Katie & Scott at The Solarium in Oakhurst

 The Solarium in Oakhurst is an excellent venue for a ceremony and/or reception.  Or a rehearsal dinner, for that matter!   I've been promoting this venue ever since it opened.  It is in my neighborhood and I have attended many different types of functions there. 

This sweet little wedding was held in May and the bride was excited to use garden flowers in vintage tins and mason jars that she had collected. 

Bouquets consisted of daisies, roses, scabiosa, hydrangea, mint, astilbe, nerines, button mums and spray roses in a bright colorful mix.

Additional flowers such as sea thistle, tweedia, and cornflower along with ruscus and tree fern completed the summer, gardeny feel for the tables.

On of my favorite containers to use for gardeny, vintage, rustic weddings are old oil lamps.  The bases make very cool table centerpieces.

The groom at this wedding has his own landscape company so we actually bartered a portion of the wedding flower cost.  It's old fashioned, but they got wedding flowers and I've gotten some badly needed yard work done!
