Let me start this all off by saying I LOVE Alicia! She used to work at Seaport Flowers and helped put my wedding together with the team there so when I found out she was getting married, I knew it was going to be awesome. And was I disappointed? Not a bit!
Having met in Brooklyn even though both had southern roots, they decided to get married at the Boathouse in Prospect Park. Their wedding was CHOCK full of DIY projects, from the pennants and escort cards, to Alicia making the bouquets and redesigning her wedding dress from JCrew!
Art as favors…the couple screenprinted and frames art from Adam of birds in the region. Each was unique!
A table runner of pompoms and vintage glass vases filled with flowers like ranunculus, hydrangea, lilac, sweet pea, dusty miller, peony, queen anne’s lace, spirea, garden roses, agapanthus, billy balls, football mums, baby’s breath, and yarrow, all in yellow and white.

I popped in over at Seaport Flowers over the weekend to get myself some pretty flowers, and Amanda mentioned she had discovered a twin sister florist team called Leif out in Utah…how beautifully organic are their arrangements?

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Amy and her team at Seaport Flowers. We met with them a few times over the year and they always understood what I was going for with our flowers. Towards the end I was losing steam with everything going on, and I left all the church decorations up to Amy, the only direction she had was color….what she came up with was beautiful and exactly what we didn’t even know we wanted. Everyone should just stop by her store for a bit of inspiration.

Jessy was amazing in taking on this task…I honestly told her to do whatever she wanted, and she came up with these beautiful arrangements of purple flowers in galvanized tins and moss….so beautiful, in fact, I brought them back to the hotel to decorate my room so I could enjoy them a little longer. With zero direction from me, she really did a stellar job.

You guys have been so patient…so here are some more shots from the wedding. I’ll be taking Monday off for Memorial Day (we’ll be in Louisiana this weekend having a mini-wedding reception for Chad’s family), but next week, I’ll be starting vendor reviews, while finishing up with my coverage of NSS. Have a great weekend!!
