One of my favorite parts of my job is discovering all of the churches, halls, and venues scattered around our small hometown. Just when I think I’ve seen them all, a bride introduces me to a new hidden gem. Last weekend, Jen and Jon said “I do,” at Homeland Methodist Church, a historic chapel built in 1887 that just oozes character and charm. Hardwood floors, arched stained glass windows, simple wood pews, and beautiful natural light. When C and I delivered the flowers Saturday morning, I spent a little extra time snapping [too many] photos.

Jen’s colors were pink, ivory, and gray. I used Sweet Akito pink roses and mini calla lilies in her bouquet, with seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller. The girls’ bouquets had the same pink roses, mixed with ivory roses, lisianthis, and blue thistle.

I made pink pomanders (or “kissing balls”) to hang on every other pew down the aisle. It took over 450 pink carnations to make eight of those babies!

On days like that one, when the work is done and I have a few quiet moments to take it all in, I pinch myself and think, “is this really my job?!”

    I love the Pomander’s used in this church. So pretty.

    I hope this blog inspires you as much as it’s inspired me.

    Enjoy <3

    I love this post! The church is so pretty too! I love the Pomanders! Are they expensive? I’m based in the UK but currently planning my wedding. X

      First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!

      Pomanders are really beautiful, but they can be a bit pricey because it takes a lot of flowers to create them. These were made with carnations, which is one of the least expensive options. They’re usually available in different sizes, which can help with the budget, too.

      Happy planning!

    I don’t think I’ll ever get married in a church, but I absolutely LOVE the pom pom-style flowers hung by ribbons.. so chic!
