Green Garden

What says summer more than all-green everything? Varying hues—from rich hunter green to soft artichoke green—come together to create a stunning bohemian wedding enhanced by white floral centerpieces, cream-colored dinnerware, and dainty leafy décor at The Sanchez House in St. Augustine. 

SUGGESTED VENUES: Casa Feliz, Leu Gardens, Bella Collina

The tall vintage candlesticks add a romantic touch to the shaded tableau. This page, clockwise: A flower crown is the perfect headpiece for a boho bride. Her white bouquet, wrapped with gold, white and green ribbon, complements the bright green color scheme. The invitations reflect the charming reception look, which includes unique green glassware and a leafy touch on every plate.

TIP: Getting the gilded candlestick look is an easy DIY. Buy different candlesticks at local thrift shops, then apply a coat or two of metallic gold spray paint.

 

Top left, clockwise: Decorating the chairs with ivy and ribbon is a picturesque touch, and a great alternative to the traditional chair sash. Antique trays enhance the boho experience, while white paper leaves create a fairy-tale ceremony or reception backdrop. Make the dessert table a divine spread with a small, two-tier cake, fitting for an intimate guest list, and a selection of macarons, cupcakes, mini pies and Key-lime shooters.

TIP: Worried about an expensive bar tab? Ask your caterer about providing only a signature mixed drink to guests during the reception.
