinated with his tie, which was made in his family’s tartan.
Travel in Style: A vintage bus was as pic-turesque (hello, photo op!) as it was practical.
Pre-Pour Drinks: Arnold Palmers awaited guests on the porch before the ceremony, eliminating the expense of extra servers.
Work with Whatcha Got: A friend arranged blooms from Whole Foods and greens from her yard in flea-market vases that sat atop heirloom hankies from the bride’s family.
Go Symbolic: In homage to their Thai honeymoon (and visit to an elephant sanctuary there), pachyderms topped the wedding pie. Peaches gave sweet (and edible) style to tabletops, and home garden clippings filled out arrangements of grocery store blooms.
Try To-Go Boxes: Berry boxes bought in bulk online cradled favors like seed packets (from the groom’s dad), recipe cards (from the bride’s mom), and whoopie pies.
