From ‘I will’ to ‘I do’, Shannon and Lane’s wedding journey was one that focused on the close bonds of their loving families. The groom proposed on a family Thanksgiving holiday in North Carolina, and six months later, they exchanged vows nearby, in an intimate ceremony and reception that honoured their near and dear. This gorgeous wedding by HEATHER PAYNE with florals by one of our faves ABANY BAUER features in Issue 8 of MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE.
“From day one, I wanted an intimate outdoor garden themed wedding. I’m passionate about surrounding myself with pretty things, and I thought that a garden theme would be sweet and romantic. Seeing Lane get emotional during his vows really showed me how much that moment and the union between the two of us meant to him. I’ve never felt so loved.“
“I asked my florist to design a very natural bouquet of garden roses, peonies and daisies. She ended up incorporating large coral charm peonies, as well as a few other lovely accent flowers in my colour scheme of coral, blush, white, bone and blue, and finished it off with beautiful hand dyed silk coral ribbons from my mother-in-law.”
