How I ‘See’ a Wedding…

During a venue walk-through with an amazingly fantastic couple yesterday, I attempted to explain to them how I envision weddings. Constantly drawing from my previous experience in home interiors, my goal for each 2+Hue wedding is that the entire venue is transformed into their home. Perhaps that is one of the reasons that I – quite brazenly – declare the Cypress Grove Estate House to be my most favorite venue. I believe that inspired touches of the couple should saturate the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. From customized mantlescapes to personalized vignettes – it is their day, their way, in their “home”.

I consider each wedding a dinner party on the most grand scale. An evening for the bride and groom to host their most cherished family and friends. Whether they want a rustic celebration full of rich wood tones and mason jars, an elegant vintage affair punctuated by antique silver and mercury glass, a truly southern fete steeped in biscuits and honey, fancy florals or centerpieces reminiscent of fields of wildflowers, declare yourselves!

Be who you are.

Have the perfect wedding that reflects you.

I thought of this as I threw together an impromptu dinner party at my home recently.

Everything that appeared at the soiree was distinctively Sarah.

Astors, yarrow, larkspur, and Queen Anne’s lace simply make my heart sing.

And, of course, a sprinkling of mismatched vintage china.

All of the above images are things that I love.

Your wedding should be full of details that you love.
